EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inappropriate insult removed.

The driver thats the biggest threat to Alonso has got to be Hamilton, the guys got momentum and also now the fastest car, besides Lewis is the fastest driver out there, Im certain if he stays out of trouble he will take this title.

Kimi has a chance but only if Lotus can provide him with a car good enough to win races.

Also, Grosjean might still take points off of Kimi in some races to come (although on race pace Kimi has had Grosjean under control most of the races this year so far), while Felipe is probably expected to drop out of the lead and let FA pass even if he is in 4th position or something at the time.

Not that Felipe has a great chance of leading a race in the first place of course...

Apart from Alonso, Kimi (and Webber) has avoided incident's better than any of the other front runners, and has been decisive when overtaking, a pretty good foundation for a championship challenge

The Eye-brow man got away from the Iceman in 2005 due to sheer luck.. But this time Alonso and Santander will be paid back with interest in Finnish currency..

@Tealeaf if it wasn't for the "crippled team" jibe you may have had total agreement. There is still a lot of love for the Minardi team. They probably got the best results per dollar spent of any team on the grid.

Hamilton has the speed, but not the head to beat Alonso. Raikkonen has both, possibly with a disadvantage of the slower car of the three. If you are going to beat Alonso you have to bring more than outright speed to the table.

If Alonso and Ferrari do exactly what they have done so far, Alonso wins this. Kimi, Vettel, Weber and Hamilton will be dicing the points to a degree that will make attaining the gains they need tough. Mix in Rossberg, Maldanodo, Grosjean and Perez, and things get messy. The only chance is for someone to breakaway and consistently finish well beyond their first half performance among those seeking same, while whittling down the Alonso lead by finishing ahead of him by an average of 5+points per race. Good luck with that.
