The race was amazingly not hit by rain, considering every single session beforehand had seen wet tyres in action. However, there was overtaking galore and a change in the lead (briefly). The winner was predictable, but the emotions were running high and scrapping for position further back grabbed our attention. Rate the final race of 2013 out of five stars, with the full five for a great way to sign off the season, or one star if it capped a pretty rubbish second half.

There were a few notable incidents throughout the race, and the stewards got involved with some of them - why not rate the stewarding out of five? Also, let us know what you think about the potential for Brazil to be replaced as the final race of the year!

The stewards seemed to wake up for the last race of the year, with not one but two controversial drive through penalties handed out. Ferrari, in particular, were not happy with Massa's penalty, as it proved quite costly for them in terms of the championship. But were the stewards doing the right thing, or is it too little too late? Rate them five stars for some good calls, or one star if they need to go back and read the regulations again.

There's talk of Abu Dhabi hosting the final race of the year in 2014, which would put a very different spin on the latter half of the championship. However, as the season is so long, the championship usually gets decided earlier rather than later, so perhaps Brazil would benefit from having more of an influence higher up the order. Rate the Interlagos track five stars for being perfect in last place, or one star if it needs moving about the calendar a little bit.

As it's the last race, we're opening up the polls to all the drivers - who had the best afternoon in Brazil, and why? Cast your vote now.
