Looking back at a topsy turvy season, it's really hard to predict the results of this race. However, it's most unlikely that Kimi will win the championship. Anyway, he's no good under pressure.
Hamilton can win if he doesn't make a silly mistake like he did in China.
If Alonso can keep his cool and drive like he did in 2005 and 2006, he will walk away with it. Remember, he's the only one of the three who's fought it out with a legend like Michael Schumacher and come out on top. That speaks a lot about the guy.

Massa would take pole , just to entertain Brazalian crowd. Raikonen would be 2nd or 3rd..
Then Massa would play a team job by keeping lap times in control for a heavily fueled Raikonen to keep in touch with leaders, so that he can unleash his power when competitors pit.. From them on, it will be Raikonen cruising to win..

Whatever i have read in internet sites shows that everyone other than British people wants Raikonen or Alonso to win....but whatever happens would be history.....

If Hami wins it will be a tainted championship (teams disqualified but drivers not.. sounds stupid).

But… at the moment all additions and subtractions favour a tainted championship

Most of our friends have written what they want to happen as predictions.. That is bad......
Guys Hami is not such a bad driver to come on 8th or after unless something goes wrong.. But it is racing.. anything can happen... Fingers crossed...

I would personally be happy to see a China thing happenning again but with Alonso behind Massa... He He he he....

All teams are well aware (they should be) of the regulations. A rule was broken (by 3 teams), and all 3 have been summoned. In my opinion it's a fair call.

He was let off !! So were Button and Sato(the other drivers who broke the same rule).

they were only given a 15,000 Euros fine. And they'll have to return the set of extra tyres they used.
Quote:
In an oversight which McLaren boss Ron Dennis described as “100 percent a team mistake”, Hamilton used two sets of wet-weather tyres in the damp first practice session when the sporting regulations allow each driver to use only one set.
Honda’s Jenson Button and Super Aguri’s Takuma Sato infringed the same rule, and all three drivers were summoned to the stewards’ office after practice together with representatives of their teams.
For a few agonising hours Hamilton entertained fears of a time or grid penalty, which would have had serious repercussions for his title chances.
But the stewards decided against imposing harsh penalties on the drivers, instead levying a 15,000 euro fine on each of the teams and asking them to hand back the extra set of wet-weather tyres they used on Friday to ensure they gained no advantage from having a scrubbed set at their disposal later in the weekend.

Are the rules and decision made for the sport or the money?

hehe... well said.

I guess the stewards felt that these drivers didnt really gain an advantage. I am sure if htye were convinced that they had gained an extra advantage, they would have penalised them more harshly.

But the best thing that can happen in Brazil is RAIN ... Weather forecast does show rain during the race and I hope its not the Indian Weather forecasters who made that forecast . With a 3 way end at the last GP , the rain would add another twist to it and it would really boil down to handling pressure -- !!

My mind goes back to the Hungarian GP last year ( I think ) -- it adds that extra zing for us viewers but gives the team a lot of tense moments in order to get their strategy absolutely right .

I still want Hamilton to win ....

Rules are made to keep the sport safe and fair. Unfortunately, it is in the nature of human beings to break rules.

With respect to decisions being made, a monetary penalty in motorsports is considered to be at the bottom of the rung of punishments. So hamilton and the others are lucky to have been let off the hook so cheaply. It could have been worse.
