contrasting sides separated only by fractions. By a thin, brittle line.

:01:27.:01:32.

For a while perhaps, victory and glory are companions. The world, it

:01:32.:01:39.

seems, it belongs to you. But never think it is forever. One slip

:01:39.:01:43.

across the mind and you are lost. Once a challenger, now no more than

left in the chasing pack turned to bickering, chlorine and scratching

as the search for that elusive glory again. At times, there is

:02:05.:02:10.

also a glimpse through the window to the world outside, where good

:02:10.:02:15.

times and bad have far more meaning than mere sport can offer. Some

:02:15.:02:20.

have to leave the stage, while others linger. Held fast, thinking

:02:20.:02:26.

that triumph is still close at hand. It is a fine line between he who

:02:26.:02:36.

needs and those left behind. What drives them all on? It is the fault

:02:36.:02:43.

of glory. Which in the end can fall only to one man. So at a salute to

:02:43.:02:50.

those who race, to those who win and lose, succeed and failed in the

:02:50.:02:54.

blink of an eye. And a salute to the champion, to the man who for

:02:54.:03:00.

now enjoys the favours and the spoils. But know that in the

:03:12.:03:18.

Just a few highlights of be truly curious formula One series. Welcome

:03:18.:03:22.

to the highlights of the final Grand Prix of PCs and. We have

:03:22.:03:30.

right here having been crop -- right across the world. The

:03:30.:03:34.

champion is already crowned. You can see that the name Vettel

:03:34.:03:44.
:03:44.:03:48.

appears often on this list. In the constructors battle, it was all

:03:48.:03:54.

about the midfield. All the action from the base in just a moment.

:03:54.:04:00.

First, here is what happened in the qualifying. Could Sebastian Vettel

:04:00.:04:04.

break all the records and pick up 15 Paul positions in just one

:04:04.:04:08.

season? Sometimes in Formula One, you have

:04:08.:04:14.

to applaud greatness way you find it. Sebastian Vettel set pole

:04:14.:04:17.

position for the busy Liam Bond bricks, just as he has 14 other

:04:17.:04:24.

times this season -- the Brazilian Grand Prix. He broke Nigel

:04:24.:04:34.
:04:34.:04:34.

Mansell's record. Yes, Baby E! We got it. Pretty special. Sorry for

:04:34.:04:40.

my job, but not really sorry. He obviously took three all four races

:04:40.:04:46.

less. Nevertheless, it has been an incredible year for us. A almost as

:04:46.:04:51.

excited word Rubens Barrichello and Bruno Senna, who used to the Home

:04:51.:04:57.

track to deliver their impressive laps. For the other Brazilian in

:04:57.:05:02.

the field looks less sure footed, even by his recent standards.

:05:02.:05:10.

Felipe Massa struggled in his Ferrari. He was beaten to 6th by it

:05:10.:05:18.

-- beaten 26. You have a qualified your team-mate 16 times this year.

:05:18.:05:26.

Does that give you a smile? course that is OK. It is fine.

:05:26.:05:30.

left the rest to fight over the places behind Vettel. Fernando

:05:30.:05:34.

Alonso was in his usual 5th place. Ms Hamilton was disappointed in

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:45.

force, being out qualified by it Jenson Button. The other guys did a

:05:45.:05:53.

great job in front of me. It is not perfect, but it is a good place to

:05:53.:05:58.

start tomorrow. Mark Webber made Sebastian Vettel work for the pole

:05:58.:06:05.

position in the final runs, but what qualifying might have lost --

:06:05.:06:12.

lacked in sporting contest, it made up for in a display of genius.

:06:12.:06:15.

Concentration to the maximum. I hope to get something good out of

:06:15.:06:20.

it in the end. Last race I did not finish. I want to see the chequered

:06:20.:06:28.

flag. I think this race has always been different, special in many

:06:28.:06:36.

ways. It has delivered great races. Red Bull lock out the front row for

:06:36.:06:46.
:06:46.:07:10.

the 7th time this season. Jenson with Lewis Hamilton. A lot of

:07:10.:07:14.

science goes into that. He parks quite a bit bare the his yellow

:07:14.:07:24.
:07:24.:07:24.

line. -- over his yellow line. Mark Webber is already pointing towards

:07:24.:07:34.
:07:34.:07:37.

Vettel. Look, but never stare. The Brazilian Grand Prix is under way.

:07:37.:07:46.

Mark Webber is under pressure from Jenson Button. Alonso and goes

:07:46.:07:49.

around the outside of Hamilton. Felipe Massa looks like he has had

:07:49.:07:55.

a great start. Ferrari's, once again, very quick off the start.

:07:55.:08:01.

Very quick from macro webber. Alonso, defending hard against

:08:01.:08:11.

Lewis Hamilton. Michael Schumacher might have slipped back. He is in

:08:11.:08:15.

11th place. It is not often we have said that this season. They are

:08:15.:08:22.

still jockeying for position as we go into turn six. Vettel, pulling

:08:22.:08:26.

out a very handsome lead considering the distance they have

:08:26.:08:36.
:08:36.:08:45.

travelled in this Grand Prix. Petrov is up from 15th to 12th.

:08:45.:08:55.

