Vettel leads Red Bull Racing one-two in Brazil

Sebastian Vettel took his fourth victory of the season at Interlagos leading home team-mate Mark Webber to earn Red Bull Racing their first-ever constructors’ title.

By winning in Brazil, Vettel ensured that a three-way title fight will go to Abu Dhabi next Sunday after beating his Red Bull team-mate and Ferrari rival to race victory.

The German took the lead into the Senna S on the opening lap, easily passing the Williams of Nico Hülkenberg who started in pole position.

From that point onwards, Vettel drove a perfect race to take the chequered flag in style. The focus will now shift to the drivers’ championship as the Milton Keynes-based team celebrated their first constructors’ title thanks to a one-two finish.

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished in third and he still leads the drivers’ championship with an eight-point advantage with one race remaining.

As for Lewis Hamilton, he is still within the title battle with a fourth place finish and yet the McLaren driver complained all race about a lack of grip which made it difficult for him to challenge.

Team-mate Jenson Button finished in fifth position but is now out of the running in this season’s championship battle.

The Silver Arrows came home in sixth and seventh with Nico Rosberg ahead of Michael Schumacher. The latter was the last driver to finish on the lead lap.

Qualifying hero Nico Hülkenberg took eighth for Williams after starting the Brazilian Grand Prix in pole position. The young German drove a solid race resisting heavy pressure from Lewis Hamilton and by scoring four points, The Hulk is helping out his Williams team in the constructors’ standings. Hopefully his performance in Brazil will earn the Formula One rookie a seat on the grid next season.

Renault’s Robert Kubica took ninth while Kamui Kobayashi claimed the final point for Sauber after a fraught race-long scrap for the position that involved Jaime Alguersuari, Adrian Sutil, Sebastien Buemi and Rubens Barrichello at various stages of the race.

Felipe Massa ended up P14, his already poor race ruined early on when he had to stop twice due a problem with a wheel-nut on the right front. As for Rubens Barrichello, his bad luck at Interlagos continued as he suffered a puncture while battling with Alguersuari. The Brazilian finished in P16.

In the battle of the new teams, Heikki Kovalainen claimed the honours for Lotus, leading team-mate Trulli to the flag well clear of Virgin Racing’s Timo Glock and HRT’s Bruno Senna.

So the drivers’ championship now goes down to the wire in Abu Dhabi, with Fernando Alonso leading the standings with eight points over Mark Webber and 15 points compared to race winner Sebastian Vettel. For Lewis Hamilton, he is 24 points behind and has admitted he needs a miracle to claim the title.

12 thoughts to “Vettel leads Red Bull Racing one-two in Brazil”

  1. By finishing in first and second, the Milton Keynes-based team have won their first constructors’ title. has the story.

    Red Bull Racing has clinched the constructors’ world championship following a dominant 1-2 finish in the Brazilian Grand Prix.

    Although the fight for the drivers’ crown remains open until the season finale in Abu Dhabi next weekend, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s performance in Brazil was enough for it to be assured of its maiden team title.

    With nearest challenger McLaren unable to secure the result it needed to keep itself in the constructors’ crown, Red Bull Racing cannot now be beaten to the constructors’ crown.

    Red Bull Racing’s title success comes after a season in which there is little doubt it has had the quickest car. Vettel and Webber have taken 14 out of a possible 18 pole positions and won seven grands prix.

    Team principal Christian Horner said before the Interlagos weekend that although the Constructors’ Championship did not carry the prestige of the drivers’ crown, it was still a great honour for his outfit.

    “Inevitably for the team the constructors’ is where they are measured against their peers in the pit lane,” he said. “From the team point of view the constructors’ is the one that is held most closely to people’s hearts.

    “To the public, the drivers’ is what has the most prestige attached to it. In different ways within the team they have an equal value.”

  2. Red Bull’s chief technical officer Adrian Newey says it feels amazing to have played a part in the team’s first constructors’ championship, but admitted that doubts had begun to creep in when it failed to score in Korea.

    Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber completed a 1-2 finish in Brazil to secure the teams’ championship, 48 points clear of its nearest rivals McLaren.

    “We had a good car last year but we weren’t quite quick enough with the double diffuser at the beginning of the year,” explained Newey. “This year has been the car has been quick but we have had a lot of problems, be it mechanical or whatever.

