Tambay drove his Ferrari 126C2 to 3rd place in the rain soaked 1982 British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch. Tambay went on to win the German Grand Prix that year.
Our Ed McDonough spoke with Patrick Tambay at the start of this year’s Monte Carlo Historic Rally, followed his progress in a Citroen DS19 over the various stages, and spoke with him again near the finish. Tambay spoke about the car, the rally and how they fit in with his other racing experiences, most notably racing in Formula One for Ferrari.
I did the “real” Monte Carlo rally in 1973 with Jean Ragnotti in a Renault 12 Gordini. In historic events, I have done the Tour Auto in a Jaguar XK 120 and that’s it. The only historic racing I have done is at Goodwood, and that was good because I won the race with Pescarolo.
