Jean Alesi Drives Famous # 27 Ferrari To Canadian Victory - June 11, 1995

June 11, 1995
The Canadian Grand Prix was notable for having produced the only Grand Prix victory for French driver Jean Alesi. This was seen as a popular victory, as Alesi was driving the red number 27 Ferrari, as famously driven by Canadian hero Gilles Villeneuve.

Adding to the victory was the fact that the win also occurred on Alesi's 31st birthday. This race also marked the last time to date that a Grand Prix was won by a car with a V12 engine.
