Brazil 2012 - Rate the race // How does the final race of the 2012 season stack up?

Published by Christine

You'd be hard pushed to find more entertainment of a weekend, but judging the racing is always a subjective thing, so this is your time to tell us how the Brazilian Grand Prix rates for you.

It contained a little bit of everything: rain on and off, safety cars, yellow flags, spins, changes of leader, genuine overtakes, DRS overtakes, broken radios, retirements and championship battles. If you can pick your way through all of that, then decide how you rate this race compared to the rest of the 2012 season.

There were championship battles to watch out for throughout the field, with the title up for grabs, but also the lower positions as well.

Rate the Vettel's recovery drive

133 votes

Sebastian Vettel found himself at the back of the field on the first lap after a spin left him facing the oncoming traffic. He was lucky not to get bashed any further, and the car seemed undamaged, which allowed him to move back through the field. He finished in sixth place, enough to win the title.

Rate the Caterham/Marussia battle

121 votes

We'd thought it was all over for Caterham, as Marussia's twelfth place finish seemed untouchable. Throw in a bit of chaos at Interlagos though, and the crucial tenth place championship position was up for grabs once more. It ebbed and flowed between Kovalainen, Pic and Petrov before going Caterham's way.

Finally, there was a lot going on in the race, and a lot of drivers messing up, or managing to avoid trouble. If you can pick a top job for the afternoon, who do you think made the best of the situation they were in?
