championship alonso's to take


before i start, here are some noteworthy news and gossips:
- who wants a hooligan as a director? webber voted off gpda
- montoya slams button, the japanese hates button, and so is everybody else.
- kimi fucks up, and is proven to be human afterall.

as good as done []

what the? yeah, kimi fumbled under pressure and made an error before the first corner, possibly flat-spotted his tyre along the way. he couldn't quite recover and only managed to qualify fifth. alonso took the pole.

alonso is going to make history at brazil this weekend for being the youngest driver ever to win the drivers championship. it doesn't matter where everybody else finishes, or whether kimi wins the race, alonso just needed to finish on the podium. i don't see him not finishing on the podium, so it's as good as done.


unless kimi wins the race, montoya took second, and button third. or maybe alonso makes a mistake and crashed out. or maybe it was knocked behind by pizzonia/webber/sato. or maybe the car died on him. or maybe the weather played a little trick on alonso.

of course, there's still the constructor championship to watch out for. obviously it isn't as interesting as the driver's championship. and it is possibly's mclaren's anyways.

i'm not sure whether i'll watch the race or not, because it's live late at night. depends whether i can keep my eyes open, because i'm not sure what i'll be hoping to see. hopefully there will be plenty of dramas (ie accidents, especially for alonso!). :)

if you want to be part of the 'historic' moment, then stay up and watch the race.
