I'm a Ferrari fan, though I am also a Mark fan, and there have been many great Ferrari wins over the years, but I shall choose this decade and and to remember Kimi by it. The 2007 British GP was my favourite Ferrari win of late, coz many thought Lewis was the second coming, and thought he'd clinch the victory with ease, and yet Ferrari won! It was a sweet victory indeed. What was your favourite team's win, any team. :)

Ah MS at China 2006 was even more sweet when it looked like a Renault milk run!

Hungary 98. Schumacher and Brawn was FANTASTIC. 20 quali laps in the race, to pass both Mclaren and he won the race.

Monza 98, two laps AWESOME with Coulthard who blow his engine and then, Schumacher pass Hakkinen.

Schumacher in 1996 - 1999 was at his best.

Spa 2000.
It was a great race and at that point I was 80+% sure that McLaren had the upper hand.

I've never really been attached to any teams. When I was a kid I cheered for the team with the best livery, and the driver with the coolest name :D.

Now that I've grown up (or gotten older, anyway) I only really cheer on drivers that I like the way they drive. My favorite team moments in recent years would be for Super Aguri when Sato mugged Alonso, for Force India when Fisichella stole the pole at Spa, but for wins, it has to be Kubica in Canada, when Heidfeld came second. I loved that BMW :love:.

I'm a Ferrari fan and a Kimi fan

The 2000 WDC - that 6 second pitsop by Schumacher "splash and dash" at Suzuka, world drivers championship result.

Again Suzuka - 2005 Kimi starts in 17th and goes on to win. One of the most inspirational drives ever!!!

And we cannot forget the grand master..
Senna, Donnignton, Rain 1993 !!

Arrows, Hungaroring, 1997. It was so close to being a huge upset that, I'm sure, would've been universally liked and appreciated.

Donington 93 and Suzuka 2005 spring to mind. But considering the circumstances a very special win I'll always remember was Gerhard Berger's 1997 Hockenheim victory. I think everyone back then was happy to see him grab his final trophy.

(oh btw, Benetton was not my favourite team at any time. So maybe I'm a bit off topic there. When I was Ferrari fan I found every win special, because there were not many when Alboreto, Berger, Mansell, Prost and Alesi drove for them :p)

Not a typical fanboy, but it's difficult not to support outsiders that grab that rare opportunity in a special way.

Beltoise's 1972 Monaco win and Vettel's win at Monza in 2008 stand out.
And of course John Watson's win in the Penske at the Oestereichring in 1976. A great, great race.

And I have to admit having a soft spot for Ferrari for quite a long time and the 1970 Oesterreichring 1-2 after a serious drought, and the fantastic 1990 Mexican GP deserve to be mentioned as well.

Absolutely. :up: One that I liked was Panis winning Monaco in the Ligier.

But my favorite one of all, even though it happened loooooooooooong before I was born  ;) , was Gurney driving his Eagle to victory at Spa in 1967.

Funny, it was the first one I thought about but I didn't mention it because I only read about it in the paper the next day which was different from JPB's win in Monaco which was broadcasted live entirely -not very common those days. So the memory of Beltoise pulling farther and farther away in that BRM in the miserable pouring rain from giants like Stewart, Ickx and Fittipaldi made me choose that race as an example.

Another favourite of mine was Bruce McLaren's win in Spa in 1968, it was a first "real GP" win for his team, a first for a pioneering driver/constructor just like Dan's win the year before, and he was -from what I knew- such a nice guy, almost too nice to be a real winner.

Italy 2008 - you can say all you want about it being a team loaned a top engine by Ferrari and top driver and car by Red Bull, but there was that great feeling that the team that was once Minardi, that there was people there who had spent 10-20 years never getting higher than midgrid got a pole, got a win and whilst the conditions played a part, they did go out and dominate the weekend.

Brazil 2003- I was a Jordan fan before switching loyalties around 2004/05 as the team was sold up, but whilst this was Jordan's 4th win, I think what helped it was that Fisi won. It's more a driver thing I guess, but seeing my favourite team win with a driver who you felt was deserving a win left that warm feeling.

Brazil 2010 - ???

Belgium 2008 (up until the result change)-those last few laps were epic.
Brazil 2008 - needn't say more about that...
Turkey 2010- Best outcome after that clash...
Hopefully Brazil 2010...

1990 Portuguese GP - Mansell/Ferrari

Dont forget the 1990 Mexican GP with Prost/Ferrari winning it in great fashion with that fantastic duel with Mansell on Berger in the last few laps to make it a Ferrari 1-2.

Suzuka 97? Strange choice. I recall the event as the epitome of cheating. Thankfully, karma would sort that one out shortly thereafter, Norberto Fontana notwithstanding. :smoking:

I still find the 1988 Monza GP BIZZARE!

All 1988 Ferrari was nowhere near the McLaren's of Senna and Prost and it was believed they may win every race.

But, and the spooky part, Enzo Ferrari passes away and one month later Ferrari come first and second at the Italian GP!!

Seriously spooky.....

2003 Brazilian drama won by Fisi and his Jordan on flames at the pits - it was one hell of a race!!!

http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

of course there are too many memorable races such as Japan 2005 won by Kimi and McLaren from back of the grid, surprising victory for Williams in 2004 again in Brazil, Schumi at Hungaroring 1998 and many more... but still 2003 Interlagos drama was most memorable of them all for me.

That race still gives me nightmares.
Ruben's drove very well in the dry and exceptionally well in the wet but before the bizarre safety car the two McLarens were 40+ seconds clear and it would have been an easy 1-2.

Schumacher being the victim of a 'chop' and then having to blame Fisi was fun though.

Absolutely. 1998 was the best year of Schumacher, he was on top, Coulthard at Spa took him the title..

Well, I was thinking about Argentina actually. Spa really wasn't "ramming", it was DC lifting and Schumacher not seeing where he was going.

Q: what would've happened if Schumacher had punched you?
DC: well, his first punch would've broken his hand as I still had my crash helmet on, and then I would've used the heed and given him a Glasgow kiss!

Given the size of DC jaw, he wouldn't even need the helmet :)
