Didn't Mansell set a fastest time at a session (not sure if practice, Q or what) in a lap where he did a 360 spin in Monaco?

Hang on, thought this was the greatest save since Banks on Pele.

I remember another amazing two-wheeled save by Peter Oettl but I can't find it on youtube.

Well, the other kind of 'bodywork' :rotfl:

God, i can't find any vids. I'm searching for the Button spin in Korea 2010 and i think Montoyas save in 06 Melbourne (not sure though). Youtube is just completely flooded by the vids for codemasters game :mad:

You should try minus (-) parameter in youtube to get rid of unwanted search results.

For example trying to find Montoya in melbourne:
Montoya Melbourne -game -codemasters

That leaves off any results including game and codemasters in videos name at least.

Senna saves it where Alesi and Nannini bin it.

Well, they're nowhere near Mark 'Gordon Banks' Webber's 2003 Brazil save anyway  ;)

Keeping two (loaded) tyres on the dry line = smart. Senna = smart. Alesi and Nannini weren't that day.

I think you mean the 1990 Imola GP. Mansell in the Ferrari was alongside Berger (I think) but he put two wheels on the grass, did a full 360 and then kept going with little time lost. Cant find a video of it but it was damn impressive car control (and a lot of luck!)

Yes, I remember that one well. David Hobbs went nuts on ESPN!

This is one of the best I've ever seen: Mark Higgins on the Manx rally. The Sullivan and Randy Mamola ones were amazing.


Totally, this one sticks with me always. The whole thing afterwards is so funny too with Higgins coming to terms with how flat they could've been and his passenger just "yeah allright, this is kinda cool I guess" :lol:

Well technically, this is the first best save since Gordon Banks, as it happened 5 years before Hamilton's save at Turkey 2008. :p

His co-driver either has balls of steel or is on drugs

The one of Higgins losing it on the Isle of Man wasn't during the Manx Rally, they were demo laps of the TT circuit during race week. That was on the exit of Bray Hill, would have been extremly scary!

G Villeneuve in the wet at Montreal 1981, making the podium after driving with a broken front wing

Standing ovation.

This is a highlights clip from Kimi's brief but exciting foray into NASCAR in the US
