1979 GP at Dijon - that’s France by the way!
Rene Arnoux and Gilles Villeneuve had a banging fight that would be unimaginable nowadays but it is one of the most memorable GPs of all time.

Those early turbo cars were supposedly hilarious to drive with the most horrendous turbo lag and then a burst of power that would send the uninitiated straight off the circuit.

I didn't realise until I just googled it that a turbo Renault never won an F1 world championship
