This Is What Happened When Two F1 Drivers Made A Dare At Spa

Throwback to the 1999 BAR teammates daring each other to take Eau Rouge flat out

We all used to make dares with our mates when we were younger, seeing who could climb a tree the highest or who could ride their bike the quickest. Well this is what happens when two Formula One drivers make a dare.

Jacques Villeneuve dared his young BAR teammate Ricardo Zonta to take Eau Rouge flat out and when an F1 world champion dares you, you don’t want to look like a wuss. Sure enough, they did it.

Villeneuve went up first, completely destroying his car, then when the session was restarted Zonta kept his end of the bargain and did exactly the same thing.

What’s amazing is how casual Villeneuve is about the whole thing afterwards, even saying in the video above, “But I rolled it, which was a bonus!”
