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.

Abends um 21.12 Uhr hörte das Herz des Kämpfers auf zu schlagen (Quelle: "Faszination Formel1 2003) Bitte bewerten und kommentieren
