Mark Webber’s pass on Alonso through Eau Rouge was an example of when a grand prix driver has really come of age, racing against another grand prix driver that he has sufficient confidence in. And Alonso would have to be given the credit for being someone that Mark Webber had such trust and confidence in - because trust and confidence is not always the same thing - to be able to execute that manoeuvre, and it was the manoeuvre of the year for me.

Here is Jacques talking about his “big one” at Eau Rouge in 1998. And here is footage of his similar crash in 1999. Thank god he was okay and the only thing damaged was two of the ugliest Formula One cars of the 90’s.
