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.
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

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 - 1984 Monaco GP - Martin Brundle Crash
The 1984 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on
June 3, 1984. It was the sixth round of the 1984 Formula One season.
The race, held amidst heavy rain, was one of the most contentious in
Formula One history, and announced the emergence of at least two new stars.
Alain Prost took the first of his four victories at the circuit.
After a 45-minute rain delay, (the track was so wet that the drivers
requested that the officials water down the tunnel section because the
soaking wet cars would be more difficult to drive on a dry surface with wet
tyres) pole-sitter Prost led the race from the start, while contact between
René Arnoux and Derek Warwick pitched Warwick's car into that of his
team-mate Patrick Tambay. Both drivers suffered leg injuries, and Tambay
missed the next round in Canada.
Ferrari F1 V6 vs V12 PURE Sounds!
I have filmed a group of V6 and V12 powered Ferrari Formula 1 cars from the
past, such as the F1 F93, 412 T2 and 126CK. The sound of these good old
V12s was just deafening and it was truly awesome to hear these glorious F1s
racing around SPA-Francorchamps, one of the most legendary racetracks of
