Lifesize Lego Ferrari F1 car. They’ve cheated with the wheels though…
“Coming in from the airport, the grim reality of Sao Paulo hits you just as it does every year. Miles and miles of unremarkable urban sprawl and a city far too concerned with making ends meet to display much fervour for the biggest race of the year. But then, when we get to Interlagos on Friday, we will know what this means to the locals who will be there in their thousands, beating their drums and urging Felipe on to the country’s first championship since Senna’s last one in 1991.”
Juan Pablo Montoya on the title-decider: “I think Felipe will probably win the race. And if I was Lewis, I wouldn’t be anywhere close to him. If Felipe comes anywhere near him, I would let him by.”

Robert Kubica was in second place on the grid, Nico Rosberg was fourth and Lewis [Hamilton] was sixth. They were all driving for factory teams with money no object while I put Paul’s car together myself and drove it down from Bathgate in a lorry to save money. We didn’t have a back-up team: I was Paul’s mechanic, his manager, his everything.
‘Paul’s not like these guys, he’s done it the hard way.’”
