  1. I wish this race is as good as last year’s.It would be good if Lewis takes Jenson out early and vettel leads Barichello 1-2 and Alonso taking 3rd , Kimi 4th and in this way Ferrari ll beat Mclaren in the cnstructors’ championship. :)

    1. I’d like that if you swapped barrichello with vettel. After 17 years of being in f1 i think rubens deserves a win in his home gp. There would still be a good 3way battle in abu dhabi.

  2. Last year’s may have been historic and absolutely mind boggling but I wanted describe it as good-more a form of torture :(
    Thanks for the guide, love the 1988 review too.

    1. Me too, I just watched the highlights of last year on the BBC website and even though I knew what was going to happen it still had me going!

      1. lol Dan you support Massa or Hamilton?

  3. I can already see an accident in the first 2 turns caused by a kers car

  4. can’t do last year again. i think jenson will wrap this old WDC thing up this weekend. ….

    THIS SHOULD BE THE LAST GP OF THE YEAR!!!! BLOODY DESERT MONEY HAS RUINED THE F1 CALANDER.

    that’s my loud protest over. keith, great piece again..thank you

  5. I’ll be attending this weekend Brazilian Grand Prix! I’ll try to get some good pictures from where I’m sitting (A sector grandstands, by the beggining of the main straight), and I’ll also be updating twitter (@marckanno) with interesting stuff straight from Interlagos, starting Friday at FP2!

  6. It looks more likely that the title will be decided at Brazil for the fifth year in a row, than going to the final round for the fourth year in a row.

  7. @David A eh??

    Yeah i agree Brazil should be the last track on the calendar, but i think abu dabi has been placed last to give them more time to finish the track. Next year Brazil is returning to its normal slot I believe???
