The Dutch Grand Prix, Zandvoort, 27th August
Ronnie Peterson shadows team leader Mario Andretti in
their dominant 'Black
Beauty' Lotus 79s. Andretti won the race for John Player
Team Lotus in chassis
79/4 with Peterson just 0.3 seconds adrift at the flag in
79/2; an emphatic
victory and the last 1-2 for Team Lotus. Ronnie was a
loyal team mate, dutifully
supporting number one driver Mario to his World
Championship title and helping
to secure the Constructors' title with his runner-up spot.
The popular Swedish
driver won two 1978 Grand Prix to Andretti's six and this
race proved to be
Andretti's last F1 victory. Tragically it was Peterson's
last finish, as
disaster struck at the start of the next race, at Monza.
