F1 » Alguersuari: Vettel has more to lose than Alonso

Jaime Alguersuari: Vettel shouldn't lose it [the title], but he could. All Alonso can do is win, because it already looks like he shouldn't

@BugerKing-201 - those are some pretty harsh allegations just because you disagree with someone's opinion of how a race unfolded. Maybe you are upset by something unrelated (Romney's loss last night)? While you are correct that the first safety car was when Vettel went to the back again it also bunched the field up so maybe it was not as big of a hinderance as it would have been under normal racing conditions. Vettel did gain at least one position due to retirements.

It still means you could only over take one car at a time, its not like starting from the grid where you could pass 6 to 10 car within 2 corners (more on the xbox) but reality Vettel did a fantastic job

I would beg to differ with Alguersuari. I would argue that Alonso is the one with more to lose. He's 31 now and in the late prime of his career... Seb is only 25 and still has many more years left in his prime. Also, having Seb win a 3rd consecutive title would eclipse Alonso's 2 consecutive titles from 2005-06... thereby dimming his legacy in this era of F1. He must be feeling a bit of pressure after so many years without a title and fewer years left to cement his legacy... though I have to say he seems to be handling it quite well thus far.

And WRT this past weekend in Abu Dhabi, while I have seen a number of people talking about Vettel's run of luck due to the safety cars, I haven't seen anyone note that Hamilton's retirement was also a bit of luck for Alonso. It not only moved Alonso up 1 spot, but more importantly gained him 3 precious championship points (the difference between 18 points for second and 15 points for third). So, it seems that Alonso also had a bit of good

For sure lady luck was riding with him when he hit the wall qualfying and then got to fix it. He then hit another car a.d a drs marker. So much luck it must be used up.
