Vettel has a far superior car and he only beats Alonso for the drivers championship by 1 point.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I can't see a "far superior" car - I see one with consistently less top speed and one that had big issues keeping going early on. On Alonso's side, there's a Massa that's looked stronger than him for good parts of the second half of the year. "Mediocre" my lower back. Well-deserved title is far more like it. Beating the type of adversity Vettel did today, that's a champion's job. I won't talk down Alonso though, he put up a hell of a fight.
