slszke....totally agree, it pains me to say but I think the favourite now must be Alonso, providing his engine stays together.

MW is in a team that does not see him as the front runner in their plans (Crash story last week) and it does seem that there is a reluctance by Horner to even acknowledge is even in the team! How many times does he appear on the BBC talking about Webber through clenched teeth.

I'm torn on this, as a Brit I want Lewis/Jensen to win, as a near neighbour I want Mark to win...Help!!

There are still 4 contenders (5 if JBs christmas comes early). Mclaren should really back hamilton now because it is such a long shot for button. As for RBR 14 points is nothing which is the gap between vettel and webber. Its too late to back webber they should have started to back him in monza but vettel has got him self back in. And obviously there is a very high chance of alonso's engine blowing so its still all to play for.

mclaren stated before sundays race that both there drivers needed to win all three races to stand any chance, something the team would find impossible to do, red bull are going down the same road but atleast have the best car, so webber and vettel are fighting for wins, the luxery of alonso not having to fight his team mate have seen him outscore everybody since ferrari 'managed' the situation in germany, lack of management by allowing button to still 'apparently' compete for points with hamilton will make a big job even (slightly) harder for lewis, horner was talking about a fight between red bulls drivers being a luxery, webber and vettel may disagree with that view this morning, the only team that seems to be 'operating' as a team at the moment are ferrari, they may not have the best car at the moment, but between them and alonso, they have got into a position at the top of the pile with two races to go and wouldnt want to bet against them

Horner doesn't even site Webber in the article - who is LESS than a race away from the championship leader!

I would imagine Webber would not be taking this kind of disrespect and pack his bags for somewhere else next year.

He deserves better than they way they're treating him.

I honestly don't think Hamilton will win the championship. These last few races have only been between Ferrari (Alonso) and the Red Bulls. The McLaren only seems to be able to perform well on specific tracks, while the Red Bull and now the Ferrari seems to perform on all tracks.

Now suppose Alonso wins the next race that leaves a maximum of 2 contenders to lift the drivers laurels (provided Webber is able to score at minimum 7 points). Abu Dhabi would still decide the title indeed, the amount of options would be largely reduced though...
A difference of 14 points at this stage of the championship is huge in my opinion, RBR should get their act together and do it fast if they don't want to be sidelined by the end of the next 2 races.

Another victory of Fernando in Brazil, and again a nightmare race for Webber like finishing fifth at the end of the race and the championship is over. But I think that everything can happen. Alonso can win the championship in Brazil but can also retire. Lets be the race to tell we what will happen and not Domenicali, Horner or Whitmarsh. Do you agree with me?
