What are you people talking about? Ferrari only put Massa back last time because Alonso was on the dirty side of the track and that he can gain a place.

This time Ferrari will keep Massa where he is and so that he can plow into Vettel in turn 1. Much easier than to win the championship this way, than to actually put in an effort to race.

At least that what I think those scumbags at Ferrari would do.

Ferrari "penalised" Massa last time because not only it helped Alonso to gain one place but they were also very afraid that being on the wrong side of the track would make him lose plenty of spots at the start. Not the case here.

Whats up with Button. 1st he said "Alonso more deserving of title" then said "Vettel under bigger pressure." Both can be found on autosport dot com.

Its very obvious he's jealous of Vettel because of the records hes breaking. Hes already the youngest double world champion and tomorrow could be a triple world champion and the youngest triple WDC in the history of the sport. And he's German which explains why Button is playing the mind game in the 2 above quotes to try and get under Vettel's skin.

Im a Alonso fan and in both cases i will be happy tomorrow if my driver wins or if Vettel wins because there seem to be people who hate him just because of his nationality and 2- because of his success. Sad how jealous some people are.

It's a waiting game for gearbox openings.
The following is all pure speculation, nobody could seriously expect that any honourable, honest and moral team could resort to such a tactic.
If Fiat open Felipes gearbox and promote Alonso to 7th and the preferred side of the track then RB could open Marks and put Alonso back on the unclean side again. Then McLaren could open both gearboxes and put Vettel on pole.
If Fiat don't open Felipes gearbox and hence leave him next to Vettel on the grid then I would be very worried we could have a first corner "accident". That, of course, would then leave Mark to ensure that Alonso doesn't finish higher than 4th.
