Amazing race! I sat down at 6:30 pm (18:30) to watch the final race of F1 this season. As soon as it was almost starting weld al-ma6aba calls to have short chat hoping for our favorite driver to win even as he said it’s been said he has 0% chance.
As soon as the lights went off and the cars started on the track Massa blocks Hamilton and gives second place to Kimi. Now it’s the 16th lap and Hamilton is fighting to get back and he does pass Nakajika on the 18th lap.
Massa keeps breaking his own fastest laps all over and over again! He really gives his country a show they deserve!
At the 20th lap Massa pits and Räikkönen records a fattest lap and takes first position just to get in and pits.
Alonso gets to pit on the 22nd, and Hamilton right after. Hamilton comes out with fuel just for 15 laps, and with supper soft tyres! It looked like they are trying to keep him light and fast and get him back soon to the pit!
On the lap 32 Nakajima pits getting a drama action in the pit. Knocking down 2 of the mechanics but both get up looking well and not injured.
Kubica passes Alonso at the 34th lap taking 3P while Hamilton passes Vettel for 10P.
Sadly my other Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen crashed his Renault at the turn three in lap 38 and was out in the final race of the season! 😦
The 50th lap Massa pits and Räikkönen leads. He pits right after at the 53rd lap but comes out in front of Massa to keep the lead while less than 20 laps left. I was hoping things stay exactly the same Kimi first Massa second Alonso 4th and Hamilton 8th! If it did Kimi will walk with the champion.
On lap 61st as the half Finn Rosberg tries to dive pass Heidfeld but as a result Kubica makes a pass leaving both of them behind taking 4th place.
On the 64th Trulli pits from P7 giving it to Hamilton. Even with the P7 Räikkönen has still the chance for the champion.
I do have to say that the race was amazing! All drivers gave a good show and tense moments! Just what person wants from the last race of the season!
As for if the race was staged or not, I do have a part of me that believes it was! As the legal probs McLaren has been facing it would have been for their best interest to give the champion to Ferrari! Do I really care? No! I am happy that my ice man is the champion for the first time!!! 😀Yes!!! Kimi Räikkönen is the 2007th F1 champion!!!! 😀
