Inside the Macau Grand Prix's greatest moments
Coronavirus restrictions mean this weekend's Macau GP will have a very different feel, with the usual F3 jamboree replaced by Chinese F4. But in past years, the event has provided some seminal moments in the careers of future world champions.
The Macau Grand Prix has become famed as the single most prestigious race for up-and-coming Formula 1 wannabes in the world. But, after an unbroken 37-year run as the blue-riband of Formula 3 competition from 1983-2019, this year it is contested by competitors from the Chinese Formula 4 Championship, owing to Macau's very strict quarantine measures in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
But we wanted to wallow in Macau F3 nostalgia, so we dug out a feature that ran in Autosport in November 2002 celebrating some of the more dramatic Macau GPs, and updated it with happenings from the Guia circuit over the past 17 runnings since then.
