    For me it’s been a very emotional weekend. I enjoyed this race, but it was more than just the season finale. It was the end of an era for me, personally, a driver I’ve supported since 2007/2008, during my final stages of secondary school and all my university stint (which is still going). It brings back all the memories you have of that period, those long lasting seasons, full of joy and dissapointment aswell. Specially 2010.

    It’s fantastic how much your passion turns your mood on and off, and everytime Mark did well, it was all about mondays reading all the articles about it on the newspaper, reading it all, from the press conferences to the team’s press releases. Every timetable, your eyes switch right away to your driver: “Mark Webber”. And now that’s gone. One doesn’t expect it to last forever, but it’ll be super weird for a while.

    I know he wasn’t the best driver on planet, but it’s something you can’t explain. It ends on high, tho, and that’s good. Thank you so so much, Mark ! You were part of the reason why I woke up early every sunday for the race.

  2. 8 and a good drive from Jenson too… well done Seb and a good finish for Mark too

  3. The first 40 laps were ace then it all picked up again when mark took is helmet off. Oh, was that after the race?

    Good race, but not spectacular. Had some exciting parts, like the start, and towards the end with the collision and rush to get into the pits, but as I said, just a good race.

    Happy for Jenson and McLaren to end the season on somewhat of a high.

    Voted 9 for 9 in a row ;)

    Gave it a 1. Basically over after the first 5 laps.

    Not really a race, just follow the leader. Only exciting because it was the last race of the year.

    7 Great first half of the race, second half desperately needed the rain. Sad Mark is leaving, overall happy to see the back of an at times soporific F1 season (especially compared to 2012 and 2010), hopefully another 10 years until we see one as dull as that.

    From my point of view, it was the best race of the season. It had quite nice non-DRS overtakes here in Brazil as well. Overall, you cannot expect more to be honest apart from having a title deciding race here.

    Additionally the moment where Webber pulled his helmet off during the victory lap was very special too as it rarely happens at all.

  9. Lewis doing his hard done by speech on TV again… and what with Eddie Jordan implying that Seb should have given the race to Webber, the BBC coverage ends its prejudiced coverage again… I’m not a fan of Coulthard but he keeps it sane for me

    A refreshing race from the monotonous 2013 season . Let me whip out my checklist.
    1) overall excitement – check – not fantastic but not dull at any point
    2) No tyre saving-triple check
    3) No team orders or tyres bursting or any unfair business-check
    4) Battle for the lead – half check – at least at the start .
    5)unpredictable positions , spins , mayhem -check

    Overall – 8/10 . As someone put it more eloquently , not the best Brazillian gp but definitely entertaining .

    between a 6 and 7… good opening start to the race but stretched out into not much, shame the rain never came would have really made it interesting

  12. Tomsk (@tomsk) said on 24th November 2013, 18:08

    7, not great by Interlagos standards, but fairly action-packed for a 2013 race.
    Great battle between Massa and Hamilton, booooo to the meddling steward who broke it up.
    Boo to the weather too, for raining on the cameras but not the track – and good riddance to the unravelling tyres and gutless V8s, a poor imitation of the engines that came before them.

    5. Average. Nothing more, nothing less. Good opening 10-20 laps, would have given it a 7/8 if that’s how it remained. But, the last 40 or so laps were just dreary, dull and how anyone can give those more than a 2/3 is beyond me, and how it can score more than a 6/10 overall confuses the hell of out me, it really does.

  14. Roald (@roald) said on 24th November 2013, 18:11

    I loved the fact Mark took off his helmet during the outlap. That’s a shot I’ll never forget.

  15. Red Andy (@red-andy) said on 24th November 2013, 18:14

    I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that this race means that this awful season is finally at an end. The dull racing is bad enough but the mid-season rule change to benefit one particularly loud-mouthed team was just farcical. Very sad that F1 has been reduced to this. I hope sporting integrity returns to the fore next year.

    On this race, there was very little of interest. Some nice fights in the midfield but nothing to write home about really. Slightly less unbearable than Austin, so it gets a 4.

      Not even small children keep repeating the same wrong statements over and over after being explained why they are wrong. You should follow their example, because it’s getting kinda sad now.

        No kidding. He needs to watch the F1 Race edit of Silverstone, and then try to justify (in his head because everyone else already knows this) doing the second half of the season on those exploding tires.

    • Akshay (@hamilfan) said on 24th November 2013, 18:22

      @red-andy I agree with most of the points and the dreadful,horrible,controvery-filled, tyre saving season the only plus being that it will be historically significant for a guy beating all records.
      But,
      C’mon this race was a gazillion times better than Austin .
