Classic Grand Prix – 1996 Australia

Lots of trivia here. The first ever Grand Prix start at Albert Park. The first race for Jacques Villeneuve, where he started from pole and so nearly won. The first time we had five lights starting a Grand Prix. Now – everyone praised the strength of Brundle’s Jordan when he crashed, but to me, that car looks extremely fragile. Can you imagine what would have happened if he’d been travelling as fast into the corner as Jacques Villeneuve in 2001, or Alonso a few years ago?
