[#ligier50years - Story #24] After his victory in Belgium, Didier Pironi clinched his first pole position at the Monaco GP on 18 May 1980. He outpaced Reutemann who seemed his most ferocious rival. Laffite was 5th with the 2nd Ligier JS11/15. Pironi led the race. At the Casino Round About, he slipped and hit the barriers. He restarted but had to retire eventually. Laffite was 2nd behind Reutemann. The rain started to pour. The FISA decided not to stop the race while all the cars were wearing slicks and the track was getting more and more wet and dangerous. Yet, Laffite managed to hold on and to keep his 2nd place until the finishing line! . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #classicF1 #f1 #ligierF1 #ligierjs11 #retrogp #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #jacqueslaffite #didierpironi #reutemann #williams 📸 DPPI Images

[#Ligier50years – Story #23] 1980 Belgium GP at Zolder. First victory of the season and first GP victory of Didier Pironi. The Ford Cosworth Ligier JS11/15 had an increased ground effect to face the rise of turbo engines. Pironi made a great start and took the lead. He held onto the first position for the entire race and finished in front of Jones and Reutemann on the Williams. Laffite was 11th after multiple incidents. He knew at that point that he would have to deal with a fearsome teammate! . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #whenracingwasracing #didierpironi #jacqueslaffite #williams #zolder #classicF1 #f1 #ligierF1 #ligierjs11 #retrogp #F1Heroes #F1photography 📷 @dppiimages
