With the most consistently slick pit crew in the pit-lane, Alonso has delivered a champions performance in the first half of the season. Ferrari woudnt need to improve the F2012 by much (relative to the competition) for him to close out this years title.

Taz, if Rupert paid you 1 million dollars to follow the F1 Circus to every race, giving you paddock passes and all you needed to do was write in your blog and take photos, would you take the job?

Im afraid, wrapping a team around you to benefit yourself and promoting opportunity does not spell hero to me.
The real hero of the season for me is Webber and though I am not a big Webber fan he has shown mettle early in the season (in an under performing RB) even up against a cucumber, who has the same benefits as 'Nando without fading like Felipe... Except unlike 'Nando, the Cucumber doesn't perform if his toys aren't working properly!!

@Taz.

Agreed, and now Whitmarsh is snuggling up to Sky, saying

"We used to be obsessed with bums on seats in front of television sets."

A drop of 11.9% for the combined efforts of BBC/Sky is apparently a good thing according to Whitmarsh, as the viewers are now less important than his income.

McLaren had the Sky F1 logo on there cars in Hungary, not seen it on any other cars, yet. I watched Tommorow Never Dies (again) last night, the crazy media mogul dude could have been based on Murdoch.

Not if I'd made a good living out of the sport already and was concerned about the sports long term health.

Having twitmarsh crawling up Sky's ass on Autosport was hilarious, he's so far up there he might bump into Adam Parr.

Rob, the constructors championship may be where the money is but Ferrari aren't exactly short of money so I think they'll be quite happy to see Alonso lift "only" the drivers title this season.

Talking of heros and zeros, McLaren have managed just one constructors championship in 20 years, is that down to too many heros and not enough zeros or is it the other way around?
