Crashes, victories and disqualifications: The very best British Grand Prix races
1976 – James Hunt won, but was disqualified…twice!
Although this race took place over 4 decades ago, the story still stands as one of the most unbelievable turn of events in Formula 1. At Brands Hatch, James Hunt, racing for McLaren-Ford, crashed into Clay Ragazzoni, racing for Ferrari, on the first corner of the first lap. Hunt was able to make it to the pit, but he used a service road to get there.
