F1 » Lauda, Webber predict final round showdown


Niki Lauda and Mark Webber both continue to tip Sebastian Vettel as this year's F1 world champion, but don't reckon he'll wrap the title up before Interlagos.

a rather obvious prediction (that title will be decided in brazil)

the only way that seb can win title in texas is for him to score 15 points more than ferdi, and that is nearly impossible

Quotes from Lauda ex WDC

Vettel " has the fastest car"

" because Ferrari cannot compete with Red Bull "

Both these points are regularly disputed often with high levels of animosity by a certain clique of amateur posters here ,whenever someone who is not a Vettel fan says it

I know who's professional opinion that I think holds more weight and validity compared to mere Playstation racers

I'm not sure Lauda's mind stays made up on anything for long enough for it to even be considered a "change". It's more just a constant flow of garbage, a lot of which unfortunately seems to find a way out of his mouth.

Thats so amateurish. Someone (Hammond on Topgear) said that "Race drivers are dumb" - its true. Only an Alonso DNF can give title to SV in US. It will be decided in Brazil but the way its going- it wont be a showdown- just a forgone conclusion with Alonso having to cover 17+ points in one race - impossible (Vettel DNF may be then)

abhishek. do your sums! alonso is 10 points behind. if seb wins, then he gets 25 points, and alonso was fourth, he gets 15 points (i think--forgotten the scale) then seb would have the wdc on count back. now if ferdi wins and seb didnt score,then seb would be 15 points behind going to brazil.

'nearly impossible'....

Even with the likes of Maldonado, Grosjean and Perez on the grid? Unless Alonso can get out of the dodgem car group on the grid, it could easily be all over by turn 2...

Lets not forget the fact that the US gp is an unknown, nobody will know how their car will be on that track. For all wee know, it could be a Macca and Lotus track and the Red Bulls and Ferrari bunched together mid field or the Mercedes splitting them up. Lets not think it a foregone conclusion that Vettel will win this one and Alonso will bridge the gap by a large amount.

You are right. The only reason I say DNF for Alonso, becasue I dont expect the guy to finish lower than fourth in any case (unless Ferrari screw up). So the title challenge will go to Brazil in all probability.