Alguersuari has gone a long way back. Once again, Kovalainen, a

:08:55.:09:02.

mighty start for Lotus, up into 15th place. 1.1 second is the

:09:02.:09:08.

leader by Vettel at the end of the first lap. Schumacher has completed

:09:08.:09:18.
:09:18.:09:22.

the pass by eight arrester. -- Karthikeyan. He will be looking

:09:22.:09:26.

down the inside as he goes into turn four. Schumacher should defend

:09:26.:09:36.
:09:36.:09:43.

that. He did indeed. It is quite slippery on the inside. Rubens

:09:43.:09:48.

Barrichello slipped down from 12 on the grid to 19th. A very poor first

:09:48.:09:53.

lap from him sadly. Fernando Alonso, getting himself up alongside

:09:53.:10:03.
:10:03.:10:07.

Hamilton. NASA getting very much upon the kerb. -- Felipe Massa

:10:07.:10:14.

earth. Michael Schumacher, using a lot of the kerb. Good clean stuff

:10:14.:10:19.

from all the runners. Barrichello is already a long way back. He must

:10:19.:10:26.

have been slow off the line. Hamilton got a good start. He was

:10:26.:10:31.

homing in on Mark Webber. Alonso got a good start, but could not

:10:31.:10:40.

really do anything with it. Eight seconds covers the top seven at the

:10:40.:10:47.

moment. It sounded like an incredibly low rpm one that Renault

:10:47.:10:54.

engine. But he glanced in his mirrors and saw he was safe in the

:10:54.:11:02.

run in to turn to. Sebastien had the luxury of being pretty cautious.

:11:03.:11:08.

This is Barrichello. He was swamped with all the cars. There is nothing

:11:08.:11:15.

you can do in that situation. are out of sync with the whole pack.

:11:15.:11:20.

When you are moving along, it looks much, from behind the steering

:11:20.:11:23.

wheel than it does when you are watching. But as soon as you're out

:11:23.:11:33.

of sync in terms of Speed, you get mugged left or right and centre.

:11:33.:11:36.

Michael Platt as he was in the braking phase and the hit the front

:11:36.:11:44.

of his wing -- Michael braked. Michael went for the upside, hit

:11:44.:11:50.

the brakes and then turned in front of Bruno Senna. There was not much

:11:50.:12:00.
:12:00.:12:03.

Pruneau could do in that situation. -- Senna. He lost the leading edge,

:12:03.:12:09.

which will affect the overall downforce. But maybe that will trim

:12:09.:12:14.

the car for him and bring him into balance. Let's keep an eye on his

:12:14.:12:22.

lap times. Ever the optimist! We know there is an investigation into

:12:22.:12:27.

that incident between cars seven and nine. Alonso got so much more

:12:27.:12:32.

Speed coming out of five. He has gone around the outside!

:12:32.:12:36.

Unbelievable! That was an incredible pass. You would never

:12:36.:12:41.

dream of going around the outside into that corner. I would not even

:12:41.:12:46.

set the car up to try it. That is the difference between great

:12:46.:12:56.
:12:56.:13:02.

drivers and... It is maybe six and two threes from that angle. Bruno

:13:02.:13:07.

Senna, not going to a lot of trouble to get out of his way. He

:13:07.:13:13.

is obviously a bit anxious there. There goes the brand new set of

:13:13.:13:20.

tyres on the Schumacher's car. Unlike Vettel in the last race,

:13:20.:13:30.
:13:30.:13:33.

there was not too much damage. That is something we're hearing and the

:13:33.:13:40.

team radio feed. The Rea tyres are starting to hurt. They can live

:13:40.:13:43.

with a little bit of blistering, but they might have to bring their

:13:43.:13:51.

pit-stops forward. Michael Schumacher of rejoins the mighty

:13:51.:13:57.

scrap between the two McLarens. He is a lap down after that pit stop.

:13:57.:14:01.

As soon as Jensen got a wrong- footed in turn six, he had to

:14:01.:14:08.

defend heavily in four, was slowed in five and Alonso breeze around

:14:08.:14:14.

him in five. -- 6. I think the first point of contact was Bruno

:14:14.:14:21.

Senna or going a little bit deep on the brakes. They had already

:14:21.:14:23.

touched at that point. I don't think Michael has done anything

:14:23.:14:29.

wrong, or Bruno. Michael was a little bit aggressive in the

:14:29.:14:33.

braking when he turned in, but he could not judge exactly where Bruno

:14:33.:14:39.

was. He was in his blind spot. You cannot remove your car from the

:14:39.:14:49.
:14:49.:14:53.

The whole top of the end plate is broken. Unless their strategy was

:14:53.:14:59.

to do three stops, the hall leading edge was just flapping around. --

:14:59.:15:05.

the entire leading edge. First of all, they say there is

:15:05.:15:10.

nothing wrong with a Jenson Button scarf. Alonso was just quicker.

:15:10.:15:16.

Vitaly Petrov stopping. RADIO: Short shift second gear, we have a

:15:16.:15:24.

gearbox problem. Do your best. Gearbox problem for Sebastian

:15:24.:15:29.

Vettel, he added changes wing in parc ferme, no indication of any

:15:30.:15:34.

problems throughout the weekend. We will see how that affects his lap

:15:34.:15:42.

time. They are telling their drivers to nurse the car. Bob Red

:15:42.:15:50.

