1965 - Mike Spence (Lotus) racked up an easy win at the inaugural Race of Champions held at Brands Hatch after the leaders of the first heat retired: Jim Clark (Lotus) won the first heat, but crashed out in second, while Dan Gurney (Brabham) finished 2nd in heat one, but also retired from heat two with an ignition problem. Jackie Stewart (Owen Racing Organization BRM) failed to finish on the podium in either heat (7th/4th), but overall results put him in 2nd. Jo Bonnier (8th/2nd) officially finished a lap behind in 3rd, driving for Brabham entered by Rob Walker Racing Team. This was a non-championship event.

1983 - Nelson Piquet (Brabham) outstarted Patrick Tambay (Ferrari), passed Alain Prost (Renault) on lap 2 and eventually he caught and passed the pole-sitter Keke Rosberg (Williams) on lap 7 and went on to win his home race at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Keke Rosberg managed to stay behind Piquet and finished 2nd on the road. Niki Lauda (McLaren) finished in 3rd after his team-mate John Watson's engine expired while he also took and advantage of his non-stop strategy and passed the fading Alain Prost (Renault). However, that was not the end of the story because FIA decided to disqualify Rosberg because of a push start in the pits after his car momentarily caught fire during refueling. Thus, 2nd place went to...nobody. A poor start of the title defense for Rosberg. This was Piquet's 8th career win.

1964 - Innes Ireland (British Racing Partnership-BRM) won the shortened first event of the season held in atrocious conditions (sleet and snow) at Snetterton that wore the name of 2nd Daily Mirror Trophy after multiple leaders suffered from problems. Race favorites, poleman Jim Clark (Lotus) and Jack Brabham (Brabham) suffered badly from their cars being fitted with smaller wheels than the others and dropped through the field, both eventually retiring with mechanical failures. Graham Hill (Owen Racing Organization BRM) quickly inherited the lead, but it wasn't long until he aquaplaned into an earth bank on lap 6 and retired from the lead. Peter Arundell (Team Lotus) then led, but only until lap 22 when his gearbox failed thus Jo Bonnier got the lead and led briefly until Ireland took the lead from him on lap 26 and pulled away to take the victory. Bonnier (Rob Walker Racing Team Cooper) held on to 2nd. Bruce McLaren (Cooper Car Company) completed the podium.

1976 - James Hunt took his McLaren to victory at the 11th Race of Champions - the first non-championship event of the season held in Brands Hatch.

1993 - Alain Prost (Williams) won the South African Grand Prix held at Kyalami after he recovered from a poor start from pole position. At the start he dropped to 3rd behind Ayrton Senna (McLaren) and Michael Schumacher (Benetton), but on lap 13 he caught and passed Schumacher and eventually did the same with Senna on lap 25 and went on to win the race. Ayrton Senna had to survive the pressure from Schumacher, but the latter's attempt to pass Senna ended in a minor contact causing Schumacher to spin out into a retirement on lap 40. Thus, Riccardo Patrese (Benetton) inherited 3rd, but only until he also spun on lap 47, giving the podium place away to the Ligier of Mark Blundell. This was Prost's 45th career win, while for Blundell this was his first ever podium finish. Meanwhile, defending champion Nigel Mansell moved to Indycar leaving Williams unable to use #1 on their car, thus for the first time since 1973 a car with #0 on it raced. It was Damon Hill that did the honors for the season.

2010 - Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) benefited from Sebastian Vettel's (Red Bull Racing) misfortune and went on to win the opening race of the season at the Bahrain Grand Prix. At the start Vettel maintained the lead with two Ferrari's switching positions - Alonso actually passing Felipe Massa for 2nd. That order was maintained until a few laps after the pit-stops Vettel suddenly dropped off the pace with a problem which after the race was identified as problem with a spark plug. This dropped him through the field promoting Fernando Alonso to a race win, Felipe Massa to 2nd and Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) to 3rd. This was Alonso's 22nd career win which marked a great Ferrari debut. For Felipe Massa this was his first race and first podium after recovering from a horrible incident at the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying in the middle of the previous season. Meanwhile, defending champion Jenson Button, making his McLaren debut, had a timid race finishing over 40 seconds behind in 7th. He was just one second behind the guy making his F1 comeback - Michael Schumacher finished 6th for Mercedes in what was his first race since retiring in 2006.

