Close Teammates…Very close

7

Which two teammates suffered mechanical failure on the same lap in two separate Grands Prix?  What team was it?  What races were they?  What laps? And what year was it?  As a hint:  The first race saw and engine failure and a turbo failure while the second race saw two turbo failures.  That should give you the approximate year.

That sounds like a job for Renault’s turbo wizardry to me…
Prost and Arnoux had some happy days together early in the ’80s, just a guess to get us started though…

a good guess but not the two I’m looking for:)

Oh, I have a better guess now. But not off the top of my head at all…
Brabham Alfa-Romeo 1979?
Piquet + Lauda?
Lap 5 at Interlagos and Lap 23 at Zolder, Belgium?

Still not convinced, as my records say one gearbox failure among the four. Sounds too close to be wrong though.

very close guess. I can’t recall if they were turbos though.

Piquet and Fabi in 1984.
