I'm afraid the only way for start of something new for Felipe would be two wins in 2013's first two races and meanwhile Alonso would clown himself out of points. Felipe leading by 50 points might bring out the Alonso of 2007. Anyway, great race for Felipe, hopefully we'll see him winning races, and maybe even the title, he already knows what it feels when you win the title, at least for 15 secs.

Actually Kamui got the podium first. Anyway, I'm so happy for both, as well as for Japa, I had to watch both events simultaneously. Unless Kamui and Felipe hadn't been fighting for podium, I'd probably have concentrated only on Tokyo final.

And great for points standings that Seb is now just 4 points away from Alonso. Unfortunately I think this was Lewis's and Kimi's last chance to join the title hunt as Alonso retired. But now I think they're just too far behind.

Then why not? I mean yeah the car is suited to Fernando for next season but I can't see the car being as 'bad' as this year. I reckon Massa (surely he'll stay, there's no other logical option for all the 'hints' going on) will have a good 2013 season.

Realistically I doubt he'll ever finish top 4 in the drivers championship again sadly but yeah, would be the most amazing thing if he could somehow take it next year, he really does deserve it, and to be fair the team owe him a WDC for all the shit he's done for them over the years and how they screwed him when he finally got his chance.

Anyway looking forward to the last 5 races, if Ferrari can have a decent car ready for Brazil it's Massa's best shot of a race win this year, all those times he dominated Interlagos was absolutely beautiful to watch.

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

Will Webber be told to let Vettel beat him in the first corner???
That was the 1st thing that entered my mind when Webber outqualified Vettel

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

Wouldn't be surprised, would be the smart option for sure.

But realistically, does anyone see Vettel not winning tomorrow? Realistically the car fucking up or Webber having an awesome race seem to be the only 2 things stopping him.

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

We have a new leader in the Championship race.

Two notes:
1) Kora GP is horriblely maintained - it's a new circuit yet it is in bad need of repair (especially the goddamn AstroTurf carpet that keeps lifting up in the air and becomes a flying debris)

2) Gangnam was there (he waved the chequered flag like a pussy

That just showed what a great surface carpet is. New circuits are often criticized that they don't penalise if you go wide. Well, today it was better not to go wide. We need more carpet, not only in tennis but also in F1.

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

I hate Vettel victories, they always happen in the same style. He races off after the first corner, extends his lead to outside 1 second so DRS can't be used and he cruises to victory.
I hope Alonso can win the remaining races to stop him

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

Is it me or the races have become more and more boring as the season goes on? Is it because the teams manage the Pirelli tyres better? Those tyres used to be unpredictable, but it seems that these days are over...

That depends on what you think is boring. This season's Pirellis have been unpredictable, but I think they were too unpredictable. I didn't like the clownish races of Montreal and Valencia at all. But maybe I'm a fan of boring races, one of my favourite performances was Schuey and Ferrari changing 3-stop strategy to 4-stopper to get past slower Alonso in France 2003.

And anyway, I don't desire many overtakings, but what I'd like to see would be different tracks more clearly suiting to other teams, making the season more interesting. All the new circuits are too similar, Monza and Spa can produce surprising results even in non-clownish race, remember Force India in 2009.

And I'd like to see again tyre war. Differences between tyre brands would would give advantage to other teams in other races. And different tyres between brands might lead to different tyre strategies, another brand might degrade faster, leading to one more pit stop.

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

Didn't you like the last laps of Montreal 2011 when, all of a sudden, tyres were dead because the drivers had not taken care of them enough? That gave crazy racing, and added something about the cleverness of some drivers and the tyre-bashing of others.

I liked the last laps of Montreal 2011, but you probably meant Montreal 2012. Alonso and Vettel started to lose massively time as their tyres were dead. That was because they didn't make their final pit stops as their tyres still felt good. But the specialty of these Pirellis is that drop-off in performance is suddden when the tyre is too worn out, usually that drop-off is more gradual. Another specialty of Pirellis is that they are very sensitive to track temperature, e.g. Lotus were favourites to win the Spanish GP, but it was colder than expected, and Williams and Ferrari got thir tyres work better. Pirelli tyres brought unpredictability, but that already threatened F1's credibility, I was almost losing all my interest in F1, thankfully last races have been more normal, and I've got my interest back. I just hope the title fight won't end with another contender's tyres completely wearing off few laps before the last race's finish.

And that 2011 Montreal was a great race, and Button truly deserved his victory. He had the fastest car on dry tack, yet he'd had bad luck earlier on wet and he was the last car at one point of the race. But he could catch Seb on dry track and force him into a mistake. Just epic. At this year's Canadian GP, Perez's and Grosjean's podiums weren't as deserved, they had just guessed correctly how the tyres will last.

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

Seb on pole, Alonso 5th. Pretty soon Alonso will be relying on Seb having mechanical failures if he wants to win the world championship.

this come back to Red Bull domination is boring, let alone those horrible Asian circuits that naturally suit so well the Red Bulls.

Re: 2012 FIA Formula 1 · World Championship

I was unable to see the last few races. Looks like I dont lost nothing, just seeing this race in India. Boring to death

Congrats to Vettel and Red Bull for the turn around. Will be, pretty much, the same thing in Abu Dhabi, next Sunday. Unless Alonso make a miracle or Hamilton and Button decides to do something..

Well, Hamilton dominated the Qualifying session and starts on Pole, followed by Webber. With Vettel in 3rd and Alonso in 7th..

Alonso will need to do a miracle to avoid that Vettel increase even more his advantage..
