As the stage is set for Brazilian Grand Prix to be held at Autodroma Carlos Pace this coming weekend, Sebastian Vettel will be aiming to complete his title hat trick mission but arch rival Fernando Alonso has other plans. This Brazilian track has seen many last minute changes in what was taken for granted while the threat of rain also looms large.
Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel is desperate to stay in the lead ahead of Alonso to secure his third straight trophy, taking a 13 point lead over his rival. The odds favor 25 year old Vettel who has a 13 point lead and he also has an upper hand over Alonso where their Interlagos finishes are concerned. Vettel has one win, a second place and two four place finishes with only one retirement in 2007.
Alonso on the other hand has never topped the Brazilian podium and has two second places, two third place and two fourth places with two retirements. Vetter also has clinched four of the last six season races and received podium finishes in the other two while the last time Alonso experienced victory was at the German GP in July this year. At the end of today’s Free Parctice session (FP1), Hamilton was quickest with a lap time of 1:14:131, with Vettel and Webber completing the top 3 list. Results remained the same after the 2nd Free Practice session too.
