1973 Canadian GP. I remember reading that they made a complete pig's ear of deploying it. The Safety Car was supposed to pick up the race leader, but picked up Howden Ganley's ISO-Williams. Even Frank knew that Howden wasn't leading, but in the chaos and the rain which immediately preceded the Safety Car, nobody had definitive proof of who should have been leading. A lengthy steward's meeting gave the race to Peter Revson, but they admitted that nobody could prove exactly who had won the event and that Peter was simply the one who they thought was most likely to have won it. As a result, nobody knows to this day whether Peter Revson should have won that race or not.

Taki Inoue was a bit of a crash-magnet in 1995, but his Monaco crash was particularly memorable. Who crashed into him and what car was he driving?

Steven, 1 out of 2. The Safety Car did indeed crash into him (since Taki's car was being towed away at that point, he can't really be blamed for the accident). Now can anyone name the driver?

The things you find searching the net.......
the safety car driver was French rally driver Jean Ragnotti who was taking the safety car out for a jolly.

I hope I am right??

Yes, rom, your answer is absolutely right! Jean Ragnotti was doing a one-off Safety Car run at Monaco because the circuit had a separate contract to run its own cars and drivers in that role back then. He was doing a circuit check and apparently Race Control forgot to tell him that one of the drivers in the previous session had not left the track. As a result, Mr Inoue was flipped over. Surprisingly, he got nothing worse than concussion.

In the 2005 season who would be known as the 'engine killer'??  How many engines did he use for the season with an average of how many Kilometers per engine? 

Bonus point: Who was the Engine saver?? And how many engines did he use??

Rom

I give this about 15 minutes before it is solved....... LOL

That is so annoying.  I came across a photo on the net yesterday of an F1 car on its roof at Monaco which was labeled in Portugese(I think) Jean Ragnotti.  I assumed they had labeled it wrong but clearly it was this incident.

Engine Killer = Kimi Raikkonen. He used the grand total of 12 engines over the course of 2005, five of which broke prematurely. I need to add up how many kilometres he did in F1 race meetings to say how many kilometres per engine.

Engine Saver = Ralf Schumacher. He used ten engines, the only driver to use the theoretical minimum number of engines to do the season.

Ali, Engine killer is wrong.... but nice try.....

bonus question is correct Ralph, but in 2005 6 drivers achieved the perfect result of only 10 engines...

Rom

Main question is still up for grabs
