Conspiracy theory for Brazil

How about this scenario at the end of the Brazil race:

Alonso in front
Raikonen or Massa in second
Hamilton in third

Which of the Ferrari drivers will let Hamilton through to second place to avoid that Alonso becomes champion?

I think Ferrari will be more interested in getting the points so that they win the constructors championship on the track.

Re: Conspiracy theory for Brazil

You have to think on a larger scale.

Ferrari might not want a still young tripple World Champion, that eventually can threaten some of their records.

They already have the Manufacturers Title and in this scenario, Raikonen cannot become the Driver Champion, so I would think that they will have this strategy discussion if this scenario occurs.

Fair point, but I'd stick my neck out and say that Hamilton is likely to become a triple world champion before Alonso does.

You are probably right, but this is here and now.

Of course they haven't, they had to be gifted the title in the courts by their friend Mr Mosely.
