In winning Sebastian Vettel equaled the record of Alberto Ascari of nine wins in a year, however Sebastian Vettel stands alone in history of Formula One as the only driver with nine consecutive wins.

Sebastian Vettel also matched Michael Schumacher’s record of 13 victories in a year.

Vettel’s Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber was second in his final F1 race. Fernando Alonso of Ferrari was third.
Vettel, who had already wrapped up a fourth straight F1 title, was overtaken by Nico Rosberg of Mercedes at the start but regained the lead on the second lap and cruised to his second victory in Brazil, and 39th of his career.

Jenson Button was fourth for McLaren’s best finish of the season. Rosberg was fifth and Mexico’s Sergio Perez finished sixth after starting 19th in his final race with McLaren.
“Yes, we did it,” Vettel said on his radio before his now-traditional donut celebration of spinning the car.
The win capped an impressive season by Vettel, who had already broken Schumacher’s 2004 mark of seven straight wins in the same season last week at the United States GP.

It was the first time this weekend that drivers raced on a dry track at Interlagos after the three practice sessions and qualifying were run in wet conditions. Light rain fell near the end of the race but it wasn’t enough to significantly affect the track conditions.
Lewis Hamilton, who had a flat right rear tire on his Mercedes after contact with Valtteri Bottas of Williams, finished ninth. Hamilton received a drive through penalty for causing the collision.
Mercedes was still able to hold on to second place in the constructors’ championship, finishing ahead of Ferrari and Lotus. Red Bull had already clinched the title.
Home-crowd favorite Felipe Massa, in his final race with Ferrari before joining Williams, finished a disappointing seventh after receiving a drive-through penalty for illegally crossing a pit line while running fourth. Massa will be replaced by world champion Kimi Raikkonen next year.

Vettel, Rosberg, Alonso It’s Showtime At Brazilian Grand Prix 2013

Sebastian Vettel won his 45th pole position for Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix, his ninth success of the season.

Red Bull’s world champion, who is looking to equal Michael Schumacher’s record of 13 race wins in the same season, beat Nico Rosberg of Mercedes by three-quarters of a second in rain-delayed qualifying. Behind Rosberg on the grid will be Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and the other Red Bull and Mercedes cars, driven by Mark Webber and Lewis Hamilton respectively.

In the first session, the surprise package was Heikki Kovalainen, who put in a great lap to finish P5. But in his last weekend with Williams, Pastor Maldonado failed to make it to Q2, along with Esteban Gutiérrez, Charles Pic, Giedo Van der Garde, Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton.

In Q2, which was topped by Romain Grosjean, followed by Vettel, the six who failed to make it to the top-10 shootout were Kovalainen, Paul di Resta, Valtteri Bottas, Sergio Pérez – who crashed out on Turn Five – Jenson Button and Adrian Sutil.

It was the fourth time this season that McLaren had failed to get a car in Q3. This could be the first time that McLaren fail to win a podium in a season since 1980 and the first time since 1966 that they have failed to reach the top four.

Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel has admitted to having a ruthless streak when he gets behind the wheel of a Formula One car. While Lewis Hamilton does not think he will be able to pull off a repeat of last year’s US Grand Prix and beat Sebastian Vettel to victory on Sunday. Sergio Perez of Mexico got two day notice from McLaren that they will replace him next year came as a shock. Then the gossip about the the boss of Formula One and his legal problems fills the paddock.

Against the backdrop of this drama at United States Grand Prix 2013, learning how many girls enjoy trying on lingerie especially during the taping of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 a day before, in Austin, Texas the David Bowie Is Around The World film documentary let girls just have fun. Some of the girls will be on the grid as gird girls for the race on Sunday. Each girl got bag full of lingerie, four girls all filmmakers in Austin directed the unscripted documentary film allowing the girls to do whatever they wanted to the music of David Bowie. Where were some of the formula one drivers on Thursday night of filming? you will just have to wait till the three year film project is completed.

Best quote of the day; Sebastian Vettel said it was important to be ruthless at times and also quoted the late great formula one driver Ayrton Senna by saying “if you see a gap you have to go for it”. It’s what the girls did last night they just went for it. Who would have thought that music of David Bowie could make you go wild, or could it have been bag full of lingerie.

Sergio Perez – Dangerous And Dirty Team-Mate

Perez and Button Jenson Button was left raging with his McLaren team-mate, describing the Mexican as ‘dirty’ and ‘dangerous’ given his antics throughout a Bahrain Grand Prix won comfortably by Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel.
Urged by team principal Martin Whitmarsh to ‘toughen up’ following the previous weekend’s race in China, Perez went too far in Sakhir, with Button bearing the brunt of the 23-year-old’s aggression.

“I didn’t feel it was the cleanest racing with Checo and myself. I think it is great that we are allowed to race [by McLaren] and that is fantastic. But into Turn Four we were wheel banging and that’s not normally the way I like to race. Fairplay though to Checo he had a great race and scored some great points for the team. That is what we will take away from the weekend.”

As for his own afternoon, Button admitted it wasn’t the best: “Today wasn’t brilliant for me,” he continued. “Okay, the race was a lot of fun, but I didn’t get the result I wanted. I used up my tyres fending off Checo. There was a lot of action out there, and as I say I wasn’t really able to conserve my tyres as a result. That was partly because I had to work my way back through after my second pitstop, when I’d been fighting with Romain [Grosjean] too.

“But there was a lot of clean racing out there – although as I say Checo was a bit tough, which was a little unusual.” Jenson told my Spy Girl.

Mexico, Mexico, Mexico at United States Grand Prix 2012


More Formula One visitors are expected to come to Austin from Mexico than from any other foreign country, said Steve Alberts, communications manager at the Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau. Four charter flights from Mexico were set to arrive in Austin carrying about 500 fans, said Jim Halbrook, a spokesman for Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and more Mexican fans are flying to other Texas cities.

Something President Obama already knew that United States of America is changing with growing Latin population. With Sergio Perez, in the race it get’s people from Mexico very excited.

At Circuit of the Americas, the first track purposely built for Formula One in the United States, spokeswoman Ali Putnam said that 110,000 tickets were sold and that 15 percent went to non-American buyers, many of them from Mexico.

David Cantu of Monterrey, Mexico told me he likes Perez because, “He’s Mexican.”

Reborn In The USA – United States Grand Prix Formula 1

Let me put it bluntly! There is nothing like the United States of America. Keep Monaco, and Abu Dhabi, but the USA is the richest market in the world, and it can change the sport of Formula 1 forever if it’s a hit. This time they did it right by building a track.

For that reason everyone out here is getting pretty excited as the weekend approaches; downtown Austin is buzzing, the team’s hospitality units are groaning and the marketing men are salivating almost as much as the drivers. I can see why: the Circuit of the Americas looks mouth-watering. This place is fun. Come on this is Texas, with music, food, fun, it’s the good old USA.

The Circuit of the Americas is like a ‘supercircuit’; an amalgamation of favourite corners from other tracks around the world. I have been critical of Hermann Tilke-designed circuits before but he has really listened to drivers this time.

American race fans may be more interested by what is happening in Homestead, Florida, this weekend — where the Nascar season, in an unfortunate scheduling clash, also reaches its climax — but in this land of opportunity I am hopeful that Formula One will grab its big chance and leave our hosts wanting more.

It’s time to Rock’N Roll.
