Best f1 race ever

Post by kimi and mika » 24 Oct 2007, 13:12

What is your favourite F1 race and also say why, I think the best one is Brazil 2003, here are some vids of it:

Why it was good:

Tight battle at front, about 6 different leaders or more.

Safty car came out about 4 times, 5 if race wasn't stopped. Lots of cars all spun on same corner, including M.S.

The huge crash with webber, alonso unlucky.

Nobody knew who the winner was untill 2 days later...

I think Fisicchella first got the win on race day then a day later raikkonen won then fisicchella got the win (it is on the F1 website)

Cheers mate, that was all good I remember it well
note: If Kimi had of won that race, as first thought,he wouldve been WDC - but good on Fisi
.. although ..

I would probably go for Suzuka 2005 myself ..

Monaco 1996 : Only six cars finished - four of them went off in the lead.
"On a given day, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further" - Senna.

i remember watching that race live n thinking that only Rubens or David deserved the win then... their lap times were much quicker then rest of the field... I think they were in 1:23s while the rest of the field was doing 1:27s in wet conditions... n that mistake that kimi made and let fisi past cost him the drivers championship...

anyhow my pick is Suzuka 2005

I cant pin point one race so here's whats been going through my mind.....

1984 Monaco Grand Prix
-In torrential rain Senna showed himself to the world.
1985 Monaco Grand Prix
-Due to the accident between Piquet and Patrese at Ste Devote, Michele Alboreto got a punctured tyre and lost which most certainly would have been his first Monaco victory yet still was able to bridge most of the lost time to Prost.
1989 Hungarian Grand Prix
-Mansell starts the race in 12th place, makes a few positions at the start, then one by one reals the leaders in to finally overtake Senna (who was THE master in lapping back markers) whilst ALSO lapping Stefan Johannsen.
1995 Belgian Grand Prix
- A titanic battle between Hill (wet tyres) and Schumi (dry tyres)
1998 Hungarian Grand Prix
- Schumi was stuck in third place behind Coulthard, but with a brilliant strategy and the ability to drive in qualifying mode for more than half the race, took the win!

Theres probably more, but i dont want to take over this thread! lol
Find the line, the speed will come.
