Read this story, and an interesting thing occurred to me. We'll have six current or former world driver's champions on the grid, but are there really only going to be 2 other drivers on the grid who've even won an F1 race (Webber and Massa)? It seems strange that think that currently if you win just one race in F1, you're 3 times more likely to win a championship than to not. Very odd indeed.

How he can leave Alonso out of the frame as a genuine title contender in 2012 is beyond me. If Ferrari can give him a car that can compete at the front, he must be a real chance. I am also smarting about him ommitting Webber, but that might be because I am a blinkered one eyed Webber fan!!!

damon has to make controversial comments to try and drum up support for his new job. over the years he has barely said a word, now , every day he comes out with some new comment.
it is pretty obvious that the title contenders will come from the top couple of teams. now if he was tipping the likes of vergne, then that would be different.
however, until we see what the latest cars are like, it will be practically impossible to predict who the front runner would be.

It is too early to say. Until these cars have turned a wheel it is difficult to discount Ferrari and Alonso. The other three are obvious choices. No risk in this prediction. ... I hope that Mercedes GP's design team get lucky and have a decent car ... would be good to see the old man in the front again.

To leave Alonso out of the top three title condenders and include Hamilton instead just tells you all you need to know about what tune Sky will be playing throughout 2012. Nice to see a new excuse for Hamiltons failure last year, his unusual upbringing. Not sure what Hill wants to tell us here but at least we havent heard that one before.

Hill says that Lewis is 'star stuck'
Star that he is. Standing far above anything from
Hollywood or his competitors. The LA times calls Lewis the premium
spot light of F1.
