36 yrs later, Patrese has finally managed to drive Lancia LC1 in a Martini suit.
Back in 1982, Lancia's drivers wore the Martini suit both in WSC and WRC
Ghinzani even had a Martini helmet instead of his Fittipaldi's look-a-like!
A funny guy wanted Riccardo Patrese to wear the Brabham-Parmalat suit in all of his races for contract reasons!
And that's why it took so long to see Patrese drive the Lancia LC1 in regular uniform with the iconic stripes!
