First race seen live: Zandvoort 1979 or 1980, as a little boy, who can’t even remember who (or maybe better: what colour car) had won. Then flash forward to in chronological order:
Brazil 2003, red flagged because of the crash involving Alonso and Webber, that ended the race. That in itself isn’t that special, but all the spins in especially the soaked Senna-s and offcourse the fact that it took days to find out who had won (Fisichella, driving a Jordan), while initially Raikkönen was declared the winner, makes this race stand out in this world of computers and cameras. Brazil stands out when it comes to remarkable races.
Nürburgring 2007, seen live. Unforeseen rain right at about the moment when the race started, gave Markus Winkelhock, replacement-driver who qualified last, in his first and only F1-racestart, in a Spyker, a P1 at the openingstage of the race. I remember the confusion at the stands, because initially some, including me, thought that the Spyker already had been lapped… After a red flag (5 drivers spun off within a lap or two, most at turn one), it went back to dry and back to normal when the race resumed, until at the end another shower lightend things up again. (Alonso won from Massa, there was some anger by Alonso, because Massa “had hit him”)
Spain 2016. Max (and Kimi, it would have been different without him)
