Dedicated to the legends of motor racing past, present and future.

If at first you don't succeed...

Whilst many heroes of the Belgian Grand Prix reside in the 60s and the era of the ferocious Masta Kink, there is an individual in recent years who has become a legend in his own right. Step forward Jacques Villeneuve, the (sometimes) master of Eau Rouge.

 One of his less successful attempts at negotiating the hallowed corner.

OK, so he's had his fair share of shunts there. But it is this resilience to carry on nailing it even after having more than his fair share of big offs that sets him apart from the rest. His continued determination to stick it through Eau Rouge 'flat or else' has endeared him to motorsport fans around the world. The very embodiment of the right stuff.

 The best save ever? Even if not, "New pants, please!"
