|1980 Canadian Grand Prix - Complete Race
|The Canadian Grand Prix was the next to last race of the 1980 F1 season, and Alan Jones and Nelson
Piquet were separated by just one point in the battle for the World Championship. Piquet would qualify on
pole with Jones in 2nd, followed by Didier Peroni. The rest of the field had some great names from the
1980 season, including Alain Prost, Carlos Reutemann, Keke Rosberg, and Gilles Villeneuve, while the
reigning World Champion Jody Scheckter failing to qualify.
On the start, heading into turn 1, Jones took the lead, but he and Piquet collided. There was massive
carnage behind them. The race was stopped while the track was cleared. Eight cars were damaged,
including the cars of Nelson Piquet, Keke Rosberg, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti, Gilles Villeneuve,
and Jochen Mass. Many of the drivers involved in the accident restarted in their backup cars.
On the restart, Alan Jones took the lead once again. Nelson Piquet was driving furiously and soon
overtook Jones. But on lap 24, Piquet's engine failed, handing the lead, and quite possible the World
Championship, to Alan Jones. Meanwhile, Didier Pironi was closing on Jones, despite suggestions that he
was about to penalized a minute for jumping the start. Further back, Alain Prost began to close up on
Carlos Reutemann. On lap 26, Jean-Pierre Jabouille's Renault suffered a suspension failure and smashed
into the barriers. Jabouille suffered serious leg injuries and had to be cut from the car.
Didier Pironi's penalty was confirmed, and Alan Jones let Pironi go into the lead. Didier Pironi won the
race, but with his penalty added, he dropped to third. The Williams Team would have a 1-2 finish (Jones
and Reutemann), but more importantly, with Nelson Piquet's DNF, Alan Jones was World Champion.
This is another live TV broadcast with NO COMMENTARY, just the sound of screaming
Ford Cosworth engines, and the occasional voice of the track announcer.