1981 - Defending champion Alan Jones (Williams) won the opening race of the year at the United States Grand Prix West, held on the streets of Long Beach. Riccardo Patrese (Arrows) was the pole sitter and led early on followed by Carlos Reutemann (Williams) and Jones. That was the case until lap 25 when Reutemann caught and passed Patrese just before the latter started to suffer from misfiring engine and eventually retired not long after losing the lead. However, Carlos didn't last in the lead too long as he was caught by Jones. Then on lap 32 Reutemann slid wide while lapping Marc Surer (Ensign) and let Jones through to the lead. After that Jones easily pulled away and won the race. Reutemann had no trouble completing a Williams 1-2. The podium was completed by Nelson Piquet (Brabham) who had a lonely race and finished half-a-minute behind the Williams drivers. This was Jones'es 11th career win. Meanwhile, Eddie Cheever finished in 5th for Tyrrell and scored his first career points.

1952 - Alberto Ascari secured his first win of the year by winning the non-championship event called the 2nd Gran Premio di Siracusa. He drove for Ferrari.

1969 - Jackie Stewart (Matra International) passed the pole-sitter Graham Hill (Team Lotus) and went on to win the 4th Race of Champions held in Brands Hatch. Hill ended up a close 2nd. The podium was completed by Denny Hulme (Bruce McLaren Motor Racing Ltd), he finished a lap down. Stewart racked up his 2nd win of the year, 2 weeks after winning the South African Grand Prix. This was the first non-championship event of the year.

1975 - Tom Pryce (Shadow) had a poor start from pole-position, but recovered by the end of lap 1 to win the 10th Race of Champions, a non-championship event held at Brands Hatch. He dropped behind Jody Scheckter (Tyrrell), Ronnie Peterson (Lotus) and Jacky Ickx (Lotus), but passed them all very soon. Just after mid-race Scheckter retired from 2nd place with an engine failure. That elevated Peterson to 2nd and Ickx to 3rd, but only until they were both passed by charging John Watson (Surtees). He was the one that finished in 2nd. Peterson completed the podium.

2008 - Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) led for most of the way only losing the lead briefly at the pit-stops and took an easy win at the opening event of the year - the Australian Grand Prix held in Melbourne. Robert Kubica (BMW Sauber) was in 2nd for most of the race, but on lap 48 he collided with Kazuki Nakajima (Williams) and retired thus his team-mate Nick Heidfeld inherited 2nd. Nico Rosberg (Williams) was in strategic battle with Heidfeld, but because they both pitted on the same lap, nothing changed and Rosberg finished in 3rd. This was Hamilton's 5th career win. Meanwhile, for Rosberg this was his maiden podium finish. Also in this race, Kazuki Nakajima secured his first career points by finishing in 6th. It was the same case for Sebastian Bourdais (Toro Rosso) who finished in 7th. Behind those two there was the defending champion Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) who had an interesting afternoon. After starting from 15th he made quick progress up to 8th in the first lap, but two moments in the middle of the race ruined his race. First was just after the restart (after Coulthard and Massa collision) as Räikkönen made an over-ambitious move on Kovalainen for second place and outbraked himself into turn 3 losing several places while the second one, well.... Eventually he did got classified in 8th although his engine expired 5 laps from the end.

1968 - Bruce McLaren (in his own McLaren Motor Racing Ltd entry) converted the pole position into an easy race win at the 3rd Race of Champions held at Brands Hatch. Pedro Rodriguez (Owen Racing Organization) came from the midfield and finished in 2nd. Denny Hulme completed the podium and made it two McLaren's in the top 3. This was the first non-championship event of the year.

