As we come into the 19th and final round of the 2013 Formula One World Championship season, the big question seems to be whether or not Sebastian Vettel can equal the record of nine straight Grand Prix victories. But with many other story lines at play, I began to wonder what F1 fans would really like to see the most.

Some six full decades since Alberto Ascari originally set the mark that Vettel could tie in Brazil, how many feel that this momentous mark would be a fitting end to an already momentous 2013 campaign for the still very young German? OR…would some of you rather see Mark Webber go out in style by taking the victory in his 215th and final Grand Prix start?

But wait, there’s more! Romain Grosjean has four podiums from the last five rounds. Is it time for the Frenchman to finally take the top step of the podium? Would that be a more popular finale to the year that was? But then there’s Felipe Massa. Does the Ferrari have the legs to carry the home grown hero to what would surely be a much celebrated win in his last start for the Scuderia? If Ferrari does in fact find some speed, can Alonso pick up his first win of the season since the 5th round in Spain?

Way back in Hungary, Lewis Hamilton was the last driver to beat Vettel. Can his newly repaired Merc repeat the fete? Sure, it would be cool to see Vettel set yet another record, but is that what most fans want? Of the many different scenarios, maybe even one not mentioned above, who would you as a fan of the sport most like to see claim the victory this weekend in Brazil?

Kimi Rai….oh, wait.

No care.

Actually, would like to see top five for Bottas.

Seems like a good guy and would like to see him succeed.

Considering voodoo ritual to cause the Red Bulls–who will likely lock out the first row–to crash in turn 1.

Looks like it could rain which will make things, thankfully, (more) interesting.

Victory is hard to achieve when your teammate goes by the name of Sebastien, but Webber won there in Brazil before, and I believe it’s his turn for a victory. Grosjean will not be upset if he finishes 2nd behind Webber knowing it is Mark Webber last race in F1

I’m not expecting anyone to beat Vettel. That would be a fool’s errand. However, having Grosjean end his season on a positive note (another 2nd place) would give him some momentum for next year. His is the story of the underdog that climbs up and up to eventually succeed.

I would like to see a wet race and Hulkenberg taking podium (unfinished business). Obviously Mark will get the win which is a PR move by Red Bull, essentially a free gift from Red Bull to Mark exactly the same as Brazil 2011. But honestly I would like to see Mark win after a good fight with Seb.

It’s going to be an important race for all the midfielder and everyone below to help secure a seat.

I want to see Vettel tie the 9 wins in a row record.
If he doesn’t, would love to see Hulkenberg (if it rains, maybe…) or Grosjean win their first Grand Prix.
Would be a great way to finish great seasons for all three drivers.

Since nobody said this had to make sense: I’d like to see Bottas win while Maldonado can’t get out of Q1, and every other team decides Maldonado is not worth his millions (or his negative comments) and passes on him. Heikki can finish second and secure the Caterham ride, while Hulkenberg proves too valuable for Lotus to pass up even if they can’t quite afford him. (Obviously they couldn’t afford Kimi either) . By some miracle Ferrari will stop talking about giving 120% and ACTUALLY give their drivers a championship-worthy car next year. Hamilton will look good in some races,… Read more »

Don’t you love how Ferrari gave Fernando an 8 out of 10 for this years performance. When will the teams be held responsible for their performance as well? It’s a give and take from both sides.

I see talent in Bottas so I’d love to see him do well but he’s in a Williams after all

Vettel to win just so we too can live in an era when we saw a great one and like Vettel said in Texas, this will not last for ever.

Although so much has been decided, I hope this race will be a fight. I want an all in, nothing to lose, last of the V8s turned up to eleven (i could go on ) race.
As webber is off too it would be good to see him on the podium somewhere.

that would be awesome and exactly the send off these engines need… we won’t get it of course because the tires would turn into spaghetti
