Now that's what I find more interesting. Can Vettel win WCC all by himself?
This is very close between Mercedes and Ferrari and, to a lesser extent, Lotus. For me, it is probably the main point of interest for the rest of the season since the stakes are fairly high financially (particularly for Lotus, I would have thought). It tightened up some more today, with Ferrari and Mercedes now separated by only one point, and Lotus reeling them both in a bit. This is not being talked about much, but to me it seems to be an important piece of context for the race between Hamilton and Alonso today, for example. The WCC has important implications, not just for teams but for drivers. It is almost certainly why Massa lost his seat. Interestingly, the combined results of Alonso and Raikkonen this year would put them well in the lead of the WCC if they were in the same team.
As of now, the standings are:
Red Bull 402
The next little scrap is interesting too.
Force India 62
That is an interesting one (the fight for P2). Earlier in the season, it appeared (up to Spain?) that Ferrari was the car to have, and that they were not leading both championships by then due to their own doing. However, whatever right they were doing, they started acting as if that didn't matter, and have quite clearly lost the plot. Hope they find it for the final 5.
Then we have Mercedes, which up to Hungary looked as the fastest car out there. Not only they were the dominating force in Qualifying, but after their "we are not cheating" tyre test, they were a real threat for the races, as their string of poles, victories and podiums from Monaco to Hungary proves.
And then, there is Lotus. Never the fastest car on Saturday, never the fastest car on Sunday, but very, VERY solid with their tyres all year long, and always "almost there" in terms of pace. They won the season opener, and since then, have been getting podiums they shouldn't have had given their saturdays. Probably, right now (and this might change in a weekend's time) the most solid of the three teams facing the end of the season. However, 45 points is a long stretch in 5 races...
I would guess that Mercedes will continue to be mercedes and have the odd setup error (or driver error) here and there, and let Ferrari grab the P2 again. However if Merc manages to keep it together, I guess the order will be Merc-Ferrari-Lotus.
And on the other fight (FI-McLaren) I think right now it seems like McLaren have the best car on race day, so I guess that one will go to Woking.
