F1 2018: 5 Early Predictions for the Brazilian GP
#2 Alonso & Raikkonen have the battle of the weekend
Last time out in Brazil we saw Fernando Alonso duke it out with the retiring Felipe Massa in the Williams and have the fight of the weekend. This time, it will be the Spanish driver leaving F1 and we see him having a go at one of his other historical career rivals, The Iceman. The two have fought over the title in the past, most notably in 2005 when Alonso came out on top, as well as in 2007 where the Iceman clinched the drivers' title.
At Interlagos, we see Alonso looking for some fun, and finding his way close to Kimi to have a fight with the Ferrari. While the days of a McLaren fighting a Ferrari with each having a fair shot are well in the past, and while we may see the Papaya Orange have a resurgence next year, it will be up to Alonso's driving to bring it to Kimi this Sunday.
No doubt a battle like this will almost certainly end with a Ferrari on top, but if there's anyone who can give Raikkonen trouble in a backmarker car, it's Fernando Alonso.
