taped up shoes relaxing on a tyre, who do they belong to? i have done my research and found the car most likely is a cooper t86 brm..my search was based on word that was going around that it was 1968. read somewhere that it could be Rindt

It has to be 1968. Before that, advertising on the cars was not permitted, and the front fins wouldn’t have been there. After 1968, no works Coopers. So, definitely a Cooper T86B in 1968. Rindt drove for Brabham that year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t him.

Apparently those are Jo Siffert's feet. Monza 1968. Photo by Rainer W. Schlegelmilch.

 

EDIT: But the car is probably Vic Elford's. So maybe they are Vic Elford's feet and whoever maintains Schlegelmilch's collection was mistaken.

you have got it right, i found out on social media, its Jo Siffert..i also noticed that the car was a cooper brm and not maserati but a website devoted to the photographer say it is in fact Jo Siffert

Some wonderful pictures on that website, thanks for posting Pierre. The 917 at Daytona and jumping at Nurburgring are amazing shots-Cooper Maserati at latter? I had no idea how young he was, quite a guy.

Yes, and it's interesting to see that the Walker team carefully looped the white stripe all the way around the nose.
