Monaca Harbour, 1950 and 1955
In the 1950s at the Monaco Grand Prix, before the track was separated and safety measures put in place, the track was susceptible to waves pulled in from the harbour. In 1950, a huge wave soaked the track at Tabac which caused a pile up of ten cars - more than half the field. Then in 1955 Alberto Ascari left the track completely and plunged into the sea. Had it not been for his quick thinking he could have drowned. He was immediately transferred to a stretcher and taken to hospital.
