  1. Eh, Keith, I think you forgot to put Klien in the championship standings (would that be in front or behind Nick Heidfeld?).

      You know, F1.com also doesn’t list him in their points table. Maybe Sakon assumed his hidden identity to finally go fast!

  2. Very happy for Alonso. He spent a torturous two years at Reno in a pig of a car. These wins are well overdue and I hope he nails the championship.

    What an absolutely amazing driver!

    Fantastic win by Alonso!!!
    What a faultless drive keeping a fast red bull behind him.
    The usual Hamilton..esche Sunday afternoon..lunge lunge and crash!!! He should have took a very hard look at himself after that. Kubica showed him a few laps l8ter how its done when overtaking Sutil. As EJ was saying, surely Hamilton was not expecting Webber to suddenly just dissapear? I was glad for webber that the stewards didnt penalise him, and put it down to a racing incident….which it was

    Totally agree with Steve..what an amazing driver

  5. ANd what about Heifield? Delarosa was fired from Sauber because he had to be half second faster than his mate, and I think Heifield has the same condition to stay.

    Kobayashi is very fast and he’s going to finish many drivers careers with that Peter Sauber’s way of managing.

      You can’t really compare the pace of someone who has been in the team since testing day 1 and someone who just hopped into the car and had a go at it. Just look at last year and how the ‘new’ drivers struggled. (and yes, Kobayashi struggled too, his race pace was quite off and even though entertaining, his beaviour in the race wasn’t reay F1 worthy).

  6. Many things are now on Alonso’s side; experience, momentum and the full support of his team. The confidence he has ganined from the last couple of races may well give him a massive boost that will overcome some of the silly moments we have seen from him earlier this season. My money was on webber previously, now all bets on Mr Alonso.

    • It is a beatiful racing story with Alonso for this part of the season. He’s no more a complaining primaballerina without results – now he is a very hard working hero supported by equally dedicated team in joint effort to do the best possible. No smallest gain is ommitted to help bring the resutls. It’s very impressive how quickly they have bounced back from the edge to the top.

  7. It is just weird seeing a driver with over 200 points.

    28 points over the Top 5. I still think Webber is the favourite with the tracks coming up but if he doesn’t put in the right performances Alonso’s right there, as is Hamilton if Korea’s ad Abu Dhabi’s straights play into McLaren’s hands.

    Another way of looking at it is converting to old style: with 50 points up for grabs, there’s 11 points in it. The thing I dislike most about the new system is it does tend to over-amplify the scale of things. In fact if you look at how it would be under the previous system you can see how very close it is:

    Mark Webber – 69
    Fernando Alonso – 66
    Lewis Hamilton – 63
    Sebastian Vettel – 60
    Jenson Button – 58

    It’s damn close!

  9. Who would have guessed that Rosberg would have more than double Schumacher’s points at this stage in the season? Is Schumacher that bad or Rosberg that good?

  10. Wow, out of the last races, even three race wins and a second won’t automatically win Hamiltomn the championship, he would be relying on Webber not coming 2nd / the others taking points of each other. The only way it is in Hamiltons, Vettels or Buttons hands is to win every race.

    If only Button could win Suzuka, followed by Vettel, Hamilton, Massa (or any other points grabber), and Alonso, with a DNF for Webber. That would put the points like this:

    Webber – 202
    Button – 202
    Alonso – 201
    Vettel – 199
    Hamilton – 197

    5 point spread? Yes please. At Singapore the points spread was 25 from Webber to Vettel going in, and it’s 25 from Webber to Hamilton post race. I think this shows it’s possible (however unlikely) that we could still see the battle tighten up even further. At least I hope so.

    • Yes, it needs a DNF from Webber. I think it will be won in Brazil, however, you never know with this exciting Championship
