On what year became the first individual F1 championship win on the Dunlop tyres?
This is Bertrand Gachot. On what year that picture made and what car is that?

Car is a Jordan-Ford in 1991, sometime prior to the Belgian GP when Gachot was jailed on an assault charge.
Dunlop first became involved in motor racing as a partner of the Vanwall team in 1958,when they won six of the nine rounds of the World Championship it contested. Moss and Brooks won three apiece and the team won the first ever-held Constructors' Championship. I believe the first win came at the Dutch GP held at Zandvoort on May 26, 1958.

A source that I read (http://www.grandprix...pe/tir-002.html) shows that Dunlop's first win was with Vanwall/Moss at the Dutch GP in '58. "The company first became involved in motor racing as a partner of the Vanwall team in 1958". I assumed Dunlop's first win came with Vanwall.
Forix shows Monaco/Trintignant/Cooper T45 winning with Dunlops.