1974 - Jacky Ickx (Lotus) came from 11th on the grid and won the non-championship 9th Race of Champions held at Brands Hatch. He also got the fastest lap on his way to victory. Niki Lauda (Ferrari) started from 3rd and was at the front from the start, but Ickx was just too fast for him although he finished just 1.5 second behind. Emerson Fittipaldi (McLaren) had a very lonely race and finished nearly 20 seconds behind and completed the podium. This was Ickx's only win of the year.

2002 - Ralf Schumacher (Williams-BMW) won the Malaysian Grand Prix held in Sepang. Michael Schumacher (Ferrari) was on pole and was challenged for the lead in the first turn by Montoya. This was the result: This left Rubens Barrichello (Ferrari), Ralf, Kimi Raikkonen (McLaren) and David Coulthard (McLaren) to battle out for the lead. It wasn't long before both McLaren went out with engine failures while the other two had a strategic battle. Barrichello lost out to Ralf (1 stop strategy) after his 2nd pit stop, but he was catching Ralf rapidly until he was too forced to retire with engine failure. This moved Jenson Button (Renault) to 2nd, but sadly his car was not quick enough especially after developing a suspension problem and he was forced to drop behind the recovering Montoya and Michael Schumacher who went on to finish 2nd and 3rd. This was Ralf Schumacher's 4th career win. Meanwhile, Felipe Massa finished in 6th for Sauber and scored his first ever point. In terms of championship M.Schumacher still led, but now only 2 points ahead of Montoya who remained in 2nd, while Ralf Schumacher's win moved him straight into the 3rd spot, 4 points behind.

2013 - Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus Renault) made his two-stop strategy work, jumped the field with 15 laps to go and won the opening race of the season at the Australian Grand Prix held in Albert Park. Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) made his second stop earlier than Felipe Massa (Ferrari) and Sebastian Vettel (Infinity Red Bull Racing) jumped both of them and went on to finish in 2nd. Meanwhile, a poor strategy for Massa saw him staying out for too long in the first stint and he lost eventual 3rd to the defending champion Vettel who completed the podium despite suffering from quite severe tire wear. This was Raikkonen's 20th career win which equaled the win tally of the most successful Finn in Formula One - Mika Hakkinen. Meanwhile, Adrian Sutil had a great F1 comeback as he led briefly in the first stint due to him being the late pit stopper and eventually finished in a great 7th for Force India.

1973 - Peter Gethin (Chevron-Chevrolet) won the first non-championship event of the year - the 8th Race of Champions held at Brands Hatch circuit. This was his only win of the year.

2001 - Michael Schumacher (Ferrari) won a chaotic Malaysian Grand Prix held in Sepang after driving through the field. He started on pole and was in control, but on lap 3 rain began to fall causing both him and his team-mate Rubens Barrichello to go very wide. This elevated Jarno Trulli (Jordan) into the race lead while the Ferrari's dropped to 7th and 3rd respectively. Then the downpour increased and caused the safety car to come out. Jarno Trulli managed to spin out behind the safety car which gave away the lead to David Coulthard (McLaren). Meanwhile, everyone pitted and there was once again some bad fortune for Ferrari as Barrichello endured a 72 second pit-stop with Schumacher waiting in queue. So it was Coulthard (McLaren) that led at the restart with Ferrari's in 10th and 11th. However, the pace of Ferrari's after the restart was rather good because after switching places at the restart they both went through the field, and 5 laps after the restart they were... 1-2, with Coulthard in 3rd. And that was the result. Michael Schumacher won and scored his 46th career win and his 2nd from two races. That gave him a 10-point lead in the championship ahead of Coulthard and Barrichello who were tied for 2nd.

