The 1959 Monaco Grand Prix; Monte Carlo, May 10, 1959. Stirling Moss turning into the old Gasworks Hairpin at the end of the front straight along the harbor front. Moss qualified his Rob Walker-entered Cooper 51 on pole, the only competitor to get under 1:40. In the race it looked like he had it won until the gearbox failed on the 81st of the 100 laps, leaving the victory to Jack Brabham’s similar works Cooper.
