OLIVER PANIS

Without doubt the highlight of his career so far was the win at the Monaco Grand Prix in 1996, which was as wonderful as it was unexpected with only 6 cars finishing the race.1998 was not a great year for the Frenchman - he failed to score a point all year in the uncompetitive Prost. Nevertheless, he is back for a sixth year with the team to try again,and his inability to communicate with others has done his chanches no good at any other team. Hopes will be higher for this year given that the team have been working furiously on the 99 car since halfway through last season. The low moment came in a bad shunt at the Canadian Grand Prix in 1997 when he broke both his legs. 1998 No points, despite driving all 17 races in the Prost 1997 Finishes 9th in the World Championship rankings after missing part of the season through injury 1996 Finishes 9th in a season notable for his maiden GP victory at Monaco 1995 Finishes 8th, capturing second place in Australia in the final GP of the season. 1994 Makes his F1 debut with Ligier at the Brazilian GP.