Bull are getting ready. . That suggests an overheating

:15:50.:15:54.

gearbox. It could be a synchronisation issue.

:15:54.:15:58.

There is a seamless shift, thankfully for Sebastian Vettel

:15:58.:16:05.

they only use the second gear on two places on the track, turn eight

:16:05.:16:09.

and turn 10. The gap there, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber,

:16:09.:16:17.

the gap is reducing. Sebastian Vettel went a little bit wide, in a

:16:17.:16:21.

pine tree corner. Presumably, he might have been listening to the

:16:21.:16:27.

radio. A I don't remember ever going faster whilst listening to 18

:16:27.:16:32.

radio, never affected my lap time. Somehow when the radius box open

:16:32.:16:36.

and you start listening to the Engineer, it does take away a bit

:16:36.:16:40.

of concentration. You don't slowdown on the road when you were

:16:40.:16:47.

listening to Cliff Richard? You are driving at 70 mph.

:16:48.:16:57.
:16:58.:16:58.

This is Buemi, Alguersuari, 13. This is Adrian Sutil making his way

:16:58.:17:05.

through the pack, having just gone in for a pit-stop. Does that

:17:05.:17:10.

suggest three stops? The briefing this morning, they were suggesting

:17:10.:17:14.

three is too slow. You said it at the beginning of the show. It seems

:17:14.:17:22.

the tyres are giving up earlier than they thought.

:17:22.:17:28.

McLaren boys out, Jenson Button is coming in. The briefing was, expect

:17:28.:17:32.

two, the reality is looks like they are on for three stops this

:17:32.:17:40.

afternoon. Not a lot of degradation between the hard and soft tyre.

:17:40.:17:44.

they just overheating or blistering? At this stage of the

:17:44.:17:49.

race, we heard a radio message, saying that right rear blisters. He

:17:49.:17:53.

ran on Friday with a lot of blistering. Providing it does not

:17:53.:17:57.

take away the surface, the carcass remains intact, they can run

:17:57.:18:02.

happily. Jenson Button comes out in front of

:18:02.:18:08.

Paul di Resta after that pit stop. You can see the chi is -- the ties

:18:08.:18:12.

that came off. There is a small circumference, line of blisters,

:18:12.:18:21.

not too bad. I fancy that was to try and get past the Ferrari.

:18:21.:18:27.

What sort of size of the blisters? 5p, 10 pence? Half a centimetre,

:18:27.:18:37.
:18:37.:18:37.

tiny, not very big at all. RADIO: Q sure shift, second and third gear.

:18:37.:18:43.

Second and third gear? Her I think it is an overheating thing. Alonso

:18:43.:18:50.

and Hamilton pit. End of lap 16. A straight fight between Ferrari and

:18:50.:18:59.

McLaren. About the same pit stop time. We will see any moment now.

:18:59.:19:09.
:19:09.:19:12.

It is taking about 19 seconds in total on a good stop. There is a

:19:12.:19:18.

long so, where his Jenson Button? Where is Hamilton? -- there is

:19:18.:19:25.

Alonso. Note changes. -- there are no changes after that round of pit

:19:25.:19:33.

stops. A tidy stop for Mercedes. Explain

:19:33.:19:38.

this to me, we meet with senior engineers in the morning, they give

:19:38.:19:41.

us the benefit of their experience through Friday and Saturday

:19:41.:19:45.

practice. The Red Bull crew are coming out, what is before

:19:45.:19:55.

Sebastian Vettel? I think it is. people waiting for him. Pretty

:19:55.:20:01.

scary, driving at a garage of men at 60 mph. That looked quick.

:20:01.:20:05.

he has to use his first gear in the pit lane. He will have to short

:20:05.:20:08.

shift three second and third when he get out of the end of the pit

:20:08.:20:15.

lane. Is it a heating issue? If you go into third in the pit lane,

:20:15.:20:22.

often you can drop out your limiter and take off and get a penalty. Ted

:20:22.:20:27.

Kravitz was looking at Sebastian Vettel's tyres. They were about the

:20:27.:20:35.

same. Slightly less blisters, fewer blisters than the McLaren. Also, he

:20:35.:20:39.

overshot his pit box by about 10 centimetres seven are carried had

:20:39.:20:44.

to shift up a bit. That could prove crucial. A very small gap to Mark

:20:44.:20:51.

Webber, he has stayed out so this could be Mark Webber's opportunity.

:20:51.:20:58.

Bruno Senna, he has a penalty. The stewards have decided it was his

:20:58.:21:07.

fault for causing a collision. Pretty tough. That is a bit unfair.

:21:08.:21:12.

Red Bull are out in the pit lane. Mark Webber will be in at this lap.

:21:12.:21:18.

They got far more camera angles that we have got. They have got G

:21:18.:21:28.
:21:28.:21:33.

Ps, can compare previous laps. -- G behind Sebastian Vettel. Looks like

:21:33.:21:38.

he has lost time, must have got some traffic on his in lap.

:21:38.:21:41.

Sebastian Vettel coming through, Mark Webber was just over one

:21:42.:21:45.

second when he went in for the stop. That looks like a much bigger gap

:21:45.:21:51.

now. This is Sebastian Vettel catching Massa, he is still yet to

:21:51.:22:01.
:22:01.:22:04.

