As Formula One returns home to the “Cathedral of Speed”, here is a look back at some of the memorable races contested on Italian soil at the legendary Autodromo Internazionale Monza.

#1 1967

Previous Slide 1 / 10

One of Formula 1’s greatest drivers, Jim Clark, produced a magical drive at the “Temple of Speed” in 1967. Driving for Lotus-Ford he had secured pole position and led the race comfortably but at half-way stage disaster struck in the form of tyre puncture. He lost crucial time on pits and rejoined in 16th with a lap down.
 

What he did next was beyond belief as he tore through the pack setting fastest times lap by lap. As the lap times plummeted, he was matching his own qualifying pace and in the penultimate lap he blasted past Jack Brabham and John Surtees to regain the lead much to the shock of the spectators and the entire paddock. 

However, Clark couldn't make it work till the end as a faulty fuel pump in the final lap made his car to lose engine power. Surtees and Brabham went past him and Clark coasted to take the chequered flag in third and delivered a heroic performance.
