Schumacher vs. Alesi - Amazing Battle at Nürburgring 1995 (50fps Broadcast Quality)

Personally I feel videos like this are the greatest advert for F1. Schumacher had pitted for new tyres and dropped to 22 seconds behind race leader Alesi, who was looking good for his second ever F1 win after his triumph in Canada. However, Schumacher clawed back up to the front and the dream victory was snatched from the unlucky Frenchman's hands at the last moment...I had to snip the video at one point else 'Blocked Worldwide', so please accept what I have uploaded.

05:32 almost a WTF from Murray
Pascal Herbig
0:03 - That moment when you realize that you chose the wrong car for this server.
Emil Jakobsen
V10 and v12 engines, no blue flags, no moaning or complaining from the drivers plus its 50fps.. This is perfect!!
WHAT THE..... ...struggle
I try SO hard to not complain about how terrible the current Formula 1 cars sound and to not get too nostalgic about the good old days.... then I see this video in my recommendations. **sigh

Schumacher is just another level - a real legend. Nowadays it would be "HE PUSHED ME OFF THE TRACK"
Good to hear Murray Walker again, the voice of F1.
and mick Schumacher will face Alesi Jnr in F2 in 2019!
Ahh, Shawna Lacey, John Lacey, Jean A lacy, what a great driver. Also Mika Hackin And, great driver. And Michael Shoe Market... great driver lineup. Loving this broad prix of europe
Those cars looked great and sounded great.
man, that move into the chicane was insane!
Toni Marschall
Das waren noch tolle und spannende Rennen.
Incredible time of F1 V12 V10 and V8 at the same time ... The Ferrari 412 T2 were monster loud ! Massive sound
Chris Palstra
Lovely. No blue flags. How good did that Renault engine in the Benetton sound. Fantastic. Thanks for the upload.
ah... Remember the tactics of full pit stops? Remember Schumacher 3 stopping at the Hungaroring in 98 and winning in a slower car using faster rubber, a lighter car and relentless qualifying laps? Its sad they took that away. It's a blast to re-watch Schumi pressing a tactical advantage like he used to. Such a genius.
Félix Bernier
Beautiful quality. Thanks for putting this online! And Jonathan Palmer was a great commentator though.
Man, I really miss those engines and Murray's broadcasting. This was true F1.
This was real F1 not the crap novadays
Feta Cheezz
I loved this era. Great sounding engines and wind streaks visible from rear wing.
Where did you get such high quality videos of 90s F1? This is amazing!
thomas sattler
Nice to see this window to the "good old times". Really like the sound of this cars. Thanks a lot

Get out the way Brundle
Markus Klemmer
Für das Überholmaneuver hätte er heute eine Strafe bekommen, weil er nicht genug Platz gelassen hat.
Greg Felix
I remember watching that live. I think my favourite overtake of all time. Schuey at his absolute best.
jackie boy
Ahhhhh, the good old days when nobody needed 'run-off area's'. If you messed it up you were making the long walk back to the pits in your own. Dam I miss those days 😢
Two masters of their craft at work. Walker on the mic and Schumacher on the track. Brilliant stuff.
Ah Murray Walker and those V10's, beautiful...
It is extremely rare to find F1 videos with this quality! Thank you very much!
Simon Norris
I was at that race in 19955 in the general admission area with a good view of the Veedol Chicane just off to my right. I was a great race to watch. It didn't rain at all but it was really cold there. I discovered Schnaps and Gluvine (mulled wine).
Classic racing from the best era. Fabulous engine notes. Amazing. Don't watch F1 at all now. Rubbish.

Renault benneton Michael Schumacher 👏👏👏💪💪💪💪
Vitor Amendola
"2 laps to go after this one... and Schuma... .. ... ... YEEES!"

*silence* YEEEEEESSSSSS xD (what a legend...)

When F1 was fun...
Chrissie Ayres
Amazing Drive by Michael so good in fact Murray was speechless
Who needs DRS
Dieter Gerding
Jean Alesi is a very fine Sportsmann! Fights hard, but when it’s lost, he stays fair. Not all Racers do it that way. Respect Jean!
Jon Cena
Back when F1 was actually good. No tyre management, no fuel saving etc.
Anyone notices how close Formula 1 cars could follow each others? Nothing like much aerodynamics involved..
0:03 This is amazing! The pace car retires from the lead!
Diego C.
5:46, after two cars just went off the track: "Well, I've heard of moving out of the way of the leaders, but that was pretty ridiculous!" 😆
Darryl Weathers
'Neeeeeeeeeeeoooooooowwwww!' - And Murray Walker, THE voice of Formula 1.
One of my favourite overtakes in 1080p50 😍 You see at the beginning how slippery the dirt at the chicane is when Jean puts a tyre on it after locking his rear tyres. You just don't overtake round the outside of that corner and yet Michael pulled it off despite having to use the dirt-covered part of the track. Truly incredible driving.
Casper Egas
To me the cars around this time are the most beautiful in F1 history. I wish I could watch the whole 1995 season like this!

