Most memorable moment in French GP

The 1989 French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard is best remembered for a huge first-corner crash caused by Mauricio Gugelmin in the Leyton House, who locked his brakes and hit the back of Thierry Boutsen’s Williams.

The Leyton House ended upside down on Nigel Mansell’s Ferrari, and the race had to be restarted.

However, in the next year’s race, Gugelmin and his Leyton House teammate Ivan Capelli almost won the race but fell short.
