Wow. 2 races of the F1 season to go and British rookie Hamilton is almost the new F1 champion. True mathematically Alonso could overhaul him but the one thing that Hamilton has is his consistency so I expect to see Lewis finish the races. Only twice has he dropped out of the top 3 whereas the others have faltered at times with crashes and car trouble.
With treacherous conditions in Japan where cars skidded all over the place, Hamilton managed to hold his nerve and just head for the chequered flag whereas Alonso was unfortunate to crash out.
For Hamilton to win in his first season would be a phenomenal achievement. There were question marks from former drivers who questioned whether it was the right thing to do putting a youngster like Lewis into the McLaren driver's seat and he has proved them wrong again and again.
The mind games and tactics from Alonso and Hamilton this year will ensure us we will have a great rivalry in these years to come. But I'm sorry Alonso but your time is over mi amigo. Step aside while the rookie takes your place.
