Vettel in Brazil became a triple world champion

The last Grand Prix of Brazil in 2012 once again became a place of battle for the title in the individual competition, which is the third consecutive win Sebastian Vettel, ahead of his pursuer in the face of Fernando Alonsso three points. Recall that before the start of Seba advantage over the Spaniard was 13 points, so that the victory of the young German was enough to finish no lower than fourth place. However, to do this Vettel failed, as, indeed, it was not possible to win the race and Alonso. Start was quite dramatic. Pilots Scuderia started well and Felipe Massa from fifth place came in third, and Fernando – from seventh to fifth. This Sebastian its launch failed, and in the second turn his car hit Williams Bruno Senna. Vettel spun 180 degrees, and the entire back of the field swept past. Fortunately, the car was slightly damaged, and Seb pulled recoup. Places for overtaking the Brazilian Interlagos enough, and even if Sebastian was able to break through the back of the field twice in Abu Dhabi, then do it here, he was even easier. Most pilots turned into the pits for intermediate tires, including both candidates for the title. But Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton managed to get around in the struggle for leadership in the race, was on slicks. The solution turned out to be true Englishman – rain soon stopped, and all had to re-call in the pits. It seemed to come true victory, but not a bit of it! Nico all this time and stayed on slicks. This pilot Force India managed not only to catch up with Button, but ahead of him. Alas, carbon debris on the track due to a number of different incidents caused the safety car, offset by a huge advantage to lead the two pilots. After the restart, Lewis Hamilton, who in Brazil held its final race for McLaren, beat his teammate and threw himself into the fight for the lead. It all ended rather sadly. During the attack in the first turn the machine Hulkenberg suffered on a wet track and the rear wheel of Force India broke the front suspension McLaren’s Hamilton. Nico punished penalty drive-through pit-lei, which dropped him far back, Lewis went down and did the same. A few laps later the rain started again, and this, that this time even the Button “pereobulsya” on intermediate tires. In second place was Felipe Massa, and the third after a pit stop Alonso appeared. Of course, once the Spaniard overtook his team mate, he did not resist, in vain Fernando ahead. Sebastian Vettel after his pit stop went on the road the seventh, but soon beat Schumacher, climbing to sixth place. It Seb eventually finished, but second place Alonso to the title he lacked, but the Red Bull today celebrate the victory of his ward in the championship. Race in Brazil still won Jenson Button finished second and third Scuderia Ferrari drivers – Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa respectively. Fourth was Mark Webber and Nico crossed the finish line only fifth. Michael Schumacher in his last race in Formula 1, scored points in seventh place, and in the first ten finishers as Jean-Eric Vergne (8th place) in the Toro Rosso, Kamui Kobayashi (9th) in the Sauber and Kimi Raikkonen (10th) to Lotus. Well, now ahead of us offseason. However, since the championship was quite long, it has only two months will start the first tests, and in March will start the new season.
