    Its so damn close!

  2. Really does look like it’s going to come down to the last race of the season.

    Love it! So glad the 5 drivers are back in the hunt.

    Yeah should make Abu Dhabi and Brazil the races to watch.

  5. Lewis should’ve scored a very nice result here, considering the next GPs are RBR tracks!… what a nightmare of a weekend this was for him!

  6. Well my first of two prediction came true that there would be a DNF for Hamilton. I think there will be one for Webber as well.

    Webber goes top after a poor race, looks good for RBR.

    It all depends on the changes the extra tests have made if any.

    If it carries on like the season so far Ferrari will be nowhere in at least two more races, but today they must be very happy.

      Ferrari Territory isnt Lewis’s Tracks think about it
      Brazil 2008:5th
      Bahrain 2009:4th
      Spain 2009:9th
      Italy 2009:DNF
      Brazil 2009:3rd
      Bahrain 2010:3rd
      Spain 2010:DNF
      Italy 2010:DNF

      Note:Hasnt won in a Ferrari Territory

      • How is Bahrain “Ferrari Territory”?

        All the others make sense but Bahrain is basically camel territory.

      • Yeah, Lewis seems to like the North American, Northern European (and Belgian) tracks….probably a little due to what those fans in ‘Ferrari’ territory yell out to him when he walks around the paddock

  9. Great to see how close they are at this stage of the championship. It’s now “only” 100 points up for grabs, and this means there is only 8 guys who have a theoretic chance to win. Looks like Massa has 6th to keep it if he races on like this.

  10. It will be interesting to see what approach Red Bull do take. Dietrich Mateschitz has stated that the goal is to win both championships so given that for me it would make sense for Vettel to play a supporting role at Singapore, Japan and South Korea as these are courses that will likely suit the Red Bull package.

    Given what the goals are for the team this year what do you do? Do you allow Vettel to race or do you capitalise on the Red Bull courses to help Webber and hopefully head into the final two races of the season with Webber holding a solid points buffer?

    I know in the past it has usually been the drivers race until they are mathmatically out but with five guys in the hunt and a great emphasis points wise on a win I think Red Bull just has to get behind their man with Vettel going for 2nd place positions therefore Webber extending his lead by at least ten points per race.

    The next three courses should suit the Red Bull car, and if the abovementioned is put into practise (disregarding reliability and brainfade moments) Webber could potentially be heading into the final two races with a 35 point lead.

    Common sense is one thing, but Helmut Marko is something else though…

    I think 3 out of 5 tracks that McLaren have their best chances of winning another race this season which are Suzuka,Korea and Abu Dhabi Lewis and Jenson must push very hard on those tracks and do damage limitation on the rest McLaren must PUSH NOW!!!!

  12. I was hoping for a Hamilton and Webber DNF, and I came pretty damn close to getting it! This result makes the entire championship much more interesting, and lets hope we can get 5 drivers within 20 points of each other racing for the win at Abu Dhabi.

    Would be great to see whether Jenson and Sebastian play a 2nd driver role in the final race of the season.

  13. How incredibly strange this championship is.

    Right after Belgium where 3 contenders didn’t score, the other 2 who did score scored meager points today. Fantastic!!

    And congrats to Alonso for his first legitimate win of 2010. And full marks for giving the credit of the overtake to his pit-crew.

  14. I know being hunmble is a lot more attractive but many said it was just a two horse race now, it was only Ham vs Web and Alo had no chance but I told you so. There, I said it. :)
