PIC P12 1:20.310
GLOCK P16 1:19.686
Crowds were wowed by one of the most dramatic races that Formula 1 has seen in a long time. The Brazilian Grand Prix, which hosted the final race of the year, saw Sebastian Vettel able to secure his world championship for Red Bull by a mere three points more than Fernando Alonso and Ferrari. This made Vettel the youngest ever triple World Champion. But McLaren truly dominated the race at Interlagos, São Paulo this weekend, with Lewis Hamilton starting from Pole and leading for a large portion of the race, to then have his endeavours cut short as he was shunted off the track by Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg. However with Jenson Button taking control of the situation and fighting his way to the front of the pack, eventually taking the chequered flag, McLaren ended third in the World Constructors’ Championship.
Timo Glock and Charles Pic performed to the max, achieving a brilliant race result for the Marussia F1 Team ending in 16th and 12th positions respectively. Timo had a great start to the race reaching 7th position at one point, showing his experience and prowess, but was hit from behind by Jean-Eric Vergne and sadly for the Marussia F1 Team could not recover all the way to his advantage. The pressure was on for Charles to maintain his position in the race, but despite a sustained battle with Caterham’s Vitaly Petrov, the Russian managed to overtake Pic with 7 laps remaining, unfortunately costing Marussia F1 Team their 10th position in the Constructor’s’ Championship…