Pearce. -- be it. -- he is still yet to go into the pits. He will

:22:04.:22:12.

know if he gets anywhere round, he can open his rear wing. It seems to

:22:12.:22:17.

be quite late, a perfect run down the outside into the braking zone.

:22:17.:22:24.

Massa got out of it, he will be on a dirty part of the track.

:22:24.:22:30.

Perez has gone into the pits, Rosberg going by Alguersuari.

:22:31.:22:36.

to be flat out in fourth, fifth, sixth and 7th. Gotta be careful in

:22:36.:22:42.

second and third place. I used to breeze beside of relief if I got

:22:42.:22:46.

through turn three without being on opposite lock and threatening

:22:46.:22:50.

myself silly. You could have done a % of Euro downforce and gone faster.

:22:50.:23:00.
:23:00.:23:05.

A different world. -- 8% of your we first stop. Massa has not stopped

:23:05.:23:09.

but his lapping slowly. France we are out in the pit lane. He will be

:23:09.:23:15.

coming in this lap. -- Ferrari. About 19 seconds, will put him out

:23:15.:23:21.

behind Hamilton. He is currently running in sixth place. Felipe

:23:21.:23:25.

Massa will go back out in sixth place. Very clever friend Jack so

:23:25.:23:34.

he can swing out of the way and saved another tenth of a second.

:23:34.:23:41.

Virgin Racing dropping out. Three Wales. There is the other one. --

:23:41.:23:46.

wheels. The wheel that has made a bid for freedom. Our first

:23:46.:23:56.
:23:56.:23:56.

retirement. Timo Glock. Arms waving, we are not ready. He has gone. Rule

:23:56.:24:06.
:24:06.:24:07.

number one, leaving the pit stop. Luckily the wheel it didn't make it

:24:07.:24:14.

onto the racetrack. Sebastian Vettel. RADIO: Serious gearbox

:24:14.:24:24.
:24:24.:24:29.

in the middle of a canter. Mark Webber is sniffing the chance of

:24:29.:24:37.

victory. A 2.3 seconds behind. used to synchronise better when you

:24:37.:24:42.

changed at peak revs and not short shifting. We are guessing what that

:24:42.:24:49.

problem might be. I am sure Ted Kravitz will find out as soon as

:24:49.:24:56.

you can. I am not sure if Red Bull will tell us too much. That is a

:24:56.:25:03.

Lotus with a gearbox problem. He is in the wrong gear. It seemed like

:25:03.:25:08.

he did a double shift. Possible to do. If you pull a paddle in the

:25:08.:25:15.

middle of the corner, it will shift up. So it that was an error from

:25:15.:25:21.

Bruno, it has cost him a place. a test car in June added that many

:25:21.:25:27.

times. Part of a front wing. That was hanging off the car earlier.

:25:27.:25:37.
:25:37.:25:39.

That is not in a good place. It is on the inside. There is the team

:25:39.:25:48.

principal for Renault. The damaged front wing. That is on the inside,

:25:48.:25:54.

off the racing line. Every player of Michael Schumacher coming back

:25:54.:26:01.

through the field. -- There is a replay. Passing Jarno Trulli for

:26:01.:26:08.

19th place. Schumacher had that puncher, along lap back to the pits.

:26:08.:26:18.
:26:18.:26:26.

Bruno Senna that's mother, observing her son out on that Grand

:26:26.:26:32.

Prix. Must be tremendous emotion for that family. Ted Kravitz.

:26:32.:26:38.

have come down to the Red Bull garage. There is potential for

:26:38.:26:41.

Sebastian Vettel to manage this. All the messages have been played

:26:41.:26:45.

out on the team radio and we have heard them. We know as much as all

:26:45.:26:52.

the people in the garage and the mechanics sitting there. RADIO:

:26:52.:27:02.
:27:02.:27:06.

give up their place to his team- mate. The people working

:27:06.:27:13.

frantically Arona telemetry pick. They are having a look. There are

:27:13.:27:17.

all these colours but a lot of red on the computer screens. We are

:27:17.:27:21.

only guessing befitted an overheating issue. Sounds like it

:27:21.:27:28.

is getting worse. Maldonado in the barriers there. I think I

:27:28.:27:33.

understood Sebastiaan Vettel say I will not hold him up. They have got

:27:33.:27:37.

about seven seconds over Fernando Alonso. Clearly whatever the

:27:37.:27:45.

problem is it is getting worse in that gearbox. What did you hear?

:27:45.:27:50.

was so focused on the Williams and the tyres at turn eight I missed

:27:50.:27:53.

the end of it. No question Sebastian at this stage is not

:27:53.:27:57.

going to get in the wake of the interest of the team. He doesn't

:27:57.:28:03.

know if his car will make it to the end of the race, Mark Webber, as I

:28:03.:28:07.

expect, on the entrance to turn seven, where Maldonado has parked

:28:07.:28:12.

his car, in a difficult position. If another car was to lose control,

:28:12.:28:16.

they need to try and recover that car. Wouldn't be this -- wouldn't

:28:16.:28:21.

this be a moment for a safety car? The Red Bull engineers discussing.

