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?
