A look back at Patrick Depailler's finest moment

Patrick Depailler - who would have turned 75 on this day - enjoyed his greatest moment in F1 at Monaco in 1978.

The Frenchman had been on the fringe of victory many times before, but on that day in the Principality it all came together for Patrick as he steered his Tyrrell to a resounding triumph.

A true racer and a free spirit, Depailler's life tragically ended in a testing accident at Hockenheim in 1980, when his Alfa-Romeo crashed at the top gear Ostkurve after a suspension failure.
