Jacques Villeneuve Takes Pole In F-1 Debut - March 10, 1996

March 10, 1996
Jacques Villeneuve becomes the fourth driver to start on pole in their F1 debut.

At the Australian Grand Prix, the race was marked by dominance from the Canadian, who led most of the race but had his debutante run marred by an oil leak late in the race. Williams teammate, Damon Hill, caught and passed Villeneuve, who caked Hill's car with oil leakage. Villeneuve managed to hang on to finish second.

  1. Jacques was unique and under rated at first in F1. At Indianapolis too. I watched him many times and he had his own solutions to difficulties that were encountered.
