Ferrari announced today that Sebastian Vettel will join the team as from next year as the fabled Italian squad embarks a new chapter in its history. After weeks of discussions and speculations Ferrari officially put an end to the story as it confirmed that long-serving Fernando Alonso will leave the team at the end of the season and he will be replaced by quadruple Sebastian Vettel.
Williams did have its fair share of bad luck at Brazil, but Felipe Massa still secured a wonderful podium finish in front of his home crowd, despite a penalty for speeding in the pitlane. Valtteri Bottas was nowhere near the podium as a seatbelt issue delayed him considerably at his first pitstop. He finished 10th.
After both Sauber F1 Team drivers had shown strong performances in quite cold conditions on Saturday in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix, they struggled on a much warmer track on Sunday. In the beginning, Esteban Gutiérrez dropped down the ranking to finish 14th while team mate Adrian Sutil finished 16th, having started from the pitlane.
