    Alonso's onboard was the best I could find on Youtube, but the Official Formula 1 Website has Hamilton's pole position from last year (must log in).

    I don't think Ferrari is having performance issues. They had the second best "race pace" car on the grid in Japan and Alonso would have been there fighting for 2nd or 3rd if he did not have his first turn incident (just as Webber would have been up there fighting for a podium spot had he not been taken out by Grosjean). No Ferrari hasn't gotten worse. It's just that Red Bull has gotten so much better than anyone else.

    But the season is far from over, there are still five more races to go.

    If RBR wins next race then championship is over, Vettel will take it.

    If Hamilton wins, we know Suzuka was a fluke (which in some ways it was)

    If Alonso wins, it´s a battle between ALO and VET.

    I voted for Hamilton. Korea is all about having a balanced gar that is good at straights, fast corners and slow corners, and the McLaren is still the most well-rounded car on the grid.

    It will certainly be a very interesting race that could determine the future of the championship battle. Vettel is now within striking distance and the pressure will be on Alonso to keep him at bay.

    And the race will be on my birthday, so it certainly won't be a bad way to ring in my 20's!

    People were saying the championship was lost for Vettel when he retired back in Italy. Predicting things this season is often useless

    If Felipe baby can bring that determination from Suzuka (just look at his face when he was in that room before going for the trophy ceremony in Suzuka, he was like the old Felipe) then I expect him to put that Ferrari in the top 3. :)

    Edit: Is it only me who misses wet weather races? (wet from start to finish)

    Apparently Hamilton did have a small defect on his rear suspension, hence the lackluster performance.
    Should be good for this weekend.
