The second race in Macau was happening, but it was Norbert Michelisz was one of the victims – The Hungarian driver Hyundaia was injured significantly following an accident. His teammate, the champion points the hunter Gabriele Tarquini needed a better final race, The advantage has fallen significantly in terms of points during the first two races in the season's closure.
In the third competition Rob Huff was able to take advantage of the post, after "King Macao" won the first and then the second qualification. The start – just like the first race – did not go well for Huff with him Esteban Guerrieri could go. From third place Michelisz lost a position Against Jean-Karl Vernay.
But Tarquini made a strong start, and at the end of the first yard five positions were added to the ninth place. Champion rival, Yvan Muller was the fifth, ie at the start of the competition, the Italians were better at point hunting.
Of course, this did not start without any collisions. For example, the Mehdi Bennani car is so damaged, that he had to give up the race at the end of the first round.
The drivers in the lead were very close to each other in the first round and it seemed: Huff did not rest Just like the first race, he missed the goals after the start attacked leading Guerrier.
In the third round Aurélien Pani's car was broken, why he had to be sent to the field safety car. The limit was two rounds, so the competition area increased from 11 to 13.
Restart was good for the foremost, but no change of position occurred. Michelisz's job was, to help Tarquin keep Muller behind him, and for now he has succeeded. A similar strategy worked a little bit backwards. Thed Björk was in the sixth round in front of Tarquin, and came to ninth place as he must make Muller's championship opportunities.
In the eighth round, Huff Guerrier attacked harder than before, but he failed. Two turns before the end Vernay made a mistake – He stopped his sound with rubber, and as it was the end of the French competition, Michelis went on a podium. In the next round Zsolt Szabó has broken his car very badly, why the security car should be returned to the field and the field must be sent so he finally kicked.
Guerrieri won the final season of the season, Huff and Michelisz could still stand on the podium. Muller became fourth, but since Tarquini finished in tenth position, The 56-year-old Italian won the World Cup's first championship trophy.