2007 - Kimi Raikkonen (making his debut for Ferrari) pretty much dominated the Australian Grand Prix, only losing the lead during pit-stops. Meanwhile, the battle for the other podium placings went the strategical way. Nick Heidfeld (BMW-Sauber) and the debutant Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) passed Fernando Alonso (McLaren) at the start. However after the first pit-stop Heidfeld pitted first and that meant that Hamilton, who was on a heavier fuel load, jumped him at the pit-stops and was now in 2nd with Alonso in 3rd. And that was the standings until the 2nd stops when Alonso-Hamilton situation went the other way around with Hamilton pitting first and Alonso afterwards. That meant that Alonso and Hamilton switched positions again and that was it. This was Raikkonen's 10th career win. Alonso's title defence started with a 2nd place finish while Lewis Hamilton made the podium on his debut. This was also the first race in World Championship history where all three podium finishers were making their debut for their team, disregarding the very first F1 race in 1950 where all drivers made their debuts.

2012 - Jenson Button (McLaren) led all but two laps (because of the pit stops) and easily won the opening event of the season at the Australian Grand Prix held at Albert Park. The battle for 2nd meanwhile went down between Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) and the defending champion Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull Racing), but before that commenced Vettel disposed of the two Mercedes drivers. He passed Nico Rosberg early on and benefited from Michael Schumacher's gearbox failure. Vettel managed to jump Hamilton at the second pit-stop and finished in 2nd with Hamilton in 3rd. This was Button's 13th career win. Meanwhile, Daniel Ricciardo (Toro Rosso) finished in 9th on his debut in his home race and scored 2 points.

1972 - Emerson Fittipaldi (Lotus) won the first non-championship event of the new season as he won the 7th Race of Champions held at Brands Hatch. This was his only win at this event.

1978 - Keke Rosberg (Theodore Racing) surprised everyone as in only his 2nd Formula One race he came from the midfield and won the non-championship 30th BRDC International Trophy Race held in torrential rain at Silverstone. He finished just 2 seconds ahead of the double world champion Emerson Fittipaldi (Copersucar Fittipaldi). The podium was completed by the local Tony Trimmer (Melchester Racing McLaren).

2006 - Giancarlo Fisichella (Renault) led from pole position and met little opposition as he drove to victory at the Malaysian Grand Prix held in Sepang. He only surrendered the lead briefly during the pit stop exchanges. His team-mate Fernando Alonso didn't had the greatest qualifying, but had an amazing start jumping from 7th to 3rd and developed a strategical battle with Jenson Button (Honda) - a battle which he won by staying out longer before the second stop. Button was left to content with 3rd. This was Fisichella's 3rd and last career win. In terms of the championship Alonso now established a 7 point lead over both Michael Schumacher (Ferrari, 6th place in the race) and Jenson Button with Fisichella in 4th, 8 points behind.

1977 - James Hunt (McLaren) drove his car to victory at the 12th Race of Champions, held at Brands Hatch. This was the only non-championship race held that year and one of the last ever non-championship races in Formula One history. By the way, this was Hunt's 2nd win in this event, his first came a year before.

2005 - Fernando Alonso (Renault) took a dominant win from pole position at the Malaysian Grand Prix in Sepang. He led all, but 5 laps. Jarno Trulli (Toyota) was pretty much stuck in 2nd position from the start and had a lonely race finishing 25 seconds behind in 2nd. With this result he secured the first ever podium finish for Toyota. Meanwhile, a battle for 3rd between Mark Webber (Williams-BMW) and championship leader Giancarlo Fisichella (Renault) ended up in a collision. Thus, 3rd place went to Nick Heidfeld (Williams-BMW). This was Alonso's 2nd career win. This result made him the new championship leader 6 points ahead of his non finishing team-mate. Meanwhile, Trulli's 2nd place enabled him to go up into the shared 3rd between himself, Rubens Barrichello (Ferrari, his 200th GP, a non-finisher) and David Coulthard (Red Bull, 6th place in the race) in the championship.

