Had to laugh at Vettel crying on comms. about the back marker issue that let Hamilton get close enough to pass.

I couldnt make out what he was saying. Is that what it was? He's such a little bitch. Hammy was faster anyway.

Still need to watch the race broadcast. My host doesn't have cable, so I either need to stream it from home or wait until I get home.

I can't believe no one has commented on Brazil yet! Exciting race. Safety car seemed like a pretty marginal call. There have been worse situations, and it completely changed the outcome of the race. The drive-through for Hulkenberg was ridiculous. If losing the rear end on a wet track into a tight corner isn't a racing incident, I don't know what is. He'd already paid the price for his mistake, and the drive-through wasn't going to fix Lewis' car and give him his place back.

Vettel has to be the luckiest sumbitch on four wheels. Unbelievable that he was able to continue after the lap 1 collision.

I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I was rooting for Alonso on Sunday. His driving was the only reason Ferrari even had a shot at the championship this year. Vettel struggled through the first half of the season when the car wasn't to his liking and was even beaten by Webber to two wins at Monaco and Silverstone. Alonso's performance this year was epic. That said, I think Massa had him beat in Brazil. Felipe's effort to let Alonso through and keep Webber behind was reminiscent of Schumi at Malaysia in 1999. Great stuff.

Finally, it was sad to see Schumi go out on such a low note. A win was too much to ask for, but a freak podium would have been great.

I caught the first 14 laps on TV but was unable to watch the rest. I took a peek at the outcome though. Now I'm looking forward to watching the race all the way through in the morning

I think Alonso was the best driver of the season (who i think deserved the title), followed closely behind by Raikonnen and Vettel. Alonso has constantly outperformed his car. I thought he was a tosser back in his Renault days but he has really matured since joining Ferrari. Raikonnen: after a couple of years away from F1, he's still got his nerves of steel, and also outperforms the car. The qualifying pace was just shocking but he's been always consistent. With Vettel, he's made the most of opportunities that have just fallen onto his lap. You gotta admit, he's nailed the conditions every time the safety car came in to play; a good combination of strategy, driving and car (i.e. Newey) has landed him his third title, not by fluke.

Vettel is from the top drawer, but Alonso is probably the guy I would put in my car if I had the choice. I say this as a huge fan of Hamilton.

I cant really stand either of them.

Vettel really is lucky beyond belief, he always seems to be. When a breakdown happens its always Webber, and he always skates thru crashes, annoying, since Hamilton always seems to be caught up in it. The luck he had starting from the pit lane...

I think I didnt comment because I hate the result of the season. Hamilton really should have won this.

All told, it was a hell of a race. Cant deny that.

I wanted Alonso to win the championship. But whoever has the most points gets it and deserves it. Great race anyway.

idfnl, I'm no fan of Alonso, but he certainly didn't cheat this year, and his driving has been fantastic.

Maybe not this year, but in the past for sure.

What exactly are you correcting? Vettel had two championships during and before the Brazilian grand prix - the times I was rooting for Alonso to beat him.
