The Winner, The Champion, and The Farewell

Formula 1 season 2006 just over, the closing final race (Brazil, Interlagos) was one of the most historic moment for me in this century.

The Winner

Felipe Massa won the race on his home soil after 13 years long waited, the first for a Brazilian on home soil since the late Ayrton Senna won in 1993. The cheer from his own country crowd like Brazil won the FIFA World Cup.

The World Champion & Farewell to Team Renault

Fernando Alonso who took the chequered flag in second position and clinched his second straight title while Renault wrapped up the constructors’ championship.

The Farewell

It was a very tough race for Michael Schumacher for his final Formula 1 racing career. He started very well until his left rear tyre deflated. After changed the new set of tyre he was down to 17th place, but end of the race he manage to climb to 4th place. What a solid drive for this greatest Formula 1 driver, he sets the fastest race record for the race too.

It was also the last race of Kimi Raikkonen for Team Mclaren, he will joins Team Ferrari next season to replace Michael Schumacher as his successor.

My thought...

It's hard for me to accept the formation for next season (year), I started support Team Mclaren since 1988 when Senna-Prost these two greatest Formula 1 drivers in the history together in the team. Currently my favorite driver is Kimi Raikkonen, and he is leaving Mclaren to join Ferrari for the next season. The most least favorite driver for me is Fernando Alonso and he'll joins Team Mclaren for the next season. I don't know how to support the Kimi with my least favorite and how to support Mclaren with my least favorite driver?

Michael Schumacher & Kimi Raikkonen

Alright, Fernando Alonso is a great driver, but he won the 2 times world champion by luck. Last season (2005), there were a tight challenge between Kimi and Fernando, but Kimi always had the bad luck with the car's reliability. If not Kimi was the world champion without any doubt. This season (2006) also the same situation but with M.Schumacher and Fernando. The bad luck for M.Schumacher for the last 2 races blowed his 8th world championship title away.

Racing is racing, we have to consider the driver, the machine, the tyre, the team and the luck. If less one of it, you won't win the race. I just wondering why Fernando Alonso have such a good luck all the way? How long it will last for him? Why Kimi Raikkonen always have the bad luck?

Kimi Raikkonen in action

This season Mclaren really disappointed me with win-less record. The last time they were win-less was back to year 1996. This season their car really uncompetitive with Ferrari and Renault. They really lack of pace and yet the 'reliability' issue still can't solve it in since Mika Hakkinen was in the team.

Finally, I really wish Kimi Raikkonen all the best for his new team and hopefully he will wins the world champion title next season. He really got the skills and very cool during the race. For Mclaren, I hope they can win the constructors' championship title back.

Kimi Raikonen

Happy Holiday~~~!!!

Hey dude, I know exactly how you feel. Mclaren supporter here but not Alonso's. :D I feel he's turning out to be another M.Schumi - cocky and arrogant. Not sure who to support next season, maybe Toyota! LOL!
