Wow! What a race!

Post by darwin dali »

Fantabulous drive by the master. The championships seem to go down to the wire in the last two races. Too bad FM couldn't do better.
What was going on with FA during his second stint?

Ah, just heard FA saying the new front intermediates he put on needed to wear down for the first 7 laps out or so because of the track conditions. That's why he was that much off the pace while MS and GF had left on their tires, which had turned into almost slicks.

That was pretty awesome, didn't Schu look happy!?

That was a race he really shouldn't have won. I'm very pleased for him, I have mixed feelings about one tyre supplier, and we almost lost a thrilling end to the 2007 championship due to Bridgestones failure to provide a suitable, tried and tested intermediate tyre.

Highlight for me, other than Kimi having another typical McLaren race of success then failure, was the second from last corner. Didn't it go Heidfeld fourth, Barrichello, Button and Del La Rosa, then by the finish it was Button, Del La Rosa, Barrichello minus bodywork, and then Heidfeld. :D

Final two races are going to be interesting, one win each and Schumacher will take his eighth title! :shock:

It's all setup for a really exciting final 2 races :)

If they both finish on equal points (I know that's not all that likely!), will Schumi take the title because he's won one more race, or will they both be declared champion?

Even if they had the same number of wins, it would go down to how many second places and so on. There won't be two champions...

Suzuka has been good for MS and he likes that circuit, it suits him well. Unless rain or other calamities strike, this should be his to win.
Interlagos? A toss up in my book. You never know when those advertisement signs come flying down - lol! Maybe it'll be time for FM's second victory - on home soil at that...
