Seb should thank his buddy Kimi today big time. Seb has quite a few haters, i dont know why some people think that only Alonso is deserving this year's title and not Seb or other driver. Any driver who is winning the title only because he would have delivered over the season and not just a race. You also need competitive car to win the title. Bottomline Seb is with a team which as delivered him the car.

There's some right trolls on this board. Kobayashi is not an "average" driver. He got his first podium on his own merit, driving the same strategy as those around him. I'm not sure any of the remaining tracks will be as strong for Sauber as Suzuka, but lets see what he does now. That podium will be a huge relief, it may take him to another level.

Grosjean should leave F1 and be a crash test driver. Tne penalty given to him is too light, he is a terrorist rather than a racer. He loves too much to crash at first corner. Webber luckily survived this time and got points, but if Grosjean had not crashed at Spa, Kobayashi would have been on the podium there before Suzuka.

Seems like it isn't only Hamfangitas that make cretinous comments. For the Vettelhaterfangitas, like cris, it happens quite often that the driver with the fastest car wins the race, and even the title, as surprising as that may seem to you. I agree the finger is quite annoying. Alonso's performance this year is all the more impressive because he started off with a dog of car but kept putting points on the board.
Again, for the non-Mathmeticians out there, still plenty of points to fight for, so ANY of the top six can still take the title. Anything can happen to any of them, as we have seen. And can we stop all the If this, and If that stuff? You can't change the past.
