I’d storm into Ferrari and drive alongside Alonso.
I would certainly need to win at Melbourne. It’s one of my favourite tracks and I will take a lucky win after Hamilton takes Alonso out. It’s an all British podium as Hamilton finishes 2nd on the road and Jenson finishes 3rd until the stewards have their say, and promote Paul Di Resta up into 3rd as Hamilton managed to finish. I find myself relatively competitive in a car that is there or there abouts.
The next win I would have has to be at Canada. Another one of my favourite tracks, it’s awkward conditions with high tyre wear, but a decent switch to the harder tyre, doing 2 stints on them, as the softs crumble let me through to win ahead of Schumacher, who made a similar call. I find myself leading the championship once more ahead of my team mate and Vettel.
After a dismal race in Valencia, I find myself in with a real shot at winning my home race. The track is waterlogged and the start is delayed, and a problem in qualifying meant I started 23rd. But I beat John Watson’s record of winning from 22nd by sheer luck of Vettel and Alonso taking each other out, a Red Bull engine blowing up, and McLaren simply uncompetitive.
I pick up the podiums in subsequent races until I drop down to 4th by Austin. 6 drivers are in contention at the last race and Hamilton picks up his 2nd title after he gets lucky, and beats Vettel, Button, Alonso, myself and Webber by 2, 6, 12, 18 and 19 points respectively. Only if…
