This is it, the final race of the 2011 season. Sebastian Vettel will lead from pole position, as he has done for the majority of the year, and it is up to Interlagos to provide us with some smashing entertainment to see the season off in style. We've got a couple of battles to keep an eye on, including the second position in the driver's title battle, and the Toro Rosso/Sauber fight that's ongoing in the constructors.

We should also be aware of some of the drivers who don't have race seats to rely upon next year, perhaps this is the last time we'll see them in a car? Plenty of attention is on Rubens Barrichello, as it is his home race. It's also the home event for Felipe Massa and Bruno Senna.

The race gets underway at 4pm GMT, with the Factbyte Factbox kicking off an hour beforehand.

One to Watch

Michael Schumacher scraped through to the third session of qualifying yesterday, and opted not to set a time in Q3. He's hoping the strategy will work out today:

The forecast says there is a high probability for rain during the race. With this in mind, we have kept all of our options open for tomorrow and we had a strategic approach to qualifying today.

Still we need to find out why we weren't able to match our times from this morning. There will be a lot of data checking now, so that tomorrow it will be very different and we can attack for some points.
