Hmm, sounds like a tie! Apt given the answer! But @debaser91 has it in the posting order. Unlucky @lotus22! @bradley13 you have the Frentzen role here! Or perhaps Hill (4th on the grid, less than a tenth from a pole position in an Arrows-Yamaha!).. Frentzen letting Villeneuve pass on lap 8 set up the title showdown later in the race (Schumi vs. Villeneuve).
Interestingly, it’s been said that if Schumi hadn’t tried to break Villeneuve’s suspension (repeating 1994′s success on Hill), Jacques might have overshot the corner and been in the grass/gravel, that Schumi then got stuck in with a broken right front wheel….. If only Schumi had done a cutback instead!
PS. Not sure if Hill ever had a test with Sauber (when Frentzen took his seat)? That’s one to check out on grandprix.com news archives!
