[F4] Round 9 - Brazilian GP
« on: June 19, 2017, 02:43:16 pm »
Round 9: Brazilian Grand Prix



Next up for the F4 grid is a trip to Sao Paulo for the Brazilian Grand Prix. Interlagos is an old school, bumpy and narrow track that punishes mistakes. With unpredictable weather that can change in a heartbeat, the teams will need to be on the ball with their strategies. Over the years this event has thrown up some of motorsports most memorable moments. From Montoya’s pass on Schumacher into turn 1, to Hamilton’s last corner championship grab; Brazil certainly knows how to throw up surprises!

Last time out in Mexico the championship turned on its head as leader FlyingFrome retired from the race, leaving the chasing drivers a great opportunity to capitalize and eat into the lead at the top.

It was WarrenHague who took the initiative. He was running in second place to Friso for the first stint on the intermediate tyres. He stayed out longer than Friso before changing to the slicks and it worked out perfectly as he exited the pits in the lead of the race during a safety car period. Hague would go on to a commanding win and put himself right back into the championship hunt.

Venom and Cheater would have a long 15-lap battle for the second spot on the podium. Venom was running behind the 3 leaders during the inter period and showed typical strong wet weather pace. He would gain a spot under the safety car when Frome retired and then went on to pass Friso. Cheater had a cautious start losing a couple of places but began to make up ground. He was catching Venom, who was on the hard tyre and Cheater was on the faster softs. Into turn 1 they go side by side but Cheater backed out of it into 2 and 3 but crucially got a much better exit and passed into turn 4. The two drivers would be battling it out for the rest of the race but Cheater just had the pace to keep Venom behind him. A well deserved podium for both guys.

With Carworld moving up to F3 and Frome’s DNF, the driver’s title is looking closer than ever. McLaren now lead in the Constructors after Williams failed to score. We now finally have our first double winner of the season. Can Hague carry this form on into Round 9 and challenge for the Brazil win?


Lap record: 1:11.473 - Juan Pablo Montoya, Williams BMW FW26 – 2004

Track Trivia: Brazilian’s experienced home success right from the off, with Emerson Fittipaldi winning the first two editions of the Brazilian Grand Prix before Jose Carlos Pace scored his sole F1 victory for Brabham in 1975. The circuit was renamed in Pace's honour following his death in 1977

Questions:
1.   Were you satisfied with your result in Mexico?
3rd was a really good result and a fun race too.

2.   Who will grab pole in Brazil?
Frome

3.   Who will finish on the podium?
Friso, Frome, Hague

4.   Favourite Brazilian Grand Prix Moment?
Button winning the championship.

5.   After a successful test, Do you think Robert Kubica will ever race in F1 again?

Its a tough ask but I really hope he can do it. If he can drive a 2017 car, I'm sure in the Renault he would be as quick as Hulk at least.

1. Were you satisfied with your result in Mexico?
For sure. Haven't been on the podium since the final race of last season.

2. Who will grab pole in Brazil?
Friso. It's one of those tracks that anyone can get pole at, especially with some changing weather.

3. Who will finish on the podium?
Same as my usual guesses. Friso, Flyfrome and Grumpy.

4. Favourite Brazilian Grand Prix Moment?
The tension during the 2012 was pretty cool. The look on Alonso's face at the end though  :20:

5. After a successful test, Do you think Robert Kubica will ever race in F1 again?
I suppose you can't rule him out. Get him in the car for some practice sessions at some point!

1 - No!! Disastrous race. Not had a race that bad since I left F3. I've been near back to my best this season. Thought I had put those troubles behind me. It wasn't through my doing though.

2 - I say Friso.

3 - Friso, Venom and hopefully me.

4 - 2008!! Most dramatic end to a season.

5 - I hope so. Undeniably talented and we never got to see his full potential. Stick him in Palmer's Renault and he'll be at least as quick as Hulk.
