Pick your classic Italian Grand Prix
After the embarrassment of riches in the Belgian edition of our classic grands prix series, the selection for Italy follows in the same vein.
Monza has a grand prix history stretching back to 1922, so it is hardly surprising that there have been some cracking races at the atmospheric old autodrome in the city's Royal Park. But even allowing for the unfortunate gaps in the BBC archive, we have some tasty morsels for you to enjoy.
Those gaps mean, sadly, that we will not be able to show you highlights of the famous 1971 Italian Grand Prix, which saw the closest finish in Formula 1 history. For those desperate to watch this, though, I'm pretty sure that is available on a popular video sharing website near you.
Instead, we have chosen five races from more recent history - 1988, 1990, 1995, 1999 and 2004.
The first of those, the 1988 Italian GP, is famous for two reasons - it was the event that spoilt McLaren's clean sweep of all that year's races, and it was a Ferrari one-two at home only a month after the death of the team's legendary founder Enzo Ferrari.
Between them, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost won 15 of the 16 races in 1988, sweeping all before them in the brilliant McLaren-Honda MP4/4. Monza was the one that got away.
As usual, the two men had battled for much of the race and, as was more common than is generally realised, winning was harder for McLaren than they made it look. This time, for once, things unravelled.
Both men knew their fuel consumption was marginal - this was the final year of turbocharged engines in F1, and the teams that used them, such as McLaren, were restricted to only 150 litres of fuel for a race.
Still, they went at it hammer and tongs, though. But before long Prost, lying in second place behind his team-mate, knew that he was not going to finish the race - he could feel his engine tightening. Despite this, he continued to keep up the pressure on Senna.
The rumour has long been that he did this knowing he would retire, in the hope that Senna would run out of fuel, or at least not be able to win. The two men were in a tight battle for the championship, so if Prost was going to retire, the last thing he needed was for Senna to win.
If that was the plan, Prost has never come clean about it - not even in the interview he gave Mail on Sunday journalist Malcolm Folley for his excellent new book Prost versus Senna.
By accident or design, though, that is exactly what happened. When Prost retired with engine failure on lap 35 - with less than 20 to go - Senna found himself leading from the two Ferraris, with Gerhard Berger ahead of Michele Alboreto.
By now, though, Senna was in serious trouble with his fuel consumption, and the Ferraris - which were nowhere near as quick as the McLaren when it came to out-and-out pace - began to close in.
With two laps remaining, Berger was no more than two seconds behind Senna, who was coming up to lap the Williams of Jean-Louis Schlesser, deputising in his only F1 drive for the ill Nigel Mansell.
Senna knew he could not afford to waste either the time he would lose waiting until after the corner, or the fuel he would use up by doing so. So heading into the first chicane, he dived for the inside from quite a long way back. A more experienced driver, used to making way for Senna's sometimes banzai lapping manoeuvres, might have noticed him coming. But the Frenchman did not, and the two cars collided.
Senna was out - and with him went McLaren's 100% record. In the pits, team boss Ron Dennis gave a rueful smile. In the grandstands and on the makeshift scaffolding that pops up around Monza on race day, more than 100,000 tifosi went wild.
Two years later, Senna and Prost again battled out the race win, this time with the Frenchman in a Ferrari following the total breakdown of their relationship as team-mates at McLaren in 1989.
But the 1990 Italian Grand Prix is remembered instead for a monumental accident involving Derek Warwick's Lotus on the first lap.
The Englishman ran wide coming out of the fast and tricky Parabolica corner and he slammed into the barriers on the outside of the track. The car overturned, and slid down the middle of the circuit, coming to rest at the entry to the main straight.
It looked horrendous - in those days of low-sided cockpits, Warwick's helmet scraped along the ground - but he climbed out and, after a little unsteadiness, ran back to the pits to take the restart in the spare car. Cue more wild cheers from the tifosi, who applauded Warwick all the way back to his garage.
The 1995 race featured one of a series of incidents that year between title contenders Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill.
Two weeks after Hill had been unhappy about, and humiliated by, Schumacher's brilliant drive in the wet at Spa, the feature race in the last edition of our classic races series, the two men were again disputing the lead halfway through the race at Monza.
Approaching the second chicane, they were coming up to lap backmarker Taki Inoue's Footwork. Hill's Williams cannoned into the back of the Benetton, and took them both out of the race. Schumacher, incensed, leapt from his beached car in the gravel trap and ran over to Hill to remonstrate with him, but was pulled away by marshals.
On the track, though, the drama was far from over. The collision left the Ferraris running one-two with Jean Alesi leading Berger. Alesi, who had taken his first career victory earlier that season in Canada, looked all set for what would have been a highly emotional win, but it was not to be.
First, a camera fell off his car and smashed Berger's suspension, taking him out of the race. Then, with seven laps to go, Alesi suffered a rear wheel-bearing failure and he, too, had to retire, handing a second victory of the season instead to Schumacher's team-mate Johnny Herbert.
Four years later, Monza was again host to incredible scenes. Northern Irishman Eddie Irvine had taken over as Ferrari's talisman in the title fight with McLaren's Mika Hakkinen after Schumacher broke his leg in a crash at the British Grand Prix.
Irvine should not really have had a chance - he was far slower than Hakkinen - but a combination of errors and failures at McLaren and kept the championship open. The Finn had a great chance to extend his lead at Monza, where he was leading - albeit under some pressure from the Jordan of Heinz-Harald Frentzen - with Irvine off the pace and struggling.
But then, when he seemed to be counting down the laps to a win that would have put him in a very strong position in the championship with just three races to go, Hakkinen made a mistake and spun into retirement at the first chicane.
He climbed out of the car and threw his gloves down in frustration. Then, walking back to the pits, when he thought he was out of sight of the TV cameras, he sat down and had a little cry.
Our final selection is the 2004 race. It was the eighth Ferrari one-two in a season when the Italian team's Schumacher-era domination was at its height, but this one was different.
Not only was it Rubens Barrichello who was the first red car across the line, but the two men had to fight through the field from the back in the wet after early delays - Barrichello for choosing the wrong tyres and Schumacher from spinning on the first lap. The result may have served only to emphasise the car's superiority, but it was fun watching it.
So there you have it - five great races to choose from. As ever, we would like you to tell us which one is your favourite, and also if there are any great Italian Grands Prix we have omitted from our list. We will use your responses to inform our decision about which race to highlight on the BBC Sport website - and if that event is from the years for which the BBC owned the F1 rights (ie, before 1997) we will show the full 'Grand Prix' highlights programme of the time, as well as the short highlights of all the races.
