2012 F1 title is Sebastian Vettel’s to lose

Published

on

Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso will face tight title fight in the remaining two races in this season climax. Championship leader Vettel made a fantastic performance at Abu Dhabi start from a pit-lane to finish final place on the podium.

Former Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari says that the championship is Sebastian Vettel’s to lose. Now he is working with Pirelli as official test driver and also apart with BBC Radio 5.

Jaime also added that current situation is not easy for either of them [Vettel and Alonso] and anything can happen in the climax.

“Everyone knows he [Alonso] is not fighting with the best tools. He benefited from Vettel’s penalty but it is amazing to see Alonso and the team working so flawlessly under such pressure.” Alguersuari wrote in his column for the BBC.

“Alonso is 10 points behind Vettel in the championship going into the final two races of the season, which is a really small amount – the same as a fifth-place finish.”

“The situation is not easy for either of them. Vettel knows his car is faster. Alonso knows he has to keep on playing his cards, doing his maximum and pressuring Vettel as best he can.”

“If one makes a mistake and the other does not, that’s the end for them.”

Spaniard added, “Anything can happen. It is a question of bringing the car home and not making any silly mistakes, scoring the maximum amount of points they can and each trying to cover the other.”

“But one thing is sure – Vettel has more to lose than Alonso. He is leading and he has a quicker car. Vettel shouldn’t lose it, but he could. All Alonso can do is win, because it already looks like he shouldn’t.”
