F1 Championship Contenders

Tomorrow is an exciting day for motor sports as the sold-out Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix the Final Race of 2010.
Here is the run-down of the championship taken from planetf1.com

Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton are the four men still in with a shout of winning the 2010 Drivers’ Championship at the season finale in the UAE.

Two-time Champion Alonso, on 246 points, is favourite to win this year’s title as he enjoys an eight-point lead over Webber heading into the final race in Abu Dhabi. Vettel is a further seven points adrift while Hamilton is 24 points behind Alonso.

– If he wins, Alonso needs to finish no higher than P3
– If he finishes P2, Alonso needs to finish no higher than P6 and Vettel no higher than P2
– If he finishes P3, Alonso needs to finish no higher than P7 and Vettel no higher than P2
– If he finishes P4, Alonso needs to be finish no higher than P9 and Vettel no higher than P2
– If he finishes P5, Alonso needs to finish P10 and Vettel no higher than P3

Sebastian Vettel (Right)
– Any position lower than second will see him finish the season empty handed
– If he wins, he needs Alonso to finish P5 or lower
– If he finishes P2, he needs Alonso to finish no higher than P9 and Webber no higher than P5
