same with ITV. Their last race of 206 races covering the sport

15:37 The parade of drivers continues with the open top truck rounding the 2.677 mile Interlagos circuit to huge cheers.

Just before the parade, traditional end of term drivers' photograph took place on the start-finish line, with the large enthusiastic crowd in the grandstand cheering their heroes.

The most noise is of course reserved for local boy Felipe Massa. It is a fervent atmosphere down on the grid and if the two championship protagonists were not nervous before, they will be now as the start time gets closer.

Following the photo with all the drivers together, Massa and Hamilton were pictured together smiling ahead of their battle this afternoon.

Both Ferrari engines will have technical problems. Alonso will have a puncture Coulthard will win because somebody put a very large bet to go his his charity Hamilton will win the World Championship and Berny Ecclestone will get his hair cut.

That's a prediction I saw by someone on the BBC website.

McLaren has invested $7 million on checking the car, every part has been looked at... I just hope they did it not for nothing...

Gordon Brown, who's sent Hamilton a good luck message all the way from Saudi Arabia.

"Lewis Hamilton is a hero to so many young people in Britain," he said from his diplomatic tour of the Middle East. "I think he will be a great world champion. He just missed out last year. I think everybody will be rooting for him today."

still dry, heavy rain expected

1536: "I'm in the paddock right now and there is a big pile of tyres with extra wets written on them so if the rain comes the teams will be extra prepared. It's not raining at the moment though - it's pretty sunny in fact."

Gordon Brown-Trying to get people to take their attention away from the economy,the tosser (Excuse my left-wing beliefs).I'm starting to think the rain ain't coming,and we'll get a clean,dry race,which is the fairest way to decide the championship.

15:43 The drivers parade has concluded, and the crowd - already whipped up into a frenzy by the appearrance of the drivers - went wild as Jarno Trulli and Felipe Massa waved to them with Brazilian flags.
