That was too of my list F1Brits_90 - look how close they could follow another car back then.

But of the ones I have seen Nigel Mansell passing Piquet at Silverstone on the last lap in 1987 is in my mind unbeatable.
To that end, I have to put this legendary battle between Giles in the Ferrari and Rene in the Renault at the 1979 French GP. Every time I watch it it takes my breath away. Remember this battle was only for 2nd and that after the race both drivers jumped out of their cars, ran over and hugged each other exclaiming how brilliant the fight was.
A different era.
Jarama 1981, the whole race
Montreal 1981, HIM driving in the wet with his front spoiler preventing any view in front of his car
Monaco 1981, the whole race
Imola 1982, the whole race up to the last lap
Hungary 1986, Piquet passing Senna on the outside of Tarzan
I haven't seen but heard a lot of:
Tazio Nuvolari at the 1948 Mille Miglia
Tazio Nuvolari at the German GP in 1935
Rindt at Monaco in 1970
A lot of races there from the early 1980s. It does reinforce my bias that while that period was not a golden age....there was a lot of great and competitive racing then, with seven teams that could win races.
just question would it be insensitive to have "memorable crashes or retirements. i was thinking zonta spa, mansell Adelaide
For me that has to be in with a shout.
There aren't many F1 races that pull everyone in.
Suzuka 1989 - that moment
Montreal 1990 - Alesi ending up on top of Nannini's car
Interlagos 2008 was one of the most pulsating moments from Hamilton throwing it 3 laps from the end to suddenly clinching it from disbelieving he had thrown it away again to clinching it and the disbelief on Massa's face as well at the time
Spa 1998 was great because it was Jordan's first win and Damon proved he still had it. Schumacher was running away and he came up behind DC and I was hoping they had a coming together so Damon could win. To my amazement Schumacher did run into the back of DC which allowed Jordan to score a 1-2.
I will always enjoy what Brawn achieved in 2009 with Button winning the title
