    Default F1 - who would have won ?

    If the rules HAD been changed, and the championship was to be based on the number of wins, rather than points

    who would have won and would it be a better competition ?

    Would it still be the Button has-been ?

    I think it would have been completely over about 4 races ago.

    And effectively it would have been dead from about the halfway point in the season because Jenson didn't need to win any more races - they just had to stop Vettel from winning. Brawn could have used blocking strategies to hold up Vettel and let the McLarens/Ferrari's drive off into the distance to get the win. Vettel would have overtaken the Brawn's but only finished 2nd/3rd.

    This plan only came up because Hamilton had fewer wins than Massa last year causing some to say that Massa was a more deserving champion. However, Hamilton actually took more chequered flags - Massa's extra 'win' was due to one race result being changed after the finish (Spa).

    Button would have way more wins. Interestingly, Vettel has 3 wins and Webber, Hamilton & Barichello have 2 each. So after tomorrow's race Hamilton could end up 2nd (or 3rd depending on details) if he wins.

    Fuel weights in now. Hamilton lighter than the Red Bull's. McLaren kicking themselves a bit - they could have put another 5 laps of fuel in and he would still have been on pole.

    Probably won't make a difference. If Hamilton gets a clean start, he should sprint off into the distance. Unless he gets a safety car at the wrong moment (quite possible on a new circuit), he has this race in the bag.

    The pit exit might prove influential.
    Bit of a shame about the fuelling (for McLaren) but I have a feeling that the Red Bull team will not want to be blowing another engine so may not be gunning it. They seem to have been cautious recently? Rubens looks a bit stuffed if he wants second in the drivers chamionship

    What a complex though - very impressive.

    Anyway, back here tomorrow for the usual CUK expert analysis?

    I'm thinking it's going to be a very, very wet race.
