F1 flashback: Jean Alesi’s lone win at the 1995 Canadian Grand Prix


Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the 1995 Canadian Grand Prix, which marked Jean Alesi’s lone Grand Prix victory.

Alesi survived a chaotic race en route to his first and, as it turned out, only victory in more than 200 Grands Prix.

It occurred on his 31st birthday, June 11, 1995, and was the final win for the Ferrari V12 engine and the iconic No. 27, made famous by Canada’s Gilles Villeneuve.

Alesi ended ahead of Jordan teammates – and future Ferrari drivers – Rubens Barrichello and Eddie Irvine. Alesi, of course, ended his career with Jordan in 2001.
