F1 judgement day – Who is the 2007 champion?

October 22, 2007

From BBC:

Ferrari’s Felipe Massa sits on pole, while team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, who can also win the title, is third

Meanwhile, Germany’s Ralf Schumacher is given a farewell present from his Toyota team ahead of his final race for them

A dramatic start sees Raikkonen overtake Hamilton going into the first corner, but Massa retains the lead

However, all the action is happening behind where Alonso pressures Hamilton and has the better line for turn three

And the Spaniard goes through, but Hamilton unnecessarily tries to re-take at corner four, runs wide and drops to eighth

Hamilton suffers further problems on lap eight when he struggles to find his gears and drops back to 18th place

Massa and Raikkonen go away at the front while Hamilton scythes his way through the field to take 10th on lap 33

But the British driver’s day takes another turn for the worse when Raikkonen takes the lead after a pitstop on lap 53

If Raikkonen wins the race, Hamilton must finish at least fifth to stop the Finnish driver from taking his first world title

And the Ferrari driver does take the chequered flag but he faces an anxious wait to find out if he has done enough

Alonso can snatch the title if he finishes second, but the Spaniard comes home over a minute adrift in third

And Hamilton can only finish seventh, meaning Raikkonen wins the title by one point from the British driver

It is a sixth victory of the season for the 28-year-old who wastes no time in starting the celebrations

Wowowowow…!!!!! It’s unbelievable. Raikonen won the title. It’s one of the hundred possibilities.

The score before the race:

  1. Hamilton 107
  2. Alonso 103
  3. Raikonen 100

Score from the race:

  1. Raikonen 10
  2. Alonso 6
  3. Hamilton 2

So the final score:

  1. Raikonen 110
  2. Alonso 109
  3. Hamilton 109

Is this the greatest season of F1?
