Default F1: Alonso, Raikkonen or cunty Brit?

down to the wire folks:
http://www.autoweek.com/apps/pbcs.dl...8007/1531/FREE

and now Alonso accuses McLaren crew of sabotaging their own car! LOVE IT MAN! Best F1 season since Schuey started racing.

I'm really rootin' for some miracle so Raikkonen can win. Massa was hypded early in the season, but Raikkonen didn't fall to the pressure and ended w/ 5 wins this season with a SLOWER CAR.

I gotta find a place to watch the Brazilian finale...

Raikkonen FTW!!!

Let the 2 McLarens have the front row. Kimi can have a "so-so start," Massa gets the red mist and takes out both McLarens in Turn 1 in another just-racing accident(nudge, nudge, wink,wink).

I don't understand how anyone can be a fan of Raikkonen. Guy does worse interviews than Shaq, and has the personality of a roll of truck stop toilet paper someone peed on.

I like Raikkonen, who cares what he interviews like...I don't know why but I like his racing and he's been a long time good driver that's never had his full glory.

I mean look at Boris Said...not the friendliest looking fellow, good driver and I like him.

I love to see Ferrari beat Mclaren-mercedes anyday, and Raikkonen is a great driver, but I can't stand the guy. He wins an epic race and in the interview he looks like he might have just gotten back from renewing his license at the DMV - intensely bored and slightly annoyed. Alonso is a total douchebag though. I miss schuey.

Finns have way too many racing champions over the years.

I actually think Lewis Hamilton has a chance at it even with the retirement in China. Barring him, yes I like Kimi, he's gross and seems to enjoy poop and fart humor. Appearantly when there was a press conference involving Schuey's retirement (I think it was), someone asked him what he thought and he said nothing. They asked him if they knew what they were talking about he said,"No, I was taking a ****." You can't buy humor like that.

I love Raikkonen and my English side likes Hamilton(hes a ******* rookie looking at the championship!). I don't really care as long as Alonso doesn't win again.

And this is the best thread title ever.

Hamilton all the way. I was so pissed about the mistake in Shanghai. But, that's racing. I can't say whether it was a rookie mistake or team strategy mistake. Probably both. Alonso is a whiney baby <this is a no whine zone> He should just go away.

In for Spanish suicide note.

I'm tired of seeing Kimi get screwed by his old team. If he's not driving unreliable mclarens, then mclaren is stealing secrets from his new team. He'd probably have the championship locked up if espionage weren't a factor.

The only driver I dislike more than Alonso is Button, because he's a whiny ------...but its not his fault.

Actually, I change my mind, I want Kimi to win, then the FiA will have two Finnish champs on it's hands as long as Marcus Gronholm maintains his lead in WRC.

Alonso is already crying. He's been crying since Hungaroring. And it's for certain he won't be w/ McLaren next year.

So why would he even bother driving in Brasil? I don't get it: your teammate is a the shoe-in champ, you think your team's sabotaging you, you hate your boss. He wins, it's for his team, he loses, it's everybody else's fault.

Raikkonen does his job which is to drive a car to finish line first. i don't give a **** if he looks like Rocky Dennis...

Alonso is obviously a whiny ------. Lewis performed. I wonder how Lewis would have done without Stepney's Ferrari data?

Raikkonen was consistently one of the fastest guys when he drove for McLaren, but the cars almost never went more than half-distance without a mechanical failure. They finally found a way to make the cars reliable, otherwise Hamilton would be just an interesting rookie and Alonso would be another ex-champ who made a poor career decision.

Now Alonso will just step on Kovalainen and go back to Renault.

As much as I want to see Ferrari win too, I think Hamilton's got it in the bag. And Massa will probably win in Brazil.
