    I have to add another Murray moment. When he was talking to NIgel Mansell about the huge lump/bruise on his head and managed to poke him right in it. That still makes me smile even to this day.

    Jean Alesi in the Tyrell overtaking both Ferrari's down the back straight at Monza on lap one only for the race to be stopped. Then doing the exact same thing on the re-start!

    I've not seen any between 1950 and 1983.

    But of the ones I have seen Nigel Mansell passing Piquet at Silverstone on the last lap in 1987 is in my mind unbeatable.

    As most of us are quite young we are obviously sticking up ideas from the last 25 years. To that end we are missing some truly magically moments that we may not have seen live at the time but definitely deserve a mention.

    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:

    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.

    it was interesting. i remember Murray walker discussing difference between older era & modern day & he said that racing wasnt much better but edited highlights & rose tinted glasses make it seem better. but it had its fair share of dull races

    just question would it be insensitive to have "memorable crashes or retirements. i was thinking zonta spa, mansell Adelaide

    For pure excitement and drama Baku 2017 is up there, red flags, safety cars, stop go penalties, eventual race winner qaulified 10th and back in 17th after a handful of laps, 2nd place on the podium a lap behind early on and only claiming the spot metres from the finish line. Overtaking move of the year with Ricciardo passing 3 cars in the one move under brakes, it had it all.

    Button's comeback in Canada is still the only race where the whole family were on their feet shouting at the telly; whether they liked F1 or not.

    For me that has to be in with a shout.
    There aren't many F1 races that pull everyone in.

    Mine has already been posted, Villeneuve and Arnoux at Dijon in '79. The end of Monaco '82 comes close.

    I've got to admit I've never been so glad to anyone spin like Vettel did on the last lap of Montreal 2011 when Button hunted him down. It was an amazing race that day because I remember watching at 7pm as normal when they started behind the safety car and then Hamilton got tapped trying to pass I think it was Webber . He subsequently clashed with Button so he was out of the race . Then Button put Alonso into the wall and punctured his tyre and was last. They had the race stopped. When I turned back on the TV I could not believe the race was still on and Button was somehow charging through the field. When he got past both Webber and Schumacher with skill and I thought surely not. Then Vettel spun and I just screamed in delight. It was the longest covered race I think nearly 4 hours
    ----------------------------

    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
