Another fantastic race to finish off a fantastic season, four drivers still in the running, in theory, at the last race from 3 different teams. Button was already out of the championship running but qualified in 4th, ahead of Webber, and behind Alonso, Hamilton and Vettel.
In the end Vettel took it fair and square, storming to the pole position and then keeping it all together for the win, Ferrari were all at sea with their strategy leaving Alonso languishing down in seventh place at the chequered flag, just ahead of Webber.
If you want a quick recap of the race, as it was a while ago now then check it out here:
But what of the SofaF1 Championship I hear you ask, many contenders (well GrifF1 anyway) have been chomping at the bit to see the final results ever since that race back in November 2010. Such was the interest in the SofaF1 Championship last year, with an all time record of contenders, that Alex had to write some new whizz bang program to keep it all under control. Once the season was done he sat back with a cold beer to wait for the SofaF1 results to calculated. Even with the power of this new cloud thing the results took a while coming, so much so that Alex took the opportunity to rest his eyelids for a minute in this rare pause of his hectic lifestyle. Needless to say when he started snoring, the beer he was carefully cradling spilled over his beige chinos and awoke him with a start. He hurried off to the bathroom to deal with the spillage, then to the fridge to refill his glass, getting sidetracked on the way by a small animal which needed coaxing outside before it did any damage to the sofa. It wasn’t until January that the computing machine produced an answer, Alex’s usually chirpy brow furrowed slightly as all the lights in the neighbourhood brightened up a notch and the strange whirring noise that he had been aware of for a while now stopped, the screen went white and claimed that the championship dilemma had been resolved. “Ah, SofaF1, i’d forgotton all about that!” It didn’t take long for Alex to work out that the computer claiming to have resolved the dilemma didn’t really help all that much, so he went back to the drawing board to ask the computer a different question. Well that was January and ever since then Alex has been working hard to pay off his electricity bill, but now all that is in the past and the results are finally out.
The details is here:
but congratulations to Andy (The Speed Geek) who outwitted us all to claim the SofaF1 Championship win in 2010!
