Your classic Belgian Grands Prix
There were two obvious potential front-runners in our selection of five great Belgian Grands Prix for the latest edition of our classic Formula 1 races series, and the thrilling 1995 and 1998 races did indeed turn out to be the most popular.
Michael Schumacher's brilliant victory for Benetton in 1995 is our pick and the full 'Grand Prix' highlights programme of the time is embedded below. There are also links to shorter highlights of that event and the other four races we chose - 1985, 1992, 1998 and 2008.
If you would like to know a little more about these races before watching them, then have a quick look at last week's blog on this subject.

The highlights will be available on satellite and cable from 1500 on Wednesday 26 August and will stay up until 1400 on Friday 28 August. They will be on Freeview channel 301 from 1400 on Thursday 27 August until 1930. Then from 2200 until 9am on Friday 28 August.
The 1995 race earned the most requests among respondents to this blog - but only by a small margin over the spill-a-minute 1998 race. And some of those who 'voted' for '95 made it clear that you actually thought '98 the more exciting race, and would have plumped for that if we were able to show a half-hour highlights clip of that.
I expected the 1998 race to be the most popular and it turns out that had you all voted with your first preferences - rather than tactically to ensure you would get at least one long video to watch - then it would have come out on top.
It was indeed a brilliant race - but this was a particularly strong selection. I was especially surprised that the 1992 and 2008 races did not feature strongly in your preferences. In fact, Michael Schumacher's maiden career win and the manic last three laps of last year's race were less popular than the less well known 1985 event won by Ayrton Senna.
Perhaps that is a reflection of both the tactical voting that is becoming increasingly prevalent, as well as the fact that this was a particularly strong selection of races, as is fitting for arguably the greatest race track on earth (with the possible exception of Suzuka, but more of that in the Japanese edition of this series).
Certainly, it's well worth watching all the clips if you have time. There is some great racing there which should whet your appetites nicely for this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.
Thanks, too, for your suggestions of races we had missed - I knew 2000 would feature strongly because of Mika Hakkinen's brilliant overtaking manoeuvre on Michael Schumacher to win the race.
I remember it well - I had a bit of a set-to with Schumacher in the news conference after the race because he would not acknowledge that he had been out of order in his defensive tactics on the lap before Hakkinen made it past. Perhaps I'll tell you more about that in next year's selection.
The issue of us not cutting longer highlights clips for races when ITV held the F1 rights in the UK from 1997-2008 has become something of a recurring theme on 'classic races' blogs.
I do understand the frustration of those ardent fans among you who think we should expend the effort to cut extended highlights for all the races we offer, rather than just broadcast the ones for which they already exist because that was the era when the BBC held the rights to F1.
But I'm afraid there is no prospect of us changing our approach. Popular though this feature is, I'm afraid putting together these clips is a fairly labour-intensive process and the people who do it have to work on other sports as well.
It is our responsibility to cover all sport as best we can on limited resources, and I'm afraid we simply cannot justify the significant amounts of extra time and work involved in producing them.
For those of you who do not understand our decision, it might also be worth you bearing in mind that the shorter five-to-nine minutes highlights clips are always more popular - even than the longer versions of the same races.
Having said all that, we are thrilled that you like this feature enough to ask us for more and more - and I'd like to reassure you all that we intend to carry on with it next year.
In the meantime, enjoy the race clips on offer, as well as this weekend's race in Spa. And I'm sure we're all looking forward to the classic races selection for the Italian Grand Prix, which I will publish on this blog next week.
