Tunnel vision of victory for Jean-Pierre Beltoise at Monaco, 1972
Monaco’s glamour and lustre evaporates when the clouds roll in and the rain begins to fall. But this was of little concern to Jean-Pierre Beltoise, who was about to score his first – and only – Formula 1 victory. In diving ahead of the pole sitter Emerson Fittipaldi at the start, Beltoise secured himself the only clear view of the circuit, which he would retain for the whole two-and-a-half-hour race.