I expect to see Mark Webber passing Sebastian Vettel any time now.

has pulled out a little bit, if anything. I wonder if he said I

:28:37.:28:41.

will not fall behind. I would like to hear it again. Maybe we can

:28:41.:28:45.

transcribe that. I would rather the gearbox Blair would then give us

:28:45.:28:49.

this position right now. He is faster on this lap than Mark Webber.

:28:49.:28:57.

The gap is back-up. Now he let him through. -- he lets him through. A

:28:57.:29:01.

faster lap then let him through. Managing the situation, that

:29:01.:29:08.

confirms what you heard. I will fall behind. He gets the use of the

:29:09.:29:18.
:29:19.:29:24.

DRS, a little cheeky opening. What was not the greatest place to pull

:29:24.:29:34.
:29:34.:29:38.

that. Timor orders are allowed in Formula One now. -- Timor orders.

:29:38.:29:45.

Mark Webber leads the concrete. -- the Grand Prix. Can he take his

:29:45.:29:52.

first victory of the season? McLaren now, out with the harder

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:02.

tyre for Jenson Button of. It is the slower tyre. Maybe half a

:30:03.:30:08.

second a lap slower. Maybe he is just getting this out of the way at

:30:08.:30:11.

this stage of the race. Though Jensen did say it only in the

:30:11.:30:16.

weekend that he was happier with the balance would this harder tyre.

:30:16.:30:26.

But lap time is king. It is easy to make a fool of yourself in this pit

:30:26.:30:29.

lane, sweeping up around the inside of turn three. It would be very

:30:29.:30:37.

easy to crash. Barton is behind Felipe Massa having made that stop.

:30:37.:30:43.

-- Barton. We watched eagerly to see what kind of lap times Jenson

:30:43.:30:49.

Button cannot extract from this brand new set of tyres. -- can

:30:49.:30:59.
:30:59.:31:08.

extract. Soft tyres, a different strategy for Hamilton. That is why

:31:08.:31:12.

you can crash so easily. You have to get through a difficult left,

:31:12.:31:16.

down the hill, a right and a long left, then straight into the side

:31:16.:31:25.

of any body. He is behind Button still. But he is on a different

:31:25.:31:32.

tyre. This will be very interesting. McLaren have split their strategy.

:31:32.:31:42.
:31:42.:31:44.

Alonso pits. These men are waiting for their hero, Fernando Alonso.

:31:44.:31:50.

The softer tyres. He will have to stop again this afternoon. The same

:31:50.:32:00.
:32:00.:32:03.

for Hamilton. Button will not have to stop. But will he want to?

:32:03.:32:08.

nine is the corner that comes up and monks see you as you come out

:32:08.:32:18.
:32:18.:32:26.

of turn eight. That is the corner where he's done -- he spun. Sergio

:32:26.:32:36.
:32:36.:32:45.

Perez was running 12. He is down in 14th. Sutil has had two stops. It

:32:45.:32:54.

is game played by the Force India team. We can see in the data that

:32:54.:32:58.

we have a gearbox problem. There is nothing you can do out there to

:32:58.:33:05.

help. Just keep driving, keep going. They have all the fashion today.

:33:05.:33:14.

never rains but it pours. Lewis Hamilton also nursing a box of cogs

:33:14.:33:23.

that do not really fancy 71 laps of the Interlagos circuit. Vettel is

:33:23.:33:32.

maintaining the gap at 2.6 seconds. Alonso has just done his fastest

:33:33.:33:42.

lap of the race. Button, as we suggested earlier on, has not

:33:42.:33:51.

caught Felipe Massa. His Button lining up for a pass on the

:33:51.:33:57.

Ferrari? It does not look like it at this stage. He is certainly

:33:57.:34:07.
:34:07.:34:07.

hounding Felipe Massa. He has only done one stop, of course. Felipe

:34:08.:34:15.

Massa is up three places having had a one stop. Jensen has used both

:34:15.:34:22.

kinds of tyre, which she has to under the regulations. Mark Webber

:34:22.:34:26.

pits. They put on another set of soft tyres, so we will have to stop

:34:26.:34:36.
:34:36.:34:38.

again. It is the restocks for Mark Webber. -- Three stops. Jensen is

:34:38.:34:48.
:34:48.:34:58.

on a different strategy compared to Hamilton and Mark Webber. Rubens

:34:58.:35:08.
:35:08.:35:08.

Barrichello has been lapped down in 15th. Jenson Button sales down the

:35:08.:35:16.

upside with his real winger opened. Job done and off he goes. An easy

:35:16.:35:22.

pass. He will have enjoyed that, having not enjoyed Alonso going

:35:22.:35:28.

round the outside of him in turn six. Metal beads. He is going to

:35:28.:35:35.

pit stop. It is so nice to see the pit lane from the commentary box.

:35:35.:35:44.

It is essential indeed. That sounded like it did not want to go

:35:44.:35:53.

into neutral. The same strategy as Mark Webber, Hamilton and Alonso.

:35:53.:36:00.

Where is Mark Webber? He is well in the lead. They are on a three

:36:00.:36:05.

stopper strategy this afternoon. We expect them to come in Again around

:36:06.:36:12.

lap 54. Anything in that region. Maybe even later if they can make

:36:12.:36:16.

these tyres last and give themselves the shortest run

:36:16.:36:22.

possible on the harder tyres. It is not holding Jenson Button back. He

:36:22.:36:26.

is comparing very favourably with the Felipe Massa. Now has more to

:36:26.:36:36.
:36:36.:36:38.

it is catching Felipe Massa as well. -- Hamilton is catching. Felipe

:36:39.:36:44.

