Red Bull or Ferrari to win for me. no shocks. Alonso is a good bet.

Jensen 3rd at best.

Hamilton no chance. Cars simply not good enough and neither are the teams tactics.

I would have been a Plus One for that response But I am not so sure - I think its wide open, and Mercedes may well be a contender imho.
Very thankful for everything I have and have been given!

I am considering an each way bet on Jenson for the title.  He was matching the leaders pace and could have been as high as 3rd today, Laurel and Hardy pitstops notwithstanding, this is while the car is still a dog.

Hard at this point to bet against Red Bull - Mercedes are clearly much more competitive than many predicted - I would think we will get a host of different winners

Is it really in keeping with the ethos of F1 to have cars driven at 8/10's to save fuel and preserve tyres and with team orders ?

Vettel showed his true colours today - but as DC said show me someone that hasn't made an error then regretted it - after all we're only human, IMO it was a blatant greed for winning which in any sport has to exist or otherwise why compete?. I suppose considering the history and no love lost between webber & vettel a little awkwardness , a lacklustre apology and a slap on the wrist from Christian Horner he's still come away with the points so hes a winner. can't expect a competitor in his position to settle for 2nd place.  Contrary to his comments I don't think he'll lose much sleep tonight. Awesome to see them battling - that was the best wheel to wheel we've seen for a while. Good to see they didn't take each other out for a change. Seemed like Webber was questioning whether he'll ever be allowed to chase a championship while at Red bull playing second fiddle to seb. my money's on Kimi

I agree hence only risking an each way bet.

I think the problem was today that it normally rains in Malaysia so there is a safety car period which saves loads of fuel, when there wasn't Merc were in a lot of trouble.

Ethos would imply ethics...

See various incidents over the last 7 years for a definition of F1 ethics.

On a completely different subject, what's Pedro de la Rosa up to these days?
