Formula 1 Grande Prêmio Petrobras Do Brasil 2012

And again like 2007, 2008, and 2009, the Driver's Title will be decide in Brazil Interlagos.

What will happen?
Alonso come back again while Vettel have a car trouble like Hamilton did in 2007?
Or will be like 2008/2009 where Vettel on P4 even if Alonso wins. And the World Champion is NOT on the Brazil podium again?

Heard from SkySports weather predicted 40% chance of rain next week. God knows what will happen. This is exciting!!!

So glad that BBC are broadcasting the last race, really not loving the Sky F1 team. When is Georgie going to add some value!

Anyway hoping for a strong fight from Alonso and would love to see him take the race in wet conditions with Fingerboi in 5th place

'Ticking time bomb' worries Red Bull

Speaking of which, I don't recall any DNFs from Ferrari this season except Alonso being crashed out twice. They do have a reliable but not quite competitive car. This season both McLaren and Red Bull are taking turns to break down.

Quote:
Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull head into this weekend's title-deciding Brazilian GP with a "ticking time bomb" in the RB8.

The defending Champion finished second at the US GP on Sunday to take his lead in the standings over Fernando Alonso to 13 points with just the Interlagos race still to come.

However while Vettel had a trouble-free race at Austin, his bosses were left scratching their head after his team-mate Mark Webber suffered an alternator failure.

It's not the first time that the team have had such problems as Vettel also had issues with his alternator at the European and Italian Grands Prix.

With so much on the line at this weekend's Brazilian GP, Red Bull's technical chief Adrian Newey admits they are concerned.

"Reliability is a concern, it's unfortunately our third alternator failure this year which is a ticking time bomb," he told Sky Sports F1

"You never know when that one is going to strike. Renault haven't managed to find a proper solution to that one so that's a continual worry in the back of our minds as is the rest of the reliability.

"The cars are very complicated and keeping them going around is anything but guaranteed."

Meanwhile, Renault's head of trackside operations Remi Taffin has revealed that they will use a new specification alternator, which has been used by other teams that are supplied by the French manufacturer, at Interlagos.

"It is very simple. We go for the new spec. It has passed all the tests," he told Autosport

He added: "This is the first Sunday it has been used, but now we are up to 2000km on a few items with track and dyno testing, so there is nothing we would do more on this item before we fit it on the car."

So excited

Also it's going to be an emotional weekend with Hamilton leaving McLaren and Schumacher retiring for good.

I'm rooting for Alonso to take the championship. I hope Hamilton takes the win.

Next year will be interesting with Hamilton at Mercedes.

Vettel needs to experience Webber's reliability problems.
