This year's championship seems to be the one that nobody wants to win. Reigning champion Kimi Raikkonen has drifted in and out of contention during an under-par season before crashes at Spa and Valencia put and end to his hopes. With Renault not quick enough for most of the year, double champion Fernando Alonso was never really in it. Neither was Heikki Kovalainen.
Robert Kubica and BMW Sauber shouldn't really be in after their quiet patch mid-season, but somehow Hamilton and Massa have contrived to produce another three-way contest in the final two races - just like last year.
Enough of the hot-headed lunges and clumsy driving. Someone needs to step up and show that they actually deserve to win this title, not just inherit it because they didn't make quite as many mistakes as the other guy. The last two races have done little but highlight Alonso as the only true class act in the field, even in the Renault.
