Brazilian Grand Prix of 2008: 

This was the season's final race in 2008: The race was won by Felipe Massa. He was racing on his home ground. Fernando Alonso came in second, with Kimi Raikkonen, Massa's teammate, completing the podium. As it was the title-deciding race, it had much more significance. Lewis Hamilton led the season with 94 points, and Massa was second with 87 points.

To win the championship, Massa needed to finish first, and Hamilton needed to finish sixth or lower. The race had a delayed start due to rain, and the conditions were damp for the entire race. After Massa finished first, the crowd erupted in joy as Hamilton was placed sixth at that time. Moreover, Hamilton passed Glock towards the end, finishing fifth. Thus, Hamilton won the championship in the end, and this was his first championship.

2014 Canadian Grand Prix:

The qualifying session was dominated by the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. Nico Rosberg began the race from pole position, with teammate Lewis Hamilton starting in second place. Daniel Ricciardo started the race from the sixth position. Furthermore, the Mercedes faced technical issues, and Lewis Hamilton was forced to retire from the race. In the end, Ricciardo was able to secure a victory, the first of his career. The race was marked by technical issues and accidents, with as many as 12 cars retiring from the race. Only 10 cars finished the race. Ricciardo was able to overtake Nico Rosberg on the 68th lap out of 70. He was able to pass Rosberg on his first attempt.

2005 Japanese Grand Prix: 

The Renault of Giancarlo Fisichella and Fernando Alonso were dominating the season. The only credible competition the Renaults faced that season was from the McLaren of Kimi Raikkonen.

It is one of the most memorable drives of Kimi Raikkonen's career.

2019 German Grand Prix: 

The weather was very unpredictable in this race, so the drivers had to keep changing tyres. It was chaotic in the pit lane, and Max Verstappen sealed the victory over Sebastian Vettel. Lewis Hamilton led the race from the start until lap 27 before collapsing. He finished in ninth place. Valtteri Bottas, who was looking strong in fourth position, crashed on the 56th lap and ended his race.
