Having been schooled by championship leader Lewis Hamilton in Austin, Nico Rosberg fought bravely to his see off his Mercedes-Benz team-mate’s challenge at Interlagos and win the 2014 Brazilian Grand Prix.
It is almost five months since Sebastian Vettel won a Grand Prix but he put that right under the spotlights of the night race at Singapore. The fact that he did it at the expense of Lewis Hamilton – who retired from the lead with transmission trouble – says everything about the continuing roller-coaster ride of the 2012 season as this much-needed victory keeps Vettel in the championship frame despite relatively few visits to the podium in the 13 races so far.
Toyota Motorsport triumphed at the Toyota Cape Dealer Rally in the Western Cape this weekend as Johnny Gemmell and Carolyn Swan in their Castrol Toyota Auris held off former champions Enzo Kuun and Guy Hodgson (BP Volkswagen Polo) and Mark Cronje and Robin Houghton (Sasol Ford Fiesta) to take top honours and the championship lead going into the final two rounds.
The trend continued at Monza. Not a trend saying Car A is more competitive than Car B or that Driver X is on top form and has the measure of contenders Y and Z. No, the continuing trend shows the 2012 season to be eventful but inconsistent and unpredictable.
A large chunk of the Belgian Grand Prix story was written within seconds of the start as a multiple accident took out four of the leading contenders. But that incident should not detract from headlines carved out by the man who led from start to finish. Jenson Button was clear of the chaos thanks to having taken pole position in the same commanding style he would use to control the 12th round of the championship.
In relaxed and dominant form throughout the weekend – fastest in two of the three practice sessions, on pole by a reasonable margin – Hamilton finally proved the worth of McLaren’s recent update package by leading all the way at the Hungaroring.
Fernando Alonso became the first driver to win for the third time this season but he had to work very hard for it. The result of the German Grand Prix was never certain until the Ferrari crossed the line 3,7 seconds ahead of Sebastian Vettel’s Red Bull and the McLaren of Jenson Button.
