Six races left, at 25 points for a win, Vettel's nearly 100 points ahead of Hamilton, and not that many less ahead of Alonso. He has to break down in two thirds of the remaining races for anyone else to even stand a chance of drawing level.

Looks like the challenge and excitement this year is now more who's going to finish second, in both the driver's, and construct it's championships.

No change there then.

You've got to take your hat off to Alonso. A few years back when Hamilton first got his seat in a McLaren, old Fernando came across as a bit of a diva. Since going to Ferrari, he's kind of proved his class a bit, being able to extract more out of the car than maybe he should. The real proof of the pudding though will be having Kimi Raikkonen sat in the same kit, next to him. I think despite the Finn being a genuinely accomplished world champion in his own right, Alonso will fare better, although the relationship will probably make him try even harder than he is now.

These new engines will make also hopefully make a big difference, as it's an entirely new kind of power plant to the sport, well, especially when compared to the current kit, and even the big boys are going to have a few problems getting them to be reliable, as well as efficient.

At the end of the day, like football, it's a resource dependent sport, and the more money you can spend on R&D, then the better your chances. Any team that can afford to run two teams has obviously got the jump on the others financially. Though to a degree they must be keeping a level of separation between RBR and STR, otherwise they'd consistently have four cars in the first four slots on the grid.

Oh my respect for Alonso as a driver has done nothing but grow and grow.

I just don't like him :)

It'll take a very long time for some to get over his stay at McLaren. He was a bit of a f*cking diva back then.

Next season will be interesting, I think Alonso's a better seat of the pants racer than Raikkonen, I guess it's going to be a bit like the old Senna/Prost relationship was at McLaren.

I don't know whether this is a genuine possibility or just media rumour mongering, but I'd love to see Rubens make a comeback.

In fact, Rubens and Felipe at Sauber would be a cracker. All they'd need to do is build a faster car!

Everybody loves Rubens.

Except the Stig.

Personally, I would never have thought of the idea of putting two "professional number two" drivers together in a team.

What do they do? Keep asking the team whether they should let the other one by? :shock:

I think Barrichello was the first "current" at that time Formula One driver who ever spoke back to me, so I DO like him.

So, who's going to win the "Let's just forget that Sebastian Vettel can't really lose the championship" championship?

Alonso? Hamilton? Raikkonen?

Place your bets, please!

Raikkonen is going to miss the last two races of the season due to a back operation:

and Massa's off to Williams:

I would dearly love to see Williams make a comeback, if only for Frank.

Damon winning the championship with them was what got me into F1! That and Murray Walker... Get him back too perhaps? :)
