Congratulations Fernando!

World ChampionWell I'm not a Renault supporter, and I think that Raikkonen and M. Schumacher are better drivers but, despite all of that, well done Fernando. Who a minute ago won his first (of many?) Formula 1 Drivers' Championship.

It has been a suprisingly unpredictable season, with Renault being super strong at the very start of the season and Maclaren very quickly showing that they had the fastest (but not very reliable) car. However Fernando Alonso and Renault's consistency have stood them in good stead. Fernando is now the youngest ever winner of the Formula 1 Drivers' Championship and I believe the very first Spaniard to win it as well. I'm sure his mum is very chuffed!

Looking forward to a Ferrari revival next season though!

The cheeky buggers at www.fernandoalonso.com/ had updated the home page a few laps before the end of the race declaring Fernando the World Champion.

Very unsporting and underhanded behavior, everthing we have come to expect from a world champion in the Schumacher era ;)

There's hope for him yet!

Quite.

I've been forced to eat my words over this wee chap - never expected him to win anything...still, Kimi will nail it next year provided he doesn't fall off any more yachts or end up in any more gardens, half naked and drunk as a skunk.
