I hope you hadn’t miss yesterday’s Brazilian F1 GP race (last race of the season) because it was simply brilliant. I came into this race without any high hopes on Kimi because for him to win the drivers’ championship is a difficult thing to do, almost impossible. Would you expect Lewis to finish less than 6th and Alonso less than 2nd? But as the race progresses, Kimi’s chance of winning the title look brighter and brighter. No way can someone write a better script than God himself.
The 3-ways championship fight was still undecided when Kimi passed the chequered flag, not until all the remaining 7 cars have passed the finish line because you never know… anything can still happen. Kubica and Heidfeld was still racing neck and neck towards the chequered flag… aiyo it was finger-biting and heart-throbbing. I just pray they don’t take each other out and hand the drivers’ title back to Lewis.
How the Brazilian race ended:
1. Kimi Raikkonen
2. Felipe Massa
3. Fenanando Alonso
4. Nico Rosberg
5. Robert Kubica
6. Nick Heidfeld
7. Lewis Hamilton
8. Jarno Trulli
Congratulations Kimi Raikkonen for winning your first World Championship Drivers’ Title with Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro!
To make matter more interesting, Kimi won the title by just 1 point. Woah how close can you get man? TOTALLY UNBELIEVABLE!
Top 3 drivers’ standings:
1. Kimi Raikkonen 110pts (2007 F1 World Champion)
2. Lewis Hamilton 109pts
3. Fernando Alonso 109pts
Lewis is the runner-up because both he and Alonso had 4 wins each but Lewis had more 2nd place wins than Alonso.
This is definitely a bittersweet F1 season for everyone including you and me. Can I say this is the best F1 race season ever? I say YES! Thank God Michael Schumacher retired.
Most important of all I want to thanks Alonso for vigorously holding off Lewis at the first lap and I want to thanks Lewis’ car for making up some cranky gearshift problem. You know? For a moment I thought Alonso’s engineers has something to do with Lewis’ car.
What Steve Slater said is correct, in Ferrari there is team work. Team work that brought Kimi Raikkonen to winning his first title. It was Massa who blocked Lewis at the start of the race. *tsk why is always a Brazilian made a guinea pig? first it’s Rubens now Massa.* But of course this time Kimi wins the title fair and square.
What can you see in McLaren? Chaos, clash, disagreement, spying…
Ohh I can’t wait for next season. Patiently counting the days…
