Rumors still swirling around Jenson Button and his apparent departure from Formula One. The man is such a joy to watch while driving or being interviewed. His McLaren has sucked the last 2 years, and I hope he will figure out a way to stay in F1. (Source)

Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso takes the sexy beard to new levels of sexy. (Source)

The Mercedes cars qualified 1 and 2, as usual. Lewis Hamilton was in 2nd, and stayed there the whole race. He went off the track a bit on 1 lap and it cost him the win. (Source)

No one cares about Rosberg and Hamilton when a Brazilian is on the podium! Congratulations to Felipe Massa for finishing 3rd and having the best time. (Source)

Interesting stats on qualifying and race performance between teammates. (Source)

Updated with these new results. (Source)

Lewis Hamilton has a 17-point lead in the driver’s championship. Here’s a great image from BadgerGP explaining what the champion result will be based on finishing in the final race. I am so excited to be going!

Be sure to check the Formula One wiki for more complete results, or visit Planet F1.

I won’t be missing this, Vettel.

So much rain on Friday for practice and Saturday for qualifying in Brazil.

It was hometown boy Felipe Massa‘s last drive for Ferrari. He got an unfortunate drive-through penalty that sort of ruined his race.

Fernando Alonso was my favorite, is my favorite. I hope things are much better for him next year.

Beard science. Note weird patchy hair on Lewis Hamilton and Alonso.

Checo Perez has some weirdness going on there too.

Jenson Button has a pretty glorious beard but there is a little weird bit there.

Vettel qualified on top, again, whatever. Nico Rosberg was P2, and Alonso was P3, which was exciting because Fernando starts like a CHAMP.

Alonso doesn’t look that excited about it.

HOW GREAT is the smile on Jenson Button, next to the retiring Mark Webber?

Thank you Mark, indeed. What a class act, even when giving Vettel the finger, we were all with you. I am totally going to watch Le Mans and root for you!

Mark took his helmet off and felt the breeze in an open cockpit and waved to the fans after coming in second. It was really touching.

Then this happened, because it can only stay classy for so long. Good times though, the best part of the race was watching Alonso and Webber going at it on track, because they are buddies and seemed to be having a great time, which makes everyone enjoy the race more.

I totally came in 3rd in the fantasy league…out of 4. Maybe next year will be better. I am just hoping for more variety in performance. If I can’t get a race in New Jersey, at least I could get a season not full of watching the same dude win all of the time.
