    i do actually wonder...Say there wasnt a red flag or a safety car and the race just continued (yes i know it would of been insane but just think) if he had a 30+ second gap do you think Markus could of won...I mean without the engine issue to but that was after a huge delay MAYBE it would of held on.

    1994 was an interesting race... and despite being a Schumi fan I’ve always thought that was a dodgy move by him.

    Look at the rear of that 1991 Jordan at 4:10 ! Beautiful! I want F1 to have less control over how the cars look. They are becoming more and more copies of each other, and that's just sad. There's very little room for innovation when everything is so heavily regulated. I want a racing series in which the only limitations are weight and external dimensions (height, length, width). Everything else is up for the teams to decide. Put a budget cap on the teams because otherwise the team with the highest budget would win pretty much always. Now that would be interesting. What is not interesting is watching a bunch of nearly identical cars saving fuel and tires for 95% of the race. Which is exactly what F1 has become. If you watch an F1 race from the 90's, you'll notice how every driver is pushing at 100% all the time, taking their cars to the absolute limit in every single corner. That's exciting to watch. That required tremendous skill from the drivers.

    Mansell started 4 GPs in 1994, not 3 as mentioned in the video. He also took part in that year's French GP

    You have to feel for Nicola Larini. Not only did he take his only podium in the worst possible circumstances, I think he kinda knew that he was unlikely to get another chance. Talk about conflicting emotions.

    I think you forgot Verstappen, he replaced Kvyat at Spain 2016, an the rest, we already know it

    1:20 Nope, guys.. Berger didn't start for three races back then, because he had some serious problems with his jaw, some kinda inflammation (really don't know how to say or describe that in english). The tragic death of his father was a few weeks later, at the german grand prix. but there he raced and even won, his last f1-victory in his career btw.

    Alex Wurz in 2005 also, one race comeback where he got 3rd place. He's been the most strongest substitute by far.

      Tbf Benetton was in rapid decline and he didn't bring in the big bucks. But every Team principal loved his technical mind. But yeah he was definately more suited for LMP 1 endurance racing.

      @Mariano von Trani I think he was amazing as replacement driver but never lived up as a normal full time.
