Gilles wins at Monaco

The start of the Monaco 1981 grand prix race was delayed after a fire in the Loews Hotel kitchens, which necessitated the fire service pumping large quantities of water to put the fires out. Water then seeped through the floors of the hotel and into the tunnel, delaying the race for an hour. Nelson Piquet led for much of the race, but crashed out late on. New race leader Alan Jones then suffered a fuel feed problem in the latter stages of the race, allowing Gilles Villeneuve in his Ferrari, to take his first victory since 1979 as well as becoming the first, and to this day, the only Canadian to win in Monaco as well as the only driver from the whole of North America to win in Monaco.

Banging wheels at Eau Rouge

This is a scene from the 1970 Spa Francorchamps 1000 kilometres race, which counted for the World sports cars championship. Team mates at Wyer Porsche, with their Gulf liveried Porsche 917’s, Jo Siffert and Pedro Rodriguez were banging wheels going into Eau Rouge, with Siffert coming out best and eventually won the race.

Schumi’s greatest victory

1997 Monaco grand prix was probably the best race of Michael Schumacher’s carrier.  He started the race from the second place on the grid and was leading by 22 seconds on lap 5. Behind him the Jordans, which both had the car set for rain, took second and third spots, the then dominant Williams cars were gambling on drying conditions, which proved to be a catastrophic move and were behind before they were eventually forced to retire. Schumi won the race with a comfortable 53 second advantage.

Gilles!

Gilles Villeneuve is one of the most celebrated F1 drivers in the history of the sport. Here we can see him driving a Ferrari 312T3, during the 1978 USA Grand Prix. Sadly he left us way to soon.
