hamilton's first start in 2007 jumps to mind.. overtaken by kubica initially so goes to the outside and takes him and alonso round the outside into a gap just big enough for an F1 car..

brundle's crash was pretty spectacular..

early morning butterflies..

One of my fondest memories has to be Kimi's win in 2007, that being his first race for Ferrari.

2004

First practice

After Ferrari's dominant 2002, they had been caught in 2003 and everyone expected them to be surpassed in 2004. On his first run, Schumacher destroys the fastest lap by a second. At that very moment, you just knew he was going to walk all over the season

As a Ferrari fan at the time, that was so exciting :)

1996 - Villeneuve almost beating Hill.
1997 - Villeneuve being taken out at the first corner, Frentzen's brake failure (and Brundle's first ever commentary).
1999 - Irvine's first win. Never thought it would happen!
2002 - Epic race. Montoya vs Schumi, Trulli spinning off in the lead, it had it all.
2003 - Even more epic race. Schumi's car falling to pieces, damp conditions, DC's win.
2007 - Lewis Hamilton makes his entrance. The rest is history.
2009 - Brawn blow everyone away. Vettel and Kubica's bumper cars.
2010 - Jenson's first win for McLaren. Another wet/dry race.

I love Melbourne!

1997 was a great race.
2003 was also really good.
2005 was my favourite as a big Fisi fan.
2006 was very exciting from what I recall.
2010 was full of events.

Schumacher on row 2 last year. I've seen him win a few at Oz from not such winning situations, but it was still that feeling that he could do it back in the day. Last year, was a pleasant surprise.

I think for me maybe JB in 2009. Just because he was pretty much a goner fromt he sport, and Brawn (despite money Honda gave them, the huge developmental budget and massive layoffs) were still kinda underdogs. Sure they were insanely fast in the tests but seeing them actually go out and qualify well with some fuel on board then go on and get the 1-2 (admittedly, it was slightly lucky when Vettel and Kubica came together - I think it was them).

Lewis' start in 2007 was also spectacular. for those that didn't follow him in Gp2 and before, he was an unknown and in his first F1 race. He drove that day like a guy with 100 races under his belt.

The ones where it was on at a decent enough time to stay up all night for were the best.

Probably 1997 where ITV threw the whole channel at it for a night

1999 - All the regular big hitters had an awful day and Irvine, Frentzen & Ralf took the top 3. They each went on to have brilliant seasons.
2002 - The huge startline crash that everybody walked away from. I remember being in shock when Ralf took to the skies. And Webber holding off Salo.
2003 - Ferrari finally had a bad day. Gave great hope for the season ahead.
2009 - The entire Brawn situation. Although Richard Branson nearly made me sick.
2010 - Jenson proved 2009 was no fluke.

I think 1999 & 2010 are my favourites.
