I believe you may be misremembering an incident that occurred with Jarno Trulli at the 2004 French Grand Prix, while he was driving for Renault. Trulli was 3rd on the final lap, but with only a few corners to go, he ran wide and allowed Rubens Barrichello to overtake him, losing out on a podium finish. Trulli wasn't sacked immediately after the incident, but it did sour his relationship with the team, and he was ultimately sacked with three races to go, having failed to score any points since the French GP.
