Gran Premio Monza 1996 - 02So this weekend is the last race in the Formula 1 calendar.  I guess the 3 qualifying sessions on Saturday are going to be the tensest of the year. Hopefully Massa or Kimi can place their cars on pole position and Hamilton can crash or get stuck somewhere down the bottom of the grid or come last (although we would be very happy if he crashed).

Hamilton’s 7 point lead is a tall order for the Ferrari team, but Massa can still win the title providing he wins with Hamilton sixth or lower or he finishes second with Hamilton eighth or lower (i.e., if Hamilton drops out of the race, Massa must finish in the top two positions to become champion).

It was close last year and no one thought Kimi could pull off a win, let alone win the championship, but he did, so there is always a chance.

Note to Massa: Come on Massa… really don’t like you, but if you win on Sunday, we will buy a Massa supporters cap.

DCIt’s also the last race for David Coulthard. He’s driven 245 races to date. I wonder how many he has actually finished. Recently we have been seeing him a lot off the road or crashed in the gravel trap. I think he has had a good career, and lets hope he doesn’t give up the F1 completely. Rumours are rife that he will be joining the commentry team at the BBC next year.  Having him share his experiences along with Martin Brundle would be very much welcomed.


Force India have one last chance of scoring a point for the 2008 season. Had Kimi not crashed up the back of Adrian Sutil back at the Monaco Grand Prix, they would have 6 points now and looking forward to next years racing. Although saying that if you look at that accident, Kimi was out of control a long way before he hit Sutil.

CockWhich brings me nicely to another person whose last race is on Sunday. That idiot of a commentator James “cock” Allen. Honestly there will be no tears shed after he signs off on Sunday. (Strangely enough I searched him using my Insights WordPress Plugin, and surprisingly there are no photos of him. There were loads of photos for Ferrari, Coulthard, Massa, Hamilton and Cock).

blankFinally, I hope ITV really milk the advert time slots that they have on Saturday & Sunday, as it will be the last time they broadcast the F1 and kill the excitement with their crappy adverts slots. The BBC have promised that all races next year will be free of adverts and that is probably the one thing we look forward to the most, and of course not listening to the cock.