Massa must have had a problem of turn three. Jensen was out of the

:36:44.:36:51.

slipstream so early bus-stop he must have lifted. Must have scared

:36:51.:36:58.

himself around there. As you say, Dr rest does not account for all of

:36:58.:37:04.

that extra speed. These two have come together five times this year.

:37:04.:37:08.

Do you think Lewis will give him a slightly wider berth. A I don't

:37:08.:37:12.

think so. This is clearly struggling a little bit with the

:37:12.:37:18.

balance of the car around this track -- Lewis Hamilton is

:37:18.:37:25.

struggling. Crucially, he is not getting close enough at the end of

:37:25.:37:29.

the lap to put himself in a position to capitalise in turn up

:37:30.:37:39.
:37:40.:37:46.

for. -- Turn four. He is just too far back. The car is winding up on

:37:46.:37:51.

the exit of turn three. Losing so much speed. He is probably having

:37:51.:37:58.

to lift in turn three, where Hamilton can stay flat. He does not

:37:58.:38:06.

have the issue in turn 12, which is more than exhilaration corner. --

:38:06.:38:10.

of an acceleration corner. Ferrari strategy is all about

:38:10.:38:20.
:38:20.:38:29.

beating McLaren, rather than trying to win the race. Quite sensibly so.

:38:29.:38:36.

Maybe the opportunity that Lewis is waiting for. Felipe Massa gets a

:38:36.:38:41.

psychological gold star on his star chart from his Engineer. McLaren

:38:41.:38:46.

and in the pit lane. They are fed up by losing time behind the

:38:46.:38:52.

Ferrari. They have lost 7.5 seconds to Button. They were quite close,

:38:52.:38:58.

if you remember. On the go at the medium compound tyres. He can now

:38:58.:39:03.

drive to the end of the Grand Prix. They have obviously seen a nice

:39:03.:39:07.

slop they can put Louis back into on the racetrack, where he will not

:39:07.:39:17.
:39:17.:39:18.

get too much traffic -- put Hamilton back on to the racetrack.

:39:18.:39:25.

Sutil is now ahead of Hamilton. They must have a bigger issue that

:39:25.:39:31.

we are not aware rub. That is very early to do the third stop and try

:39:31.:39:39.

to go to the end on the hard tyres. Could we see a 4th stop? We are

:39:39.:39:46.

watching Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel trading fastest laps.

:39:46.:39:55.

interesting thing for me is the fight we have for 6th, 7th and 8.

:39:55.:40:01.

As it stands, Adrian Sutil is absolutely lighting up the midfield.

:40:01.:40:07.

He is now in 7th position and he needs three more points, or

:40:07.:40:11.

certainly two over Petrov, to finish 9th in the championship,

:40:11.:40:16.

which would be a huge result for that team and massive going into

:40:16.:40:23.

next season. Felipe Massa has got the medium compound tyres. Another

:40:23.:40:29.

man driving to the end of the race. Michael Schumacher is hunting down

:40:29.:40:36.

Heikki Kovalainen. Felipe Massa, just in front of your Lewis

:40:36.:40:42.

Hamilton. McLaren did not manage to use the new tyres to get in front

:40:42.:40:48.

of Felipe Massa. The longer you keep him behind you, the greater

:40:48.:40:52.

chance of beating him bus-stop they have certainly got a great chance

:40:52.:40:58.

of beating him now. We have a serious gearbox problem. Do

:40:58.:41:01.

everything you can do safety car. The objective is to stay in front

:41:02.:41:07.

of Alonso. He is getting fat called because he just did his fastest lap

:41:08.:41:17.
:41:18.:41:22.

of the Grand Prix. -- getting that call. It is the same message that

:41:22.:41:29.

he has been told a few times. It would be nice to be a bit more

:41:29.:41:34.

specific. It is all fine and well saying short shrift, but they have

:41:34.:41:39.

a light display it in there. Like a Christmas tree. They also have

:41:39.:41:46.

audio, which largely the drivers to change when they hear the beat.

:41:46.:41:51.

Hamilton is going to park the car. We heard about a gearbox problem at

:41:51.:42:01.
:42:01.:42:06.

Deauville on for Lewis Hamilton. -- Early up on. The gearbox has gone.

:42:06.:42:11.

He has to find a sensible place to park this, because he is not going

:42:11.:42:21.

to make it back to the pit stop. He is aiming for an orange marker.

:42:21.:42:26.

closest I have ever come to dying was on that corner driving for

:42:26.:42:36.
:42:36.:42:37.

McLaren. My car broke down in that piece of track. Another car came

:42:37.:42:44.

flying over my head and hit my head. Is that when you went on to the

:42:44.:42:47.

radio and said you were unconscious? That is another

:42:47.:42:52.

English driver you are thinking about! Hamilton becomes the third

:42:52.:43:02.
:43:02.:43:09.

retirement. Oh, dear. Forsberg just steams up the inside. Fantastic

:43:09.:43:14.

stuff. That is a clever boy. Someone who knows this racetrack.

