German F1 GP 2001 – A great Formula 1 battle

Submitted by on July 19, 2014

German GP 2001Part way through the 2001 German GP, Olivier Panis and Jarno Trulli went toe to toe.

The result was one very memorable battle, held on a greatly missed Hockenheimring layout. It wasn’t a battle for first and second place, it wasn’t even a battle for third or fourth, but it was a tremendous bout none the less!

It’s one of our favorite battles in German GP history, and it’d be a shame if we didn’t take this weekend’s 2014 event as an excuse to share it around. Whilst neither Trulli or Pani were title contenders, they fought as if the championship was on the line. Great stuff.

Spoiler alert: History would see Trulli forced to retire after spinning off, whilst Panis went on to place seventh overall – a well earned seventh if we ever saw one!
