The Brazilian Formula 1 race was unbelieveable drama. Lewis Hamilton managed to snatch world champion crown from Felipe Massa at the final lap for the final Formula 1 race of the 2008 season at Brazil.
Watch this and you will know what I am talking about:
My heart went out to Massa who was so close to become the world champion.
This is what I call – LIFE!
Lewis Hamilton - Youngest F1 World Champion
What an exciting 1st night race for Formula 1. This was so heart-bumping. There were so many accidents happened in 1 night. Felipe Massa was in pole position for this very 1st Formula 1 night race. He was in great shape to become the World Driver Champion that night but … a major pit accident blew this possibility away for this night.

The visibility concerns proved unfounded, the predicted thunderstorms never came, and the drivers quickly discovered they could overtake. The inaugural Singapore Grand Prix, the first Formula One event under floodlights, was a huge success and produced one of the most fascinating races of the season.
SPAIN’S Fernando Alonso snapped a year-long win drought to take the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday, winning a drama-filled first ever night race as a comical error cost Felipe Massa dearly.
It was the Renault driver’s first victory since the Italian Grand Prix last year and capped a remarkable weekend that saw him top two of the free practice sessions but start 15th on the grid after a mechanical problem in qualifying.
He claimed his 20th career triumph by 2.95 seconds over Germany’s Nico Rosberg in a Williams and Britain’s world championship leader Lewis Hamilton in third.
Toyota driver Timo Glock was fourth with Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Vettel following up his win in Italy this month with fifth. BMW Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld took sixth.
The race was a new experience for every driver on a street circuit under powerful spotlights and it turned out to be one of the most exciting of the season. -AFP
