Some time ago I wrote about the control that Ferrari seems to have over the F1 motor sport world. Today, unsurprisingly, we go to the last grand prix of the season in Brazil with the title race still undecided. What are the chances of every GP season in the past few years always coming down to the last race?
Forgive me for being cynical but by keeping interest in the championship going does the revenue increase?
The power of Ferrari over the sport has been demonstrated throughout the season. They have always had the “rub of the green”, usually at Maclarens expense. That is why on this final day Hamilton, that fresh faced Englishman, will not win the title. There is too much at stake money wise for the controlling bodies not to allow Ferrari to win.
My prediction: Expect to see Hamilton’s either…….. have a puncture at a critical moment; be shunted off the race track by another driver; or, the Maclaren team make some unbelievably bad calls.
Either way, Massa will go onto win the title. And if for some reason my cynical side has got it all wrong, then I will eat “humble pie”, apologise to all afficionados of the prancing horse and run naked round my swimming pool!
