I’m going with Mika Hakkinen (in my dreams) :D5th July 2013, 14:05 at 2:05 pm #238485
The 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix is an interesting one. Raikkonen led and crashed (something you may have overlooked), handing the lead to Alonso who then had a wheel nut problem (something you acknowledge).
In this case, Raikkonen retired from, or lost, the lead 7 times due to both mechanical and ‘non-mechanical non-driver’ issues (rather than 6).22nd July 2012, 16:44 at 4:44 pm #205681
Just about to book my tickets, there’s four of us going. Never been before, really looking forward to it. Is there any way to find out the entry list?15th June 2012, 23:15 at 11:15 pm #203519
I think when looking at Schumacher in 2012, you’ve really got to look at it in context. The equivalent would be Ayrton Senna racing in 2003.
When you look at it like that, it’s remarkable that Schumacher is still driving so well, and still has so much apparent motivation. I don’t want him to retire. If I wanted him to retire it would be circa Canada 2010, but even then I didn’t want him to retire because watching an F1 race with Schumacher in it makes it infinitely more exciting for me, whether he comes first or last.7th May 2012, 0:14 at 12:14 am #201260
There’s only a couple of races in the past few of years that deserve legendary status – Canada 2011 and Brazil 2008.
As for my own personal favourite race, Nurburgring 1999 has to be up there. It had everything. Frentzen led, went out. Coulthard led, went out. Fisichella led, went out. Ralf Schumacher led, got a puncture. The Ferrari pit crew couldn’t find a tyre for Irvine. Even poor old Luca Badoer retired just a few laps away from 4th place in a Minardi.
If you’re too young to have seen that race, get it watched! http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8205498.stm17th March 2012, 8:39 at 8:39 am #196016
I really enjoyed BBC coverage, but Sky’s has been excellent so far. A few downsides, Damon Hill being most of them. The guy was boring when they used him in 2002, you’d think that they’d learn!18th February 2012, 1:12 at 1:12 am #192510

Whaaaaaaat!? Driven is AMAZING!!! It’s so corny, I love it! The best part is where they randomly go racing through the streets! Hahaa what a film!2nd December 2011, 19:48 at 7:48 pm #186464
Best – The moment I realised it was Schumi ahead of Kobayashi/Massa in Canada
– Webber’s overtake on Alonso
– Seeing Schumacher v Hamilton at Monza
– The tension of the Monaco Grand Prix (before the red flag)
Worst – Schumacher having his podium finish taken away by DRS in Canada1st December 2011, 0:15 at 12:15 am #186414

@todfod I can’t believe you’ve put Hamilton ahead of Schumacher on your list. Am I missing something? How can you possibly begin to quantify that!?27th November 2011, 12:02 at 12:02 pm #175649
Above all else, it just seems petty. Okay, a few people have decided to defect. They’re still working for the BBC today though!
