last year Alonso may have delivered the best 19 race (18 or 20) sequence 'I' have witnessed in my life, the fear being that if the car is better this year and he doesn't claim the crown it will be solely because the winner will have either a better car or will simply have put together a better sequence of racing performances. On last years form Vettel wasn't really that far away from him in terms of 'artistic' merit, he managed to score plenty of points when not in a position to win, something the other candidates for the wdc didn't do a particularly good job of (all except Raikkonen)

Don't worry Allan! Alonso has all what it takes to become a world champion without the best car. It's all up to Ferrari now. The should make the car from 0.1 to 0.3s slower per lap than the best at every race and Alonso will do the rest of the job.

Here we go with more idiot talk about how so and so and so and so "deserved" this or that. The bottom line is Sebastian Vettel came out on top. There was no cheating, except when Ferrari clipped the gearbox seal to give Ferdi better track position. Sebastian is the only one who "deserves" the 2012 title because he EARNED IT BY SCORING THE MOST POINTS!
Otherwise, we might say things like Alain Prost deserves a couple of Senna's titles because he "deserved" it more.
All hail the 2012 F1 Champion SEBASTIAN VETTEL!

Learn the rules. Ferrari DID NOT CHEAT last year with the gearbox seal! On the other hand, building a car that breaks the rules, and then being asked to change it for the next race without losing points in the race that the car was used... like Red Bull, IS CHEATING!

wade. what planet do you live on? maybe it is yourself wo should learn the rules!
at all times the bulls were in accordance with the written rule. when newey spotted a loophole, others moaned and fia rewrote the rules to then ban such an item. they were NEVER found to be cheating.

ferrari spotted a loophole, and so did the bulls.
