      Are you implying the FIA stewards (independent of decisions made from Todt) punished Vettel unfairly?

      Under the 2012 sporting regulations, Vettel broke the rules. On the same move last year, Alonso did not. Vettel will have known the limits of the rules, but tried to push the boundaries anyway.

    Just to redress some of the comments, Ferrari had the fastest car this weekend, not McLaren. Ferrari have actually had a very consistent car since Spain, AMD therefore perhaps the best car if not always the fastest. There’s no doubting Alonso’s genius at the start of the season, but let’s not forget that Ferrari have dropped points this weekend on terms of what the car was clearly capable of.

      They were good in Monza which is a Low downforce track, but they were nowhere in Spa or Hungary. On the other hand, Mclaren was on pole and winner in all last 3 races with different layouts!

      you don t win races or championships with what you are capable of but what you achieve!

    • Hamilton was walking massa the whole race and comfortably stiff-armed both alonso and checo at the end. If not for buttons issue ferrari finish 4-5. That compares well to alonsos big talk. Looking at spa and Hungary as well I think mclaren have a real advantage now across track types. If Hamilton can keep it on the road its going to get real interesting by Austin.

    You spot on there John, Alonso has been saying this the whole weekend.
    Yet everybody fears the Mclaren.

  4. i know webber,vettel and button retiring wasent their fault but kimis consistency is simply stunning people seem to forget the guy left formula 1 for 2 years and we know how hard it is to return to f1 like schumacher showed, alot of the time doesnt feel like he left in the first place. would love to see him win the wdc but seems unlikely

    Alonso will win the championship. The opposition keeps taking points off of each other. He went in with a 24 point lead and left with a 27 point lead.

    I’m not an Alonso fan, but he certainly Does it when he needs to.

    It’ll be good for the suspense if he has some bad luck, but it in the end this was a superb year, just like 2006 for both Fernando and Schumi.

    @keithcollantine When was the last time a race winnner was under 10th place in the championship after the summer break? Of course I’m talking about Pastor Maldonado. Unbelievable!!! 15th, and no more points after his 15 minutes of fame in Barcelona. I stated a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time ago Bruno Senna was much better driver than him, and I wouldn’t be surprised if at the end of the year Bruno is ahead Crashtor in the championship

    @keithcollantine Hey hey another one for “your questions answered” :P
    I see HRT, caterham and Marussia (let’s imagine they didn’t change names from the time they appeared)
    How long has ever been the longest period a new team had to wait to score points? I can’t wait to see which one of them will (if ever) score first

    Thanks Keith or any other good experts who can answer these strange questions. Have a niice Sunday!!!!!!

    Let’s not forget about the WCC, McLaren are stronger than Red Bull, but Red Bull have a points advantage.

    • Don’t rule Ferrari and Lotus out either…A couple of wins from either Alonso or Raikkonen, combined with decent performances by their team mates and a DNF here and there for Red Bull and McLaren and they are right back withing striking distance of the WCC. It’s that simple.

      I think between the top 4, in both WCC and WDC it could go either way.
      Four different drivers are battling for the title driving for four different teams who are battling for the (other) title. I just love this season…

  10. So it was Monza, seven races before the end, where first drivers lost even theoretical chances to the title. Last year that cut-off point was Hungarian GP, with eight races to go.

    Doesn’t seem a big difference but Alonso has now four points more than there are points available, while last year Vettel had 234 points with 200 available.

    I don’t think Alonso is going to be able to hold on. Hamilton has won 2 of the last 3 races and would have likely scored a podium in Spa were it not for the wreck. RedBull will have a resurgence at Singapore and Suzuka, and Kimi has the longest points scoring streak in the field.

    He needs too much help, he can’t count on Felipe always being there to move out of his way, or for Vettel to keep having car failures. That didn’t win him the championship in 2010 and it won’t this year either.

    He is driving brilliantly no doubt, but he knows better than anyone, and will be the first to tell you that the Championship is far from over.

    I hope Lewis can reel Alonso in and claim his second championship. He really deserves it.
