    Felipe Massa puts a brave face on at the podium ceremony in Brazil 2008. A few minutes earlier, Massa had crossed the line in 1st place, winning the 2008 F1 World Championship, the first Brazilian since Ayrton Senna to do so, and the first to do so on home ground. 30 seconds after Felipe crossed the line, Timo Glock back in 5th place runs wide at the final corner, allowing Lewis Hamilton to pass him and claim an extra point, which means he wins the title.

    30 seconds of the ultimate glory for a racing driver, in the melting pot of emotion that a home race and Sennas homeland could produce, only to have it snatched away from you. Such dignity in sport is rarely seen, and I, for one, thought more of Massa as a loser that day, than I think of most winners.

    2nd one really shows how, despite being surrounded by cars, Wheldon was on his own at the final instant. So sad.

    Henry Surtees fatal accident - Sorry its a video but only 25 seconds long. He's in the yellow and blue car.
    Probably the worst example of bad luck and bad timing there is.
