Fernando is very very unlucky. He has been driving like crazy, much better than anyone else this season. His car is just medicore or even worse compared to the others' and even so he is still in the lead. It is so painful to see his lead melting so fast. Wish anything happen cos he is the man who deserves the title.

you should open a poll named "sensation of 2012: hello, it's me again", but make sure this time the options will be "despite his mediocre OR EVEN WORSE COMPARED TO THE OTHERS, and his very very bad luck, Alonso wins the title because he's bestest :love: " and "with it's car performance, mclaren and red bull will win all of the remaining qualis and races"

Are you sure about that? I can say the opposite for a very number of occasion this season and previous seasons. Yet, that necessarily doesn't mean he is lucky or unlucky for that matter, it only means it is Formula 1. Vettel, Hamilton and even Raikkonen deserve the title this year. Granted, Alonso has been doing an impeccable job this year, but it's one of these things when you need a machinery to be able to win. Alonso just doesn't have this, but he may well have it in the future. So what? I don't think the merit concept does apply here, as there are lots of lots of drivers who deserve titles such as Gilles Villeneuve. It's circumstances that matters, not luck.

Edit: Reading Zava's reaction, in hindsight, I shouldn't have bothered to reply I guess.

What should the options be again? I was gonna create the thread, but I got confused.

Option C. should be "Fernando would win the WDC in a HRT"

Sky made funny predictions with the drivers movements... most interesting was Hulk at Ferrari and Massa at Sauber. I don't see Massa at Sauber. No mention of Alguersuari which was weird..

I liked how they tried to place Sutil everywhere, it's clear to me they don't believe he just tried to deliberately punch a hole in the douchebag's neck, which is good enough for me.

I hope Sutil gets a seat.

Hm, Hulk has just been asked wether he prefers to speak Italian or Switzerdeutsch, he smiled somewhat creepy and answered he likes English the most. Looks like he has a good drive for next year to me the way he reacted.

I'm pretty sure they speak mostly English in Maranello.

Lewis saying 'that was a struggle'. I wonder if the new front wing test is hurting McLaren.

Parc Ferme is in effect from the beginning of qualifying... only the front wing angle and tyre pressures can be changed.

I think so, especially if Alonso could outqualify him today.
