I haven’t done an F1 Wednesday post in such a long time! Mainly because I have found this season to be rather boring! But last weekend we managed to watch the Brazil Grand Prix live on TV (and not hours later like normal).
It was rather action packed what with the rain, spins and crashes! But the most heart breaking crash of all was Felipe Massa’s crash. Really got me in the feels!
Felipe Massa is/was a Brazilian Formula 1 driver. Over the years he has driven for Ferrari and Williams. During 2016 he announced he was retiring from Formula 1 at the end of the season. Such a shame because if someone deserved to be world champion more than anyone it was him! * He cruelly missed out on the World Championship in 2008 – another moment that got you in the feels!
* other than Mark Webber obvisouly.
So for Massa to crash out in his last home Grand Prix was just as cruel! But the way he handled it was so humble. He walked back to the pits carrying his Brazilian flag and was clearly emotional. The mechanics of Mercedes, Ferrari and Williams all came out of the garages to stand as he walked by. I was watching it and crying.
Apart from being an emotional race for Massa, Hamilton won which means the title goes down to the wire. Will it be Hamilton or Rosberg’s year?
Did you watch the race? Please tell me you got emotional as well!
