Me too. And also Nigel Nigel Mansell winning in 94, but it was on Adelaide Street Circuit

i was living in Monty in 96 and it might seem odd that instead of the many races i have seen there live it is Australia 96 on TV that is my best Montreal based f1 memory.

because of the time zones the race was on late Saturday night and being good university students we were naturally out at the bar glued to the TV (well glued to our bar stools anyways) to see what JV would do. his father, Indy rookie of the year, a 500 win in his pocket, the legacy and that legacy's connection to this part of Canada...the hype and excitement was just on a different level.

despite not remembering a single thing that happened, it is a special memory.

Nice intro, just a couple of minor points to correct the record, Jack Brabham's Cooper Bristol was front engines, and you have Lex Wexford instead of Davison as winning 4 times with Schumacher.

Incidentally, Jack Brabham sold his Cooper Bristol to help fund his move to the UK, assuming that cars over there would be much more competitive, but regretted that and said his Australian car that he'd spent years developing would have thrashed the ones in Britain.

Looking forward to this weekend's race, it is always interesting to see how it will go with the new regs.

With the 'podium' already mentioned, one of the most prominent memories for me are the wet races in Adelaide, in particular one of the cars being launched by a kerb and flat-spinning into the wall. Not to forget Mansell!

Going to two consecutive GP's that were both Australian..... the 1995 season finale in Adelaide, and the 1996 season opener at Albert Park.

Seeing Martin Brundle have his huge crash on lap 1, 1996, vaulting into the barriers. Then jumping out of the broken in half Jordan, literally running several hundred metres back to pitlane to get into the spare car, being checked for fitness on the way down pitlane by Sid Watkins for the all clear before jumping in the spare and taking the restart..

Crash in this clip at about 1:20 in.

Great intro as usual BR. Thanks for taking the time and effort. Much appreciated.

I still remember Brundle's crash in the first GP here in 96. Lucky he got out alive. Since then there have been many great memories here

Thanks for that, John. I have now seen that it was apparently mid-engined: https://primotipo.com/tag/1955-australian-grand-prix/

Jack Brabham returned to Oz from his first season in Europe replete with a self-built Cooper T40 Bristol, winning the Port Wakefield race in the 2 litre, 150bhp, 1100lb, mid-engined car. Was it the first time a ‘modern era’ post-war mid-engined car won a national Grand Epreuve?

I think I invented Lex Wexford, adding in an 'ex'!

Thanks for that story.

Yes, I did indeed mean that Eddie Irvine is the only driver to have taken his first Formula 1 win in the Australian Grand Prix.

After writing all the stuff, work beckoned and I should have made time for proof-reading.

Great intro as ever.

Looking forward to the first race of the season. I hope all the changes to the cars actually translate into good, close racing.

That was a mistake on my part anyway, I was thinking of his front-engined Cooper T23 Bristol.

Australian Grand Prix memories:

Mansell's tyre exploding and Schumacher running into Hill, both at Adelaide. At Melbourne, Brundell's crash.

what a great year (or two years i guess) to have been living in Australia!

i would imagine back in the day there were back to back GP's in the same country due to the logistics of the time but surely this is something far more uncommon, even unique, in the modern era.
