The Malaysian Grand Prix is coming up this weekend, and for the first time they’ve posted a full race, which was a pretty hectic one from 2001:

I never saw Schumacher race in his prime, but it’s unbelievable to see a driver lose well over a minute due to a pitstop issue and come back to win the race, with the lead being stretched to more than 60 seconds before MSC (I just remembered Ralf was still in F1 at the time) took his final pitstop.


Still, even 16 years ago the battle for the lead really wasn’t all that interesting - it was for a little bit due to the unique circumstances of the race but once MSC got in front there was no chance in hell of stopping him. However, the battles down the field were excellent, similar to today’s racing.
