Damon Hill congratulating and consoling team mate Jacques Villeneuve after his maiden Grand Prix at Melbourne, 1996. Starting from pole position, the French-Canadian Indy 500 winner and son of former Ferrari hero Gilles Villeneuve, lead most of the race before a small off damaged the rear of his car, causing it to spill oil all over his close following team mate. To stop the car from completely failing all together, Villeneuve had to drop off the pace which allowed Hill to pass and take the first win of what would be a dominant season for the two Williams drivers.
Naturally thrilled with a stunning debut where he outqualified and outpaced his esteemed and more experience team mate, Villeneuve was left deflated after failing to win due to a small mistake.
