    A typical "rocket" start by Alonso might spice the things up at the race. And i think at least one of the McLarens will retire with a mechanical failure. Hulkenberg may prove an interesting addition if he takes a good start. And rain! Tomorrow will be an exciting day for sure. Looking forward with four eyes :geek:

    They expect an emotional Lewis Hamilton tomorrow when leaving McLaren. Lets hope the crying starts just before the start of the race and that his tears may flood the Interlagos circuit indirectly helping rival Alonso for his third WDC.

    On a serious note: if its true and Ferrari has made already some changes to ALO's race setup by sending him into qualy with a balanced setup it may be a master move when it will be a wet race. Although I never had the impression that Vettel was on 100% pace during the qualification either.

    Maybe both drivers have already added some more downforce for tomorrow?

    Well, when they interviewed Alonso he said he didn't have a wet setup.

    Of course, you don't want to show your cards before the race. Alonso has nothing to lose at this stage, since he need a lot of luck in this race to win the championship, so he can risk using a semi-wet setup and hope it rains. And Vettel can probably do 4th with a wet setup in dry conditions, so it isn't a big risk for him.
