How the F1 title will be won in Sao Paulo

What do Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso have to do to be crowned champion in F1 2012?
With qualifying at an end, the fight for the 2012 F1 title will now come down to the final race of the season in Brazil, with Sebastian Vettel starting four places ahead of title rival Fernando Alonso.

Vettel holds a 13 point lead going into the race and is favourite to win the crown for a third season in a row, although the potential for a wet race means anything could still happen.

But what do the two need to do in order to win the championship?

Sebastian Vettel will be champion if:
• He finishes inside the top four (min 285 points), regardless of where Alonso finishes (max 285 points) Vettel would be champion based on race victories
• Alonso fails to finish on the podium (max 272 points), regardless of where Vettel finishes (min 273 points)

Fernando Alonso will be champion if:
• He wins the race (285 points) and Vettel finishes no higher than fifth (max 283 points)
• He finishes second (278 points) and Vettel finishes no higher than eighth (max 277 points)
• He finishes third (275 points) and Vettel finishes no higher than tenth (max 274 points)

"I suppose ferrari will be cutting the seal on massa's gearbox" Nah, Massa has to stay where he is so that he can "accidentally" rear-end Vettel in the first corner.

I don't understand the mentality of so-called F1 fans on this site. Hoping for crashes and talking about drivers taking other drivers out so the driver they like can win the championship is just plain sick and shows that they are not fans of the sport. People go on about Vettel being lucky to have the fastest car but for a lot of the season McLarens have shown more pace. Is it better to have the most reliable car like the Ferrari? Is Alonso lucky to have such a reliable car and such an accommodating number 2 driver? I hope for a clean race with no incidents and may the best man win.
