    @hunocsi
    Have you seen where Sauber are compared to last year? How do you know that the difference is constructors, not engines?

    I also don’t think that the Renault engine is as bad as Red Bull want us all to believe. Red Bull got out-qualified by Mercedes by 0.5 seconds, the same circuit where Alonso and Renault dominated in 2003 despite having 60 to 70 hp less than Ferrari and BMW at the time. Also, RBR are generally at the bottom of the speed traps, several kph slower than STR who use the same engine (they likely run more wing than anyone else, further slowing them down).

    I’d say that today was a fantastic day to be an F1 Fanatic.

    1997

    Round 14/17: Austria
    1. Schumacher – 68 pts
    2. Villeneuve – 67 pts

    Round 15/17: Luxembourg
    1. Villeneuve – 87
    2. Schumacher – 68

    Round 16/17: Japan
    1. Schumacher – 88 pts
    2. Villeneuve – 87 pts

    Round 16/17: Japan
    1. Villeneuve – 95
    2. Schumacher – 88

    Note: Schumi would probably still have pulled off the same stunt in Jerez, so in that sense, Frentzen would still be the likely runner-up in the WDC.

    1991

    Round 13/16: Portugal
    1. Senna – 83 pts
    2. Mansell – 59 pts

    Round 14/16: Spain
    1. Senna – 87 pts
    2. Mansell – 79 pts

    Round 15/16: Japan
    1. Senna – 99 pts
    2. Mansell – 79 pts

    Round 16/16: Australia
    1. Senna – 109 pts
    2. Mansell – 85 pts

    The irony in Adelaide would be that – because the race was red-flagged on lap 14 because of torrential rain – a supposed double points race would turn out to be a normal points race.

    1990

    Round 13/16: Portugal
    1. Senna – 78 pts
    2. Prost – 60 pts

    Round 14/16: Spain
    1. Senna – 78 pts
    2. Prost – 78 pts

    Round 15/16: Japan
    1. Senna – 78 pts
    2. Prost – 78 pts

    Round 16/16: Australia
    1. Prost – 85 (86) pts
    2. Senna – 78 pts

    Conclusion: Prost would have been champion. Also, this would have ended the infamous “21 year drought” for Ferrari from ’79 until 2000.
    Although it should be noted that, with double points in the final 3 races, Senna would probably not have taken out Prost in Suzuka.

    Well, do notice how much faster Alonso was to reacting to oversteer than Raikkonen, he corrects it much earlier:

    Oh yes, it was Hamilton on Raikkonen and Ricciardo at the hairpin (turn 6).

    There was a 3 wide move done by Hamilton on Ricciardo and someone else (my memory fails me) on the hairpin (turn 4).

    Vettel = Ricciardo and/or Kvyatt
    Could Kvyatt be even better than Ricciardo? Who knows.

    Hamilton = Bottas
    This one is pretty obvious, with Bottas’ connections to Mercedes and Wolff.

    Alonso = Hulkenberg and/or Bianchi
    I can’t decide who is better. For now I say Hulk, but Bianchi is younger and has never driven anything other than a Marussia.

    1. Fernando Alonso
    Absolutely perfect, the only driver who thus far this season has performed faultlessly. Also is demolishing a WDC teammate.
    2. Daniel Ricciardo
    Apart from one poor qualifying session in Malaysia, he has been on the same level as Alonso. Biggest surprise of the season.
    3. Lewis Hamilton
    Up and until Spain or Monaco he was my #1. More recently however, his constant qualifying mistakes have dropped him to 3rd.
    4. Nico Rosberg
    He has been great this season. Only needs to improve his wet weather skills. Also his starts haven’t been great either
    5. Valtteri Bottas
    Another rising star this season. In the last 3 GP’s he has been consistently on the podium

    As for the rest:

    6. Nico Hulkenberg
    7. Daniil Kvyatt
    8. Sebastian Vettel
    9. Jenson Button
    10. Kevin Magnussen
    11. Sergio Perez
    12. Jean-Eric Vergne
    13. Jules Bianchi
    14. Romain Grosjean
    15. Felipe Massa
    16. Kamui Kobayashi
    17. Kimi Raikkonen
    18. Adrian Sutil
    19. Pastor Maldonado
    20. Marcus Ericsson
    21. Max Chilton
    22. Esteban Gutierrez
