Nobody mentioned Heidfeld taking the med car door off yet? I sometimes think he gets unfair grief for that, we can't see what he could see, but it still looks amusingly inept.

And within a few races didn't Montoya have a run where he hit a jack in the pits, spun on an outlap and hit a drain cover in the race?

In Detroit (or Dallas), don't remember the year, there was a driver who spun and tried to recover by making a blind turn in wrong way. Was it De Cesaris? I remember Keke Rosberg saying "that's the most crazy thing I've ever seen". It was probably that year in which the season review was narrated by drivers themselves.

It was the 1995 Italian GP, but Coulthard got lucky that on lap 1 others spun at the part of the track where his spin had gathered gravel so the race was red-flagged and he got the pole position back for the restart.

Oh I agree, as I said above I thought he was a hero. The finger guns (or were they finger drumsticks?) were probably my favourite moment of 2005.

There are those however that would deem it to be in poor taste considering the circumstances, so I stuck it in this thread.

Karun Chandock managing to crash the Caterham in the Australia 2011 practice one. First race of the year. First driver out on track. First time he'd ever driven it.

He almost made it around the second corner :lol:

Have to feel sorry for the guy. That pretty much ended his career.

I don't see the problem with Monteiro celebrating his podium. Would anyone have begrudged him the position if all the Michelin cars had started the race but failed to finish for whatever reason? Mark Webber was lauded as a hero for his 5th place on his debut but really it occurred under similar circumstances, in that a large number of faster cars failed to finish the race. As far as I'm concerned the circumstances that led to them failing to finish the race are unimportant. The entire event was a massive fail on Michelin's part, but that's not Monteiro's fault.


Back on topic, I remember one year Michael Schumacher having a collision with one of the backmarkers (Christian Albers?) on the way to the grid in China, a good half hour before the race was due to start. Both had to start from the pit lane.

We can also add Virgin Racing designing their car with a fuel tank that was too small.

Williams leaving one of their cars (was Schumacher I think) up on its jacks on the starting grid in Belgium 2001

Ferrari only bringing out 3 tyres to fit to Irvine's car in a pit stop back in 1999 at the Nurburgring

Hamilton has so many it's embarrassing and I'm a massive fan

Not really a fail but don't think I've laughed as much as Giancarlo Fisichella calling his Renault "piece of f*cking sh*t" at Bahrain 2006!

Irvine's crash train from Monaco 1996. The Irish -already 1 lap down- was just recovering from a spin when be got overhauled by the Finnish Express. Hakkinen was rather pissed off at the time.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgYkOlrFWqw

Plus, brain fade for Alesi in the 1997 Melbourne grand -prix. He deliberately ignored several laps the team's call in pits until he ran out of fuel. I can remember even now Briatore, he was something like " we put our tallest man with the board and Alesi still didn't see him!!" or something.
Nice remarks from the commentary boys too.

But which had brain fade? Some blame DC, others blame Schumi. Collective brainfade, perhaps.


Slight brainfade from DC, but these things do happen in heavy wet. Or did, rather, these days they just get red-flagged, no fun at all.

Coulthard has some good ones though, like spinning at Monza (I don't recall that) or crashing in Adelaide pitlane.

Singapore '08.

Massa driving off with the fuel hose still attached. Funny in itself, but then seeing some overweight pitcrew members 'running' down the pitlane was the cherry on the cake.

Button has 'form' for parking in the wrong place, he did it at the end of the Monaco GP too, and had to run down the pitroad.

I'd give him the benefit of the doubt on that one, I'd be more inclined to blame the guys braking hard in front of him. Vettel crashing into Webber behind the safety car in Fuji was more of a fail in my book, though to be fair to Vettel the weather conditions were rather treacherous.

I cant remember what year or gp but it was raining and everyone was aqua planning off at the same turn and a collection of f1 cars formed in the gravel but i think in one of his fast thinking moments Hamilton kept the engine going and got them to crane him back on track. Not a gaff but in recent times one of those races that just made me laugh when i thought about it for weeks, the way the camera was locked on a beached car only for another to slide in and another and another and so on. Still makes me laugh to this day

So no one remembers Hamilton's being unable to see a red light in the pit lane and running into the back of Raikkonen in 2008, Canada?
Raikkonen pointed out to him later where the light was and what it means. :lol:

Hamilton did indeed keep the engine running and got let onto the track, but he still failed to score any points. After that race rules where clarified that if you needed any assistance from marshals to get your car back on the track you are out.

I may not understand the precise meaning of a "fail", but how can this be one? To my mind, a driver breaking down in a quiet corner of the Monza park isn't a fail. The decision to put this out on live TV is.

Sorry but it's a fail. Monteiro appears foolish celebrating and being so smug of his podium finish there. I guess he himself mistakenly believes it was a great achievement to be third in a six car race where the three teams were so disparate in terms of performance that he was only racing against his own teammate Karthikeyan who was never famous for his speed.

Perhaps he refers to the spin-off itself. But Hakkinen was driving in 1999, an era where the spin-off was a possibility even in the dry, as the cars had less grip and were generally less forgiving than today, and gravel traps still existed (IIRC he stalled anyway).

Not a driver fail, but otherwise probably one the biggest fails of recent times was Honda's last stint in F1. Spending years without success and then designing what would turn out to be the championship winning car and selling their team to Brawn who would reap the rewards. Talk about bad timing!
