Formula One World Championship – No Change Just Tightening

by F1Fan on July 27, 2010

The Formula One World Championship after the German Grand Prix didn’t change much, at least from an overall positions stand point. Its just got an awful lot closer at the top with Ferrari closing in on McLAren and Red Bull after Ferrari’s one two finish at the Hockenheimring circuit.

Sebastian Vettel third place finish in his home country race allows him to draw level from a points perspective with his team mate Webber, although Webber is still shown ahead of Vettel because he has more actual race wins.

So the constructors championship is turning into a real three horse race and after the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend Ferrari may be even closer on points if they maintain their current performance.

Hi,

what do you think about Ferrari Scandalonso?
Here in Brazil, we have too much people angry. Ferrari, Fiat and Santander will be boicoted by brazilians F1 fans.
A trap feeling in the air.

I can understand the Brazilian Fans reaction. I was hoping that Massa would win, he definitely deserved to in my opinion.

Although Alonso was catching him pretty quickly before he was told to let him by. I doubt that Alonso would have been able to overtake Felipe without making a very risky passing attempt. So from Ferrari’s Perspective a guaranteed 42 points is far better than no points at all if Massa and Alonso were to take each other out.

Also Alonso has many more points in the Drivers championship than Massa so from the teams perspective it makes sense for Alonso to get maximum points and increase Ferrari’s chances of winning both the constructors and drivers championship.

Like it or not Formula One is a team sport after all.
