Bourdais deserved the penalty? Must…resist…going…off-topic…
I’m always down on Kimi here so I’ll say his two best drives were Spa 2008 and China 2008 – the poor guy couldn’t go any slower to let Massa get by him and Felipe still made a job of it! Everyone says Suzuka 2005 and it was special, but I would say he showed even more fight at the end of that Belgian race.
Speaking of Massa, I would say Brazil 2008 was his finest drive. He still managed to pull out a pretty commanding performance even with all the pressure on him. And his reaction afterwards endeared me to him for a long while.
Button’s best drive for me would be Brazil 2009. A little clichéd I know but he put in some fine moves that day.
Damon Hill’s for me will always be Suzuka 1996, despite Hungary 1997. on a day when he could take it easy and be world champion, he fought straight off the line and won the race.
For a blast from the past, Sir Jackie Stewart’s 1968 win at the Nurburging. He won in torrential rain by four minutes.
