Sebastian Vettel won the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2013

Starting from pole position, Vettel lost leadership to Nico, but by the end of the first lap Seb restored the status quo and brought the race to a ninth consecutive victory and trinandtsatoy of the season, thus repeating the same record of Michael Schumacher. Win Sebastian has not prevented even a hitch in the pit stop, when in the pits waiting for the beginning of Mark Webber and did not have time to prepare the necessary rubber. Himself Mark also spent militancy race twice during the race overtook Fernando Alonso ahead of Nico and brought the Red Bull double, finishing second in the last Grand Prix of Formula 1 in his career. Alonso as he tried, but to keep the second place failed, but still on the podium, which said a few kind words about his team-mate Felipe Massa, who from next year, leaving the Ferrari family and goes to Williams. Before home stands Brazilian led a great battle, had made ​​their way from the start from ninth to sixth place, and then managed to get the fourth. Unfortunately, crossing the white line separating all four wheels led to the fine form of travel in the pit lane, which was thrown far behind Massa. In the end, Felipe finished only seventh, and it was not enough to win back the second place in the Constructors’ Championship for Ferrari – Mercedes team appeared at the end of season six points ahead. Had a great race, both pilots of the team McLaren, the day before failed the qualification. Starting 19th, Sergio Perez saw the checkered flag in sixth, and Jenson Button – the fourth. This is the fourth place was the best result of the British stables in season, which for her was incredibly complex and difficult. Nico Robserg faced to go the distance with a loss of pace. Having started the race second, he almost immediately lost to Vettel, and then began to get round his rivals one by one. The result – only the fifth place, while his team-mate Lewis Hamilton as Massa shlopotal penalty and crossed the line just ninth. The top ten finish and Nico (8th place) and Daniel Riccardo (10th place). At this time, there were no representatives of Team Lotus – from the Novel almost immediately spectacularly blown engine and replacing Kimi Raikkonen another Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen for the two races have not mastered the unfamiliar for yourself car to show for it at least close to the Frenchman results . So long season 2013 is finished, but not far off the tests, and then the presentation of new cars, built in accordance with the regulations of major changes. Recall that in the 2014th Formula 1 goes to the six-cylinder turbo instead of the atmospheric “eights”, KERS will replace a more efficient system adjusted and rules on aerodynamics. It is not excluded that Sergei Sirotkin yet become a combat pilot Sauber, so it should be very interesting.