1971 - Clay Regazzoni (Ferrari) came from 3rd on the grid and dominated the 6th Race of Champions, a non-championship event held in Brands Hatch. That was his only win of the year and also his only win in this event. Jackie Stewart (Tyrrell) was the pole-sitter, but was no match for Clay and finished 24 seconds behind in 2nd. John Surtees (Surtees) was the first car a lap down in 3rd.

1982 - Alain Prost (Renault) won the opening race of the year at the Brazilian Grand Prix after some weight controversy. Prost was the pole-sitter but very quickly dropped through the field and it was Gilles Villeneuve (Ferrari) that went into the lead. Behind him Keke Rosberg (Williams) passed Rene Arnoux and Alain Prost (both driving the turbocharged Renault's) only to be swallowed by both of them in the straight. It has gone worse for Rosberg as a few laps later the two Brabham's (Riccardo Patrese and Nelson Piquet) also disposed of him. It then developed into a great battle between all of them. Piquet passed both Prost and Arnoux and went 2nd. It wasn't long before Rosberg did the same and went up to 3rd. After that both chargers started to chase the runaway leader Villeneuve. They did catch him, but couldn't pass him. So they started to fight between themselves. Rosberg pulled a move on Piquet twice, but each time failed to keep the place. He once went wide, while on the other occasion he made the move successful only to be slip-streamed passed by Piquet. However, while all of this was happening they caught and started to pressurize the leader Villeneuve. That eventually paid off as in a desperate defensive move Villeneuve left his braking way too late and spun off into a retirement. After that Piquet and Rosberg cruised home to finish in 1st and 2nd. Meanwhile, in a battle for 3rd Riccardo Patrese was destined to finish in that place, but unfortunately a late race spin gave away that place to Prost. That was the result, but after the race Piquet and Rosberg were both disqualified for their cars being underweight. Thus, Prost took the victory. John Watson (McLaren) and Nigel Mansell (Lotus) took advantage of that and got 2nd and 3rd respectively. This was Prost's 5th career win and his second from two races that year. Michele Alboreto meanwhile finished in 4th for Tyrrell and scored his first ever points. It was the same case for Manfred Winkelhock (ATS) who had his only ever points finish, getting two points for 5th. In terms of the championship Prost now had 11 point lead (more that a race cushion) over John Watson. Carlos Reutemann (Williams, 12 points behind) was demoted to 3rd behind Watson after failing to finish the race.

2004 - Michael Schumacher (Ferrari) continued his dominant start of the season as he only surrendered the lead during the pit stops on his way to winning the Malaysian Grand Prix. He led off the start followed by his team-mate Rubens Barrichello who was working as a "guard" for Michael. However, he went wide on the 1st lap letting Juan Pablo Montoya (Williams-BMW) and Kimi Raikkonen (McLaren) through. It was Montoya vs Schumacher in a strategical battle, but Michael managed to pull out a bit of a lead before the first stop and that haunted Montoya for the whole race as after the last stop it was those few seconds that denied Montoya a win. Meanwhile in 3rd there was Jenson Button (BAR Honda) who managed to dispose of Barrichello and Raikkonen as the race progressed and scored his maiden podium finish. This was Schumacher's 72nd career win and his 2nd from 2 races. This allowed him to extend the lead in the championship to 7 points ahead of Barrichello (4th in the race) and 8 points ahead of Montoya.

1953 - Toulo de Graffenried (Maserati) won the first non-championship event of the year as he drove to victory at the 3rd Gran Premio di Siracusa. This was his only win at this event.

1970 - Jackie Stewart (defending World Champion, driving for March) converted pole position into a victory at the non-championship 5th Race of Champions held at Brands Hatch. Jochen Rindt (Lotus) came from the second row to finish half a minute behind in 2nd. The podium was completed by Denny Hulme (McLaren) - last car on the lead lap. This was Stewart's first win of the year and 2nd win of this event, having won it the year before (he drove for Matra on that occasion).

