This is probably one of the most celebrated moments in F1 racing history. In 1979, during the French Grand Prix, Renault driver René Arnoux and Ferrari driver Gilles Villeneuve battled wheel-to-wheel (touching numerous times actually) giving racing fans something to cherish in their hearts (and Youtube) forever! Believe it or not, what you are about to witness is a fight for 2nd place. 2nd place!!!! That was the time when F1 racing was an epic battle.

Stay tuned! Pun intended.
