[Written with 50 laps remaining]
What a weekend for Formula One, with the end of so many racing relationships on the track at Sao Paulo.
- Michael Schumacher official “retirement” from racing.
- Cosworth leaves F1.
- Michelin leaves Formula One and rules out a comeback.
With so many new drivers and the changes in sponsorship and regulations, this is the final race of an era and not a good race for Williams or Toyota…
Now as many of this blogs readers are based in the UK, I better explain that the Speed TV coverage may be badgered by commercial breaks but it doesn’t suffer from James Allen! The presenters on Speed are:
- David Hobbs, ex-driver with more than 30 years of international driving experience, including Formula One, Touring Car, and Nascar –
- Peter Windsor, known in the UK as the voice of the pre and post race press conferences, provides the Speed TV pre-race grid walkabout coverage as well as the pitlane commentary.
- Steve Matchett
- Bob Varsha
So a flat rear meant Michael didn’t get his final World Title, but I definitely felt Alonso has deserved this championship, especially after some of the more interesting judgement calls earlier in the season.
