    Webber, Webber….you shouldn’t be there!

    6 Force India 51
    7 Sauber 41
    8 Toro Rosso 41

    probably the most interesting battle for the remaining races. Alguersuari is on fire too!

      I think Force India has 6th place somewhat secured, but Sauber will surely be demoted: they’ve scored just a few points in the latter half of the season, while STR have scored big three times. But then again, it requires just one lucky race for one of these three teams to make big gains.

      McLaren securing second place shows just how much Ferrari is neglecting Massa this year.

      • Klaas (@klaas) said on 30th October 2011, 13:30

        Yeah, but I’d love to see Sutil passing Petrov in the standings. Shame for Sauber, I can’t see them doing better in the last 2 races. As for STR – I think Jaime’s seat is safe now, not so sure about Buemi’s.
        I can’t see how Massa constantly crashing with Hamilton means that Ferrari is neglecting him. On Friday he was perfectly happy with his car, he even topped FP2. He’s the one responsible for ruining things for himself – almost every race weekend he does mistakes, this has nothing to do with the decisions from the pit-wall (anymore).

      • Fer no.65 (@fer-no65) said on 30th October 2011, 13:54

        Uhm, if STR pulls out 2 Korea-like results, then it’ll be interesting!

        Funny tho, STR has 2 points less than what they scored in 2008, with a different point system :P!

    Hope Alonso can hold on to 3rd.

      Hamilton is in the same battle as well, despite 38 points behind Button. It seems like Jenson will beat him this year, but the battle for second place is still open!

  4. bananarama (@bananarama) said on 30th October 2011, 11:17

    Button 38 points up on Hamilton now so if nothing unusual happens he should have that secured.

    Schumacher on a good run in the second half of the season, would be a great boost for Merc if one of them could catch Massa but its unlikely.

    • Prisoner Monkeys (@prisoner-monkeys) said on 30th October 2011, 12:29

      Indeed. Hamilton needs to score 19 more points than Button in each of the next two races just to catch him. I don’t think that’s going to happen short of Hamilton winning a race while Button fails to score.

  5. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 30th October 2011, 11:27

    Surely Alguersuari has his sights on a top 10 finish? More than achievable.

    Schumacher has nicked a couple of points off Rosberg, the gap is now down to 5.

    Even if Button has a DNF before the end of the season, he will have at least a 13 point lead over Hamilton. Back to the status quo?

  6. rfs (@rfs) said on 30th October 2011, 11:47

    Nick Heidfeld got sacked races ago but he’s still 10th on points. Hmm.

  7. Atticus (@atticus-2) said on 30th October 2011, 11:58

    So basically a lot of points of interest remains:

    1) Can Vettel get two more hat-tricks? I know, I know that’s the least interesting and likely of them…

    2) Who will emerge as the winner of the overall silver prize? I bet on Button, but hope for Alonso & a miracle. Both of them are very very strong as drivers, but the car could decide in Button’s favour.

    3) Who will have the upper hand inside Mercedes at the end of the year? What Rosberg gains with that constant 0.01-0.3 sec advantage on one lap pace, he keeps losing over race distance. I can’t decide, I’d like it to be Schumacher.

    4) Who will win the battle of the midfield teams? On pace Renault is lost, but they have the points advantage. Toro Rosso is on fire ATM, and Force India has to up their game to stay 6th. Sauber is lost too I think, and they don’t have points advantage; all this despite Pérez’s decent performances of late.

    +1) Can any of the losing drivers of the three big teams (Hamilton, Massa, Webber) turn the tides during the last two races? I think Hamilton clearly has the biggest chance, he just have to get himself together, I can see probably Massa qualifying ahead of Alonso once, and I cannot see any possibility of Webber beating Vettel at all…

  8. Meander (@meander) said on 30th October 2011, 12:28

    Oh dear, Massa looks so bleak. Over 100 points down and not yet even in the triple digits. He’s a really likeable guys, but sorry, I think it’s time to give a new guy a shot in the Ferrari.

  9. Prisoner Monkeys (@prisoner-monkeys) said on 30th October 2011, 12:58

    I have a request for the next two races. Mr. TV Director, can you please concentrate on the Toro Rosso-Sauber fight, Webber vs. Alonso, and all the other battles with the lower-order teams? The championship is a write-off; that much we know. Vettel is obliterating everyone and everything at every opportunity. Button has second place in all but name, and Hamilton is pretty much out of it. So let’s end the year with a bang, and concentrate on real fights for positions. One we see the replays of the start, I don’t want to see Sebastian Vettel until the end of the race. Nobody on the track gets to …

  10. Jeson Button has been a revelation over the last 2 years. He took his title in ’09 rather convincingly, but everyone was saying his car was better and hence the result. This year, having outdone Hamilton, in Hamilton’s team (let us not be disingenuous) in an equal car, Button has left little doubt that he is currently one of the best racers on the track. I’m certainly not going to rate Schumacher, none of us can… However, of the younger lot, Alonso seemingly is still there in top 3, Vettel for obvious reasons, and last but certainly not the least, is Button. Bring on 2012 :)

    Two races to go,the battle of the Mercedes drivers are still on.
