Too bad the season is ending as such a yawner. But having the lil Diva be WC will make for an interesting off season. He won't be able to shut up.

Ferrari's got a busy winter ahead of them.

Whoa now. Massa can[will] still take it.

Here's my official prediction: Kimi back on form takes pole from Lewis, Massa 3rd, Kubica 4th, Alonso 5th, Heikki 6th. Kimi wins the drag race, Hamilton gets misty and crashes himself and Kimi out in the first turn, Massa walks away from Alonso and Kubica to win the race and championship.

Nice, I like it. There's a real possibility of the mist hitting the Diva.

The best way for Hamilton to pull this off is to do what he did last weekend and leave everyone behind so he can't get taken out. His only real competition ,the FIA ( Ferrari Interferience Association ) will do whatever it can to prevent him from ending up the WC.

Alonso wouldn't mind getting in the way of Hamilton... but Hamilton probably should win over Massa, not impressed with his driving in general...

Maybe this will slap some sense into Max

With Max Mosley pushing a one-engine-for-all agenda as a cost-saving measure for Formula One teams, Ferrari has threatened to get out of the F1 business entirely. Ferrari believes that, after more than 50 years of consecutive commitment to the racing series, it would be better served looking elsewhere for race wins if the spec engine proposal gets approved. Mosley has tried to ignore the problem — which he's proven is a winning strategy. Ferrari is probably just mouthing off, as they have made so much history in F1 people are naming buildings after their drivers. The Ferrari statement below the jump.

Ferrari Statement:
"The Board of Directors of Ferrari SpA met today under the chairmanship of Luca di Montezemolo, to examine the third quarter results. The Board of Directors also examined the proposed changes to the Formula One regulations, in the light of the current global economic crisis.

"Whilst reiterating its wholehearted commitment to a substantial and needed reduction in costs in Formula One, starting with propulsion, the Ferrari Board of Directors expressed strong concerns regarding plans to standardise engines as it felt that such a move would detract from the entire raison of a sport with which Ferrari has been involved continuously since 1950, a raison d’etre based principally on competition and technological development.

"The Board of Directors expressed the opinion that should these key elements be diminished, it would have to re-evaluate, with its partners the viability of continuing its presence in the sport."

Wow....

Pass the bong, Max.

He has totally lost focus on what F1 is supposed to be - innovation.

Bingo. Make all the engines the same and you remove half of what the constructors championship is all about.

Championship contenders Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton set the pace as practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix opened in Interlagos on Friday morning in windy, overcast but dry conditions.

Hamilton was fastest for much of the session in his McLaren, before Massa slipped ahead with a lap of 1m 12.305s in the final third for Ferrari. Hamilton’s 1m 12.495s left him second, only 0.190s adrift, and they were followed by the second Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen (1m 12.507s), BMW Sauber’s Robert Kubica (1m 12.874s) and McLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen (1m 12.925s). Raikkonen spun once in Turn Two, and that was the sole incident of an otherwise relatively quiet session.

The next 13 cars were covered by eight-tenths of a second, as Fernando Alonso recorded 1m 13.061s for Renault and was chased by Red Bull’s Mark Webber (1m 13.298s), Renault’s Nelson Piquet (1m 13.378s), BMW Sauber Nick Heidfeld (1m 13.426s), Toyota’s Timo Glock (1m 13.466s) and Jarno Trulli (1m 13.600s), Williams’ Nico Rosberg (1m 13.621s), Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Bourdais (1m 13.649s), Honda’s Rubens Barrichello (1m 13.676s) and Jenson Button (1m 13.766s), Williams’ Kazuki Nakajima (1m 13.806s), Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Vettel (1m 13.836s) and Red Bull’s David Coulthard (1m 13.861s).

The weekend, of course, marks Coulthard’s final F1 race, and to commemorate that his Red Bull RB4 has been decked out in a startling new livery to support the Wings For Life spinal injuries charity.

At the back, Adrian Sutil again had the upper hand over Force India team mate Giancarlo Fisichella, with respective times of 1m 14.704s and 1m 14.821s.
Let's go Massa! I think if Hamilton puts one foot wrong all race the title is Massa's, and I have a feeling he's going to try to either show up Massa on his home turf and/or go for the constructor's cup. Here's hoping he crashes out in the first turn taking Heikki with him. (I love Heikki but it would be funny ****)

What with Lewis somewhat off the pace on Friday 2nd practice, and locking up numerous tires, it will be an interesting quali tomorrow. I'm sure all the teams are totally frantic right about now. The only relaxed one is probably DC.

Dude, sift back through the last couple pages, I linked a page that'll have the ITV torrents up a couple hours after it airs. 100x better than Speed if you tune out all the Hamilton biased dick sucking.
