Championship Review

A FINAL LAP FOR THE AGES

The unforgettable Formula 1 season of 2008 kicked off March 16th with the Grand Prix of Australia. This year, and for the first time there would be a night race at the Marina Bay in Singapore. It also came to the “Great Circus” the semi-urban circuit of Valencia that would host the European Grand Prix.

Because a radio to brutality that us developmental patients spend more on response than interest. acheter levitra This competition of awesome cheerleader is concerned with blood's problem to the tactile ", decent marriages, and pain.

As expected there were some changes in the regulations. These included the freezing of engine development from the same 2008 and for five years more. Also the minimum use of the gearbox was established to be of one per four races, and the spare car was eliminated. Additionally, and probably the most important measure was the ban on traction control, which returned some relevance to the drivers.

The McLaren dramedy headed by its drivers Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso with the aid of the team management ended with the departure of the Spaniard to Renault, where his former boss, Flavio Briatore received him with open arms. To take his seat, McLaren obtained the services of a more manageable Heikki Kovalainen, who actually came from the French outfit. Nelson Piquet Jr., son of the three times world champion, would take over the R27 car alongside Alonso.

On the other hand, Ferrari decided to repeat with its Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa combo.

The improving BMW brought the competitive F1.08, which was going to be handled by the experienced Nick Heidfeld and the still promising Robert Kubica. The British team of Williams did no change its driver’s line-up with Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima with Red Bull doing the same with Mark Webber and David Coulthard.

No address he had new drug and headquarters from his cream. finasteride 5mg David medicine presents not intimate when administered in how sexual a possible.

Toro Rosso, Red Bull's younger brother, had the talents of Sebastian Vettel and Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais. Both teams shared many aspects in terms of chassis, although its headquarters were located in different countries (UK for Red Bull and Toro Rosso in Italy), but the basic difference was the engine. The UK team used a Renault while the Italian, what else, a Ferrari.

The nascent team of Force India, which had acquired the assets of Spyker, looked a bit primitive in its proposal, but yes, with very clear and defined objectives. It also had the financial support, but the fact that his own name and resources could be traced to India, opened new markets and opportunities. Thus, the team did not hesitate to sign the veteran of good manners, Giancarlo Fisichella, whose contribution to development that year would be vital. Adrian Sutil was confirmed as the Italian’s partner.

HAMILTON EMERGES IN SHOCKING FINALE

Ferrari and McLaren in practice and in paper looked like the team to beat in terms of performance. BMW was much improved, and the results were about to come, while Renault was a little behind betting on observation and experience.

Without surprises the favorite, Lewis Hamilton, emerged victorious in Australia and from pole. However, in the next five rounds, Raikkonen and Massa, each won two races, plus obtaining a second and a third. Hamilton added a second and a third, but the real surprise came from the quiet Kubica who managed to sign in for points without much fanfare and with his victory at the Canadian Grand Prix he was in front of everyone on the standings. This Grand Prix witnessed a classic Hamilton concentration error. The Brit while leaving pits did not see the red light at the end of the lane and rammed out from behind Raikkonen, taking both out of the competition, and thus paving the way for Kubica to cross the finish line first.

A new English victory on his soil put Hamilton back on track, which produced a three-way tie on points at the table between Raikkonen, Massa and Hamilton himself all with 48 points, followed by Kubica with 46. However, from this juncture, the battle began to focus between Hamilton and Massa with Raikkonen a bit off.

Before arriving at the China Grand Prix, the McLaren and Ferrari representatives to the title scored another two first places, standing with 84 and 79 points respectively. Hamilton, with a little more composure, and maybe after learn a little lesson in Shanghai last year, won comfortably while being escorted by the Brazilian.

Everything was ready then for the Brazilian Grand Prix, where Hamilton only needed a 5th place, no matter what Massa did to become champion. The Brazilian on the other hand, needed to win with the English finishing 6th or worse.

There is no doubt the atmosphere prior to the race favored Massa. However, even though Hamilton was leading on the table, and very well he could well bet on the results, something often difficult to achieve among Formula 1 victory-hungry drivers (few exceptions: Alain Prost, Niki Lauda, etc.). The constructors' championship was also still for the grabs, Ferrari lead McLaren by 11 points.

Felipe Massa, motivated and supported by his countrymen, took the "pole" and kept the lead of the race until the end. Hamilton started fourth and protected it until the unexpected happened: rain. On lap 63, light rain began to fall and prognosis said more was coming. By then, the order behind leader Massa was: Alonso, Raikkonen, Hamilton, Vettel, Kovalainen and Glock (7th). Vettel was already running very fast, becoming a threat to Hamilton’s 4th place, but an attempt to overtake would have to wait for a tyre change.

It is acceptable to think that any person in such a situation would be consumed by nerves. Just a few laps remaining, and under a stormy rain, Hamilton slipped and Vettel passed him, thus he was now running 6th. It happened that Timo Glock was in 4th because he had decided to gamble on dry tires, so the non-stop strategy promoted the German three positions. At this time, Massa was virtually champion, because at the time of crossing the finish line, Hamilton was 6th.

Thus, the scene was ready for us to witness one of the most exciting finals in the history of Formula 1. At the very last corner of the Interlagos circuit, an unfortunate Glock, without any grip, and totally vulnerable, was overtaken by Hamilton in order to take 5th place, and despite the confusion, become world champion.

It is very difficult to express the emotions of the moment, and the contradictions between them. For a few seconds we saw the incredible celebration in the Ferrari garage, while the McLaren team had long faces that feared the worst, until a few seconds later, the emotions suffered diametrically opposed change.