    “We have thrown away a lot of points. I kind of started to lose confidence after Korea, which has to be one of my all time worst races.”

    But Newey, whose cars won titles with Williams and McLaren over the past two decades, said that winning a title with Red Bull having been so instrumental to the team’s rise to prominence was particularly satisfying.

    “This is amazing, to have done it with this team,” he said. “To be with it from near the start and for us to have jointly built the team up to win the Constructors’ Championship is a fantastic achievement for all the team in Milton Keynes.

    “It was obviously the aspiration [to win the championship] but I wasn’t so sure we could actually achieve it [when I joined]. Certainly the team didn’t have the infrastructure of the big ones. When I joined Williams, and then McLaren, I was very lucky the teams had the infrastructure and you could just go about designing the car.

    “Here it’s been a bigger task, building everything up, getting the operation together and everybody in Milton Keynes has risen to that task fantastically.

    “Peter Prodromou and Rob Marshall need a special thanks for their efforts as head aerodynamicist and chief designer. They have made an enormous contribution to the car. But it is getting everybody to gel, and it sounds corny, but it is about getting the team to work as a cohesive unit.”


  3. For the race winner Sebastian Vettel, this was a great result for the team and the German still believes he can win the drivers’ title. has the story below.

    Sebastian Vettel says he remains optimistic that he can clinch the drivers’ title after winning the Brazilian Grand Prix.

    The Red Bull driver took his fourth win of the 2010 season at Interlagos, leading team-mate Mark Webber to another one-two for his team.

    The result left Webber eight points behind championship leader Fernando Alonso, with Vettel still 16 behind the Spaniard.

    Alonso need second place in Abu Dhabi to secure the title, or third if Vettel wins and Webber is second.

    Despite the gap to Alonso, Vettel believes the title is still possible.

    “I think so. If it was 26 it would be impossible, but 16 is possible,” said Vettel. “I don’t wish anything bad for him [Alonso] but I wouldn’t be sad to see some Ferrari smoke.

    “We are racing and pushing ourselves to the limit, I have to focus on myself, get the best out of the car, and try to repeat and try to win the race there and then we see where he is finishing or probably not In a week’s time we will know.”

    Today’s result clinched the constructors’ championship for Red Bull Racing, the first for the Milton Keynes team.

    “I think it’s an incredible day,” Vettel added. “Pretty incredible.”

  4. Mark Webber has admitted that it would have been ‘a help’ if Red Bull had employed team orders to boost his championship position in the Brazilian Grand Prix, but said he accepts his squad’s policy and is not expecting any extra assistance in Abu Dhabi next weekend.

    Sebastian Vettel led Webber home in a Red Bull one-two in Brazil, securing the constructors’ championship for the team. But the result put Webber eight points behind leader Fernando Alonso in the drivers’ standings, whereas the gap would have only been one point had Red Bull reversed its drivers’ position – though that would have all but ended Vettel’s title hopes.

    When asked if the team should have swapped the order of its cars today, Webber replied: “It helps but it’s not the team’s philosophy. It was a good drive by Seb today for the win and that is how it is.

    “The team is going for the position it has always done on the sporting side and that is how it is.

    “Fernando got some points at Hockenheim [via team orders], which happened in the past and will happen in the future.

    “Everyone has different ideas and that is how it is. I still have a good chance and will go to Abu Dhabi and do my best.”

    Asked whether he expected Vettel to move aside for him in Abu Dhabi, Webber said: “Depends how it is on the last lap.”

    The Australian reckoned qualifying behind Vettel and failing to jump him at the start had decided the result today.

    “Most of the races were decided on Saturday or the first lap,” Webber said. “We follow each other, in old days you could play strategy and go longer or shorter, but that is not how it is [now].”

    He also pointed out that an issue with high engine temperatures had forced him to nurse his car for much of the distance.

    “We had to manage a few problems during the second part of race,” said Webber. “A very, very hot engine for some reason so we had to turn it down quite a lot, and just focus on keeping Fernando out.”

    Webber added that he was delighted that the team – which he originally drove for in its Jaguar incarnation in 2003/04 before returning to it under the Red Bull name in 2007 – had wrapped up the constructors’ title.

    “I am absolutely stoked for the guys and girls,” he said. “I’ve known a lot of them in Milton Keynes for a long time. They’re part of an amazing effort and to get the constructors’ title is a phenomenal effort for them, all the guys who have put them in there racing Ferrari and McLaren.

