The final race episode for 2008, and what a Grand Prix to talk about! From the early moments of Free Practice through to the podium non-celebrations, we take a look at all the gossip from Brazil.

Intro

Can't believe there's other things to talk about before we get to discuss the race, but here goes.

Good week / Bad week

Good week for charity with Coulthard's new livery, and Portugal get yet more F1 action. Bad week for a sick Trulli and Jacques Villeneuve's singing career (possibly).

News and views

We take a closer look at the standard engines fallout, with Ferrari finally turning against the FIA. We also dissect the FIA's statement and ask five important questions.

Qualifying

A brief look at what happened in qualifying, with Alonso not matching his practice form, Honda having fuel problems, Williams fall from grace and Massa's easy pole position.

The race

It was all about the beginning and the end, with the rain making all the difference in the world. The way intermediate and dry tyres cope with the racetrack meant the last corner of the race was the most exciting thing we've ever seen.

Feedback

Just one question - how do the FIA make sure that two-race engines are actually used for two races without being tampered with?
