    If Webber has more points than Glock, shouldn’t he be above him ?

    Good to see Kubica back in the fight, can’t see him winning but he could add a bit of spice to the final 2 races.

    I don’t think it’ll happen but looking at today’s standings, it would be hilarious if Kimi won the last two races and lost the championship to Hamilton by a point.

  4. All the time the top drivers behave like rookies and the teams are squabbling, it will allow the likes of Alonso and Kubica to take away their points and we may have a surprise Champion yet!

    Did anyone else hear james allens completley crap commentary?? now correct me if im wrong but going into japan, hamilton had a 7 point lead.

    Allen was flapping his gums all race long that if neither hamilton or massa scored any points, hamilton could, afford to finnish behind both ferrari’s at the last 2 races.

    Now im no mathmatician, but assuming massa won the last 2 races with raikkonen 2nd and hamilton 3rd, if hamilton had left japan with his 7 point lead intact, he would lose the tittle by a single point?? or am i missing something because the net loss would have been 4 points each race, 4 x 2 = 8.

    obviously this doesnt matter now because massa scored 1 point and was gifted another by FIA (F****** idiot association) but it just goes to prove what a complete berk james allen is and i cant wait to hear the last of him come brazil.

    @ schumi the greatest:

    Yes, James Allen is indeed the berkiest of all berks. A complete berk. A berk of the highest order.

    STG – I pointed that out on the live blog at the time. I can live with people making mistakes – hey I make enough myself! – but it kind of gave the impression he was only interested in how the race would affect Hamilton’s championship chances.

    To be honest keith, that is all allen is intrested in.

    while were talking about championship chances, who do you think will win the tittle now keith??
