Everyone agrees that 2010 has for sure been an epic season so far and now we’re presented with the two final races with still five, yes five drivers in the running to be 2010 World Champion. Alonso is sitting prettiest at the top, but drivers have lost the title, even with a greater points lead at this point so it’s not all plain-sailing for the Spaniard. Red Bull are quick around Interlargos – the Brazilian GP circuit, but McLaren are also looking forward to it and this weekend is pretty much do-or-die for the British 2009 World Champion Jenson Button.
If your favourite driver isn’t one of these top five gunning for the title, not to worry because the Brazilian GP is traditionally nothing but a truly thrilling grand prix – the track is quick, twisty has massive fluctuations in gradient and has been the playground that has decided more than it’s fair share of championship showdowns – it’s sure to be corker!
So when’s it on the telly box – at the perfect time, late afternoon on a Sunday, so you’ve got most of the day to mow the lawn, read the papers, take the kids out, clean the car, sweep the kitchen, re-tile the bathroom [insert your stereotypical Sunday activity here] before sitting down to a grand prix before a late Sunday roast, perfik!
