[#Ligier50years – Story #26] GP of Germany, 10 August 1980. Patrick Depailler died during the preliminary tests the week before the GP on Alfa Romeo. All the Ligier team was thinking about him. The Ligier JS11/15 is fast. Laffite won his first victory of the season. Laffite rose to 4th in the Drivers Championship in front of Pironi. A victory that was awaited since the start of the season but that was tainted by the death of his last codriver Depailler. Laffite lost his facial expressions on the podium. . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #classicF1 #f1 #ligierF1 #ligierjs11 #retrogp #hockenheim #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #jacqueslaffite #depailler 📷 @dppiimages

[#Ligier50years – Story #25] “This is the race I most strongly regret. We could have won”, said Jacques Laffite about the France GP at Le Castellet on 29 June 1980. Laffite dominated the tests and clinched his sixth pole position of his career. On Saturday night the mechanics discovered an irreparable gas leak in the Ligier JS11/15 shell and he had to take the start on a mullet. During the tests, Williams decided to change its front tyres to 15 inches Goodyear. Ligier decided to keep its 13 inches tyres. A choice that was not without consequences during the race. As of the 25th lap, his tyres started to overheat and at the 35th lap Laffite was overtaken by Jones on his Williams and by his teammate Pironi who made a bold figure. Pironi finished second in front of Laffite. Still a good result. . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #justraceit #f1 #retrogp #classicF1 #motorsport #jacqueslaffite #williams #jones 📷 @dppiimages

[#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
