Controversy is never far away in Formula 1. But over the years, which controversial moments stand out as the biggest? Edd Straw looks back at the arguments, broken rules and on track moments that have gone down in F1 folklore - some of which are still subject to debate today.

Honestly? This was a shitty and biased video... People in the comments already mentioned other, certainly bigger, controversies you should have mentioned, yet you kept focusing on the few ones involving Michael Schumacher. Well done, you lost one subscriber.

As a brazilian,the crashgate was the thing that made Piquet Jr. be and still very hated here on Brazil. Cause we coulndt believe that he accept to do such a thing,for help Alonso to win. A lot of brazilians still call him "traitor" for do something like this,and definetly destroyed Massa chance to get close to Hamilton in the championship,even about what happened before in the year (Spins,Engine Failure,Bad Pit-stop).That was something that a lot of brazilians will not forget so easily,for sure.

F1 can be so tone-deaf at times, and the Senna and Hunt instances are proof of this. In the Prost incident, Senna dropped back to about 8th and masterfully drove through the field only to have the win taken from him, and Hunt came back from what should have been catastrophic suspension damage to win. These are great performances that should be immortalized, instead, they get disregarded due to stuffy and obsolete rules and its total bullshit.

The Austria 2002 controversy could have been avoided. If Ferrari had been slow enough at Barrichello's pit stops, it would have not lead to all the booing that happened afterwards, many outsiders would have been none the wiser (a bit like Massa rejoining from his final stop in Brazil 2007 in traffic, which was just enough to allow Raikkonen to make his final stop and rejoin in the lead, thus securing the world championship for himself)

Who can forget Scheatmacher's disqualification from the qualifying session for the Monaco Grand Prix 2006 after the stewards ruled he deliberately stopped his Ferrari at the Rascasse corner ... after all, he remains the only driver in the history of the sport to have been disqualified from the Drivers’ Championship. Let's see, there is 1994 Australian Grand Prix, 1997 European Grand Prix, 1998 British Grand Prix, 2002 Austrian Grand Prix, and the above mentioned 2006 Monaco Grand Prix. ... you can make a TOP 10 of only Michael Schumacher controversies.

Wrong. Bridgestone is a division of Firestone. They had data that Michelin didn’t have, and could thus design tires that could handle this obstacle.

There was a pretty much forgotten controversy in Monza, 1960. Officially, it went down in history as the final victory for a front engine Grand Prix car, however, it was a far from glorious. The seeds of the controversy were sown by the season Ferrari were having up to then. While Cooper and Jack Brabham were well on the way to a second title after claiming both drivers and constructors titles in 1959, Ferrari were yet to win a race as the sport arrived in Italy for the Italian Grand Prix and the prospects for the Scuderia looked bleak as the teams began to arrive in Italy. Then, the organisers hit upon an idea to attempt to tip the balance in favour of Ferrari, use the full combination circuit, which featured the infamous banking. The organisers did this to try to tip the balance in favour of the one advantage Ferrari had in 1960, straight line speed. The rest of the field, lead by Cooper and the other British teams, were outraged at what they saw as blatant Italian Nationalism as the motivating factor in using the combination layout. Feeling that the banking was too dangerous, they issued an ultimatum to the organisers, reverse the layout change or they would pull out of the race weekend. No such reversal was forthcoming and the entry list was reduced to a mix of works and privately entered Ferraris. The driver who won the race, future world champion, Phil Hill, who in a tragic twist of fate would clinch the world championship a year later at that same location after his team mate, Count Wolfgang Von Tripps, was killed when his car clipped the blameless Jim Clark and speared into the crowd lining the track by Parabolica, taking the lives of 15 spectators along with him

Renault are such babies.... who cares if a team copies another? The only way you complain about this is if you are so insecure in you own engineering abilities that it is you only option. Kind of funny that the next “controversy” is a Renault bad that was designed by their team. VB and Simmonds.

Senna caused BOTH accidents with Prost. The video evidence is clear that Prost was ahead in both cases and Senna was obliged to yield the racing line to him.

I'm so fed up of people totally ignoring the fact that Roland Ratzenberger also passed away in 1994 and only talk about/remember Senna's death. That was also a BIG part of the tragedy of 1994. His death was/is ALWAYS overshadowed by Senna's untimely death the next day. Senna was a brilliant driver and his death was heartbreaking but I wish people would stop being so utterly disrespectful by ignoring the fact that Roland lost his life in '94 too. Ayrton was devastated by his death and showed an enormous amount of respect by having an Austrian flag in his car. I expect better from you THE RACE, that was so sloppy and disrespectful to Roland Ratzenberger's memory. You should know better. So PLEASE show the same amount of respect to Roland that Senna did in his last 24 hours.

@wolfvadar James,Hunt said the 89 crash was Senna's fault. Senna kept the 90 title despite wiping out the title rival. Nobody ever gpt a bigger gift from the FIA. BTW the pole was always on that side. The Senna 'documentary' denies clear facts. Just like Senna himself.

philipp ruest
philipp ruest 16 dagar sedan
@wolfvadar Wiping out another driver full throttle at 150 mph is beyond comparison. Total disrespect for even the health of the opponent. 1989 was different, the chicane is narrow and Senna was late, so it was always going to be tight and he needed Prost to be super fair to make it work. That's expecting a bit much.
