What baffles me is the fact that there are people still saying Alonso deserves to win. After what happened today, all I can do is feel even more disgusted by Ferrari and him.

But if it happened in RB... oh, poor Webber...

Ferrari, what a shame! That may have changed the result of the race, with alonso starting from the other side of the grid. I wonder how long FIA will allow this kind of trick.

It's not fundamentally different from retiring early in a race to help ones chances in the next. No need to get ones pants in a twist.

Ferrari doesn't spread millions of bucks to win a trial in chivalry by armchair pundits when they try their best to stay in the title hunt.

After months of bad mouthing McLaren and calling for various McLaren staff to be sacked, perhaps this is a nice opportunity for the fanboys to say thank you to McLaren for giving Lulu the fastest car, perfect reliability and a great pit stop.

Wont be happening next year. :)

If Lewis hadn't been unlucky this year with reliability problems, he would be fighting along with Vettel and Alonso for the title, easily. Alonso will be closer to the front in Brazil imho. And if it rains, who knows what will happen! Can't wait.

Everybody keeps going on about Hamiltons reliability or Ferrari team orders - irrelevant. Lets be grateful for a damn fine race in America. And better still it will be between two awesome drivers for the title, instead of two awesome drivers and one that is only a great driver.

I thought Vettel made two direction changes trying to fend off Hamilton. Kinda stupid defending with the title on the line. It's a shame this title race has come down to the two biggest crybabies on the grid.

Other than that a pretty entertaining race. I thought overtaking was going to be difficult but luckily I was proven wrong, there were even some none DRS passes...

Look forward to Brasil, just to see what happens and how Vettel and RBR deal with the pressure from not having this wrapped up yet.

Good lad Lewis, showing that, despite not having the best car, the best driver can come through to win on occasion.

Stunning drive, keeping this sport alive. If merc can get him in touching distance next year, he'll do the rest!