Schumacher the Master of F1
Emmett Byrne
That Ferrari 😍
Chris A
So amazing to see with good quality video! I wonder if Bernie on his deathbed will release all that footage? No way he let Liberty get that.
if DRS existed in those days, the close fight and epic move into the chicane would never have happened. Shumacher would just sail past on the strait. DRS kills epic moves! RIP F1 Also, notice how entitled F1 drivers don't exist back then screaming blue flags.
i miss these days of v12 and v10 motors.... also seeing schumacher on the scene, speedy recovery micheal :)
leandro garcia
Alesi pelo que vejo era muito fraco heim!
best UI graphics for broadcasts! F1A, bring those back, those of today are way small, way overloaded with non-relevant information... Those were the greatest by design!
Matthieu Kulezak
What the hell, safety car blowing dirt on the track??
So much better than the official F1 upload. I don't understand, why they keep cutting off the top and bottom
Yes Man
Career backmarker Martin Brundle who now loves to criticize others

Wish we get to see this sort of racing in future.
David Allen
Michael the greatest......full stop... You all know it.
McLaren had the shark fin with the T wing above. So much advanced aero for those times but unfortunatelly the Mercedes engine was too underpowered and unreliable back then. It was 1995, Mercedes just terminated their contract with Sauber (in 1994) and was the first year with McLaren. Mika Hakkinen and Mark Blundell (who replaced a fat and slow Mansel). David Coulthard will replace Mark in 1996. I remember all those races and supported Mika and McLaren like a nut, Mika still got a 2nd place at Suzuka with that car. Cheers from Romania.
Matt D
Best time ! Best circuit ! Now we got abu dhashit instead
Hello you have the race F1 Bélgica 1993?
Ian Howlett
5:34 a brilliant aborted WTF from Murray Walker! Sadly these days the car in Schumacher’s position would just breeze past with DRS, no skill needed.
I am Ferrari fan since 1992, and this ending was the most painful and disappointing experience for me. Monza 95 took a second place, Jerez 97 the third. In 95 Schumacher proved his excellence. Ferrari and Williams drivers lost so many opportunities this year...
Möppes Mös
Thanks to Michael. What a Racer.
Andrés Gutiérrez Rodríguez
Fantastic quality and great battle! Cheers from Colombia.
Hernan Vega
Thank you very much for your dedication and consideration !!
Brillant skills of both MSc and Alesi and very fair play of Alesi to not just crash into the Benetton... :D And what a beautiful car the Benetton Renault was, my gawd.
Lars Agerbæk
love the mud on the track and the sound oh god the soouuund!!!!!!!!!
Mattia Binotto
This is what f1 used to be
Man, I miss the days of Murray Walker!
Philippe Marchal
Jean j'étais au PRicard pour le volant Elf W.tu étais au dessus du lot. grand respect...!!!! et mes amitiés a P gache.
Vincent C
After the race Schumi said that he would not have tried this overtaking if it had another driver than Jean Alesi. Nice compliment ...
lvlaverick The Outsider
Wow... J'ai pas souvenir qu'on a eu cette qualité à l'époque. Quebellissimo
Andreas Aichner
in times when cars are REALLY CARS not electronic-toys like today....
Dušan Golubić
Same as Max Verstapen did on Kimi Raikonen in USA 2017, but got penalty :) (great video though, ty!)
When Brundle looked in the mirror, he was for sure like: Holy shit! Wish to be somwhere else!
Miguel Baptista
And this kid, is why your sanitized entertainment sucks nowadays. Sports, Movies, Music, you name it.
Jesse Wall
Alesi. Racing with class.
The Sincere Devil
Everytime I think of Badoer I think of his first points finish getting robbed from him because of gearbox issues :(
1:55 the Count from Sesame Street: 62, 63, 64 ... 3:19 the other guy can count too: 63, 64, 65 ...
*Sigh* I wish F1 cars would sound like this now.
I love how Murray freezes at 5:57 when Schumacher pulls the maneuver. It was fleeting moment brilliant enough to keep a commentator quiet for a few brief seconds.
One of my all time favourite F1 moments. I love the way Schumi hunted Alesi down and went for the win. What an overtaking move too, Murray even holds his breathe! Brilliant :)

Thanks Fastlane. I for one am grateful to be able to watch these great battles from the past again, regardless of what has to get 'snipped'. Love the picture quality too. Cheers.
overtaking without DRS = Real Racing
with DRS, Schumacher would have overtaken immediately. shows how DRS only serves to create fake overtakes.
Great video, great qualitiy.. I've been there on saturday for qualyfying day.. Thanks for the upload <3
I was there! Looking at Hatzenbach chicane and seeing the mistake of Alesi and Schumi's overtaking... all big moments happened there. It was VERY loud I tell ya. Worthwhile experience but as in other sports on TV you see more. But athmosphere is awesome.
MoMo BaBa
Schumacher to Alesi "you're in my car. Get out. I'm going to show you how to drive that dog next year"
Unforgetable! Huge like and sub!
Horst Hammer
Great video. Thx for uploading
The great!!! Only Schumacher!!!!
Great quality that's a cool video! Good times 👍
peter zebot
This is amazing quality for 4:3. It's sad to say but I enjoyed the post Senna era of racing more.
С напряжением смотрел все гонки в любое время суток и каждой своей клеткой болел за Жана ,увы фортуна и Жан явно не дружили ,с уходом Жана из Ф-1 полностью перестал смотреть гонки.

WHAT THE FU.... I mean...struggle. Yeah, what a struggle. 😂

Aaah.. Jonathan Palmer, I missed his commentary. He is the best English comentator on F1 to me. He praised the british driver when they made good job, but at the same time didn't see them with rose tinted and back off to critisize them when they made (silly) mistakes. Palmer praised Coulthard when he made a great job of leading at Spa '95 before retired from technical problem. But he didn't hesitate to made amusing comment when Coulthard made a ridicule of himself by spun at parade lap on Monza the same year. But maybe because of this trait he didn't get the invitation from ITV... Brundle had a lot of bias in his commentary, also some bitternes to certain red car and villain german. James Allen is the worst, constantly screaming like a hysterical cheerleader. Even had the guts to ridicule driver when he himself were not an ex F1 driver.
