1967 Monaco Grand Prix


The 1967 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One race held at Monaco on May 7, 1967.

Race report

The opening few laps were eventful - Jack Brabham spun in front of Bruce McLaren and Jo Siffert who collided taking avoiding action, whilst Jim Clark had to take to the escape road. Jackie Stewart swept past into the lead until his crownwheel and pinion broke on lap 14. Hulme led from Lorenzo Bandini and McLaren held Chris Amon at bay until he was forced into the pits to change a battery. Clark's heroic battle from 14th up to 4th ended with broken suspension on lap 43, whilst Bandini's chase ended in horror when he clipped the chicane and crashed upside down in flames amongst the straw bales. The rescue operation was hopelessly inadequate and Bandini died a few days later from burns - the tragedy overshadowing Denny Hulme's first victory on one of the world's most difficult circuits.
