No, seriously.

A prosecutor in Brazil has stated that allowing teammate Fernando Alnso to pass because he in better standing for the championship than Massa would violate laws that ensure fans at sporting events witness "a fair spectacle". He went on to say that if Massa was winning yet allowed Alonso to pass, he would leave the race "in handcuffs".

I can't decide if this is the most ridiculous or most awesome racing related news I've seen in a while.

It's ok though, Massa didn't do well. Alonso finished 3rd and Massa finished 15th, dropping to 21st once. During an early pit stop to change tires one of the wheels wasn't completely tightened so he had to go back for another which really hurt him.

Good race though, RBR dominated with a 1-2 finish which secured them the constructors' championship. Going to be an awesome final race at Abu Dhabi.

Also Jenson Button was almost mugged while leaving the track.
