The heart-stopping conclusion to the 2008 F1 championship – which saw Lewis Hamilton snatch the title away from Felipe Massa at the last gasp – has been voted the best F1 races of the last ten years by F1 Fanatic readers.

The 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix garnered more than 40% of the votes cast.

Second place went to the 2005 Japanese Grand Prix, which saw another decisive last-lap pass. Kimi R??ikk??nen scorched from 17th on the grid to pass Giancarlo Fisichella for the win on the final lap.

Another race from 2008 – the Belgian Grand Prix – was ranked third, along with many comments about how much better it would have been if the stewards hadn’t got involved…