    “We’ve beaten them fair and square. It is a very good achievement for the team.”


  5. After finishing in third Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso believes he still has a chance in winning the drivers’ title in Abu Dhabi next Sunday. has the details below:

    Fernando Alonso feels he is still in for a ‘stressful’ weekend in Abu Dhabi despite minimising the damage to his world championship lead by finishing only one place behind Mark Webber in Brazil.

    Red Bull dominated the Interlagos race, but Alonso’s third place behind Sebastian Vettel and Webber means the Australian remains eight points behind the Spaniard going into the Yas Marina event. Vettel’s victory brings him to within 15 points of Alonso.

    Although that result gives Alonso a little breathing space for the finale, he reckons the title fight is wide open.

    “I need second place if Mark wins to be champion, a fifth if Seb wins so we see what happens,” said Alonso.

    “We saw today very easily how things can change, with safety cars, some things change and others not. If you make the wrong decision at the wrong moment you can be eighth or ninth and the title can be over.

    “It is going to be a stressful weekend for all of us, but this is F1 and anything can happen next weekend. We all start from zero and we’ll see who does a better job in seven days’ time.”

    Alonso felt he might have been able to stay with the Red Bulls in Brazil had he not lost time overtaking Lewis Hamilton and Nico Hulkenberg during the opening laps of the race.

    “I think we lost in the first laps of the race trying to overtaking Hamilton and Hulkenberg,” said the Ferrari driver. “Those 10-12 seconds we lost were impossible to catch, we were maybe one-two tenths faster some laps so when you lose 12 seconds it is over.

    “We had a chance when the safety car was out but we found ourselves in the wrong position with so many [lapped] cars between Mark and us, to pass these seven cars the gap was six, seven seconds.

    “Overall it was a good race for us – being on the podium, overtaking Hamilton and Hulkenberg… We knew it was not an easy thing to do but in terms of points we are extremely happy.”

  6. As for Lewis Hamilton, the McLaren driver has admitted he needs a miracle in order to beat the Red Bulls and Alonso to the drivers’ championship. has the story.

    Lewis Hamilton admits he will need a miracle to win the world championship in Abu Dhabi, going into the race 24 points behind Fernando Alonso with just 25 available.

    After his fourth place at Interlagos today, the Briton also trails Mark Webber by 16 points and Sebastian Vettel by nine, so he will need a victory and for misfortune to strike all three next weekend.

    “We weren’t quick enough here and we won’t be quick enough in Abu Dhabi,” Hamilton said. “Realistically, we need a miracle. But I’ll keep trying, we have nothing to lose now.”

    Hamilton complained of struggling for grip throughout the Brazilian Grand Prix and afterwards said he was fortunate to finish as high as fourth.

    “It was a tough race, the car was nowhere, I had no grip,” he said. “I feel quite lucky to have finished where I finished.

    “The car didn’t feel like it did in practice, down the straights particularly. I didn’t think the F-duct was working because I was struggling to overtake backmarkers and Fernando shot by on the straight.

    “But the team did a great job with the strategy, you just can’t win with a car that’s not quick enough.”

    Team-mate Jenson Button declared himself happy with his drive up from 11th on the grid to finish fifth.

    “It was down to the team making the right call on pitstop strategy, and to finish behind my team-mate is not so bad.

    “We just have to build on this for next year, I don’t think there’s a team out there stronger than us.”

  7. Sebastian Vettel stopped short from confirming he will help team-mate Mark Webber in Abu Dhabi if the Australian needs it to clinch the title.

    Vettel won the Brazilian GP from Webber on Sunday to move to within 16 points of championship leader Fernando Alonso with just one race left.

    Red Bull has so far refused to throw its weight on one driver, as shown again today. Had he won, Webber – eight points behind Alonso – would have been just one point behind the Spaniard.

    Today’s result means Alonso can secure the title by finishing second in Abu Dhabi, or third if Vettel wins from Webber.

    The German, however, was coy when asked about helping Webber.

    “I am not sure if I got your question,” he said when asked if he would give way to Webber if Alonso was running in third in Abu Dhabi. “It is pretty straightforward: in less than a week’s time we unpack the cars and prepare for Abu Dhabi.

    “We have to see if we are competitive. Then we will see where we are in qualifying, we try to get everything out of the car and then see where we are.