:43:14.:43:19.

It is a very long run into that apex. Although Sutil clearly had

:43:19.:43:24.

the track position on the outside, I think we have seen Rosberg do

:43:24.:43:31.

that before. He is fighting well for that position. That is the

:43:32.:43:38.

battle for 6 and 7th. I fear his defence is going to be futile. It

:43:38.:43:48.
:43:48.:43:49.

is a different strategy. Rosberg has only done two stops. I think

:43:49.:43:54.

Sutil thought he had got the job done. Then Rosberg came back

:43:54.:43:59.

through. That was good stuff. Great driving from both of them. Nico

:43:59.:44:05.

Rosberg, the last couple of races, since he signed his contract, has

:44:05.:44:09.

been really aggressive, which is exactly what the Mercedes team will

:44:09.:44:14.

want to see. He showed Michael Schumacher what he thought of his

:44:14.:44:24.
:44:24.:44:33.

will go right, of course. Got a little fright on his way past. Good

:44:33.:44:40.

straight line speed from the Force India. McLaren are in the pit lane.

:44:40.:44:50.
:44:50.:44:50.

Button in. That has got all hallmarks of a team that were not

:44:50.:44:56.

expecting a driver. Gone on the hard tyres again, we thought he

:44:56.:45:03.

might get to the end. For Nando Alonso in the pit lane. -- Fernando

:45:03.:45:11.

Alonso. Lewis is back in the pits. Lee

:45:11.:45:15.

McKenzie has found him. disappointing end to a difficult

:45:15.:45:22.

season. An interesting year. A today I give it my all, I felt like

:45:22.:45:28.

I enjoyed the race. A little bit unfortunate for us and the team we

:45:28.:45:33.

were not able to get the extra points. But I enjoyed racing out

:45:33.:45:37.

there, challenging Felipe Massa at the end, it was hoping I would get

:45:37.:45:42.

him but the gearbox problem came on quite early so I was struggling.

:45:42.:45:50.

Mark Webber is coming in for his final stop. The hard tyres go on.

:45:50.:45:54.

Excellent stop by the Red Bull guys. How much will it mean for the

:45:54.:45:58.

Australian after this season he has had getting well and truly beaten

:45:58.:46:06.

by Sebastian Vettel to get a win he has so craved? The Red Bull

:46:06.:46:12.

mechanics coming out again, for Sebastian Vettel, for his third and

:46:12.:46:22.
:46:22.:46:23.

final stop. There he is. Into the box. This could be the final pit-

:46:23.:46:27.

stop of the year for the Red Bull team. They have achieved everything

:46:27.:46:35.

they need to this afternoon. Lap 60. Mark Webber will retake the lead

:46:35.:46:43.

again. Already half way down the back straight. Lewis watches on,

:46:43.:46:48.

sadly. 5th in the world championship. His reward for a

:46:48.:46:53.

season with many highs and lows. Look how close it is between Jenson

:46:53.:47:00.

Button and Fernando Alonso. Button beautifully in the slipstream. Will

:47:00.:47:06.

he get a chance? Alonso thinks he might. He has gone defensive.

:47:06.:47:10.

Batten down the outside. Alonso release is the brake pedal to

:47:10.:47:16.

reclaim the corner. He will be so much faster. Patten will be so much

:47:16.:47:21.

faster after turn 3, the DRS will open now. Jenson Button should have

:47:21.:47:26.

mile straight-line speed. He has got the job done. Up into third

:47:26.:47:32.

place, a brilliant driving. The McLaren team thoroughly enjoyed

:47:32.:47:41.

that. So they should. Jenson Button, third. A replay of him right up

:47:41.:47:45.

under the slipstream as he comes off turn three. Alonso goes

:47:45.:47:55.

defensive. Pop open that DRS, release the drag from the car.

:47:55.:48:02.

That move really started in turn one. He had to go defensive, slow

:48:02.:48:07.

through two and three and passes and finally. On the clean side of

:48:07.:48:13.

the racetrack. As we watch Mark Webber, as Sebastian Vettel,

:48:13.:48:23.
:48:23.:48:27.

running wide in 105. -- in turn 5. 11.6 seconds ahead. Mark Webber.

:48:27.:48:33.

The quickest lap, Mark, we don't need any more. He loves to take

:48:33.:48:41.

this tokens away from his team-mate. He would be determined. Just gone a

:48:41.:48:50.

bit faster. He did another one. Into the final lap. Mark Webber, 35

:48:50.:48:55.

years old. The Australian who has had a difficult season, just

:48:55.:49:01.

watched his team mate clean-up, finally is going to get his reward.

:49:01.:49:06.

It will still only put him 4th in the world championship, two point

:49:06.:49:09.

behind Fernando Alonso, but I don't think he will care when a little

:49:09.:49:19.

bit about that. -- one little bit. Two more corners to go before the

:49:19.:49:26.

final left-hand corner to climb the hill. Mark Webber is had been for

:49:26.:49:32.

his 7th from prix victory. -- heading for. He has been a loyal

:49:32.:49:38.

servant to read all. They have very much to return at favour today --

:49:38.:49:42.

