This weekend sees the final Grand Prix of a quite thrilling Formula 1 season take place from Brazil and unlike some years – there is a lot of stake in this finale of the campaign. At times, the Brazilian Grand Prix has been somewhat of a parade for the already crowned World Champion, but this weekend Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso will be battling it out for the title.
Vettel is the man with one hand on the trophy right now as he is 13 points clear of his Spanish rival and knows that if he finishes in at least fourth position, then he will claim his third title in a row. It is likely that the German will just try and keep Alonso in his sights and make sure there is not a big gap between the two of them.
The Spaniard has been consistent throughout the campaign and now knows he has to produce something special in Brazil. It is not in his own hands though as he could even win the Grand Prix by an absolute mile, but if Vettel takes at more than 12 points – it will count for nothing.
All eyes will be on these two this weekend any everybody will be watching just how they go about their business from the first practice session right until the race itself. With how this Grand Prix has gone in the past, you have to fancy Red Bull claiming another title as they have won on this circuit in the last three years as Mark Webber was winner in 2009 and 2011, with Vettel coming out on top in 2010.
One man who can still have a big say on where the trophy does end up is Lewis Hamilton. The Englishman will race in a McLaren car for the final time and after his win in Austin, Texas last weekend – will be extremely confident of a win here.
Alonso is sure to hope his former teammate can do him a favour and be one of a few drivers sandwiched between himself and Vettel. In this fantastic Formula 1 season, anything can happen and one final shock could be on cards.
The crowds in Brazil will be hoping to see something special over the weekend and are likely to be cheering Alonso on to go and win his first Drivers Championship since 2006.
It should be a fitting way to end this campaign that will go down as one of the best in recent years.
