It was a sensational end to a championship, one which will take some topping. I was on the edge of my seat having multiple heart attacks by the last lap ð . Rain affected the race right at the beginning and, crucially, the last 3 laps. It was a tough call to put wets on but they had to, it was too slippy. All put wets on except Toyota who gambled (bravely) and stayed out on dry tyres. This catapulted Glock up through the ranks. Meanwhile Vettel passed Hamilton to knock him down to a championship losing 6th with a couple of laps to go. It really looked like it was over for Hamilton as he couldn’t find a way around Vettel. That is until the last corner on the last lap when Glock, in his now uncontrollable Toyota, lost traction giving Hamilton the chance to pass for 5th and the championship. An amazing sporting moment, simply stunning.
It was also the end to the Yahoo! Fantasy F1. I had Kovalainen, Piquet, Bourdais and Renault. Kovalainen came home 7th, Piquet didn’t come home, Bourdais came home 14th and Renault cars finished 2nd and DNF. I got a handful of points to finish the season on 396 points putting me in 3097th place (!). Overall winner scored 571 points so I was miles behind. Roll on March 2009! ð
