Jos Verstappen in 1994, Felipe Massa in 2008 and his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen a year later in Brazil. All three drivers have had their share of pit stop horrors. Both Jos and Kimi were engulfed in burning high-octane fuel while Felipe miss-timed his release in the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix to take the fuel hose and two mechanics along with him on exit. All exciting, but dangerous.

Canada Grand Prix Review
Coming off the back of a less than successful weekend in Monaco for Lewis Hamilton’s side of the garage, the Briton was eager to make amends for his dismal strategy in the principality. The Canadian Grand Prix is a favourite for most drivers in F1, and Lewis is definitely one of them. He took his maiden victory here, and the aggressive driving style that the track bares will be just one appendage in Lewis’s arsenal.
