Flashback – Last Race To Date Featuring Slick Tyres

It has been announced yesterday that the F1 teams will be testing slick tyres during the upcoming test in Jerez. So the slicks are returning to the place where they featured last time, 10 years ago at the European Grand Prix 1997 in Jerez. And what a race it was… It was the final race of 1997 season, with Schumacher leading Villeneuve by 1 point …

Famous qualifying – 3 drivers recorded identical time in qualifying for the first time in the F1 history – Jacques Villeneuve, Michael Schumacher and Heinz-Harald Frentzen

Famous win – Mika Hakkinen won his first F1 race

Famous incident – Michael Schumecher hit Jacques Villeneuve during Villeneuve’s overtaking attempt and later got disqualified from the whole season

The race was won by Hakkinen, ahead of Coulthard (both McLaren) and Jacques Villeneuve (Williams). The 3rd place was enough for Jacques Villeneuve to claims his first and only Formula 1 Drivers Title.

    I just realized the coincidence that they are testing in Jerez and last time they raced on slicks was also in Jerez :-) so went for the video and than I realized that was the Schumacher / Villeneuve one :-)
