F1 - 1979 Zandvoort GP - G. Villeneuve driving on two wheels
Gilles Villeneuve, who made it through the first lap ahead of Jean-Pierre Jabouille, passed Jones at Tarzan on lap 11. He gave the lead back to Jones when he spun on lap 47. On lap 51, just after passing the pits, Villeneuve's left rear tyre exploded causing him to spin. He regained control to begin one of the wildest laps in history. He drove an entire lap on two tyres, the right front was in the air and the left rear was shredding rubber and sparking with the pavement. Reaction was mixed. It was either an act of the ultimate competitor not wanting to give up or an irresponsible, emotional decision. Either way he was out as his suspension was too damaged to rejoin the race.
F1 - 1969 Monaco GP - Race report
The entry for Monaco was much as normal although Jochen Rindt was still
recovering from breaking his nose in his crash in Barcelona and so Team
Lotus ran Richard Attwood as his replacement alongside Graham Hill. The
field was bolstered by the reappearance of Silvio Moser in an old Brabham
and Vic Elford running in an old Cooper-Maserati entered, aptly, by Antique
Automobiles. There had been considerable worry expressed since the crashes
in Barcelona about the high rear wings used on the cars and after the first
practice the CSI held a meeting and decided on an immediate ban on the
grounds of safety. The first session times were canceled and the qualifying
process started all over again. There were some gripes from the teams but
everyone got down to business and it was Jackie Stewart's Matra which
emerged on pole, ahead of Chris Amon's Ferrari. Jean-Pierre Beltoise in the
second Matra was third on the grid, ahead of Graham Hill while Jo Siffert
(Walker-Durlacher Lotus) and John Surtees (BRM) shared the third row. The
Brabhams of Jacky Ickx and Jack Brabham were on the fourth row, just ahead
of Piers Courage in Frank Williams's customer BT26.
Stewart took the lead at the start with Amon in pursuit. Beltoise was under
pressure from Hill and the Lotus driver moved to third on the third lap. By
lap 10 Stewart had a 10-second advantage. In the midfield Surtees suffered
a gearbox failure in the tunnel and was hit by Brabham. Both drivers
escaped injury. Six laps later Amon's Ferrari retired with a differential
failure and on lap 21 Beltoise's Matra suffered a driveshaft failure and
retired from third place. A lap later the leader Stewart had an identical
problem with his Matra and retired. This left Hill in the lead with a 12
second advantage over Ickx and Courage. The battle for second place
continued until the 49th lap when the Belgian retired with a rear
suspension failure, leaving Courage to finish an impressive second while
Siffert picked up third.

F1 - 1970 Jarama GP - Jacky Ickx & Jackie Oliver accident
At the start of the race Jack Oliver's BRM collided with Ickx's Ferrari and
both cars caught fire but both drivers escaped with relatively minor
injuries, Ickx suffering a few burns. The cars however were both destroyed
and continued to burn for some time. BRM immediately called in Rodriguez to
check the suspension as Oliver reported an axle failure. The car was

F1 - 1980 Monaco GP - Derek Daly crash
The 1980 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on
May 18, 1980. It was the sixth round of the 1980 Formula One season. The
race was the 38th Monaco Grand Prix. The race was held over 76 laps of the
3.34-kilometre circuit for a total race distance of 254 kilometres.
It was won by Carlos Reutemann driving a Williams FW07B. The win was
Reutermann's tenth Formula One victory and his first since the 1978 United
States Grand Prix. He also became the fifth winner in six races of the 1980
season. Reutemann won by 1 minute and 13 seconds over French driver Jacques
Laffite driving Ligier JS11/15. Third was Brazilian driver Nelson Piquet
driving a Brabham BT49. Piquet's third place moved him past René Arnoux
and Alan Jones into the lead of the world championship for the first time.
The race however is remembered for a memorable and spectacular crash at the
start of the race when Derek Daly collided with Bruno Giacomelli's Alfa
Romeo 179, which sent Daly's Tyrrell 010 flying over Giacomelli and landing
between teammate Jean-Pierre Jarier and Alain Prost's McLaren M29. All four
drivers were out on the spot, but none suffered any serious injury. Jan
Lammers also collected damage in his ATS D4 but was able to continue. The
accident was particularly disappointing for McLaren after John Watson
failed to qualify for Monaco's shortened 20 car grid.
Fourth was West German driver Jochen Mass driving an Arrows A3 one lap down
on Reutemann ahead of Canadian Gilles Villeneuve in a Ferrari 312T5. A
further lap down in sixth was dual-World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi in a
Fittipaldi F7. For Mass and Fittipaldi it would be last world championship
points they would collect.
Reutemann's win put Williams in the lead of the constructor's points race
by five points over Ligier.
F1 - 1975 Montjuïc GP - James Hunt accident
After the first-corner madness ceased, James Hunt was shown as the leader.
Shockingly, Andretti had managed to keep going, and was running in second.
John Watson was in third, Rolf Stommelen was fourth, Brambilla fifth, and
Carlos Pace sixth.
On lap four, the engine in Jody Scheckter's Tyrrell blew, and the oil
dumping onto the circuit caused Alan Jones and Mark Donohue to crash. Three
laps later, Hunt also slipped in the oil and crashed. The top three had
become Andretti, Watson, and Stommelen. Watson's car suffered from
vibrations and dropped out. Andretti's rear suspension lasted only seven
more laps before it failed, causing him to crash out of the lead.
Jean-Pierre Jarier and Brambilla stopped to change tyres, whilst Tom Pryce
and Tony Brise tangled. Stommelen was now in the top spot, followed by
Pace, Ronnie Peterson, Jochen Mass, and Ickx. On lap 24, Peterson was out
after he tangled with François Migault while trying to lap the Frenchman.
Le Mans - 1981 - Jean-Louis Lafosse fatal crash
The race was marred by the death of Jean-Louis Lafosse, who violently
crashed his Rondeau in the early stages on the Hunaudieres while following
the Lola T600 of de Villota/Edwards/Fernandez. No cause has ever been
determined although a piece of debris is seen flying away from the car just
before the Rondeau suddenly steers to the right, along with pre-crash
photographs showing evidence of damage from an off-track excursion,
suggesting suspension failure as a possible cause.
Thierry Boutsen, who would go on to drive in Formula One, had earlier
escaped a large accident in the second hour, destroying his WM-Peugeot but
without causing injury to himself; a marshal was fatally injured in the
