For me definitely Webber’s. I also really enjoyed seeing Kubica win. And if Heidfeld can pull off a win soon, that’d be pretty amazing. And of course Hamilton’s first win was pretty dang good for a rookie, plenty of safety cars to contend with so I enjoyed that one too.
Felipe Massa. I didn’t watch the race (Turkey 2006), but his first pole and his first win all together on a circuit where his dominance would have been unchallenged for three years. I think though that Brazil 2006 was perhaps better as he was the first Brazilian to win at home since Ayrton Senna, and he did so with pole position and a special suit with Brazil’s colours, as if he knew that was going to be his weekend. Ah, those were the times of an aggressive Massa (on track).
Then there is Barrichello in Europe 2009, I was enthusiastic of him winning after so many years and having a tribute to Massa on his helmet. But wait, this topic is about favourite driver, not race!
since i only really started to watch and follow F1 in 2007, before that it was a very casual affair. Hamiltons first win in Canada 07 and his win at Australia in 08, had me thinking, “good start to the year lol”
Kubica gets a mention, i just wish Rosberg would break his duck.
