I Believe I Can Fly

The 1993 Italian GP witnessed a spectacular crash just as the race ended. Damon Hill in the Williams-Renault took the chequered flag but all the drama was unfolding behind him. The two Minardi drivers Christian Fittipaldi and Pierluigi Martini were running nose-to-tail. Then Christian got a little too close to Martini. Fittipaldi’s left front wheel made contact with his teammate’s right rear wheel. The contact launched Fittipaldi’s car into the air where it did a near perfect back flip before landing back on its wheels. The car then skidded across the line. Surprisingly, neither driver was hurt and both finished the race without losing a position.
