[#Ligier50years – Story #18] 😔😤”Never have I come this close to the Title”. Despite a last podium in Holland, 1979 ended on a less upbeat note than it had begun for the “Bleus” who had to settle for a 3rd place in the World Championship. Laffite, 4th in the Drivers classification, concluded: 🎙“The 1979 season is a great story. But a sad one. Never have I come this close to the Title. Never has the Ligier team produced a car this successful, balanced, competitive as the Ligier JS11. Yet we have been defeated: the crux, an insufficient budget, caused our fatigue at mid-season and we lost track on the aerodynamics…” . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #classicF1 #f1 #ligierF1 #ligierjs11 #retrogp #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #jacqueslaffite 📷 @dppiimages

[#ligier50years - Story #17] 🎤 “I managed to take Scheckter by surprise, said Laffite. Afterwards he congratulated me sportively but he added: you took a big risk”. 1979 Zeltweg GP in Austria, the duel Scheckter/Laffite was unparalleled. Laffite finished 3rd with the Ligier JS11 in front of Scheckter. “Outside I could see Guy [Ligier] pumping his fist defiantly to encourage me to beat the South-African [Jody Scheckter] against whom I was fighting since the beginning of the race, added Laffite. Seeing Guy frantic, I knew that I had to try the impossible to satisfy him” . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #classicF1 #f1 #ligierF1 #ligierjs11 #retrogp #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #jacqueslaffite #scheckter #ferrari #lemans #lemans24 📷 @dppiimages

[#Ligier50years – Story #16] After the Belgium GP in 1979, Jacques Laffite was on the run for the World Championship ex aequo with Jody Scheckter. The rest of the season was disappointing: two retirements for the #26 and a 8th place. Scheckter & Ferrari were leading the championship before the Germany GP. Laffite was 3rd. During the race he had no choice but to put on a bold strategy: he kept his tires that were vibrating and managed to finish 3rd, in front of Scheckter. He was up second in the race for the title, 7 points behind Scheckter 🏁🏎 . . . #ligierautomotive #ligier #classicF1 #f1 #ligierF1 #ligierjs11 #retrogp #F1heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #jacqueslaffite #scheckter #ferrari #hockenheim #hockenheimring #ford #cosworth 📷 @dppiimages
