The curse of the Yellow cars....

Ok,Ok...I know it's a little late but am I correct in concluding that
Damons win last year means that it's the first time a yellow coloured
car has won a race...?
Yellow to me brings back memories of that ***y Copersucar with old
Emerson behind the wheel.....Anyway is that right?

Weren't Renaults yellow back in early eighties? Surely they won some
races? Just can't remember which.

Senna won at Monoco & Detroit in 1987 driving a yellow Camel Lotus-Honda.

 Do not forget the Penzoil sponsored car of Jim Hall's team  and the
Penske's driven by, among others, Rick Mears in formula Indy.
In Formula 1 , remember the Lotuses of Senna .

And Lotuses (or is it Lotii <g>) in the late 80's.

And Senna won some races with the yellow Camel-Lotus in 1987. And IIRC
Benetton was pretty yellow late eighties to early nineties winning a
couple, so it wasn't even nearly the first victory for a yellow car.
