5 more races to go

Finally the Constructor Title of the current Formula 1 season is within the reach of Mc Laren Team. With only 9 points behind that of Renault and with the current form, Mc Laren will have no problem to catch up and lift the Constructor within the next few races.

As for the Driver title, the pictures look rather different. Raikkonen is currently trailing 24 points at second place and to catch up with Alonso, the title leader is definitely an uphill task. It now depend on whether Alonso will bring any cheers to the Mc Laren camp by having one or two non finishes. Renault car has been very reliable when compared to Mc Laren this season. Even if Alonso finish 3rd in all remaining races and Raikkonen win all the remaining races, he will still win the driver title. Mathematically, it still bring some hope but we will have to face the fact that Alonso will be the eventual champion. Not to my liking that that will the result. Guess I will have to wait for another year and hopefully Mc Laren will still be able to maintain the advantage that they are enjoying now.
