"Taxi, please ....!"

Sorry for any errors in the English text -
it's a mix of my "school English" and the google translator... :D ;)

1. German Grand Prix - Hockenheim, 07/27/1986

Gasoline drama at the 1986 German Grand Prix:
In second place, Keke Rosberg rolls out the fuel in his Mc Laren in the penultimate lap.
The Finn believes there is a problem with the on-board computer and stays on the accelerator to the last drop.
In a rage, he has to park his equipment in the east curve of the Hockenheimring.
Winner Nelson Piquet takes him with him in the lap of honor on his Williams -
Keke is still ranked fifth.

Incidentally, the same fate overtakes Mc Laren team-mate Alain Prost,
whose car with a Porsche engine rolled out a short time later before the target curve in the Motodrom, also without fuel.
Alain is still trying to illegally push his car across the finish line,
but gives up after a few meters and is still rated 6th ..

2. British Grand Prix - Silverstone, 07/14/1991

Nigel Mansell started with his Williams FW14 as the fastest in training at the home Grand Prix in Silverstone
and leads up to the 36th lap with over 25 seconds ahead of the doggedly fighting Ayrton Senna in the Mc Laren.
What the Brazilian doesn't know ... "the lion" has massive difficulties with his equipment.
His wheel has lost balance weights and the handling of the car is due
the resulting vibrations getting worse -
As a precaution, Nigel heads for his pit to change tires and his lead over Senna
after this involuntary stopover it shrinks to 2.7 seconds.

But Mansell's problems continue despite the Williams driver's leadership:
"For the last ten laps I've had transmission problems ... I was hoping that I could at least get some gear.
I hardly dared to change gears and I only drove the last two laps with one gear ... "

The hapless Senna is now fighting with "blunt weapons" for a place on the podium ...
his Mc Laren has massive fuel problems and on the penultimate lap he loses speed -
The car rolls out "sap and powerless" and, with a lot of luck and one lap behind, Ayrton can book fourth place.
"Magic Mansell" takes the unlucky fellow on the left sidepot of his Williams to the start and finish straight after crossing the finish line.
"Actually, I should knock him down - but so that he only breaks one toe.
But I'm a good police officer and only warned him because he was parked in a dangerous place .. "
fools an overjoyed Nigel, who has now won his third home win.

3. Italian Grand Prix - Monza, 09/06/1987

Ayrton Senna actually leads with his Lotus in the 43rd of 50 laps with a whopping 14 seconds in the royal park of Monza
ahead of the second Brazilian Nelson Piquet on Williams, then Piercarlo Ghinzani, who is about to lap, comes
on the ligier in front of the Parabolica curve in the way ...
Senna drives over his braking point and lands in the gravel bed of the run-out zone.
While Ayrton laboriously digs his way back onto the track through the sand at the exit of the curve,
Piquet takes the lead past the "Off Road Driver" Senna and wins the race.

How much the two Brazilians went to the limits of their possibilities during their duel is shown by the exit round:
Both the Williams and the Lotus run out of fuel.
Lotus team-mate Satoru Nakajima crosses the finish line in eleventh, three laps behind, and has enough time to
"collect" the second placed Senna ...

4. Canadian Grand Prix - Montreal, 06/11/1995

Also in Montreal, the fastest in training, Michael Schumacher, is well ahead in the field after a furious start -
after seven laps, the Rhinelander has increased his lead to six seconds.
Runner-up Damon Hill has creeping transmission problems and is successively replaced by the Ferrari duo
Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger overtaken.
After about half of the race, the lead vehicles come to the pits for a routine stop -
Gerhard Berger reaches his gas station with great difficulty and falls back to 8th place.
while Alesi is frantically asked to save fuel.
Damon Hill is now fighting for third place with the two Jordan pilots Rubens Barrichello and Eddie Irvine,
when suddenly the on-board hydraulics of the Williams finally collapses and the transmission gives up its ghost.
In the 51st of 68 laps, the race for the son of world champion Graham Hill is over.

Twelve laps before the end of the race, Michael Schumacher's leading Benetton suddenly had problems shifting gears ...
third gear gets stuck in the transmission!
With reduced speed, "us' Michael" reaches his boxes to change the steering wheel with the integrated gear buttons
and reload the computer software.
In 7th place, Schumacher resumes the race after a seemingly endless pit stop,
while Jean Alesi in the Ferrari is suddenly washed up at the head of the field.
Alesi is crying with happiness, can no longer see the slope properly and has to pull herself together,
so as not to sail off the track in the last few meters ...

The Ferrari driver crosses the finish line in the Jordan with a lead of over 30 seconds over Rubens Barrichello
and wins his first Grand Prix at the 91st attempt.
With the legendary start number 27 of Gilles Villeneuve, who is still idolized in Canada today, "Giovanni" wins
on his 31st birthday on the "Circuit Gilles Villeneuve" -
actually also a material for a Hollywood script!

A little later, however, he stops without fuel in his work device,
but don't have to walk back to the boxes -
the fifth-placed Michael Schumacher stops and gives Alesi a free "taxi ride" to the start and finish.

1976: The car that never raced - the Hill GH2

Image
The Hill GH2 - seen at the Oldtimer Grand Prix / Nuerburgring 2019

"The GH2 was the first Formula One car that Andy Smallman designed from scratch specifically for Graham Hill's team,
and it was intended for use in the 1976 World Championship season.
It was intended to replace the previous model, the Hill GH1, which had started life as the Lola T371.
The GH2 used the ubiquitous Cosworth DFV engine, and featured a much smaller and streamlined chassis which resembled the Brabham BT44 and McLaren M23.
Tony Brise began testing in the late summer of 1975 at Silverstone, and the times indicated the team could hope for a successful season.
During the final test session at Paul Ricard in November 1975, the GH2 was performing well, being much faster than the GH1 and set up changes had made the car easy to drive.
The test successful, the team packed up and flew back to England...." (source: Wikipedia)

"On the evening of 29 November 1975 Graham Hill was piloting an Embassy Hill Piper Aztec light aircraft from France to London.
His passengers were team manager Ray Brimble, team driver Tony Brise, designer Andy Smallman and mechanics Terry Richards and Tony Alcock.
They were returning from Circuit Paul Ricard where they had been testing the Hill GH2 car being prepared for 1976.
They were due to land at Elstree Airfield before onward travel to London to attend a party. Shortly before 10pm the plane hit trees beside a golf course at Arkley in thick fog. In the ensuing crash and fire everyone on board was killed..." (source: Wikipedia)
