    Default Three most memorable moments of Formula1 racing...

    Was talking to a friend over the weekend of our most memorable moments of F1 racing. Thought of coming up with this thread. Thanks to YouTube, I was able to relive all those moments once again.

    For me, these are the three memories which I will never forget in my life. There are lots more that involve Schumi's victories, but these will stay with me forever - because I literally cried when I watched #2 and #3 and #1 left me speechless.

    Feel free to list yours.

    1. Mika overtakes Schumi in what is considered the 'move' of the century.
    Spa 2000

    2. Schumi tries to take out Villeneuve
    Jerez 1997

    3. Schumi crashes into Coulthard when leading the race by more than 2 minutes !!!
    Spa 1998

    Check out how a Ferrari F1 car can be driven on 3 wheels !!!
    And Schumi's wrath too !!!

    May 2001. Can't remember the exact race, but schumi was winning like crazy all season cos the Mercedes engine was super unreliable. However, Mclaren got their act together and Mika was leading schumi by half the course! Just when victory was in sight, with one final bend to go, the Mercedes engine started spewing black smoke. The car started slowing down and schumi can only stare in disbelief at his luck as he overtakes for the win.

    oh yeah. I remember that one. Really a heart-breaking moment for Mika. He was a super driver and was a good match for Schumi. I really enjoyed their duels and his sense of humor was TOP CLASS

    My pleasure.

    I am amazed at the number of video clippings on youtube.
    I wonder if we can get DVDs of these memorable races. Would surely be fun to see Schumi trying to take out Damon Hill in the 1994 Australian GP and get shunted out in the process. And then watch the race from the sidelines and win the Championship as Hill's car suffers irreparable damage.

    I think that we should share the ups and downs of F1. Like what M. Schumacher said, we must learn something out of the incident. (or something to that effect... )

    Safety in Formula1 has definitely come a long way since Ayrton Senna's crash.

    When I saw Schumi crash in 1999 at Silverstone, I thought he had died. Such a big huge impact and its a miracle he survived with a broken leg. Its a dangerous sport, but FIA really has done a lot in the past few years to make it a bit safer.

    Schumi straightlines into the tyre barrier at Silverstone 1999...

    Thanks for the link, schon. It was a really sad clip to watch. I really salute David Purly for giving his all to help Roger Williamson. Wonder why the other drivers did not stop to assist help when D. Purely could do it.
