10 for '10

SpeedRead takes a look back at some of F1’s most memorable moments from an exciting 2010 season in pictures and video.

2010 saw the return of Michael Schumacher from retirement to drive for Mercedes. But it wouldn’t be title number eight for the German, who found the car didn’t suit him. Unfortunately, it seemed to suit his teammate just fine...

No more #2

Not the one you’d likely expect. Through much of his time at Ferrari, Rubens Barrichello was forced to wear a hat with a big #2 on it. Literally. Well, in Hungary, Rubinho didn’t move aside.

Incredible Hulk

Nico Hulkenberg put Williams on pole in Brazil. Alas, it would not be enough to save his job at season’s end.

Slippery Sutil

Rain in South Korea didn’t agree with Adrian Sutil in 2010. To say the least, he was a bit “off.”

Flying Mark

This coming together between Mark Webber and Heikki Kovalainen may have been the best remembered crash of 2010. Well, if not for the next one...

A couple of Turkeys

Freedom to race has dire consequences in Istanbul, as the simmering Vettel/Webber feud hit a new high.

Vettel certainly had his opinion on the matter...

Mark flips for Monaco

May 16, 2010 - Monte Carlo, Monaco - Redbull Renault driver Australian MARK WEBBER celebrating victory with a back flip into the Energy Station Swimming Pool at the Formula One World Championship Monaco Grand Priz.

These are the kind of flips Webber prefers, celebrating a win in Monaco with a dip in the pool...

Faster than you

What more is there to say?
