    Hey guys,
    Looks like it was quite an eventful race !!!

    I didn't even check on the internet for the result this morning. When I went to work, my colleagues were oh so excited. They asked me "Did you see ? Did you see ?". I asked them "See what ?". "The race lah, of course...". And then it dawned to me that last night (rather this morning) was the last race of the season

    We spent the next half an hour over coffee, to go through the entire sequence of events...

    And then, I came here to read all your exciting posts.

    Hope you guys enjoyed the race. Too bad I missed it...

    I must say congrats to Hamilton. Last year when he started driving, I had commented that this guy is phenomenal and he is giving Alonso a run for his money. Soon, the c0ckiness pissed me off. Anyways, he was unlucky last year (I remember Shanghai 2007 very well...). He drove well this year but he seems to have gathered a fair share of detractors both on and off the circuit.

    Too bad, Massa ran out of luck. Too many things went wrong for him this year - including that boo boo with the fuel hose in Singapore.

    I hope Ferrari changes their lineup. This pair is depressing to me. Kimi needs to be woken up from his slumber. There seems to be no passion to win. Put some fire under this iceman.

    Lets hope for a more exciting championship in 2009. Best of luck to all of you folks. Happy for all of you.

    cos he's too arrogant. claiming that the title is "morally" his. and daring to compare himself with the racing greats. he's such a pompous a-s-s.

    Wah.....actually for most of the race, it was uneventful except for some light rain here and there. It all started with Kubica. He gave all Brazilian and Ferrari fans hope as he drove like crazy to unlap himself and it cause Ham to make a mistake and Vettel took it. The way Kubica unlap himself seem like he got a rocket strapped to his car. If he got such pace, he and BMW will be champs!

    As for Massa, his most devastating blow had to be the engine failure with only 3 laps to go at dunno which race, I forgot. That cost him 10 massive pts, which will be useful.

    Kimi really woke up when Massa needs him. Had some strong races after SGGP.

    Why would Ferrari want to blame others? They are constructors champion again!

    Why all the resentment towards Hamilton winning? He worked hard for it, yeah he was arrogant about it at times but which F1 driver isn't?

    Pork Slice deserves this fully. Remember he tried to pull the same stunt on Alonso in Fuji. Though he had nothing to gain... he still did it!!!

    Not only did Massa lose out in the points in Hungary because of engine failure, he also lose out in Singapore because of some pit-stop bungle. If not for these incidents, he would have clinched the WDC title in Shanghai.

    a nice gesture from Massa even in defeat. he's a true gentleman.

    Sport Bild reports that Massa sent his younger brother to the Toyota garage to advise team members to change out of their uniforms before leaving the circuit, located just outside sprawling Sao Paulo.

    Apparently, Toyota figures did heed the warning, returning to their hotels or to the airport wearing Brazilian national team jerseys, or spare uniforms of the Renault or Ferrari teams.

    i would say the sg race was the most devastating since it was totally avoidable. if only they had not placed blind faith in technology.

    Yep, to me Massa lost the Driver's championship not due to his lack of skills, but rather the reliabilty of the car and pit crews error. He actually drove quite brillantly this season. Of course F1 is still a team competition, so no use harping about that.

    According to today's ST, Glock was fighting to keep his car on the track on dry tyres, let alone race in the last lap. Thats why he was slow. Din say it was a fuel prob as it can't be a fuel prob as they are fueled for last the distance during the 2nd planned pit stop. The final stop the rest made was for wet tyres.

    Well thats it then, case close for me and Hamilton is champs. Massa for next season! Ferrari to go for a hattrick of constructors' title!
