Your European Grand Prix memories
The European Grand Prix edition of our classic Formula 1 races series presented us with a few problems - mainly that there has been only one race at Valencia's new street track, and it was one of the least entertaining in living memory!
That being the case, we have decided against including that in our list of five races and have instead made our pick from events that have gone under the title of European Grand Prix, regardless of the circuit at which they were held.
So we are going to ask you to debate the merits of the 1993, 1995, 1999, 2005 and 2007 European GPs - as well as any other races we may have left off that list that you think should be on it. As ever, we will select a race to highlight, influenced by your preferences - and if that event is from the era in which the BBC owned the rights to F1, we will broadcast the full 'Grand Prix' highlights programme at the time. In this case, that means 1993 and 1995.
It - and the shorter highlights of all races - will be shown on the bbc.co.uk/sport website and on the red button on digital TV in the week leading up to this year's race, which is on 23 August. Only UK users will be able to see the material, though.
The more knowledgeable enthusiasts among you will already be salivating at the prospects of seeing the highlights of some of those races. But for those of you who need your memories jogging, here's a quick run-through of what happened in the races we have picked.
Ayrton Senna's victory at Donington Park in 1993 is already firmly ensconced in F1 lore as one of the Brazilian legend's finest races, in which he put on display all the breathtaking virtuosity for which he became famous throughout his career.
Starting in fourth place on a wet track, Senna's McLaren was briefly down to fifth place at the first corner - at which point he began arguably the greatest opening lap in F1 history.
Having passed Michael Schumacher out of Redgate, Senna drove around the outside of Karl Wendlinger's Sauber at the daunting downhill Craner Curves. He dived inside the second placed Williams of Damon Hill into the uphill McLean's corner before finally taking the lead from Hill's team-mate Alain Prost into the penultimate corner, the Melbourne Hairpin.
That was just the beginning of the demonstration - Senna then proceeded to pull away into a race of his own, at one point lapping the entire field before easing up towards the end. And in a moment unique in F1, he set the fastest lap of the race having driven through the pit lane - it was a shorter route, and in those days there was no pit-lane speed limit.
No-one doubts the greatness of that performance. But before you all rush off and vote for it, I would urge you to consider the merits of the other four choices, all of which are outstanding in their own way.
Memories of the great drives of Michael Schumacher's career tend to focus on his years at Ferrari, but the 1995 European GP at the Nurburgring certainly deserves inclusion among them.
It was a classic tactical victory by Schumacher and his long-time associate Ross Brawn, in some ways reminiscent of his famous victory for Ferrari at the Hungaroring in 1998 - but with added on-track overtaking to heighten the thrills.
The Ferrari did only two stops, Schumacher three and the German had to close a gap of more than 20 seconds after making his final stop with 15 laps to go. With Alesi struggling on worn tyres and Schumacher revelling in his fresh ones, the Benetton closed at an astonishing rate.
Knowing a win would put him on the cusp of a second consecutive world title, he took the lead around the outside on the way into the final chicane with three laps to go. It was a thrilling finish that had the partisan crowd on its feet.
Four years later, a quite incredible wet-dry race featured a seemingly never-ending series of twists and turns and ended up with Johnny Herbert taking the only win for the Stewart Grand Prix team.
This decade has also provided a couple of crackers - both of them featuring storming drives by Fernando Alonso.
In 2005, much of the race was dominated by Kimi Raikkonen, his McLaren the fastest car in the race. But the Finn paid a heavy price for two lapses in concentration. First, he ran off the road at the chicane and damaged a barge board, an incident that may have contributed to him locking up his wheels badly while lapping Jacques Villeneuve's BAR.
Tyre changes were banned that year - and any driver who made one was given a penalty. Had McLaren chosen to bring Raikkonen in as soon as he damaged the tyre, he had the pace to recover and win a place on the rostrum, perhaps even win.
But they gambled on leaving him out. Alonso, whose Renault by now was 15 seconds adrift, realised he had a sniff of a win, and he drove right on the edge for the rest of the race, slowly eating away at Raikkonen's advantage as the McLaren struggled with its tyres.
Alonso's relentlessness meant Raikkonen could not ease off and protected the vulnerable. Instead, going into the last the tortured rubber finally gave up and the tyre exploded, ripping the front suspension apart at the same time. Raikkonen was out, and the win was Alonso's.
Two years later, in another event turned thrilling by the Nurburgring's capricious weather, Alonso showed off another of his skills - overtaking.
Heavy rain on the first lap led to a number of cars spinning off and the race being stopped. When it was restarted under safety car conditions 20 minutes later it was with the unusual site of the field being led by the Spyker of debutant Markus Winkelhock, whose team correctly anticipated the rain and fitted wet tyres to his car at the end of the warm-up lap.
Quickly, normal service was resumed, however, and Felipe Massa seemed on course for an easy victory, his faster Ferrari pulling away from Alonso's McLaren.
But then it rained again with eight laps to go. And after both men had fitted intermediate tyres, the Spaniard was much faster than the Brazilian and after closing the gap rapidly, Alonso took the lead with a brilliant move around the outside of the fifth gear Turn Six.
Choosing one race out of that cracking selection is not going to be easy - so debate away.
