A great weekend of racing and what a nice track it was. I think the open corners really allowed some nice overtakes. Only black mark for the whole weekend was Ferrari's dirty tactics. While it isn't against the rules what they did, it wasn't fair on Massa who worked hard to get that qualifying position to then be pushed back so Alonso has a better chance. I understand on the track if Alonso caught up to Massa, perhaps let him through a bit easier. That makes sense but to purposely damage his gearbox so he drops back 5 places and also ruin a few other drivers hard work.

I honestly don't think any other team on the grid would do that. I think even Red Bull would say let them race but don't fight too hard. I thought Alonso this year deserved the championship because of how well he drove and consistently got points. Now i hope Vettel wins and Massa finishes higher than Alonso in Brazil.

anyway: even if alonso wins in interlagos, which is highly unlikely, vettel will be able to finish in 4th place for sure.

You just watch,

Massa is going to take Vettel out.

heard it here first.

... and only you think it wouldnt result in a heavy penalty ...

massa and webber might be usefull to hold a place in the points but problem is: webber is too slow and if massa is in front of alonso, ferrari will again unseal his gearbox.

Coca-Cola's Burn brand to sponsor Lotus Formula 1 team

The Coca-Cola Company has confirmed it will sponsor the Lotus Formula 1 team through its Burn brand, as reported earlier by AUTOSPORT.

Burn will join an F1 grid that features increasing amounts of energy drink sponsorship by companies such as Red Bull, TNT and Monster.

"We are proud that The Coca-Cola Company [via Burn] has chosen Lotus F1 Team as the best vehicle to represent the burn brand in its most high profile partnership," said team boss Eric Boullier.

"We are excited to partner with burn to build a new and innovative model for sponsorships that will combine experiences, content creation and social media."

Burn said in a statement that it plans to incorporate "art and music in a way that will break the conventions of traditional F1 sponsorship".

^ Well-said, Helmut. (Y) If Fernando really wants to "fight with blunt weapons", he should race in an HRT or a Caterham.

Hardly well said, this years Ferrari has been a dog handling/performance wise yet Alonso is in title fight with the guy who has the fastest car on the grid by miles.

I hate Alonso but you can't deny that he has dragged that inconsistent Ferrari through 19 races.

what i think is a given is that the ferrari is by far the most reliable car and has a very solid race pace.

ask vettel about the alternator in his car or hami about the gearbox in his car.... they both lost probably between 80 and 100 points this year because of technical problems, while alonso and ferrari lost zero!

how vettel managed to turn arround a over 40 points deficit in a solid lead in the championship is quite sensational.

Hardly sensational when you have the fastest car on the grid.

again: the fastest car means nothing if you dont finish the races. vettel lost probably between 80 and 100 points in total this year because of the alternator failures. alonso had perfect reliability. lost zero points there.

Um, its not like Alonso hasn't lost points this year, he retired at Suzuka after Kimi punctured his tyre, then there was the massive smash at Spa which took him out through no fault of his own, that's 50 points lost straight away.

Vettel has retired twice this year, as many times as Alonso has.

The difference in points losses isn't actually that big. And Alonso may have had better reliability but he's also made fewer mistakes. Challenging the title is easy when you have one of the fastest cars, it's harder in a bad car, and almost everything Alonso has achieved this season apart from the tactical switch made by Ferrari at the last race he's done so entirely on his own merit.

Yeah.. Ferrari is just good for p7 or p8 as today has shown and Alonso is repeating every weekend since suzuka. Oh wait look at massa who is p5 and much closer to the front :p:P:P

Can't wait for the season that Vettel gets a crap car, bet you will switch favourite drivers faster than the current Red Bull is.