    “Obviously in my case it is pretty straightforward. I can try to optimise my result, get everything out my myself and repeat the result of today and then it depends on where those guys are.

    “For sure you will have to judge according to the situation. One thing is clear, I think both of us know how to act, there are moments which were probably not representable and we probably don’t want to repeat.”

    When asked to give yes or no, answer, he said: “I think you will see then. I went to school obviously so I know what I can answer and there was a lot of talk before this race.

    “In the end the way the race unfolded it was all unnecessary. For me it is straightforward: I go to Abu Dhabi to try to do my best. We have a strong car.

    “I can only tell you about the scenario you are talking about and it is something you will think of. As a kid I never liked it when my parents teased me when they wouldn’t answer my question so now I am in a position to tease you for your questions.”


  8. For Nico Hulkenberg, who started the Brazilian Grand Prix on pole position, finishing in eighth was the highlight. has the details.

    Nico Hulkenberg declared himself happy with his eight-place finish at the Brazilian Grand Prix, despite having started from pole position.

    The Williams driver clinched a shock maiden pole on Saturday, but was unable to stay with the leaders in the race, dropping down the order quickly.

    Hulkenberg said, however, that he had given it all, and was pleased with the result.

    “I am happy with that result because I gave it everything today; there wasn’t anything left in me to give,” said Hulkenberg. “I was struggling quite a lot with the car, it really wasn’t easy to drive, but I kept Kubica behind me all the way.

    “The team did a great pitstop and chose the right strategy; we just needed some more car pace. Even though we started on pole, my expectations for the race were to finish between fifth and tenth, so P8 is fine and it means we are now sixth in the Constructors’ Championship.”

    Team-mate Rubens Barrichello had to settle for 16th position after a troubled race which included a puncture and a slow pitstop.

    “We had a faulty pitstop today which we need to investigate,” he said. “I was happy with my pace though. Unfortunately, after one of my overtaking attempts on Alguersuari, he ran over me which destroyed my front tyre so I had to come in again.

    “I just came in too many times to score points. I’m sorry for all the Brazilians who came here wanting a different result. All I can say is that I gave it my all until the very end.”

  9. Red Bull Racing will leave any decision on team orders wholly up to its drivers in the Abu Dhabi season finale, with the management convinced Sebastian Vettel will do the right thing off his own back if needed.

    The Milton Keynes-based outfit has refused to throw its weight behind its leading driver Mark Webber in the closing stages of the season, which has left both him and Vettel in contention for the crown at the final race of the season.

    Red Bull Racing’s tactics have, however, left the team in a situation where if Vettel leads Webber home at the Yas Marina circuit – with main rival Fernando Alonso third – then the title will go to the Ferrari driver.

    That means the team could be put in a situation where the only way it can guarantee itself the drivers’ crown as well as its constructors’ title is to get Vettel to sacrifice the lead to his team-mate.

    Vettel himself drew short of confirming he would concede the win if required when asked by the media after the Brazilian Grand Prix, while Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner made it clear the team will not issue any team orders from the pitlane either.

    “I don’t think there are any difficult decisions to be made,” Horner said about the situation. “We have two drivers that drive for the team, who have had tremendous support and equality this year. It would have been wrong to switch the drivers today, as both drivers have the chance of winning the world championship.

    “Nobody has a crystal ball, nobody can foresee what will happen next weekend and all along we have tried to do the best to support them equally. And of course if they find themselves in a situation where one, because he cannot win, needs to help the other then of course I can only imagine that they will do that. But it will have to be a driver decision.

    “You only have to look at the characters of the individuals that drive for us to recognise that they will do the best to ensure the best team results.”

    When asked if he was sure Vettel would do the right thing if required, Horner said: “Ultimately it is their decision. They both drive for the team and I know that they will both do the best that they can in that situation, should it arise, for the team. Nobody has a crystal ball and nobody can predict what will happen in a week’s time. Both drivers go into the race weekend with a genuine chance of taking the world title.”

    He added: “We will back both drivers equally and both drivers drive for the team. They will do whatever is right I am sure, at the end of the day, for the team. I have zero doubt about that. Had that situation occurred today, if Fernando had been ahead, then of course Sebastian would have done what was right for the team.

    “But that was not the situation. Both drivers have taken valuable points off Fernando today and both go into Abu Dhabi eight points and 15 respectively behind – which in today’s scoring we have seen can change quite quickly.”

