it is Ferrari that is going to cost themselves the title for under performing in development.

Had Alonso had a car that was capable of qualifying up the sharp end every race then alonso would easily still be in the lead in the WC as I think there would have been 1 less accident at least he would have been dragged into.

Anyway ferrari don't seem capable of keeping up with the relentless development that Red Bull seem to be able to bring.

I wish I was wrong, if Alonso had a car like the red bull he would have wrapped up the WC ages ago as he is easily the best in F1 at the moment.

it is really amusing to read when people say if alonso or lewis had the dominant RBR they would have won title by now or others wouldn't see where they go when race starts...yet the same people complain and blame vettel for doing same. Lots of people complain vettel last title was one sided and boring...i am sure they wouldn't mind if their favt driver do so

What a leader Luca is. Stefano Domenicali was clearly just about to have holiday for the next ten days and give the rest of the team a hard earned break too. Luca spotted the error in this and quickly demanded that they instead work to produce a winning car. Of course Luca could see, that with Red Bull also having 10 days off, resting on their laurels, doing nothing, that the Ferrari team could steal an advantage by... working hard! So simple! Stefano must be banging his palm against his head and kicking himself for not realising that this was all he needed to do all along. But Luca, in his excitement, has announced this to the world, so maybe Mr. Horner will also realise the worth of this stroke of genius and demand the same from his team. Doh!

Monty's demands are getting really stale. Like a boss who figures if he commands it to happen, it will be so. Good luck with that, so far its accomplished nada. What's going to be interesting in Austin is that Vettel will be coming there hot, celebrating his 100th race, in a car he obviously likes. If SV wins, FA will need to be on the podium as well, or it's done. Even if Monty gets his wish and SV retires, FA must finish 5th or better to keep the fires lit. It's going to be a fun USGP at long last!

I really hope that Ferrari has everything what it takes to win, but they really really need a big improvement in the next race to catch with RBR, as it seems that Vettel is very close to clinching his 3rd title with this is kind of form they have got.

Cannot wait to see action at Texas, should be so damn interesting! :)
