only 24 points…

alonso wins ferrari's home race and is now third in the championship race

since the beginning of the year, a win in formula one is worth 25 points – instead of 10 points before that, and 9 points until the 80s.

in 2010, we still have five races to go. and it seems to be a spectacular ending, even without schumacher fighting it out for the title in his comeback year. but five other pilots dream of the big title!

webber finished sixth, but he is the new leader in 2010.

the current leader is mark webber, who only managed a sixth place today at monza. before him, lewis hamilton led the way – but a mistake in the first round, when he touched alonso’s car and broke the suspension, leaves him in the first chasing position. said fernando alonso lead the big italian party in ferrari’s home race with an exciting tactical and man-to-man win over jenson button, who is fourth in the standings. sebastian vettel, the young german, saved his weekend by only switching to the hard tyres in the final lap, achieving an incredible fourth position – after having motor problems in qualifying and doing the race.

sebastian vettel in fifth: 163 points, 24 behind his team mate and championship leader mark webber. one point less than one victory. dear reader, this is as if, five races before the end, five pilots were within 10 points last year. INCREDIBLE, i must say.

any mistake, like lewis today, might be fatal. but you better believe that these last races will be fascinating. mark webber is the main favorite for the title, since the remaining races should give the rbr an advantage. but you never know, in f1. even more so in this year.

today, ferrari’s trick (putting everyone on the pit lane and luring button into the box) and their superb trye change gave alonso the win and the third place. this guarantees an even better end to the season, since at least one ferrari is still in the race for the title.
