Allegedly ordered to stop by Renault for an engine/KERS problem but other reports say they were nearly out of fuel. Whatever the reason I think he may get a penalty.

I would pay to see it happen.

It would stop another Red Bull runaway and spice up the championship run.

Sweet!

It's not that I dislike the kid or anything, but we've already seen one German run away with the WDC multiple times.

I'd like to see him come from behind and finish well, but that's not a talent that's included in his bag of tricks. He's much better when he starts out front. Maybe he'll prove me wrong.

I like Vettel and Schumi but I stopped watching F1 around 2002-2004 because it became very predictable. I'm actually glad that it was such a whirlwind of a start during this season.

I would guess Vettel ends up 6th (they can make set-up changes since they pulled the car from parc ferme) and Alonso in 4th

Gonna be a good race tomorrow w/ VET from pitlane.

They will play with setup like you said, and start on hard tires probably. Take care of backmarkers and run long into race.

If Hamster pulls off a win and Alonso beats Vettel, the three of them will be VERY close on points.

Will we see a championship decision in the last race? Can we dare to dream?

oofie - that's what I was talking about. I also lost interest in F1 for a couple of years when the chin was dominating.

Hamilton is 75pts behind Vettel in the WDC. He would need to win every race, with VET not finishing any in the points, and ALO getting very few points... and he would win on tie breaker. I wouldn't call that VERY close on points.

Damage control is VET finishing 7th or 6th, and WEB beating ALO. The two at the top will be close on points when this is all done.

Four guys are still alive, and anything's possible.

Alonso had a 23 point lead over Vettel a few races ago, and two muggings in a row turned that into a 13 point deficit.

I'll take a two-man race going into the finale. Beats an early Vettel lock every time.

The safety car handed him 45 seconds. He lucked out today.

He made the most of it, but he would have never made the podium without the safety car.

45 seconds is a lot for anyone to make up - even a German wunderkind.

Seb: "A chance to fk it up. . ."



Can't believe the 7 second delay missed that.

SC's are part of racing. Sometimes they go for you, sometimes they screw you.
