Hamilton is on pole position for tomorrow's race...if he scores six more points than Felipe Massa, he becomes the youngest ever World Champion, with a race to spare!

I know he's made some stupid mistakes, most of them naive and "big-headed" even, but I'd love to see him enter the record books for another reason than just "the biggest flop" (17-point lead at the end of last season and still failing to win the Championship).

Stuff Lewis Hamilton! I am still crossing everything I have for Kubica to have the most amazing race ever, and it COULD happen, given that the weather forecast is changeable! xxxxx

Yes you all talk.. is anyone actually going to get up especially to watch quite possibly the title decider? I have already set my alarm for half 7 :smt047

Makes more sense than staying up until 10am I think.

I do think it's a badly organised so that the climax to the seasons races dont happen at Sunday lunchtime like the rest of the season... I think the European season should be at the end... pretty certain of rain then as well!

Well I remember back in the day, mid 1990s, coming home from Sunday lunchtime bingo with my nan, coming home to roast beef Sunday dinner, and the Formula One was always on the telly without fail in the afternoon...

Well I fell asleep during the midle of that race... it was either seriously boring or 4 hours sleep isnt enough :ponder: It was never a great race but it was just good to see Lewis just drive for the line as calmly as he did. 5th or better in Brazil now to win it.

Predictable result; you just knew Massa would finish second to take the championship to the final race!

The race was boring, I am saddened to see Hamilton still on top, and even more saddened to find Kubica well and truly out of the running. Very very odd stuff to see Kovaleinen retire so close to the end, and also to see him fall so far behind, fair enough he had problems with his brakes but you would have thought a driver who has supposedly got enough knowledge to be an F1 driver especially for Mclaren struggle with a problem like that and not be able to finish the race, would be able to really! What the hell was going on with Fisichella? Every lap he seemed to be somewhere he shouldn't be! Also I was really disappointed with David Coulthard too, given he has only got the end of the season to come why was he being a PENIS with Nick Heidfeld making a complaint? It's not as though he could have won the race!!! All in all, my hopes now lie with Massa, and I'm praying for gremlins with Hamilton's car! xxxxx

Thats one thing I hope doesnt happen... I want Hamilton to win but it'll be fine if Massa wins fairly... not with Hamilton retiring through reliability issues (if he walls it then tough luck.. providing Raikkonen doesnt try and kill him) or through a Stewards decision, I think most of the people supporting Massa want a fair win really as well.

In Interlagos, Hamilton should aim to be two places below Massa on the grid (so he's directly behind him on the staggered setup). At the start, just ram straight into him. He's not going to get ten points if he's rammed.

F1 are Ferrari supporters though, so he'd probably be given -20 points. Massa wouldn't, if he tried it.

2 hours to go until possibly the most exciting first corner there has been for years... it has just stopped raining in Brazil but there is still a 70% chance of rain during the race and I'm liking them odds! (Of course the McLaren's much prefer the wet conditions to the Ferrari's).

To win the title.
Hamilton - 3/10
Massa - 3/1

Although...
Hamilton to retire on the first lap - 10/1
Hamilton to have a crash with Raikkonen or Alonso - 16/1
Hamilton to be black flagged - 25/1
Hamilton to crash with Massa - 25/1

Talk about the closest of victories!!!!! :shock:

Thrilled to bits for him, it was bloody obvious who would win the race so I was just praying Hamilton wouldn't finish lower than 5th so he would still win - and he did! :D

Massa looks absolutely heartbroken! He'll certainly be back next season for revenge!

Quite frankly, this is the worst possible result IMO. I find him arrogant and smug and I just plain dislike him.
