The championship is Vettel's now unless Ferrari pull out something magical with the car, especially if RBR are implementing new bodywork for the next race.

It's far too early to tell. RBR have had reliability issues before; who's to say they won't have similar issues again?

The WDC won't be decided before the last race in Brazil.

Interesting Quali, shame the Toro Rosso kinda ruined the pole shootout, but nice for Webber to get Pole, should be an good race tomorrow.

Yeah, it was a strange quali. Originally it looked like Hamilton and Alonso were struggling and look how it finished.
I don't think anyone will catch Red Bull tomorrow. I think it will be interesting to see if they ask Webber to give up the position to Vettel if it stays as it is at the end of the race.
Webber is a smart guy and i'm sure he would.

From hero to zero: Kamui Kobayashi. Seriously, what the hell was his banzai move after the start about?

Ferrari being as subtle as always on the pit radio. 'Felipe, you're too close to Fernando.'

Sigh........... what is going on with McLaren, they've been gradually going backwards all season, with accidents and retirements because of mechanical failures, now they've lost Hamilton. Even Ferrari is looking in better shape and they started this season on the backfoot.

I don't think they have a cat in hells chance of getting either driver or constructor to top of championship this year.

I hope the MP4-28 is going to be better than this abomination,

Even in Formula 1, you can't escape it (they even had him waving the chequered flag at the finish). Thank god it was funny though. :p

Sebastian Vettel set to join Ferrari in 2014, but Massa stays for 2013

Double world champion Sebastian Vettel is set to join Ferrari in 2014, with Felipe Massa staying at the Italian team for 2013.

Sources inside Ferrari say they have signed a contract with Vettel, 25, with an option to join in 2014 depending on their results.

The contract is likely to define a position Ferrari must occupy in the title race at a point in 2013.

Vettel's potential arrival at Ferrari has been sanctioned by Fernando Alonso.

The Spaniard, 31, has a say in the identity of his team-mate and vetoed the idea of Lewis Hamilton joining the team earlier this year.
