    2012 S Korean F1 Grand Prix at Yeongam

    Just a week to go till the S Korean race on back to back weekends ... somehow I don't see Alonso holding onto his championship lead for much longer ... he has been the stand out driver this season totally outperforming his car .... But that isn't enough when others have a faster car ... McLaren should have wrapped up the title long ago but have lost so many points ... RBR has stayed in the fight and have a faster car than Ferrari ...

    Yep, it's now going to be a close battle between Alonso and Vettel. Both finish very strong, know how to drive home 4th and 5th too... It'll be very interesting but the most important aspect is not who wins the last races, but who achieves the best median scores.. that is drive the car home in the points. Alonso has been the kind in this, but you see how dangerous it is to start from 5th-8th or whatever... traffic! For both drivers, the Quali takes on a new importance due to the race position. None can allow to be crashed out anymore... every point counts kiss

    Vetted for the title. The RBR looked back to its strong self again in Japan..

    F1in 2013 is going to be a cracker, car are going to get even closer in terms of performance..

    I agree throt ... I also think that SV will do it for a 3rd time in a row ...

    I don"t think 2013 will see similar kind of performance equity. 

    The big teams already discovered grounds to recover lost downforce and we can see they are pulling ahead which will be translated onto next year due to stable technical regulations.

    Since LH is moving to Mercs and Ferrari's lack of aerodanimc know-how/tunnel calibration that will drag onto next year again as they are already well into the design of F13, I believe it's gonna be another RB year as Button has no means to fight with them on his own, even though he might have very strong car.

    So 4th in a row for RB quite likely...
