Juan Pablo won his first ever Formula 1 race at the Italian Grand Prix #onthisday in 2001 only 5 days after the attacks on the twin towers on September 11th. 3 teams altered their liveries for the race, Ferrari stripped their cars of sponsors and painted the nose of the car black, Jaguar painted their engine cover black aswell while Jordan drove with an American flag on the engine cover. There were also 2 drivers changes heading into Monza, Thomas Enge replaced the injured Burti after Luciano had a massive crash with Irvine in Spa and Alex Yoong became the first Malaysian F1 driver after he replaced Marques at Minardi to partner Alonso. The powerful BMW engines seemed to be a bit to strong for the Ferrari's, Montoya qualified on pole while Barrichello outqualified Michael for the first time in 2001. Michael shared the 2nd row with brother Ralf while Trulli once again qualified brilliantly in 5th ahead of Coulthard and Hakkinen. Michael Schumacher tried to get the grid together ahead of the race to maintain position in the first 2 corners out of respect for 9-11 and the marshal who was killed into turn 3 the previous year, Briatore, Walkinshaw and Villeneuve refused so the plan failed. Funnily enough it was Villeneuve who got swarmed by cars into turn 1 including a fast starting Verstappen who would make up 11 positions on the opening lap. Trulli would get hit by Button which send him into a spin. The race soon settled into a rhythm with Montoya leading Barrichello and Michael and Ralf, Jos who had started 19th was already up in 5th after Coulthard dropped out of the race with engine problems. Barrichello and Schumacher were on the 2 stop compared to Williams team who were on the 1 stop, Barrichello soon overtook Montoya with a lighter car knowing that he needed to make up ground. Jos Verstappen sadly retired from 7th after an impressive race from the Dutchman. Both Ralf and Juan Pablo jumped Barrichello and Schumacher during the pitstop phase, Rubens passed

I often struggle to put into exact words how or why I eat, sleep and breathe this sport, but when it’s been with you your whole life, when it means something deep every time you think about it, when you don’t have many friends to engage in high-level conversation but you still are obsessed, that’s when you know you have something special - not many people can say they have one: A passion.
🇮🇹 - GP de Monza - 1989 🇫🇷 - Alain Prost 🇬🇧 - McLaren MP4/5 Mais uma vez o GP da Itália, nesse post temos o vencedor da prova em 1989, o francês Alain Prost, que além da vitória ficou marcado por um momento inusitado na carreira do tetra campeão mundial. Prost estava em guerra com a McLaren de Ron Dennis e já havia assinado contrato para correr com a equipe de Maranello para a temporada seguinte. O francês acusava a montadora Honda de produzir unidades de potencia adequadas ao estilo de pilotagem de Ayrton Senna e de fornecer propulsores piores para ele. Diante deste cenário Prost que estava há 11 pontos na frente de Senna, viu o brasileiro fazer mais uma daquelas pole positions espetaculares, enquanto o francês largou em quarto. Após as luzes apagarem Senna logo disparou na ponta, chegando a abrir mais de 22s para o Alain, mas na segunda metade da corrida, por irônia do destino o motor japonês deixou Ayrton parado na parabólica e assim Prost assumiu a liderança para vencer a corrida e disparar ainda mais na disputa do campeaonato. Para delírio dos fãs italianos que já o viam como ídolo antes mesmo de pilotar para Ferrari. No podio Alain Prost jogou o troféu para os Tiffosi, deixando Ron Dennis furioso, que chegou a ameaçar romper o contrato do francês antes mesmo de terminar a temporada. #f1#f1history#prost#alainprost#ayrtonsenna#senna#mclarensenna#mclaren#monza#f1memories#f1tbt#gpdaitália#granprix
