    2013
    Round 16/19: India
    1. Vettel – 322
    2. Alonso – 207
    3. Raikkonen – 183
    Vettel is prevented from clinching the championship in India

    Round 17/19: Abu Dhabi
    Vettel (1st) – 372 (+50) (Champion)
    Alonso (5th) – 227 (+20) (Eliminated)
    Raikkonen (Ret) – 183 (+0) (Eliminated)

    In conclusion, double points in the last rounds of the championship puts more drivers in contention for the championship, and it prevents the championship from being clinched early (2009). However, in the dominant seasons of 2011 and 2013, it simply delayed Vettel’s inevitable victories. Since 2006, we’ve been blessed with close seasons with the exception of 2011 and 2013. Double points can not and will not change the fact that Red Bull dominated 2011 and 2013, and that Mercedes are dominating 2014.

    I’m watching the World Cup this year and I’m enjoying it. However, can somebody explain how the extra time works? It seems to work differently than overtime in sports like hockey.

    Sounds like something NASCAR would do, but the FIA beat them to it for once

    I say Vettel on Button. Some say that he had a tire advantage, and they’re entirely right. But how much of an advantage was it really if he spent so many laps behind him?

    McLaren ruining the season for their drivers (“Oh dear, it’s happened again.”)

    And of course hearing my hero Schumacher retiring. I never got to travel to a GP to watch him race :(.