1992 - Nigel Mansell (Williams) led from start to finish and went on to win in what was the last ever Mexican Grand Prix held in Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. Riccardo Patrese was also on his own for the whole race and finished 13 seconds behind, completing a Williams 1-2. And in 3rd place there was Michael Schumacher (Benetton) who passed his team-mate Martin Brundle early on and also benefited from a transmission problem for Ayrton Senna (McLaren). This was Mansell's 23rd career win and his 2nd from two races. This allowed him extend the lead over Patrese (who incidentally finished 2nd in both races) to 8 points. Meanwhile, with his first ever podium finish Michael Schumacher passed Senna for 3rd in the championship and was now 13 points behind the lead.

1986 - Nelson Piquet (Williams) won the opening race of the season at the Brazilian Grand Prix held in Jacarepagua. Ayrton Senna (Lotus) was the pole sitter for the race, but it wasn't long until he was challenged by the two Williams drivers. First one to attempt the pass was Nigel Mansell, but he failed miserably...

His team-mate Piquet, however, was more successful in passing Senna on lap 3 and after that he just ran away into the distance and won. Senna settled for 2nd, half a minute behind. Meanwhile, Jacques Laffite (Ligier) passed his team-mate Rene Arnoux and finished 3rd, but only after the hard charging defending champion Alain Prost (McLaren) was forced to retire with engine failure. This was Piquet's 14th career win. Meanwhile, Martin Brundle (Tyrrell) finished in 5th and scored his first career points.

2003 - Kimi Raikkonen (McLaren) won the Malaysian Grand Prix after winning the strategical battle. Fernando Alonso (Renault) was on pole position and easily led away at the start, meanwhile his team-mate Jarno Trulli was forced into a spin in the first corner by Michael Schumacher (Ferrari). This elevated the championship leader David Coulthard (McLaren) and Kimi Raikkonen (McLaren) into 2nd and 3rd. However, Coulthard was forced to retire as early as lap 2 due to electronics failure. Later on the first pit-stops arrived spelling doom for Alonso because he was on a lighter fuel load then Raikkonen, thus Kimi jumped him at the first pit stop and never looked back. It was the same situation for Alonso on the second stop, this time it was Rubens Barrichello (Ferrari) who benefited. And that was it. Kimi Raikkonen scored his first career win and became the new championship leader, 6 points ahead of his non-finishing team-mate. Meanwhile for Fernando Alonso this was his first F1 podium.

2008 - Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) jumped his team-mate and the pole sitter Felipe Massa after the first pit stop and went on to win the Malaysian Grand Prix held in Sepang. Later on in the race Massa spun out (still failing to cope with the lack of traction control, a rule change for that year) thus giving away 2nd place to Robert Kubica (BMW Sauber). Heikki Kovalainen (McLaren) came from 8th on the grid and completed the podium. This was Raikkonen's 16th career win. With that he moved to 2nd in the championship, tied with Nick Heidfeld (BMW Sauber, 6th place in the race) and 3 points behind the leader Lewis Hamilton (McLaren, 5th place in the race).

2013 - Sebastian Vettel (Infinity Red Bull Racing) scored pole position ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix. This was the 38th pole position of his career.

1991 - Ayrton Senna (McLaren) led from pole position and had to put a majestic drive after he lost 4th and than later 3rd and 5th gears to win the Brazilian Grand Prix held in Interlagos. Nigel Mansell (Williams) was his challenger for the race, but suffered from bad luck. His first stop lasted a massive 14 seconds and after he recovered from that he suffered a puncture. And to top the things off his gearbox failed with 10 laps to go. It was then Riccardo Patrese's (Williams) turn to try and catch ailing Senna, but because Patrese had gearbox problems of his own he felt short and finished just 3 seconds behind in 2nd. The podium was completed by Gerhard Berger (McLaren). This was Senna's 28th career win and his 2nd from two races that year. This win allowed him extend the championship lead against Alain Prost (Ferrari, 6th in the race) to 11 points. Patrese's podium was his first points finish of the season and those points moved him into a shared 3rd with Nelson Piquet (Benetton, 5th in the race).

