    Here’s a great what if for you. What if Vettel went a couple of meters wider. It would have meant…

    1. Vettel, who led the race for every (69) laps, crashes on the last lap.

    2. Button, who pitted 6 times and had a drive through penalty, who wasn’t even on the back of the train with 30 laps to go wins.

    3. Webber, who was turned around in the first corner comes back to take a brilliant second.

    4. Schumacher, a 41 year old takes his first podium since his come back.

    This was already a race for the ages, but if Vettel was just a few meters wider it could have been the greatest ever race in the history.

    I completely agree, I like Red Bull but when I saw Vettel going off line, I was praying for a full spin to allow Schumacher onto the podium

    What if Webber, Button and Schumacher all took each other out and Vettel spun out completely?

    Then HRT would have been in the points!

    Macca, the moment Vettel started spinning, I was thinking the exact same thing. Vettel’s too good for that, though.

    Exactly. The podium would have seen Petrov with his first win, Massa come second and Kobayashi third. Both Hispania and Virgin would score points, moving Team Fernandes back to last in the WCC.

    My point is that it’s pointless to speculate because there are any number of possible permutations and combinations to go through. What if the race had been dry? What if there had been a proper start? What if Button had never made a mistake coming out of the chicane and Hamilton never hit him?

    If it had been 2008, Vettel may well have been out of the race, as that was a gravel trap, not a tarmac run-off back then.

    It’s just a bit of fun, no need to be a wet blanket mate.

    “no need to be a wet blanket mate.”

    You might be asking a bit much there Macca!

    VET- 143

    BUT- 101

    WEB- 97

    HAM- 85

    ALO- 69

    Or if HAM had won instead of BUT (and VET crashed)

    VET- 143

    HAM- 110

    so things can change pretty quickly…
