"Almost as close as you were in Suzuka."
• La ultima carrera de la temporada 97 en Jerez, España. Schumacher, Villeneuve y Frentzen hicieron el mismo tiempo en calificación. Schumacher lideraba, pero cuando Villeneuve intentó pasarlo, Schumacher lo estrelló, como hizo con Hill en 1994. Pero esta vez la jugada no le funcionó al alemán. Villeneuve terminó tercero y se llevó su único campeonato del mundo. Ese día Mika Hakkinen obtuvo su primera victoria en la F1.
• The last race of the 1997 season Jerez, Spain. Schumacher, Villeneuve and Frentzen made the same time in qualy. Schumacher was leading, but when Villeneuve tried to overtake him he tried to crash the canadian, just like he did against Hill back in 94. But this time it didn't work out for the German. Villeneuve ended up third, and claimed his one and only world title. That day Mika Hakkinen obtained his maiden victory.
A clip shown on ITV prior to the Interlagos 2007 race with historical title deciders. Amazingly, since then, we have had two title deciders (2007 & 2008) which should also belong in this video.
In this video you will find
- Mansell losing out in 1986 in the final round (Adelaide) while he had things seemingly under control 3 races before the end of the season. Alain Prost came in as world champion. His second consecutive.
- Senna trying to make up for a troubled (mainly mechanical) 1989 season and thus keeping his championship hopes alive. He goes for the move inside of Alain Prost at the chicane in Suzuka, but they meet. Senna managed to race on, but was disqualified in the end for getting a push start and using the escape round. Alain Prost was champion that year. A lot of criticism followed.
- Senna deliberately takes Alain Prost off the following year at the same track (Suzuka, 1990) as a vengance action for the previous year. After complaining the day before that the pole position was on the wrong side of the track, he lost out to Alain Prost starting second, who immediately passed him for the lead. Senna was having none of it, pushed Alain Prost off, and became world champion of 1990.
- Michael Schumacher wins his first F1 championship in 1994 after a very controversial incident with title contender Damon hill. The two touched after Schumacher went of the track and hit the concrete barrier side-on. It's hard for me to explain what exactly happened. Had Damon knew about it (Schumacher hitting the wall), I'm sure he would have backed off as Schumacher was probably due to retire with a damaged car. However, I'd have to admit 1994 was dominated by Schumacher and only sheer 'luck' made Damon Hill come close (although he of course showed off some great racing like Suzuka in that year)
- Jerez 1997 saw a desperate move by Michael Schumacher for him to stop Villeneuve becoming world champion. He drove in to the side of him to damage the Williams and with the goal of it to retire (since Michel, at that point was ahead in the drivers standings). However, Schumacher got stuck in the gravel, retired and was later disqualified from the F1 world championship of 1997. A slightly damaged Villeneuve managed to race on and let the 2 McLarens pass by (with Hakkinen winning). He finished third and that was enough for him to take the (his only) world championship that year.
- Suzuka 1998 saw a well deserved F1 world championship for Mika Hakkinen. Schumacher, title contender, had to retire with a puncture which was a result of an accident of two other cars at the chicane.
