Formula 1 – 5 Things to Look Out for in Brazil

f1-edit111

1. More anger from Vettel – The German somewhat lost his head in Mexico, as he has all season, and with the regular sound of “BLUE FLAGS!!” being heard from the Four-times world champion’s radio this season, expect more drama to come in Brazil. First off, he needs to apologise to Race Director Charlie Whiting after telling him to “f**k off” in his memorable radio rant in Mexico.

2. Unpredictable Weather – The weather radar this weekend is the most irrelevant it will be over the course of the whole season. Rain clouds are known to quickly form over the Interlagos circuit and with rain (somehow predicted) on race day its set up to be an F1 classic.

3. The passionate Brazilian fans – The day’s of the Brazilian heroes have been and gone but the home fans still continue to turn out in the their thousands at one of the best attended Grand Prix’s all year. It’ll also be the final race for home driver Felipe Massa as he announced his retirement earlier this year. There were tears in 2008 as Massa narrowly missed out on the championship. Expect more when he takes part in his last Brazilian Grand Prix.

4. Potential new champion – Nico Rosberg’s stellar year could be topped off if he manages to take victory on Sunday. Standing in his way is a man looking to add to his previous three titles. Lewis Hamilton cannot afford another poor start that has potentially cost him several race wins over the course of the season. The Briton’s bad luck with mechanical problems has cost him several points but has fought back valiantly to be within a couple of points of Rosberg, can he do the impossible?

5. Max Verstappen – You get a mixture of everything with the Dutchman, brilliance, controversy and plenty of emotion. The 19-year-old has stunned the whole F1 world ever since debuting in March last year, pulling off some incredible overtaking manoeuvres, along with some clumsy mistakes, Verstappen’s unpredictability means we’ll no doubt see him and Vettel have a nice cuddle all weekend long.
