Also from the 2005 Grand Prix, this incredible pass from Nando round the outside of Schumi into 130R.
3. Robert Kubica
After that crash at Montreal in 2007, he came back a year later and won the Candian Grand Prix. He seethed talent beyond the BMW Sauber’s modest frame. Hampered by being a tall lad while the designers designed the car around the short lad Heidfeld (a similar complaint Webber voiced in 2005), Kubica constantly competed in lesser material. When BMW when south in 2009, going the wrong way in car design, Robert still managed to get a podium in Brazil before joining an up-start Renault in 2010. He was their golden boy, he pulled out podiums when it should’ve been impossible, he seethed the talent that had people booking him as a future World Champ. Imagine if he had ended up with McLaren or Ferrari instead? He could’ve won the World Championship that year… But it was rumoured Renault were the only one okay with him going rallying, and even then they weren’t 100% okay with it.
Much like Bellof’s career ending at Sportscars, Robert nearly lost his hand while rallying in the offseason. A short recovery turned into a long recovery, his F1 career considered over.
Some accurate but also some interesting (see bottom right) things pop up when you search “(year) f1 car” into google image search.
Mark would end this race in the wall, Kimi would win only to have to give his trophy back later, and Fernando scored his second ever podium but didn’t get to stand on it after hitting an errant tyre from Mark’s crash.
