What a race!

What an incredible finish to the formula 1 season! With Lewis passing Glock on the final corner of the final lap to get the vital 5th place he needed to win the world championship. Amazing stuff. The most exciting finish to a race ever. A great end to a great season.

Massa’s driven well this year – to have come so close must be heartbreaking. But just as Lewis could claim to have been unlucky last year, Massa can feel the same this year – it just wasn’t to be his year.

Interesting factoid: the last British world champion, Damon Hill, won in 1996 – the last year formula 1 was shown on BBC. Since then coverage has been on ITV – but this is their last year, it returns to BBC next year.
