Brazilian Grand Prix 2013. This is the final grand prix of the year. This is your final chance to boo Sebastian Vettel in 2013. More importantly, this could be the occasion you can applaud and honour the young German.
Detractors keep saying their excuses. The truth remains is that you cannot win Formula One crown with three races to spare, unless you are a legend.
Welcome to Brazilian Grand Prix 2013. The race will mark the end of an utterly predictable – some would say boring – F1 season. Vettel, with his terrific Red Bull car, dominated the season as if he is Formula One’s Genghis Khan. Can he finish with a win?
Who will win at Brazil
His record in Brazil is not that impressive. He has won here only once – in 2010. His teammate Mark Webber has won here twice. If you are an emotional person, you would want Webber to win his third race at the Interlagos circuit in Sao Polo. He is going to bid adieu to F1 after this race.
The crowd will support the local boy and now a sentimental favourite Felipe Massa. He will be leaving Ferrari after this race. His racing career in itself is marred by question marks over form and temperament. For a boy who was groomed to become the next Ayrton Senna, this is like a premature end to a budding career.
Two modern-day stalwarts – Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso – have never won at Interlagos. Perhaps they do not like the high altitude at Sao Polo and the surroundings that comprise many residential buildings and even slums.
For Vettel, though, it will be yet another season well completed regardless of whether he wins Brazilian Grand Prix 2013 or not.