2013 - Sebastian Vettel (Infiniti Red Bull Racing Renault) won the controversial Malaysian Grand Prix held in Sepang. He was on pole position and led in the first laps until he was the first to gamble on slicks. This meant that after the first pit stop he dropped a bit, however it wasn't long before he regained the lead. After the second stop though he did lost the lead to his team-mate Mark Webber. And then the controversy started as Vettel went against team orders and passed Webber for the victory a few laps from the end. Despite all this it was a Red Bull Racing 1-2. Meanwhile, behind them there was the two Mercedes drivers: Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. They were in the same "teamwork" situation, however they did hold station and finished 3rd and 4th respectively. This was Vettel's 27th career win which equaled him with Jackie Stewart in terms of wins. This also allowed him to pass Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus, 7th in the race) and Fernando Alonso (Ferrari, early race DNF) for the lead in the drivers championship. Raikkonen is now 9 points behind in 2nd, while Webber jumped to 3rd and is 14 points behind.

1984 - Alain Prost (McLaren) won the opening race of the season at the Brazilian Grand Prix held at Jacarepagua. Michele Alboreto (Ferrari) had the best start and led early on until a loose bolt in his car's right front brake caliper released all the brake fluid, causing his brakes to overheat, ending his race in the process. This released Niki Lauda (McLaren) into a massive 40 second lead. However, he was not to finish as his car suffered an electrical failure. After another leader retirement it was now Derek Warwick (Renault) and Alain Prost battling it out for the lead. Prost managed to catch and pass Warwick, but shortly afterwards he pitted for tires. However, the battle was short lived because Warwick was forced to retire with suspension failure, leaving Prost a runaway winner. After all of this it was Keke Rosberg (Williams) that came 2nd. Pole sitter Elio de Angelis (Lotus) finished in 3rd. Defending World Champion Nelson Piquet (Brabham) failed to finish after an engine failure. This was Prost's 10th career win. Meanwhile, Thierry Boutsen finished in 6th for Arrows and scored his first career point.

1990 - Alain Prost (Ferrari) won the Brazilian Grand Prix. Ayrton Senna (McLaren) was the pole-sitter and early leader while behind him there was Gerhard Berger (McLaren), Thierry Boutsen (Williams) and Prost. It wasn't too long before both Boutsen and Prost passed Berger to go up into 2nd and 3rd. That was the order until lap 30 when Boutsen's pit-stop did not gone well as he crashed into the pit equipment due to failing brakes. Prost, meanwhile, was now piling on the pressure on the runaway leader Senna and it paid off when Senna made contact with a back marker Satoru Nakajima (Tyrrell) forcing Senna to pit for a nosecone. After that Prost drove to victory. Meanwhile, Riccardo Patrese (Williams) climbed to 2nd, unfortunately he was forced to retire just 6 laps from the end due to oil pressure problems. Thus, Berger ended up 2nd. Senna managed to recover to 3rd. This was Prost's 40th career win. Ayrton Senna still led the championship with 13 points, 4 points ahead of the race winner.

2012 - Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) won the Malaysian Grand Prix held in Sepang. The race started in wet conditions and caused massive chaos. The race was suspended for an hour or so. After the restart almost everyone pitted thus it was Alonso and Sergio Perez (Sauber, who changed his tires to Intermediates before the Red Flag) that emerged in front. After the mid-point of the race Perez started to rapidly catch Alonso, he was on his tail until the pit stops on laps 39 to 42, after which Perez lost time, only to catch Alonso rapidly again. However, just as Perez was about to make a move on Alonso he made a mistake in turn 14 and ran wide. That settled the race positions. The podium was completed by Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) who had a very timid race from pole and only lost out to the charging leading duo. This was Alonso's 28th career win. It was also the first ever podium finish for Sergio Perez. Meanwhile, Jean-Eric Vergne (Toro Rosso) finished in 8th and scored his first career points. This win elevated Alonso from 5th into the lead of the championship. He was 5 points ahead of Hamilton, with the pre-race championship leader Jenson Button (McLaren, 14th in the race) now 3rd, 10 points behind.

