    Sorry if this is already a topic, Couldn’t find one like it on the forum.
    I was thinking about what race I could watch to see each driver at the top of their game.
    So anyone that has any suggestions of races that fulfil this criteria just post.
    Like Button in canada 2011 for example

    I find it interesting that it took 4 comments before somebody listed the same race as somebody else for Hamilton, despite 2 commenters having given 2 examples each. I’d possibly go for Germany 2011 (he still had highlights in his worst season).

    I forgot to add Jenson Button in my initial post, and since I can’t edit it, I would say that Hungary 2006 and Canada 2011 were his two best drives.

    A few drivers not currently on the grid:

    Webber: Monaco 2012
    Di Resta: Bahrain 2013
    Kovalainen: Hungary 2008
    Pic: Brazil 2012
    Glock: Singapore 2009
    Trulli: Monaco, I don’t remember which year
    Alguersuari: Any race in 2011 when he finished 8th or above
    Buemi: No idea, probably a race in 2011
    Liuzzi: His highest finish at Force India, wherever it may have been

    Although it was debated at the time, I thought Hamilton racing Raikkonen in Belgium 2008 was one of the best things I’d ever seen, ever. I thought the penalty against him was wrong (although I understand the arguments from both sides) but despite that, I thought it was incredible to see them race each other, wheel-to-wheel in damp conditions, to the point where the defending WDC loses it!

    Sure, maybe not his ‘best’ drive, and heck, he had the win taken from him, but that was one of those rare “wow” moments.
