It was indeed an excellent race. Thrilling all the way though and then one of the most amazing climaxes you could imagine :yes:

Now then, time for the next question!

That's a good start, yes. :yes:

Now I just need who was driving that Sauber, and what year the race in Monaco was. Think back to when you saw a scene like that at Monaco... :)

How about the 2004 Monaco Grand Prix when Giancarlo Fisichella collided with David Coulthard?

It looks like in that pic the Sauber has Bridgestone tyres and they switched to Michelins in 2005.

:clap::clap::clap:

Well done!!! Yes it was the 2004 Monaco Grand Prix.

Takuma Sato had one of his customary huge engine failures, leaving a big trail of smoke. In this dust, David Coulthard slowed, only to be hit from behind by the Sauber of Giancarlo Fisichella, who overturned as a result of the impact.

Your turn to ask a question, GRHinPorts! :thumbup:

You don't have to use a picture if you don't want. If you can't think of one over the next few days I'll put another one up. :)

Just so you know though, to insert a picture, copy an image URL from Google Images or something and copy and paste in the middle of the tags that are created when you click "Img".

On the other hand, you could just think of a question that doesn't require a picture :)

OK...let me have a go at this (apologies in advance):

At this race a French team lead for over half the distance but ended up with no points when both cars engines expired within a lap of each other, and there was a yellow flag controversy.

Well I'm not certain about this one. Anyone have any suggestions as to the answer?

The Ligiers at Monza in 1979?
Rising number one of Formula 1, Juan - Juan, one wonders should Juan only win one Formula 1 one year, would Juan have won that one in round one, Juan??

Nice guess because both Ligiers did indeed blow up their engines within a lap of each other..but no cigar because neither lead for half the race.

I thought this might be too easy but maybe my expectations are wrong.

So howabouts I add it all was happening at a new circuits first ever race.

That should make it a cinch.

I might guess it was the renaults as they pioneered the turbo so were far and away quicker than anyone else but the teakettles were notoriously unreliable.

No teakettles in this story unless you consider the 2nd driver of the team we are talking about to be as useful as a F1 driver as a chocolate one.
