FORMULA 1 GRANDE PREMIO DO BRASIL 2008

Filed under: F1 — by noracassandra @ 6:54 pm

Last race of the season… 71 laps… on a 4.309 km circuit… making a distance of 305.909 km… Lap Record still held by Juan Pablo Montoya with 1:11.473 in 2004.

Starting this day with full nerves… I’ve been stressing bit too long with this race… I do not want Hamilton to win and I think all the world knows that… and that means he has to finish 6th or under… it is Brazil and Massa has won the last few races here… but it’s not enough for him winning as Hamilton can be the champion if he gets 5th place!

Massa starting from pole Trulli in second and Räikkönen in third… then Hamilton in fourth…

The rain stated in 3 min before the race… and the race was dilated 10 min giving the teams enough time to change tyres… but the rain seemed to stop and the sun is out again… this will be interesting!!

As I see there is no rain expected for next 30 min, but seems the pilots will need the standard wet tyres to start with any way… and I hear the Renault telling Alonso on the radio rain is not expected for the next 40 min!

Kubica pits after the formation lap…

Lap 1; By the turn one Massa is leading, Trulli behind him, Räikkönen, Hamilton Kovalainen follows… Vettel passes Kovalainen and is in 5th… Coulthard spins and a disaster end for his last race in his carrier… safety car is in…

Lap 3; Fisichella pits… and replay for the sad end of Coulthard’s race and also a replay for Piquet walking a way and waving to the Brazilian fans…

Lap 5; safety car is off and the race is back… Kovalainen passes Alonso just to spin and for Alonso to take back his place… and Kubica with his bad luck day out of the pit in P17 after pitting for wet tyres!

Lap 6; Massa sets a new fastest lap; Heidfeld takes Barichello for P11…

Lap 8; Räikkönen running so close to Trulli… fighting for P2… Rosberg pits takes harder tyres and front wing adjustment… Button pits…

Lap 9; Bourdais, Glock, Sutil and Nakajima pit… all seems went to harder tyres…. And replay showed Rosberg and Button almost touching on the pit exit…

Lap 10; Vettel Alonso, Webber and Barichello pit this time… and extinguisher has gone off in the Honda and foam every where!!!

Lap 11; Massa pits from lead… Kovalainen pits too and so does Heidfeld… Kubica pits too… and now Trulli is leading… Hamilton, Räikkönen and Trulli all pit…

Lap 13; Hamilton passes Trulli who almost loses control off his car soon after… Trulli span and team mate Glock and Bourdais both pass him…

Lap 14; Räikkönen seems to be giving his team mate time by running a lot slower behind Alonso…

Lap 15; Hamilton seems to be in P6 wanting to pass Fisichella who himself is one of the best drivers in such mixed up conditions!!!

Lap 16; Massa is getting farther from Vettel who is second behind him… and Alonso seems to be still with the leaders!

Lap 18; Hamilton passes Fisichella in turn one… (I am not happy)…

Lap 19; Vettel sets the fastest lap and about a second behind Massa… Glock passes Fisichella and in P6… and I hear no more rain expected as Toro Rosso talks to Vettel through the radio…

Lap 20; Trulli passes Bourdais in turn one and as a result Bourdais runs wide across the grass and rejoins in P13…

Lap 22; Vettel is the fastest man on track again… Glock closing on Hamilton (go Glock go!!!)…

Lap 23; Vettel not giving up… and seems keeping up with Massa…

Lap 25; Kovalainen now in P9… and pushing on Trulli for P8…

Lap 26; the track is almost fully dry and seems no rain expected for the rest of the race!

Lap 27; Hamilton pulls away from Glock…

Lap 28; Vettel pits… Kovalainen passes Trulli and in P8… and just passes Fisichella right after and is in P7…

Lap 29; hear the Renault telling Alonso that he is racing Massa…

Lap 32; Hamilton sets the fastest lap…

Lap 33; Glock sets a new fastest lap… this race is amazing!!!

Lap 34; Button pits from P14… Massa sets the fastest lap and now 5s in front of Alonso…

Lap 37; Glock pits… and took quite a long time… over 14s… he fuelled for finish and went out on harder tyre and rejoins in P14… now got the answer on live timing the Toyota had a problem with getting the fuel hose on which delayed him slightly!

Lap 38; Ferrari ready to stop… Massa pits from lead and Alonso is leading… Massa takes 9.4s and rejoins in P4 on harder tyre… Fisichella pits and so does Bourdais…

Lap 40; McLaren is ready for stop… Alonso pits from lead Hamilton pits… gets out after an 8.9s stop…

Lap 41; Barichello pits…

Lap 42; Rosberg pits…

Lap 43; Kovalainen pits… 8.8s and harder tyres… Heidfeld pits… Räikkönen pits too…

Lap 44; Trulli pits…

Lap 45; Button passes Barichello and in P11… Sutil pits…

Lap 47; Kubica pits from P15,

Lap 52; Vettel pits from P2… quick stop 6.4s… comes out right behind Hamilton…

Lap 54; Vettel closing up to Hamilton…

Lap 56; Vettel is now 1s behind Hamilton…

Lap 58; Hamilton and Vettel have exactly the same pace now… and I hear from the BMW radio saying expected rain in 10 min…

Lap 60; Räikkönen closing up on Alonso…

Lap 62; still no sign of rain on the track… and only 1.2s now between Räikkönen and Alonso… a fight for P2 will start soon as it seems…

Lap 63; Vettel is on Hamilton’s tail… less than 1s between them…

Lap 64; reports of rain falling… Nakajima is in pit for the wet tyres…

Lap 65; Fisichella pits and takes standard wet…

Lap 66; Räikkönen is right on Alonso’s behind… Barichello and Rosberg pit… Vettel almost passes Hamilton and Kovalainen pits…

Lap 67; Webber pits, Alonso, Räikkönen are in too… Hamilton and Vettel right after…

Lap 68; Massa pits from lead and with 5.5s stop is out back in lead… Hamilton still in 5th… but will Vettel be a problem to for him?? (I HOPE SO)…

Lap 70; Hamilton in 7th… Vettel passed him… if he doesn’t get his P5 back the champion is going to Massa!!! My fingers are crossed… my heart is going to jump out off my chest… come on Vettel… that’s all I am thinking of…

Last lap; Massa!!! OH NO!!!! No…. F*^%^*$#^*… NO… Hamilton passed Glock right in the last seconds… oh no… I think I will cry… my god why!?!?! I hate this little boy and his stupid babysitter!!! Hearing Massa’s voice crying through his helmet is simple heart break!!! I don’t think I’ll be in mood for anything tonight… I’m going to bed after this! Hamilton is the champion!!! 😦

We have also a goodbye to give to David Coulthard as this has been his last race fore the F1… a long carrier of 246 races and 535 points to his name and as described the most successful pilot that never won the title!
