The Showdown in Sao Paolo

The 2007 season has not been easy. It's been a veritable soap opera of sensationalism, suspense and stupidity. One's attention has been drawn away from the track more often than the sport might desire - but it's nothing new and what's more it's captivated a whole new audience. Essentially this means come October 21st eyes from every corner of the globe will be trained on Sao Paolo, lets hope F1 doesn't disappoint.

I don't have the will to go into the 'off track' background of the 2007 season at the moment (I'm saving that for a more reflective piece at the end of the season). Instead I'm going to focus on the three men that make up the championship chase: Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen. The intention is to analyse each, looking at, character, driving style and how they've arrived at a position to challenge for the 2007 Drivers Championship. Ultimately rating their chances at Interlagos.

Foe no particular reason I'll start with Alonso...
