By November 24, when this year’s Formula 1 World Championship ends, it will be seven long years since Fernando Alonso Diaz claimed the second of his two titles.

‘O duelo final’ was the Brazilian billing for the 18th and final race of the 2006 season, because it pitted F1’s new young lion Alonso of Renault against the retiring king, Michael Schumacher of Ferrari. In the end neither man won at Interlagos that October day: an incredibly youthful-looking Felipe Massa, clad not in Ferrari red but in special green-and-gold Brazilian overalls for the day, did the job instead.
