Does anyone know when team radio was first introduced? I’d guess sometime in the mid 80s.
Goddamit Vergne. 27 was reserved for a Ferrari!
Raikkonen – 2003
Alonso – 2012
Button – 2009
Hamilton – 2012
Vettel – 2013
The 2004 Hungarian Grand Prix usually wins this one. Literally nothing happened.
I wonder what makes Kimi so damn good at Spa. It must be that his driving style is just perfectly suited to the characteristics of the circuit.
How I wish we could go back to the days in the early 90′s where teams could choose to run either a V8, a V10 or a V12. I know the world has changed and the emphasis is on smaller, more “relevant” technical innovations but the way in which the sport is moving these days leaves me completely cold. In my opinion turbo engines sound completely soulless compared to a screaming naturally aspirated engine but there we go.
Spa 1992: a really tactical race. It started to rain on about lap 4 causing all the front runners to pit for wets, all except Senna who stayed out on slicks. It turned out to be the wrong decision, and Schumacher ended up taking his first win.
Suzuka 2005: absolutely awesome watching Alonso and Kimi come through the field. Kimi’s move on Fisi on the last lap was the perfect Hollywood ending.
Mexico 1990: Alain Prost’s greatest race. He climbed up from 13th on the grid to win. The main reason I picked this one though is because of that stupefying move from Mansell at Berger’s expense through the Peraltada. The phrase “balls of steel” doesn’t quite do it justice!
Adelaide 1986: the most dramatic title decider of all time surely. Famous for Mansell’s spectacular tyre failure. Prost stealthily went on to claim his second consecutive world title. A tragic moment for Mansell fans!
Canada 2011: one of the greatest drives of all time by none other than Jenson Button. Watching him go from dead last to passing Vettel on the second to last lap had me jumping for joy.
Nurburgring 2007: absolutely mental race! I was shocked to watch so many cars slide off in the rain at turn 1. Amazing drive by Alonso, overtaking the struggling Massa in the last few laps to take a fantastic victory. Also famous for the fact that debutante Markus Winkelhock actually led the race for roughly a lap at the restart!
