Motorsport Pron: 1997 Argentine Gran Prix race finish

Going through some mild F1 withdrawal this time of year is ok, because there are plenty of classic battles logged in the history books to relive online. This is a showcase of the final laps of the 1997 Grand Prix of Argentina, where Jacques Villeneuve and Eddie Irvine battle to the checkered flag for Williams Renault and Scuderia Ferrari respectively. To give some perspective, this was post-Senna, but pre-Michael Schumacher dominance. Shuey was on his way though, finishing 3rd overall until a controversial disqualification removed him from the standings and bumped David Coulthard up to his spot. Shuey would finish second overall the following year.
