Next race is the 2000 Italian Grand Prix. It is known for a couple of reasons. First, a fire Marshall died (first F1 casualty after Senna) due to a first lap collision. Second, Schumi equaled Senna's record of 41 victories. But what this race is mostly remembered for is when Schumi cried during the post race press conference(after winning the race), when asked a question about equaling Senna's record.

Worth a watch i must say.

Cheers.

yes. Remember the Press Conference very well. Also, a great race for us tifosis where the Ferrari/MS got it together and went on to win the first of 5 years of titles.

The stewards were booted out because the stop-go penalty on Schumi was a wrong decision. It wasn't for schumi finishing in the pit lane. That was within the rule books.

Absolute genius from Jean Todd, to finish in pit lane and to avoid controversy Schumi was also briefed what to say in the press. Schumi said his radio broke and he didn't know about the penalty till the last lap

I think the stuff Schumacher said in the press conference didn't quite manage to blow off the controversy. Nonetheless, if its within the rules, there's nothing wrong with it so they needn't have worried about controversy.

OT: F1 classics is turning into Schumacher Classics. Wish they'd show some of Hakkinen's great moments, especially since he won two championships during that time.

Yeah, I noticed that too yesterday while loving every minute of it

2000 Belgian GP and 2001 Indy come to mind immediately. Also a few races in the Maclaren-Ford where he drove the wheels off it. I have a great pic somewhere with the Hakk literally becoming the flying finn at the Australian GP

I also hope they show 2000 Spa. Great race. Maybe its a phase by phase thing. First, Schumacher, then another driver and so on. In which case I do want to see Senna and Prost's great battles.

I am surprised, they are just sticking to the very recent past races. We need the real classics from 80s and 90s.

Thanks Musicvj!

I was thinking about the schedule while watching todays classic race and thought i'll check the thread first before finding it out.

BTW, has the '98 Hungarian been shown yet? I havent seen it and it seems funny to show the '99 Canadian before that one.

Got goosebumps watching Senna yesterday.

There was a clash today between ESPN and STAR Sports, with the 2000 Belgian on ESPN and 2009 Turkish GP on STAR.

Of course, I preferred Schumi/Mika over Vettel/Button...

I have always found Mika's habit of calling MS 'the Michael' very funny! Mika said it twice in the 2000 Spa post race interview.

Yeah I love that. Besides, when it comes to press conferences, few entertain as well as Mika Hakkinen. And I'm glad Star Sports are finally showing some of his great drives too rather than Schumacher all the time.

Just watched the 1998 British GP.

I still dont understand how Schumacher won the race in the pitlane. If he got a stop and go penalty, it means that he has to complete it before he crosses the finish line. But he crossed the finish line before he came to a halt. So technically he finished the race without serving his penalty.

His win by +22.4 secs clearly shows this. Im surprised how this was allowed. F1 rules can be really wierd sometimes.
