I have just opened up a topic with some assumptions to take into consideration.

I'll probably remember this as the year Maldonado actually won a race. Fair to say the most surprising GP winner in a decade.

Felipe winning the Brazilian gp would be kind of fitting after the year he has had, kind of like how Webber won last year after a difficult year.

Close
Felipe winning is very unlikely
but McLaren winning all the remaining races is even more unlikely
The team or the drivers will probably find a way to screw up, even if the car has a huge advantage

The Ferrari turning in to a mediocre car and Alonso winning the title in it would be a shock. Why would the competitive F2012 turn mediocre at this stage?

Despite being a long life Ferrari-fan, I think our car still lacks some speed in qualy as showes in Hungary and Spa. At Monza the F2012 prove to be very strong, but that's a genuine unique track, so it can't be a reference point.

Very surprising, but Fisichella's Brazil win in 2003 is another candidate :D

Not many people have confidence in Felipe baby :p .

I voted for McLaren winning all of the remaining races. Their car may be the best at the moment, but the pecking order could easily change before Brazil, and there's still seven races left. Plus, Jenson's early exit at Monza shows that the MP4-27 isn't bulletproof either.

I'm an Alonso fan and I find the option of Fernando ridiculous. Ferrari is not a mediocre car, and it wasn't even so at Australia. As many of us said they just needed to understand the car and do some improvements. It's not the fastest car, but mediocre? NOT really!!

Out of the given options, I'd choose Lewis going to Mercedes (IMO it would be a shock since I just believe McLaren is better suited for him).

The only surprising thing on that list would be Felipe baby winning a race.

I think there's more chance of Felipe winning a race than McLaren winning every single remaining race..

None of those suggestions are sensational.

Button signing for Mercedes would be.

Like others said one choice is not like the others.

And in relation to that : the biggest shock would be Alonso losing the title because he has been damn good so far.

The sensation i feel about 2012 is confusion and weariness.

SO much happens at every race now, that i am worn out. Also, there are just far too many of them!! I am starting to not be bothered about missing races now, i need to take back my weekends.

At a place where oftenly people do exactly the extreme opposite of it (anything to downgrade Alonso's achievements), what do you expect? Extremes attract other extremes. Internet.

I have just opened up a topic with some assumptions to take into consideration.

Very unbias poll, especially about the choice voting for Alonso in inferrior Ferrari, but, it was toss for me between Massa being allowed to win, and technical saga ended. I voted for technical saga is over this year. Massa has better chances to be in P1.

Don't forget that he first has got to dodge 23 other cars.

Sort of like me saying.. despite the handicap of his astonishing good looks and outstanding intelligence, HoldenRT wins the 2012 award for human of the year.

You could have put 'Elvis rides a unicorn to victory in Texas' and it would still be less ridiculous than that.
