Think this year’s title battle is lined up perfectly? Well it’s nothing compared to the 1997 season finale at Jerez. Jacques Villeneuve was trailing Michael Schumacher by a single point and while qualifying for the race set the fastest time of 1:21:072, a time which seemed unbeatable.
Schumacher put in his lap and unbelievably, set exactly the same time as his rival. If that wasn’t enough, Villeneuve’s team mate Frentzen set his time, a 1:21:072. All three drivers had set identical times.
