Go Fernando and give your best as usual. I hope that you manages to win the title and beat Vettel....Sorry I would say Adrian Newey because at the moment he is your only rival, considering that Hamilton can't do it because McLaren always falters in the ned.

Please give me a break Alonso fanboys bullying that his only rival is Adrian Newey! Or tell me why a good driver like Mark Webber can't do much with similar car than Vettel? Alonso is not that extra ordinary driver as you like to think, or Vettel just ordinary driver with best car like you think, or in that case Webber would be a very bad driver (which he isn't). Just think before you make such a stupid comment without real facts to back it up.

Anything can happen and probably will. I like Seb and wish him the best, but Fernando is the most deserving driver for this championship. He has managed to get every ounce of performance out of an inferior car, and has shown he is the complete racing driver.

@Firestorm...

Saying that Vettel cant win without Newey, then blaming McLaren for Hamilton not winning is about as irrationally fanboi as you can get.

I bet you argue with math too...

@mad F1 bull and cknopp
You should reconsider your math. Every-one in the world of F1 (including Lauda which clearly supports Vettel in this campign) says that Vettel is the favourite to win because beside his qualities he has THE FASTEST CAR. Thats say it all.As for my comment about Hamilton lets make maths together...Lewis currently has 165 pts. If McLaren didn't faltered at least at Singapore and Abu Dhabi(not including the other times and many mistakes made by his team) he would have 215 pts now. And Vettel would have 246 pts, Alonso 239 pts. So he would be in the title war with inferior equipment than Vettel. As for Webber, yea I agree he isn't a bad driver but he losts to much at the start of the race. Remember South Korea and UAE and many other times. Even Vettel which clearly is better than him can't make much overtakes excluding the Force Indias, Saubers, Mercedeses and the struggling Button, but only when he is struggling. Remember what Alonso did to both McLarens in India pl

firestorm. after your anti newey rant yesterday, you are now into the what-ifs.yes lulu has lost points this year, but then again, so has vettel and so has alonso. its all part of the game.

why not just sit back and enjoy the racing no matter what the outcome.

by the way, did you do research yesterday as i suggested? if you did, could you now list all the undeserving drivers who have only won by being in a newey car? and then list all the undeserving drivers who won only because they had a chapman car, etc etc

Great spirit again Fernando I support you all the way.

Thanks for putting the right focus on the championship.

Thanks crash for not putting more posts up for the 'fan boiz', and giving Fernado supporters a chance.

Not anymore he's not, as much as a like Fernando and I truly believe that he is the most complete driver in F1(not fastest) Ferrari has once again let him down, it's gotta be demoralizing the pace of the RB, not to mention he also gotta worry about Mclaren and Lotus, not taking away anything from Vettel, I also believe that you gotta perform with what you got(best car=Championships) unlike Webber, that doesn't deliver. A part of me hope Ferrari closes the gap this weekend but another wants them to get blow away, so they can make some drastic changes and change in philosophy, this is ridiculus .
