Welcome to our blog post of the penultimate round of the 2010 formula 1 season!
The weekend started yesterday with a surprising pole of the Hulk, and finished today with the constructors championship for Red Bull Racing.
Hulk said already before the race that it would be impossible for him to keep the Red Bulls, McLaren and Alonso behind him. Seb passed him already in the first turn; Webber did it few turns later. But for Alonso, who passed Hamilton very quickly, it took 6 laps to overtake Hulk.
Button took new tyres quite early, which brang him from P11 to P5 in the end, a perfect strategy!
Massa even had to visit the pits twice because in the first try his right front tyre wasn’t fixed correctly…
Well to be honest… it was quite an boring race, as except the crash of Liuzzi in lap 46 was the only accident which happened, and the most cars had a quite nice gap between to the men in front and behind.
There was though a bit action, when 8 cars were so close together and specially Buemi and Massa where doing some auto-scooter. And this group had to been overlapped by leading people.
But well beside all more or less big action, Seb controlled the race and kept his title hopes alive!
So after this 1-2 for Red Bull they fixed the constructors Championship and the drivers champion will be decided next weekend at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
A little mathematics lesson (I won’t write all scenarios here but well the easiest):
– Vettel becomes WDC if he wins and Alonso becomes 5th or worse
– Webber becomes WDC if he wins and Alonso becomes 4th or worse
– Alonso becomes WDC if he gets on the podium.
– And all 3 drivers have the same amount of points if Seb wins, Webber gets 2nd and Alonso 5th. In this case Vettel would be the World Champion.
So Alonso has the best chances but the track at Abu Dhabi should suit quite well RBR and with the very long straight it could be McLaren ground too. So for now all Red Bull Racing fans JUST ENJOY THE FEELING TO BE WORLD CHAMPION =) And don’t start calculating the drivers championship now! Anyways we can’t change the outgoing of next weeks’ GP and the race god will for sure choose the right champion!!
So see you to the GP of Abu Dhabi next weekend, which is unfortunately already the last one of this season.
