On November 25, 2012, the Brazilian Grand Prix was held at Interlagos Circuit in Sao Paulo, Brazil, which will be the final race of the 2012 F1 World Championship. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso took out one step out of the championship pattern in which the winners will be replaced each time until the seventh round of the year, but Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel rebounded a lot in the second half, and the champion's The possibility was left behind.
In the race eventually, McLaren's Jenson Button raised his third victory this season, with Alonso entering second, Vettel also entered six, and Vettel decided on World Champion for the difference in points.

◆ Flow to Brazilian Grand Prix
Alonso, Nico Rosberg (Mercedes AMG), Vettel, Maldonado (Williams), Mark Webber (Red Bull) started as Baton won in the opening round at the Australian Grand Prix, starting with the 8th race at Alonso this season's 8th race ), Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) and seven winners were born.
In that situation Alonso steadily earned points, with 154 points at the end of the 10th round of the German GP which will be folded back, with 34 points difference to Webber who is second, running alone. Vettel won the fourth race in Bahrain Grand Prix but there was a race that ended without points, and at the end of the 13th round Italian Grand Prix, Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus) passed the place and stayed in fourth place.
However, from the 14th round of the Singapore Grand Prix in the 17th round of the Indian Grand Prix from the Singapore Grand Prix, he stood at the top with a 13th difference to Alonso, with Alonso being second in Abu Dhabi GP and Vettel third in the 19th round Then Vettel was second place and Alonso was third place and the point difference did not change and we decided to welcome Brazilian Grand Prix in the final round.
◆ Brazil GP result
As a result of the qualifying, the pole position is Lewis Hamilton, the second is Jenson Button and McLaren, two behind it followed by Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull. At this point, the drivers' point lead is 273 points of Vettel, Ferrari's Fernando Alonso (260 points) was the only one that could reverse, but Vettel had a pretty advantage of winning if it was within 4th It was decided to challenge the final in a state.
In the first lap of the first lap, Vettel was involved in the contact and was forced to race from the rearmost, including the upsurge. Weather conditions were also rolling in the middle, such as heavy rain on the way, Vettel also failed to select the tire once and there was also a scene that was preceded by Alonso, but it was ranked sixth in a race that did not take the early handicap I won a prize.
Alonso, who was in the eighth position, pushed the ranking at the start, after which Hamilton and Hürkenberg, who had been running ahead, brought in contact with each other and Hamilton retired, and it came in second. The condition that Alonso can become a champion was three patterns "himself winning and Vettel being less than 5th", "himself being the second place and Vettel being the eighth place" and "himself being the third place and Vettel being the tenth place" Finally finish in second place without being able to catch up with Baton going to the top. Vettel 's world championship acquisition has been decided.
Vettel's world championship won three consecutive victories following 2010 and 2011. In F1, we can see a couple of years to be a champion for two consecutive years, but when it lasts for more than three consecutive years the number decreases at a stretch, and in 1954 ~ 1957 he won the 4th consecutive van Juan Manuel Fangio and 2000-2004 There is a case of Michael Schumacher who won five consecutive times. Fangio was 45 years old at the time of achieving 3 consecutive victories, Schumacher was 31 years old, but Vettel updated the record dramatically as 25 years old.
Those who took out the top six points this season are like this, with Alonso making a difference to the middle stage, Vettel suffered a stroke from the 4 consecutive wins and finally to the struggle between the two. Although Raikkonen is only one wins of the 18 rd Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, it finishes points finely and secures the third place with a steady run with no point (11 or less) being only 1 degree. Hamilton has won 4 wins and earns great points, but there are also 6 no-point races on the other hand. By the way, Vettel was no point three times, Alonso was once.
This is a summary of the points of the driver who won 1 point or more. The horizontal axis is the driver (the left is the top) and the vertical axis is the race (the ascending order from the first race). Also, the first place is the red background, the second is the orange background, the third is the yellow background, the point is the peach background, and the white background part ends with no point. Grajan is marked as x because the Italian GP has been suspended. The fact that there are many opportunities to rise on the podium is to say that there are many opportunities to earn points, so it is natural to gather on the left side, but Maldonado who won the 5th round Spain Grand Prix in such circumstances has fewer other winnings 4 times , The result is fewer points than Di Résta which was less than 6th place except that there is one in 4th place.
◆ Teams and Driver Trends for 2013

A team that is also expressed as "All British", the English driver combination, Hamilton & Baton, also suited it, but there also seems to be intention to dilute the British color (Perez is a Mexican).
Raikkonen, 2007 world champion, this year I stayed at only one victory, but I definitely got a point and bite into third place. Next year I looked to seek out Raikkonen's partner, but apparently it will be Grojan's residual. Known as "a dangerous driver", this season's retirement has seven times during the 19 races of the competition, of which only one machine trouble occurs. Especially because there are many accidents in the first lap, it is also expressed as "Groujan missile" and "Grojan cannon" released at the same time as the start, but what will happen in 2013 ...?
