Records Abound in Brazil whilst Drivers set off in different directions



All I could think of was thee young "Louise 'JAGUAR" Hamilton's recent comment 'bout how Vettel's dominance is eerily similar to the Schumacher era where Y'all could get up 'N watch the start of the F1 race, then switch off the 'Telie and go back to bed for awhile before tuning  in at the end to see DER TERMINATOR win again; YAWN!

Yet for three of "TWINKIEBOYZ" fellow competitors, this year's season ending race at Interlagos in Sao Paolo marked a few notable occurrences for three Formula 1 drivers at different stages in their respective careers...

As we all know that Brazil marked the true grit 'Aussie Mark 'Handlebarz Webber's final drive in an F1 car, having announced his retirement long ago this past summer, as it seems that the NBCSN Booth Boyz summed it up appropriately by saying Webber was in the right car, right team at the right time, he just so happened to have somebody named Vettel as his teammate!




Yet for Homeboy Felipe Massa, Brazil marked his final drive for la Scuderia, as its hard to believe he's driven in the scarlet cars for eight years, as obviously his zenith at Ferrari was 2008 when he was world champion for about 30-seconds, whilst not surprisingly his low point personally came at Hockenheim where Ferrari effectively crushed his fighting spirit, as Massa will most likely sail off into the sunset of his Formula 1 career driving for Sir Frank's floundering Team Willy, which hopefully Massa can help turn Williams dismal form around with the impressive Finn (Rookie) Valtteri Bottas...




Meanwhile, Good 'Ol Bloody 'JENSE was soldiering on with McLaren International who managed to turn out a veritable Ox Cart this year in terms of chassis-wise, as this season would become McLaren's first without a podium finish since 1980, ironically the very year Messer Button was born!

As Button himself was setting a 'Wee bit 'O history Sunday by becoming the British driver to start the most Grand Prix's by overtaking David Coulthard's previous tally of 246 Grand Prix races...


And lastly, as previously mentioned, it was not only the end of the mandatory V-8 engine era, but the end of Cosworth's involvement in Formula 1 which did go out on top with Marussia clinching the vital tenth place Constructor's finish ahead of arch-rival Caterham, with both teams scoring Goosegg's points-wise once again this season...
