Eighteen down, one to go. The Brazilian Grand Prix will draw the curtain on the 2013 Formula One season that has been dominated by Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull, but it also sees a number of other ‘lasts’: the last race for V8 engines, the last race of Mark Webber’s F1 career, the last race at Ferrari for Felipe Massa, the last for Sergio Perez at McLaren, the last for Pastor Maldonado at Williams… the list goes on. It may not have been a classic season, but, with rain forecast, we could be in for a spectacular finale.
