I’d watch both Raikkonen and Alonso’s individual races at Japan in 2005. I’d also watch some great races in recent times which I haven’t seen including Europe 2007, Australia 2006, Canada 2005 etc. as well as re-watching some great races. I’d also catch up on some races from the 20th century as I haven’t seen an awful lot of races from then.
I don’t see why we can’t have access to FOM’s archive, I’d happily pay a subcription to watch races from it. It sucks how we can’t re-watch great races without illegal downloads or relying on someone else to upload the race for you.
Oddly enough, much as I’d love to see Jackie Stewart at the Nurburgring, I sense that apart from being a fantastic drive, it might be quite boring considering his winning margin was measured in minutes!
The one I’m really wanting to see at the moment is the on-board from Hamilton-Massa at the weekend. No doubt it’ll appear in a race edit or the end-of-season review.
Actually an on-board from the Spa ’98 pile up would be fun to watch.
I’d love to see Jim Clark 1967 Monza to see him go from 16th to 1st and consistently setting fastest lap after fastest lap (only to finish 3rd).
I’d use it to explore some of the unknowns of F1 [i.e. did certain drivers brake test? Were certain drivers impeded on qualifying laps - like when Alonso supposedly impeded someone, possibly Massa, at Monza years ago?]
Alternatively i’d watch onboard Mansell at Monaco 1992, onboard Raikkonen at Japan 05 or onboard Panis at Monaco 1996
A couple of years ago someone uploaded a series of videos to youtube showing the entire 2007 Japanese Grand Prix in on-board footage. Cutting between Hamilton Alonso, Raikkonen, Vettel, Kovalainen and others. The Raikkonen onboards were especially good, I remember one pass where you going on the exit of turn 4 all you can see is a huge ball of spray in front, and suddenly a tiny red light appears to the right of screen then before you know it he’s alongside a Toyota into turn 5. Really incredible to see just how little visibility the drivers had that day.