    Vettel will win the championship if he wins the race in Abu Dhabi and Alonso fails to finish fourth or higher, while Webber will be champion if he wins and Alonso is no higher than third.


  10. Williams driver Nico Hulkenberg is still unsure about his future in the sport despite qualifying on pole position. has the details.

    Nico Hulkenberg is still unsure if his star performance at the Brazilian Grand Prix will make a difference to his future at the Williams team.

    The German gave the Grove team its first pole in five years after a sensational performance in mixed conditions during qualifying at Interlagos.

    He went on to finish in eighth position in the race, helping Williams overtake Force India in the standings.

    Hulkenberg, however, is still in the dark about his future, and the team is to evaluate Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado in the young driver test in Abu Dhabi.

    “I don’t know yet. You have to ask Patrick or Frank,” said Hulkenberg of his future. “I can’t tell you what they think right now. I think I have done everything right this weekend, and made the most out of my chances.

    “It was a solid performance in the race, a good one in qualifying and we will see where we end up.”

    He reckons, however, that skill should come ahead of money when it comes to choosing a driver and he feels that he and Rubens Barrichello would be a perfect line-up for Williams in 2011.

    “Obviously talent should come ahead of money in Formula 1,” he added. “But with the economy having some trouble it has become a valid point and may change some things, but I still hope that things go the right way, how they should go.

    “I think Rubens and I are the perfect driver combination and I really hope we can drive together again.”

    When asked to rate his chances of staying, he said. “I’ve no clue. I am neutral. I am right on zero right now.”

  11. Red Bull Racing technical chief Adrian Newey believes the freshness of the current iteration of Formula 1’s technical regulations was the key factor in allowing his team to emerge as the sport’s best team this year.

    With Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s 1-2 finish in the Brazilian Grand Prix securing Red Bull Racing its maiden constructors’ title, Newey has also made a bit of history himself by winning a championship with his third different team.

    But with modern F1 so competitive, Newey believes that it is the fact that F1 embraced new technical regulations two seasons ago that allowed Red Bull Racing to overcome bigger outfits like Ferrari and McLaren.

    “I think we have been fortunate in a way in that the rules are still to some extent in their infancy,” said Newey. “We are the second year into a very big set of regulation changes and with some fairly significant winter changes this year, and that helps to differentiate.

    “If you can come up with fresh ideas, new ideas that steal a march then that happens. If you get to a position where we got to at the end of 2008 where we were many years into very stable regulations then it becomes very difficult to find new avenues.”

    Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner also thinks that good teamwork at the outfit has also played its part in the success.

    “I think we have assembled a great group of guys and girls who work together so fantastically well,” said Horner. “There is a commitment and dedication that has gone in, not just this year but previous years as well under the technical leadership of Adrian. But it is not all about individuals.

    “It is about how the group has worked fantastically well collectively. Six and a half years ago Dietrich Mateschitz had a vision and today we’ve fulfilled that vision which is just an unbelievable feeling.”

    Horner also reckons that Red Bull Racing had little trouble shaking off its image as only a ‘party team’.

    “Obviously I think Red Bull, as soon as it joined F1, it brought a new energy and went about things differently in the way that we invited guests into our motorhome and the way we were involved in F1,” he said.

    “It didn’t mean that we were any less serious or committed than any other team – we were just different. And, we have built a great group as a privateer team with a customer engine, with great support from Renault and the culmination of that is this result, which is a tremendous, tremendous team effort.”

    And although Newey’s job is now done in having delivered a platform for the team to win the Constructors’ Championship, he says there remains total determination to clinch the drivers’ crown too.

    “For the team, the drivers’ championship is prestige as well as constructors’. For the drivers, I would like to see one of them win and we will do everything we can.”


  12. Well, lets face it. This race was pretty much always going to be about who needs to do what at Abu. All the sums and outcomes lead to the new ( shit ) race in the hot desert.

    This somewhat took away from the grace races that we nearly always get from Sao Paulo. TBO it wasn’t the greatest race anyways. Not much movement, with only Jenson I think making some headway, although of course at the same time, waving bye bye to his chance of becoming a back to back champion. Shocker huh?!?! Sorry Jenson, it was never going to happen, I’m sad for him as I like him very much. I also doubt, given his whole demeanor this year, he is going to be all that much gutted. Sure you hope beyond hope that you can do it two years on the trot. But I think given his pay rise ( WTF is one of those?? ), the team his with, and the potential to have a bloody good chance to do it again next year I very much doubt he is doing anything other than looking forward to the next season already. He made the right move ( with hindsight ) and every driver knows that to win the title in your 1st year with a new team is nigh on impossible. I think he is one of the greatest team players, despite not taking the “no.2 spot” till now and this his relatively non dominate performance this year, at the end of the day, he’s happy as a pig in shit.

