3. "Nobody believed he could have survived"

Driver: Gerard Berger
Year: 1989
Race: San Marino Grand Prix
Complex Says: There is absolutely no way Berger should have lived through this crash. As if plowing into the barriers at the '89 San Marino GP at 180 mph wasn't bad enough, his whole car then caught on fire with him still sitting in it. Amazingly, he walked away with "only" burns on his hands. Twenty years later, we bet he's still counting his blessings.
