I’ve been thinking about this a great deal. I wonder. Say we come to a weird position in Singapore or Suzuka. Where Mark is ahead of Sebastian on the track.
Let’s say that if the race finished in that order it did; Alonso and the McLarens would be knocked out of WDC contention, but Mark hasn’t yet been knocked out of WDC contention. However if Mark let Sebastian through; then Seb’s WDC would be secured. So it’s “keep the current position, and let things run between Mark and Seb,” or it’s “let him through and get the WDC over with.”
Do you think Mark would let the guy through?
It would arguably give him a better chance at the 2012 WDC title; sealing the WDC would just let them easily seal the WCC while the entire RBR tech team goes to work flat out on the RB8.
