adding to the bumps and elevations is one more challenge , this is one of the few anticlockwise circuits in the calender.
I love the elevation changes in this circuit! Should make for a interesting battle . And if it rains it would get very interesting due to the elevation changes as certain sections would be flooded while the other sections would be dry!

Yup! that was one heck of a rollercoaster race! The was infact the first ever F1 race i ever watched so one hell of a first impression of F1.So many crashes , so many retirements by the drivers from P1 position and in the end it was Fischella of Jordan racing who won( the current force india team ) !

Ah Brazil, the circuit that can make or break the championship.
The most entertaining and unpredictable circuit on the calender. We have all seen some of the biggest upsets this circuit has offered over the years. I bet there will be no difference this year.
The rain can add to the fun at Interlagos.
Ferrari has a slight edge at Brazil with Alonso leading the championship and his team mate Massa who has a good record at Brazil, his home event.
But nothing is written in concrete until the final lap and the chequered flag is taken. We may be in for some surprises this year.

The Brazilian GP has always been an interesting and action packed GP.
Be it the 2001 GP or the 2003 rain marked chaotic GP to the 2008 GP where Hamilton won, this GP has produced some entertainment and in the recent past a few titles have been decided here. If Alonso wins this one then he is the World Champion 2010. Lets see if the title is decided at Interlagos this time around too.

As per the weathermen we are in for some rain at the Interlagos circuit for this race as well. Source - | Brazilian Grand Prix | Formula 1 news, live F1 | ESPN F1

Luckily the heavy rain is forecast on sat, not as much on sun

With rain comes havoc & drama.. especially at Interlagos!
we have seen events for which scripts could not have been written!!

I would love it normally.. but with 2 races to go i hope the WDC doesnt turn into a lottery
Though.. it does separate the men from the boys often enough (Web vs Vett/FA)

Time to see how Ferrari will play, If Massa is 1st and Alonso is 2nd will there be team orders to let alonso pass so that he can seal the championship? Bhipan's your views on this.

Ferrari were implementing team orders in the middle of the championship, so 200% sure they will do it again if the need arises in such a crucial moment in the championship during the brazilian gp! and to be honest it would be stupid of ferrari not to. The drivers championship is at stake here.

Hopefully this time round, they wont make it as obvious as last time.

A preview of conversation in brazil

Massa (leading the race with alonso in 2nd) "i seem to have a problem with the throttle"

pit crew "ok we will check the telemetry here in the mean time alonso is closing with the red bulls right behind him so let him pass"

Massa " ok ok, the power delivery is very inconsistent"

(massa lets alonso pass)

Massa " Oh the throttle response is improving, i should be able to finish the race"

So it has happened. Redbull had a bad weekend and Alonso made the best of it. Now to top it all, rain is expected this weekend. If Massa can get anywhere near pole, then he might look to help Alonso garner more points than his rivals.

Alonso on the other hand, would be happy to let Massa win as long as he finishes second. This man is a master accumulator who has perfected the art of doing just enough with a good/fast, if not great/fastest car.

It is about time Redbull decides who they are backing for the driver's championship. They need definite goals for the next 2 races and this requires clarity of purpose, which they lack right now.

The drivers to watch out for in the last 2 races? The Mclarens. They have nothing to lose now, so expect them to go flat out. And that is what Lewis Hamilton does best.

Bring on the Samba!

I have a feeling that as usual Interlagos will churn up something spicy for us and we might see someone unexpected taking the chequered flag. This is one superb decider track in the f1 calendar.
