Well I saw my first classic yesterday. Its rather disappointing that they cut out large parts of the race. I wish they made it a two hour programme with the full race. Be more interesting to me that way. Any extra time can be used to explain the season's happening better. Given the cut short format, Slater and Yoong did a decent job. But overall, I wish it was better than what it is.

I don't know why MS was penalized at the end of the 1995 race at Spa. To me his defence against Hill seemed fair especially since I could see no instance of weaving-one-way-then-the-other by Michael. Comments?

Edit: Just had a funny thought: if they showed the 2001 races, would Yoong be able to pretend that the Alex Yoong driving on screen is from an alternate universe? Or had Slater and Goodwin already started to commmentate in 2001?

I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was glued to my seat till it ended.

A chaotic start and massive first corner pileup triggered by DC (I think).

I remember Irvine looking **it scared in his helmet before the restart. Never seen a racer look round-eyed scared to go racing.

The regenmeister showing the best how its done.

and then Michael KO'd by DC. (DC owned up to that mistake sometime in '05, '06).

A classic race due to the elements, but a classic one nonetheless.

This will be a good one to relive.

I am looking forward to 9PM. Sounds Interesting.

Hmm I don't know why, but every race I tune into has Michael Schumacher in the spotlight. Not necessarily winning, but always heavily involved in that race. I haven't been watching too regularly so perhaps its just coincidence.

I think thats more to do with the fact that they are showing races post 1994 which is when Schumi dominated the sport.

Thats because during most of his 15 years in F1 since 1992, he was the guy to beat.

If he wasn't winning, more often than not he was right behind the winners and pushing hard.
If he was in the midfield you could bet on him to come through the grid and finish high. He simply dominated F1.

Anyway this is not a Schumi thread...

On another note, watching these classic races is a race in itself. Race through the day to complete work by 7, race through workout and finally race back home, to watch the race

'98 Belgian GP - Whoa! What a race to watch. Just saw it last night. The car(pun intended)nage that DC created on the first lap was mind blowing.

Seems he was the man responsible for almost everything that happened that day.

I am hooked to the F1 classics now.

I always wanted to watch that first lap carnage fully. The youtube videos are poor. Incidentally, was DC responsible or did someone hit him from behind, the first time?

Sometime later DC admitted that he had lost control all by himself and careened across the track at the first start.

Sometime in ('05, '06 maybe) DC got into a HUGE shunt at the Nurburgring trying to avoid hitting the car ahead who had lifted off the throttle - not braked mind you, just lifted off. And this was in broad daylight with the sun shining.

It was after this incident that he apologised for lifting off in Spa '98 being at the receiving end himself now.

I think this particular race in '98 went a long way in souring the MS-DC friendship.

Saw the infamous Silverstone 98 race tonight. Brawn/Todt/Schumi partnership in full swing and winning in the pit lane

I believe the stewards resigned after this race.
