There are many...

Ayrton Senna in '93 at Donington or Brazil '91 or Michael Schumacher in '96 at Spain or Monza '98.

The answer is Monaco 1970. Jochen Rindt comes from nowhere to win in a nearly 3 year old car, setting fastest lap on the final lap of the race, almost 3 seconds faster than his qualifying speed.

I don't know why, but Brazil 2008 springs to my mind.

Title pressure on Massa, changeable conditions, didn't put a foot wrong throughout the weekend and was dominant (not that dominant mind you).

Of course it's not the best, but I found it to be very impressive.

Also, Schumacher in Hungary 1998 against the faster McLaren's, was helped a little, but how he and Ferrari made that 3 stopper work I just don't know.

Driving from the back without drs or kers, winning on the last lap.

Schumacher 1996 without all gizmos Senna had in Donington 1993 for me the best wet race win ever. Senna had far more spectacular races like brazil 1991 can't underdestand the fuss about Donington by knowing other drivers didn't have a traction control like Senna. Senna himself said he had better/harder races.

"People later said that my win at the wet in Donington in '93 was my greatest performance - no way! I had traction control! It was a good win, sure, but, compared with Estoril '85, it was nothing, really."

Suzuka 2000. That whole weekend was just epic and both Schumacher and Hakkinen pushed each other to the absolute possible limit.

Qualifying:


Race:
Schumacher pole, Hakkinenn second. Hakkinen takes lead and REALLY slowly pulls away. Stops. Schumacher slightly closes in. Suddenly: drops of rain. Then: traffic. Then: stops. Then: Schumacher leads and Hakkinen comes up strong but gets there just too late. Teeth in the table and nails in the carpet. What a RACE.

From the ones I can recall because of seeing it on TV

1981 Jarama (Villeneuve)
1985 Portugal (Senna)
1996 Barcelona (Schumacher)

There are other victories which impressed me very much but often that was after reading the circumstances during the race and/or being pointed out something that I missed during watching the actual race. But the three above are the ones of which I knew during the race that something extraordinary was happening.

And I am too young to have seen Nurnburgring 1968, let alone Nurnburgring 1935

tell me more about the best races of Schumacher won in the best car, meanly you here 98 or 96 as answers, where Schumacher didn't have the best car. Cheap attempt to attack his answer. I don't agree on him. Kimi's win was fantastic. But you don't need a low attack on basis of his favorite driver :rolleyes:

...would´ve been my response to the Jarama 81 posts.

May have been not so spectacular, but to win in Monaco with an early 80s turbo...good lord.
Ok he inherited P1 after Jones got in trouble but still...

If you had taken the time to watch the race u would have understood the '?' mark. :rolleyes:

Let me enlighten you--FM won the race only because of a penalty handed to LH for an overtake on KR that the FIA deemed worthy. It was the battle for the lead between LH vs KR that made it impressive. BUT HEY LAUGH ON IF IT MAKES YOU HAPPY. :cool:

The pass he made on the inside of Alan Jones in front of the pits during the race was unreal. I think there was almost no room left between him and the wall.

Who needs DRS? Guys just needed the balls Gilles had. :love:

I know :up: I appreciated the humour, I was laughing with you.

Kimi and Lewis were superb in that race and Felipe was like a ghost.
