Alonso's Championship in Question

The 100,000 dollar fine dished out by the FIA after Hockenheim in July may have a true cost greater than the financial one.

If the current championship leader Fernando Alonso goes on to win the 2010 F1 Championship he will need a margin of 8 points or more.  The current margin is 11 points.

Otherwise the victory will be devalued in the minds of his rivals and fans.

Whether Red Bull or McLaren will support one of their drivers has so far not been confirmed.
If one of their drivers secures the championship without any obvious team orders, the sport will be seen as a race between individuals rather than just a slickly managed brand promotion.
