My favourite grand prix of the last 20 years was the 1998 Belgian GP, 1999 European GP, 2000 Japanese GP, 2007 European GP and 2008 Brazilian GP.

Light relief (because they barely affected the championsip): 1999 European Grand Prix, 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix, 2005 Japanese Grand Prix.
Drama: 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix (the best Grand Prix I have ever seen, but not my favourite).

My ultimate favourite was the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix - it was messy, chaotic, unpredictable and although it cost Felipe Massa a championship rightfully his (in my opinion, simply because of all of his great drives that went unfulfilled), it was also obviously a victory for 'Nando, and involved a certain amount of luck, but also a good deal of racecraft from him.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
