I think Ferrari knows Redbull is still in charge of this championship! Redbull still has the best car and with Alonso's engine situation they can't be resting very easy! That's why Alonso downplayed his points lead! This thing is far from over!

yeah but so is Vettel & Webber in the same situation. Webber crashed with his new engine don't know what state is that in and Vettel was already using a 2nd hand engine. All this nonsense is the press about the Ferrari engine. There engines last 4 races as proven by torro rosso and sauber

Doesn't get any better than this scenario:

One championship contender with his whole team behind him and another with his whole team against him. Wonder if that will motivate Webber more to stick it up Red Bull's...

Certainly Alonso is motivated.

(Oh, and not to rule out Lewis, but the contrast is so much better with Mark and Fernando)

red bull have undoubtably got the best car this year, mclaren (you would think) have the best driver pairing, but without a doubt the best team are ferrari, without them being in the right places to capitalize on errors and misfortune from red bull in particular the championship could now be over, earlier in the season alonso appeared to be making errors and being spooked into errors and emotional outburst anytime he was in the same vacinity as lewis hamilton, i half expected the same when he lost a place to hamilton on sunday after the slow pit stop, but the whole team stayed cool and regained the place at the next oppertunity, despite the bookmakers making alonso the new favourite, they know that red bull still has the quickest car so they are right to put even more effort into the final 2 rounds (alonso's one remaining engine has three races to go), brundle described it as a champions drive, it was also a champion team performance

massa should be well up for his home race meaning taking points off the others and helping in the constructors. I can't really see how alonsos engine can last. But if he needs to take the penalty it would be brazil rather than abu dhabi.

Isnt this the same ferrari which messed up so many of massa and kimi's races before this year? But now they seem to be the same old cool, calm and dare i say viscious ferrari as that during micheal's heyday. This strengthens my belief that to be a champion team you need a champion driver, a driver on whom you can believe, who can motivate you even during the darkest times and be a great technical feedbacker. I read an interview by a ferrari sporting director who hailed fernando as the only one in ferrari who actualy believed he could win after silverstone. He inspired the team like none and now the results are for all to be seen. No doubt ferrari supports him as no.1. Truely , he is the best driver by miles and if he wins this year it'll be one of the most hard fought and deserved victory of all time against one of the most superior machines regardless of whatever/whomever one says or supports.

In poetic terms, this is like the Spanish Matador taking on and vanquishing the Bulls! All that's missing is the ampitheatre! :-)

Fernando and Lewis have been there before but the Red Bulls haven't. So they are basically saying to the Bulls: If you want to win this title...if you really want to win this title...you're gonna have to come and take it! You're gonna have to bare your soul for it!!

Jenson should be the one doing that but he's now folded, so Fernando and Lewis are picking up the gauntlet.
