VOTE: Which classic race would you like to rewatch live?

As part of the 1000th Grand Prix celebrations this weekend, Formula 1 is going to be putting on a replay of a classic race. Either Spain 1981, Brazil 1991 or Spain 1996 will get shown, but it's up to you to decide on the tweet below!

Formula 1 replayed the classic 2008 world championship decider in Brazil last season and they look to do it again as the sport hits a major milestone this weekend.

Spain 1981

This race includes the likes of Keke Rosberg, Gilles Villeneuve and Jacques Laffite. The 80 lap marathon took place on a hot sunny day around Circuito Permanente Del Jarama. It's known as the second closest finish in Formula 1 history with four cars within 1.24 seconds of the race winner.

Brazil 1991

After eight years in Formula 1, Ayrton Senna finally won his first ever home Grand Prix and fought off a charging Nigel Mansell in the process. Mansell lost the race in the pitlane, but Senna still had work to do. He won by just over 2 seconds ahead of Riccardo Patrese.

Spain 1996

To watch Michael Schumacher's first ever win in Ferrari colours, vote for this one. It's also known as one of his finest wins in Formula 1 as he demonstrated why he was so good in the rain. This race features so many big names, there's too many to mention!
