Webber just needs to make sure he doesn't get a 0 result in the next couple of races and also hope Vettel doesn't win and take down 25 points. He needs to keep this margin he has now as about the minimum to go into the final race towards Vettel or RBR will go for the Zjerman. I'm sure a big part of his disappointment at Monza was he could have been 30+ points ahead of Vettel instead of 24 which makes a big difference.

I slightly favour Webber over Vettel to take a win at 'RBR track' Suzuka. If he could pull that of it'd be a big step.

At McLaren things are a bit easier as their favourite has more points (and generally a bit more speed). It's difficult to say how the car will go on these next few tracks. Last year they were pretty useless at some of them but this year they seem better, although Monaco and Hungary showed they struggle at high downforce mickey mouse tracks...

If the McLaren works though...with the situation at RBR as it is Hamilton is going to take this down easily.

With the Germancentric management of Red Bull, they will never give up hoping for Vettel to do something right (fate chance). The normally rationale thought processes of the Teutonics goes out the windoew where Vettel is involved, with Red Bull. Horner is a puppet, so until the last race Vettel will be favoured and who in the magement gives a damn if that means they do not win the drivers and/or contructors championships. None of them except maybe Mark Webber.
