Fernando Alonso, A True Champion

We just saw Alonso win his second race in a row in Japan. His input helped catapult the Renault car from below-mediocre status to very respectable. Here is a look at how he placed through this season. An "x" denotes a DNF.

4, 8, 10, x, 6, 10, x, 8, 6, 11, 4, x, 4, 4, 1, 1

I must say, over the course of this season, I have forgiven him for his bitter rivalry with Hamilton last season at McLaren. In fact, in retrospect, I think Hamilton the rookie should have shown more respect to his two-time champion teammate. Alonso should have won last season. Alas.

And by the way, if Hamilton keeps pulling bone-headed moves like he did today, he does not deserve the championship.
