Well I'll be! so far this entire debate hasn't mentioned Webber (re-signed if followed other atory) as a factor - It doesn't mattter about Alonso or Lewis if Webber keeps finishing on the podium each race (or most races), and Vettel is also ther often (which both are likely). No Red Bulls at the top - only Ferrari & Mclaren as much as some might like to see it occur that won't happen. And if Webber is taking points off Vettel if he beats him home, he is also taking them off F & Mc. Nope sorry, I think if they are to stop him this year it looks like they might have to knee-cap him. At the very least for Webber, Alonso or Lewis to win, they would need a couple of Vettel DNF's along with regular wins themselves.
I too think Alonso meant that the two teams would need to keep Vettel off the podium - but if they did did that it puts Mark right back in the WDC hunt as well. Actually - that I can live with.

well guys i'm in a good mood and i have something for richard here since he's so hooked up in conspiracies. i wonder why petrov is keep helping seb & red bull... because keeping alonso behind him last year was hi's best race ever and this year he crashed in monaco allowing the tyre change and helping seb once more getting away with victory, is it because vettel cannot do it himself? and remember last year the petrov's drive was just days after renault and red bull have signed the new engine deal, and a webber gave alosno a lift after the race what could they have plotted against poor seb in that cockpit ? :)

Richard showing fanboyism for vettel? O conmon!.what you are implying of alonso's comment shows your fanboyism.
what happened to worlds best driver last race when he was not in pole? shouldn't the best should have had have 0.5 sec of his own as always? or he can just do that in clean air?

karma. i wouldnt lower myself to the standard of fanboyism shown on this site! ferdi made a remark that he needed help to win the wdc, which just happens to be led convincingly by vettel. if webber was leading, my comment would be the same, if lulu..ditto. i then pointed out that inter team deals had been carried out before. curbing vettel would help both lulu and alonso, and it is no surprise to find out that ferdi and lulu have discussed the matter. it is very easy to box a car in at the start, or to make an overtake difficult. but it would be very difficult for ONE individual to influence the outcome. even if ferdiwon all the remaining races, and seb came 2 or 3, he still wouldnt win the wdc
