1976: James Hunt calls for champagne after winning the British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch 38 years ago. Hunt went on to win the world championship and his famous battle with Niki Lauda that season would become the subject of the 2013 film Rush. Hunt had originally been disqualified at Brands Hatch after a first-corner crash brought out the red flags, but he was reinstated for the restart after fears of crowd trouble. Eventually, after various appeals and two months later in Paris, Hunt was disqualified again and the race awarded to Lauda.
