Hard to say with the new rules, but it would be great to have Renault / Alonso back to the title fight, also a bit more courage to take risks from BMW, Kubica sure deserves it.

Kind of, kind of not. The sig will become more relevant as I post less and less through the winter. Plus I'm not a Ferrari fan. Just a Hamilton anti-fan.

As for the avatar, don't worry, that's not me.. :p Just some random pic.

One from each team -

Alonso (Renault)
Kubica (BMW)
Hamilton (McLaren)
Raikkonen (Ferrari)

would be a great battle

Brazilian GP facts and statistics -By Keith Collantine

Felipe Massa dominated in Brazil and joined three of his countrymen in becoming a two-time winner of his home Grand Prix.

Here are more facts and stats from the Brazilian Grand Prix.

First thing’s first - Lewis Hamilton won the drivers’ championship and Ferrari won the constructors’ championship. See those two articles for the full statistics on their achievements.

Ignoring the championship, Felipe Massa’s Brazilian Grand Prix was perfect. He started from pole position, set fastest lap and won the race. It is is fourth ‘hat-trick’.

Massa won his home race for the second time. It should have been his third, but he gave the lead to Kimi Raikkonen last year, allowing Raikkonen to be champion. No Brazilian has won his home race more than twice: Massa shares the record with Emerson Fittipaldi, Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna.

With David Coulthard’s retirement, Massa is the only active driver to have won his home race twice. Stirling Moss is the only other driver two have won his home race twice (or more) without winning the championship.

Massa’s 11th win gives him as many as Jacques Villeneuve, who was his team mate in 2005.

Massa’s 15th pole position means he now has one fewer than team mate Kimi Raikkonen. However Massa’s 11 fastest laps are 24 short of Raikkonen’s tally.

Raikkonen set ten fastest laps this year, matching his record of 2005, shared with Michael Schumacher in 2004. Raikkonen also finished third in the final three races.

Fernando Alonso finished on the podium without winning the race for the first time this year.

Jarno Trulli achieved his best qualifying position of the year - second - and his first front-row start since the 2005 French Grand Prix.

Alonso only off the podium (in terms of finishing in the top three) at Interlagos, twice - in 2001 and 2004

Two stupid points:

- Read some posts trashing LH father and brother, etc. I think it's stupid to criticize one's family happiness when the kid just won the WDC, or the way they were in pits for support during the hole season and getting protagonism. Even Massa had family support the hole season (or most of it). I think it's normal.

- it's reaaaaalllyyy stupid to say the title was offered by Glock to Lewis. It was obvious that Glock was really slow the hole lap but above that, the Championship wasn't just decided at this race..it's a hole season. To even say that it's a bit retarded. (NOTE: not mclaren fan. not ferrari fan)

More Points:
- Last year ferrari fans smiled, this year was mclaren's turn.

- I just hope to see a third team smile next year.

- It's just great for F1 to see this kind of close battles, and more and more teams getting to the top.

Congrats all
