  1. Alonso’s consistent results are not about luck but his style, approach and talent. His experience has led him to a
    The point where he is capable of getting good points in almost any situation. With so many drivers in and out of podium positions, getting good points is all you need. The only other driver in a similar situation is Kimi – and to some extent it’s how he won 2007. Alonso will win not by being the fastest, but making the best of every opportunity he has.

    This is a championship where a pragmatic driver like Alonso can shine, where the points are well spread out, I remember him saying to become champion you just need to score a 3rd place in every race.
    I don´t rule out McLaren yet, next 3 or 4 races are crucial, I bet on Hamilton to the win in Budapest.
    Webber is doing a good season but he´s not so consistent as Vettel, he can be brilliant in a race and modest in the next. Vettel is clearly the main threat to Alonso.
    The dark horse is Raikkonen but unfortunatelly he can hardly aspire to more than a top 5 place in the standings and a victory or two at the most. Next two races will be interesting, high temperatures in Hungary and his high ability in Spa will make him a natural contender for victory. Looking forward!

    Alonso is simply outstanding. Furthermore it’s great to see Sauber have scored so many points already. Their race pace seems quicker than the Mercedes and sometimes Lotus, even at this stage in the season!

    Kimi being 4th is quite an achievement considering he’s the only one in the top 7 who still hasn’t won.

    Raikkonen will go in Monza as a championship contender. Mark my words..

    Lotus’ visit to the top 3 constructors was all too brief. Should be a battle that shapes up nicely, though I kind of expect that Button will improve and take points off Romain at the very least.

    Nice and healthy gap that Alonso has, he’s earned himself a DNF! Considering he’s probably ‘due’ one (yes, it doesn’t make sense with the laws of probability but stuck with me) it should make things tighter at the top.
