Flying Finish
Audi driver Laurens Vanthoor made history by becoming the first driver to win a race and a title on his roof last year, following a massive crash at the Macau FIA GT World Cup. It’s almost certainly the first race won by Pirelli where the tyres weren’t actually in contact with the ground as well. The incident brought out the red flags, which meant that Vanthoor was actually declared the winner, being the last person to lead a full lap. But there have been several highly unconventional wins before, so Vanthoor, who recently signed for Mercedes, is in good company.
