For any driver the best time to make up places is at the very start of the race. Sometimes they might gain a place or two or – if it goes really well – even more.
This compilation video by YouTuber Antti Kalhola focuses on the ‘even more’ end of the spectrum, as he counts down his personal top 30 best starts of all time.
It’s a seriously well-made video featuring a wide range of awesome starts, from the usual culprits like Fernando Alonso and Jean Alesi as well as a few more unknown ones. Stefan Bellof’s barrier-clattering one from the 1985 Portuguese GP is especially impressive!
