Trying to decide where to go this year, I was thinking about Grands Prix I have attended since I started following F1 and realised that I have never seen the same driver win more than once. And curiously, despite attending races during their dominant eras, I have never seen Schumacher nor Vettel win a race!

 

So here's my list of 7 drivers I have watched win at a live F1 event (without saying where):

 

Mika Hakkinen

Eddie Irvine

Giancarlo Fisichella  :up: 

Fernando Alonso

Jenson Button

Mark Webber

Lewis Hamilton

 

So, what's your list?

 

Edit: Don't just list all the grands prix you have been to, let people try and guess! e.g. Given Irvine + Fisichella above should be pretty easy to guess where I saw them...

Lewis Hamilton, Hungary, '07. And since they open the gates (or used to open the gates) for the crowd there after the flag, I was next to the pit wall for the podium.

Schumacher x2 (France 2002, 2004)

Alonso x1 (Spain 2013)

 

I saw Schumacher win twice in Magny-Cours: 2002 and 2004. In 2002 he claimed the title there and although it was good to witness, I was also disappointed that Räikkönen missed his first win after sliding on oil from McNish's Toyota. In 2004 the most striking memory was not him winning the race, but Barrichello passing Trulli in the last corner! And also sneaking into the pitlane for F3 and seeing rising stars LH and NR in their cars (Lewis was not very good then - Jamie Green was really impressive).

Last year I attended the Spanish Grand Prix and saw Alonso win in front of his home crowd. He really made an incredible start - makes me think it's already been one year since Ferrari won a race.

they still do, I've seen Button, and Hamilton twice from the starting grid in the last 3 years. when Webber won it was my first time, and didn't know anything about running in. :D

Watched MS win in a hail storm to very nearly clinch a record-breaking title if it weren't for a certain driver finishing second.

Also saw LH take his first back-to-back win and Vettel score his first points.

Would like to see Vettel win a GP live, but it's part financial impossibility and part lack of interest/return on investment at this point.

On the day itself I watched Lewis Hamilton take the win at Spa '08. But obviously it went down as a Massa win.

 

Others;

 

Vettel Spa 11

Webber Silverstone 12

Hi Scheivlak (I think I know where you are from).

 

I thought I had seen Prost win at Zandvoort in 1983... went to my fathers house in Zandvoort (where he lived) together with my brother a couple of laps earlier, to beat the crowd (we were at... Scheivlak), and my father said: 'A fine mess Prost made of it.'

 

We said: 'Eh? He won the race.'

 

'No, he didn't.'

 

And then we say on tv, that night, Prost make the gaff of his life on track. (Although later, it turned out he had made a even bigger mistake, with a woman that happened to married to his teamboss...and then the teamboss walked in on them.)

Not such a bad mistake - it put him in a McLaren.

To answer the question, just 2 winners in 3 races:
Ayrton Senna x 2
Nigel Mansell

That's it sadly, will be getting some more races in in the coming years though.

Well I'm just very lucky, my dad loves F1, my Birthday falls in the first week of July and I grew up 6 miles from Brands. I got a lot of great racing as a present every other year when I was young (with a slightly longer trip every other year)


Highlights hmmm Lauda 84 because he will always be a hero.
Hamilton 08 because I was there with my sons

I just realised I left Nelson and Niki off my list!!!! Typing fast, being over 40 and sipping an Adnams bad combination!
