Like 2007, the 2008 F1 season went down to the last race - the Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo, 2nd November 2008. Two drivers were still in contention - McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari's Felipe Massa. Like 2007, Hamilton went into the final Grand Prix of the season with a 7 point lead. In 2007, Hamilton was agonisingly pipped to the Drivers Championship by Kimi Raikkonen by just one point. In 2008 Lewis Hamilton amazingly clinched the Championship by one pont over Felipe Massa.
The 2008 Formula One season will be best remembered for the final and conclusive race in Interlagos, Brazil. Lewis Hamilton was in fifth place with only two laps remaining - just sufficient, by one point, to win his first F1 Drivers Championship and also become the youngest ever Champion. However, Hamilton was passed by Sebastian Vettel and all Filipe Massa required was to cross the finishing line in first place. Brazilian, Massa achieved this to the delight of the home crowd, who started celebrating along with the Ferrari pit crew. Hamilton had been chasing Vettel to no avail and as they neared the pit straight there was no way he could pass...he didn't need too! All of a sudden, and to the shock of the millions around the world watching Hamilton surged past Timo Glock, who was stranded on dry tyres. Lewis Hamilton amazingly crossed the line in 5th place and was crowned the 2008 Formula 1 Drivers Champion, by just one point!
