I take you back to June 22nd 1975 The Dutch Grand Prix. Zandvoort.
Having won the previous 3 Grand Prix, everyone arriving on race day were expecting another Lauda Ferrari victory. Qualifying was a Ferrari shut out with Lauda on pole and teammate Regazzoni in 2nd. 3rd was James Hunt driving for the one car, last true privateer team Hesketh Racing.
Due to the earlier rain, all cars started on wets but on lap 8, Hunt made the inspired decision to be the first to switch to slicks. He rejoined the race in 19th but within 5 laps was up to 3rd.
On lap 13 Lauda pitted for slicks, race leader Regazzoni 2 laps later. This put Hunt in the lead with 61 laps still to go. The last 33 with Lauda up his gearbox.
Hunt crossed the finishing line just 1 second ahead of 2nd placed Lauda. Hesketh Racing, the underdog squad had achieved the impossible. An against all odds victory that would go down in F1 folklore.
