Mario Andretti picture

Post

Hi there.

Random question but does anyone know who Mario Andretti was racing for and what year this picture was taken? I am gifting it to my father for his birthday and would like some background info on it. I have tried to search the internet to match his racing suit up with the team and I am having a hard time matching it up exactly.Image

(Not so) Simple, I guess...

Olympus was a sub-sponsor in 1978. I see the dutch flag. Mario won the dutch grandprix in 1978.
So I guess winners podium Zandvoort 1978!

Edit: Wrong, in 1978 he had a white outfit in Zandvoort. French flag then. Paul Ricard 1978. Glimpse of Ronnie (yellow) on the left:
