Things looked badly for Lewis Hamilton after he spun in the early stages of the Istanbul GP2 race in 2006, but from P18, Hamilton manoeuvred his way all the way back to P2 with some breathtaking racing. Watch the battle between him, then championship leader Nelson Piquet Junior and Timo Glock, which starts around the 5:20 mark. Incredible racing! By the way, all GP2 cars are the same engine-wise, which makes the comeback even more impressive.
