After more than two years without posting, I came back to say that, ALONSO WILL NEVER BE A F1 CHAMPION AGAIN, Vettel will do to him what Valentino Rossi did with Sete Gibernau.

F1 has a truly and deserved champion with Sebastian Vettel ... The spirit of Ayrton Senna lives with this fantastic driver and what a nice kid.

I think Vettel did a great job this year. He didn't have the best car on many occasions and still managed to prevail for the championship. I'm not sure why many of you don't think he is deserving, he works his butt off to win. You could see his talent even in the Torro Rosso. He has to be sure had some growing pains along the way but he has learned his lessons well.
Congratulations Seb Well Done.

I was on the edge of my seat most of the race- it has been a great season!

And I am thrilled we have a deserving champion.

It was a close thing- the incredible luck of Ferrari almost was enough for the luckiest man in F1 to be a 3rd time WDC, but not quite..

To his credit, the luck alone would not have put Alonso in second place- he drove incredibly well all year and had a team mate who was willing to hand him grid spots and podiums whenever possible.
But without the luck he had this year, Alonso would have been much further down the order.

@jimmy c
Haven't we been down this road before?
Didn't I explain the actual situation to you?

A brief synopsis:
Ferrari starts the year with a car that is far slower than any other top team- looks more like they will be fighting in the mid-ranks for the year.

Alonso pulls off a win surprising everyone, including Ferrari.

Many incidents this year, most of which aided Ferrari and Alonso. (Reliability issues for McLaren and RBR, accidents by other teams, etc.)

Without all of these things happening, Alonso could have driven twice as hard and never have been in contention.

Without Alonso driving amazingly well, all the other stuff wouldn't have mattered either, but it doesn't change the fact that LUCK is a large part of why Alonso even had a shot. Luckiest man in F1.
End of story.