1951 - Luigi Villoresi (Ferrari) won the non-championship 12th Pau Grand Prix. This was his only win at this event and his 2nd and last win of the year.

1951 - Birabongse Bhanudej, better known as B.Bira, won the non-championship 3rd Richmond Trophy held at Goodwood. This was his only ever Formula One race win. He drove for Maserati.

1961 - Jack Brabham (Tommy Atkins entered Cooper) won the non-championship 2nd Lombank Trophy held at Snetterton. This event is best known as marking the start of a new era, as this was the first race in Europe to be run to the new 1.5 liter rules although they were no match for those few that ran and actually finished in the Inter-Continental Formula cars (the 2.5 litre ones). Brabham was one of them and behind him Cliff Allison (UDT-Laystall Racing Team Lotus) were the only finishers of the 2.5 liter group. The podium was completed by John Surtees (Yeoman Credit Racing Team Cooper). This was Brabham's first win of the year and his only win at this event.

1989 - Nigel Mansell (Ferrari) made a great start from 6th on the grid, passed Thierry Boutsen (Williams) early on and afterwards chased down and passed the leader Riccardo Patrese (Williams) on lap 15 and went on to win the opening race of the year - Brazilian Grand Prix held at Jacarepagua (the circuits last ever Grand Prix). Alain Prost (McLaren) was pretty much on his own as he only led during the periods between Mansell's and his own pit stops and easily took 2nd after his main rival for that position Patrese retired with a camshaft pulley failure. Thus, 3rd place went to Mauricio Gugelmin (March). This was Mansell's 14th career win. This was also the only career podium for Gugelmin. Johnny Herbert (Benetton) finished in 4th and scored 3 points on his debut. Meanwhile, it was not such a good day for the defending champion Ayrton Senna (McLaren) as he was out-started and then spun out in the first corner. He eventually finished 11th.

1995 - Michael Schumacher (Benetton) won the opening race of the season at the Brazilian Grand Prix. He had the better start and passed the pole sitter Damon Hill (Williams Renault) with David Coulthard (Williams Renault) running in 3rd. That was the order until the first stop when Hill jumped Schumacher. The new race order was maintained until lap 30 when sadly Hill's race was cut short by the spin which was caused by the gearbox failure. Thus, Schumacher and Coulthard just finished of the remaining laps with Coulthard being unable to challenge for the lead. Gerhard Berger (Ferrari) was the best of the rest as he completed the podium although he was a lap down. This was 11th career win for the defending champion Schumacher.

2000 - Michael Schumacher (Ferrari) won the Brazilian Grand Prix after passing the pole-sitter Mika Hakkinen (McLaren) on lap 2. It was pretty much plain sailing for Schumacher afterwards, especially after Hakkinen and Rubens Barrichello (Ferrari) later retired within laps of each other with oil pressure and hydraulics problems respectively. Thus, the second McLaren of David Coulthard (McLaren) finished in 2nd. Giancarlo Fisichella (Benetton) completed the podium. However, this was not the end of the story because after the race all of the top six cars except for Fisichella were disqualified because they had problems with their wooden floors. The teams appealed but while the FIA was scrutineering the cars again, they found out that the front wing end plates on Coulthard's car were 7mm lower than they should have been. Thus, the position of everyone except for Coulthard was reinstated meaning that Fisichella ended up 2nd. Heinz-Harald Frentzen (Jordan) was moved up into the podium position. This was Schumacher's 37th career win and his 2nd from two races. That moved him 12 points clear of the new 2nd place man Fisichella. Also in this race, Jenson Button finished in 6th for Williams and scored his first career point.
