The next King of Spain. 2001 Spanish Grand Prix.
Heinz-Harold Frentzen gets it wrong during torrential weather at the rain soaked Spanish Grand Prix, 1996.
A first lap crash between Jackie Oliver and Jacky Ickx looks a lot worse than it was. Although Ickx was hospitalised with burns, he made a full recovery and was racing at the next Grand Prix at Monaco.
1970 Spanish Grand Prix, Jarama.

There is a whole long story about the stupid FISA-FOCA war and how it turned this race from a Championship to a non-Championship race because FISA and FOCA hated each other (you can read about it all on Wiki), but I just like this nice photo of Patrick sitting in an Alfa.
Nige leading Nelson, 1987 Spanish Grand Prix.
The French Boys.
Jean Alesi and Olivier Panis walk arm-in-arm after a sensational performance by Panis in the Bridgestone-clad Ligier. Panis was touted as a potential championship contender until a bone shattering crash at Montreal put an end to his season, breaking both his legs. Although he would race again, he seemed to lack some of the speed he had flashed so vividly in his then-short career. He would continue racing until 2004, before acting as a test driver for two more years and was considered to be one of the finest test drivers around, highly revered by Mika Hakkinen in particular.