    But onto other things.

    Vettel gets a win!! not exactly to form but of course doing so, gave the Red Bull team the constructors championship. So cue much joy and celebration for the energy drinks team. Of course the celebrations must be slightly muted due to the fact to the quick turnaround for the next race in just one week. This is a shame, as it’s always nice to see the joy and madness of a winning team when they dont have to carry one like nothing has happened. Sure they can party like hell the following the week, but it just aint the same is it?

    But again we find Red Bull refusing to 100% Webber? On record it’s ” we’re sure if needed, Seb will do the right thing” Now granted there is a chance of Seb winning, but no matter who wins if Alonso comes at least second, he wins. 3rd I think and if webber wins or 2nd, Webber gets the title. That leaves Seb with a shitty chance of doing the deed. Granted there’s qualies at Abu that could help decide who they back. But come one! A bit more thoughts and non sitting on fences for effs sake. Anyways, RB have lost a hell of a lot of respect from me, they they continue to do nothing to change that.

    God I hope beyond hope Webber wins the championship.

    But one important thing is this. Last year Brawn GP ran away in the 1st half of the season. The second half, they had to spend like hell to stay in front. This cost them dearly as we can clearly see. Red Bull in 2010 however is a different story. They’ve never really broken a sweat to stay ahead, certainly I dont think, spending more than was planned. They had the fastest car all season pretty much, and so I would assume, not at all behind on the design of next years car.

    What they do have is millions in the bank now to help fund next year. Dear God! What the hell are they going to be like!?! Adrian Newey has had nothing to do apart from concentrate on next years car. Well, apart from designing an Uber F1 car for GT5. I’d lay bet on at least two planned design folders. One with designs of cars without the constructors budget, and the other folders with those millions in mind WOW, if I were the other teams, no matter what they say on record, they are shitting themselves. I would be!

    With Lewis’ 4th, it’s an outside chance, but I aint putting a penny on him doing taking the crown. The mathematics involved are far too advance for state of drunkenness at time of writing, but it’s something like he’s gotta win with Alonso and Webber taking each other out. Not impossible of course *cough* Senna/Prost *cough*. But it’s over with. Let’s face it, the car just wasn’t good enough, and Lewis’ DNF’s cost him dear. Didn’t I say this when Webber took him out at Singapore?

    But it was a good show for Shuey at last! Erm yay? well almost. As is know, I’m not his greatest fan, but I was always excited by his return, and wanted him to do well. Let’s hope a year in with Mercedes, and much of the year concentrating on next years car, they can do better in 2011. I hope so, cos they got two great drivers, that fully deserved a better car than they got.

    But anyways, it’s all about Saturday 11th Nov. It’s such a shame it’s going to end in one of the worst tracks ever raced on in F1. Yeah even Indy was better! But it’s going to be worth a shitload to F1…..sorry, Bernie. Oh nice touch about your comments on the new teams you dwarf ridden tosser!

    It’s been one the most mixed/random/exciting seasons for along while, and one fact that was raised, is this. No-one this year has won two races in a row. NO-ONE! How frick’n bizarre is that! Crazy stuff. One thing I would like to know and this will bound to be posted on F1 fanatic after next week, is this. What would the results needed at UAE be using the old scoring. Many a time has it been said, that they’ve not actually made a fundamental difference to positions. On quick inspection, those winning 25 points seems a huge game effecting score. But half way through, I think it was said that actually the positions would more or less be then same.

    This kinda makes sense given the race winning results I touched upon earlier. Interesting to see how bigga change they have actually made.

    I’ve gone on enough anyways. Besides, apart from Jenson loosing his bid, nothing has really changed. It’s all about 4 drivers, 2 if I was pushed to say. Who’s do I think is going to take it?

    Alonso…….Shit! God I can’t believe I’m rooting for an Aussie!

    Oh and this is not the place really to mention this, but hey just like I said about the TV series Breaking Bad.

    Watch THE WALKING DEAD!!!!