Red Bull. His car has run faultlessly. He has made the most

:49:42.:49:49.

of it. He heads to the line. Mark Webber wins the Brazilian Cornbury

:49:49.:49:56.

comfortably as it turns out -- Grand Prix. He can head into the

:49:56.:50:00.

winter with some satisfaction, self-belief, and get on with his

:50:00.:50:06.

programme. Sebastian Vettel in second place, despite nursing at

:50:06.:50:13.

that gearbox problem pretty much for the entire race. Jenson Button

:50:13.:50:19.

in third place. 10.6 seconds behind Sebastiaan Vettel as the coasts

:50:19.:50:26.

across the line. Alonso and Philippe a master, fourth and 5th -

:50:26.:50:31.

- Felipe Massa. Because they were lapped Adrian Sutil is already sick,

:50:31.:50:41.
:50:41.:50:45.

was their 7th. Kobayashi is 9th. RADIO: Stop the car at 101. -- turn

:50:45.:50:55.
:50:55.:50:55.

one. Presumably for fuel. Mark Webber finally gets a victory in

:50:55.:51:00.

this 19 race season. It has been tough, exciting, great working with

:51:00.:51:04.

you David in the commentary box, thoroughly enjoyed that. Mark

:51:04.:51:14.
:51:14.:51:17.

Webber is certainly going to enjoy victory for Red Bull. They were

:51:17.:51:22.

dominant, nobody was getting near them. Jenson Button was the closest,

:51:22.:51:32.
:51:32.:51:39.

that has been the season -- story at the very last moment Mark

:51:39.:51:49.

:52:02.:52:05.

Constructors' Championship ends like it starts with Renault holding

:52:05.:52:15.
:52:15.:52:22.

important to them giving them money for the next season. Let's look

:52:22.:52:26.

back and relive some of the best moments. What did the drivers make

:52:26.:52:32.

of today? Great in the car, great to finish with, three fastest laps.

:52:32.:52:37.

The feeling with the car, it hasn't been the greatest but to finish on

:52:37.:52:44.

a high like that, it was nice. The team have worked incredibly hard.

:52:44.:52:54.
:52:54.:52:55.

A phenomenal season, everybody in Red Bull can be very proud. A

:52:55.:52:59.

season where we will look back to and say, great to be part of that

:52:59.:53:05.

and to have been part of that. We just haven't had the outright

:53:05.:53:10.

pace to fight rebel. Fair play to them, a great job, congratulations

:53:10.:53:18.

-- to fight Red Bull. They have been dominant. We have got to start

:53:18.:53:22.

the season stronger, something we have to do next year. We will make

:53:22.:53:28.

it hard for them in 2012. It has been a good year, along year,

:53:28.:53:33.

disappointed it is over but a well deserved rest for everybody,

:53:33.:53:36.

recharge their batteries, spend time with their families and come

:53:36.:53:40.

back fighting. I want to say thank you to them all, it has been a

:53:40.:53:44.

great year, an ambition to drawing up Formula One and you cannot

:53:44.:53:50.

believe how happy and. -- to drive a Formula One.

:53:50.:53:57.

We look ahead to 2012. These cars are already defunct.

:53:57.:54:02.

They have provided success for the teams will go into museums. The

:54:02.:54:06.

others will probably get crushed. An incredible journey.

:54:06.:54:12.

We have really enjoyed ourselves. The season belongs to only one man,

:54:12.:54:16.

Sebastian Vettel, and Red Bull. They have set the mark and the job

:54:16.:54:20.

next year for everybody is to match Despite him winning the

:54:20.:54:24.

championship, we still had Fernando Alonso as the benchmark, the most

:54:24.:54:29.

recent double world champion. We have changed that order. Sebastian

:54:29.:54:34.

Vettel is the new benchmark. Came off the back of winning that first

:54:34.:54:38.

title. He has just been incredible. In qualifying, race performances

:54:39.:54:43.

and set a high bar. I will tell you the name, you

:54:43.:54:47.

review their season put up the Curran.

:54:47.:54:54.

Must try harder -- McLaren. A very average start of the year. Six

:54:54.:55:00.

victories. They struggled not just with development but with the

:55:00.:55:04.

drivers. Jenson Button seemed to grow in confidence. Lewis Hamilton

:55:04.:55:08.

seemed to lose his way. Ferrari.

:55:08.:55:12.

We expect more. They have been part of the world championships is the

:55:12.:55:17.

very beginning. One victory at Silverstone. Based showed signs,

:55:17.:55:21.

just need to find a bit more and everything will change. They are

:55:21.:55:26.

close enough to be contenders next year.

:55:26.:55:30.

Mercedes will want more next year, a Renault, started strongly and

:55:30.:55:34.

disappeared. Force India, Sauber, Toro Rosso. The midfield was

:55:34.:55:39.

exciting. A lot more strength and depth than

:55:39.:55:42.

we have previously seen. Any one of those teams could break out into

:55:42.:55:50.

the big league. The most likely his Mercedes. They have the winning DNA.

:55:50.:55:53.

In the interesting battle with Force India, Sauber, Toro Rosso,

:55:53.:55:57.

Williams, will we see them come back? You will be with us every

:55:58.:56:02.

step of the way for 2012. A indeed, looking forward to it.

:56:02.:56:07.

There you go, Sebastian Vettel's year. There Paul's year. Another

:56:07.:56:11.

great year for the fans watching Formula One and we will see you in
