Tambay
A few days ago we lost Patrick Tambay, a great driver and one of those privileged people who raced for the "Scuderia". After making his debut in 1977 with Surtees, he went on and drove for the Theodore Racing team in the following race. Later he had a modest period at McLaren in 1978 and 1979, and ended up joining Ferrari as a substitute for Giles Villeneuve after his tragic loss at the Zolder Grand Prix in 1982. It was precisely at Ferrari where he obtained his best results, achieving two victories and being a participant in the Ferrari constructors' titles of 1982 and 1983.

After two more years in the Renault team and a last one in Haas (which was nothing similar to the current one), he concludes his journey in F1, successfully racing in several editions of the Paris-Dakar. And let's not forget his participations at Le Mans with Renault, Rondeau or Jaguar, in addition to his two Can-Am titles. But despite such an extensive and varied racing career, without a doubt his greatest fame and his memory is associated with his participation with Ferrari at the controls of that gorgeous 126C3.

From SpotModel we make this little tribute to him and we toast to this ace of the races. :)
