Still 7 races to go so possible..but he will need SV to have some tech. issues and some aid from Massa, especially in quali as he surges very well come race time.
Kimi will play important role in Alonso's chances. Not with any particular intent but if he lands in between while racing his own race - could prove a disaster for ferdi

Relying on a Vettel DNF now and some poor results to have a chance, calling his team a bunch of idiots (geniuses) on the radio suggests he knows it's all over.

Vettel deserves the title (and the others), the car hasn't been miles ahead and he's maximised his results when he had to and driven round car issues. A class act.

Yes I agree Vettel deserves the title but more exciting if it was closer in the points, don't wish anyone to have DNFs just good fair racing. Alonso seemed a lot happier after this race at Monza. Alonso & Seb are most definitely the most constant drivers in 2013, good luck to both of them for the remainder of the season.

taz. good point about seb driving around issues.. despite his pits warning seb about his tyre vibrations, he still went on and posted quicker laps. and then when short shifting due to gearbox woes, he again was able to lap even faster! and had to be warned to slow down!

Was away watching BSB. Sat down last night to watch the "Highlights".

Surprised that that Sky could fill an hour!!

I have been a fan of F1 since 1980 and it is getting very dull, vettel wins again, blah, pitstop strategy blah.

Any chance they can install the sprinklers???
