… quali & race of the season. So, will Alonso reign as the Youngest Double Champion? Ahh, time will tell, and that time will be tomorrow or early Monday morning for those living in this part of the world.

The 18th & final race will be held in Brasil, one of the toughest race tracks to drive on especially because of it’s bumpy surface and even a very skillful driver would need to be very alert  with great hands control to manoeuvre an F1 car.  (I’m sure, I’d drive my car into the barrier if I’m placed in such a situation!) What is even more challenging for the drivers is that this is one of the very few race cuircuits which runs in an anti-clockwise direction. More left turns (9) to right (4) would  pose much pressure to a driver. No wonder, F1 is a sport only for the FITTEST.

There are a few questions still to be answered. It’s still hanging in the air. I, for one, wonder if the silver arrow will win this final race. This year’s car is a far cry from last year swift & speedy McLaren. Driver errors and mechanical failures have  hampered them from any chance of  winning a race. This must be a sad, sad year for them, a season to forget. With that, I hope they have made so much progress in the development of next year’s race car since it will be revealed to the public in January. Let’s not disappoint Alonso & prove to Kimi that he has not been missed! ;P

With the weather being unpredictable lately, who are we to blame but ourselves for the depletion of the ozone layer due to our own selfishness & which has lead to the sufferings of others, there is no clear winner for Sunday’s race, a Michelin or Bridgestone runner. Michelin a winner on wet while the latter on dry. Mishaps may occur to anyone, so the race is open but the pressure will be on both Schumi & Alonso. Who is the stronger one amongst these two? Who is more resilient? Both has the hunger to win the race for themselves & the team but sometimes one would have to rely on pure LUCK.

p/s Is Mother Nature livid with the way we treat her beautiful abode? It seems she is, torrential rain have caused havoc yesterday evening as water level rose and flooded roads in and around the city. Cars were damaged trees were uprooted. Some may have lost their belongings.

But, the haze has not disappeared! Humm, it has not rained today!
