Alonso almost there

Fernando Alonso's win at Suzuka Japan and Michael Schumacher's retirement on lap 36 means that the defending Formula 1 champion is now the clear favourite to retain his title at the last race in Brazil. For Schumacher to win he will need to win the last race and will also need Alonso to finish outside the top eight, in other words fail to score a point. That's asking for too much I think and therefore Alonso has one hand now on the championship.

The constructors gap has now increased to nine and Ferrari will need a ten point difference between their scores and Renault's in order to win that one. That means if Ferrari get the first two positions then Renault should score at most eight points for Ferrari to win and that doesn't look easy at all but is achievable.

Whatever happens at Interlagos it has been a very interesting season and there could still be some surprises, you just never know.

Anything can happen in Formula One so we cant discount MS pulling off a coup in Brazil.

You are right Tyndale, the problem is requiring Alonso not to score a single point. Unless he retires from the race or something that's difficult to restrict him to ninth place and above.
