Well, my heart is with Alonso, of course. "Spain: go no further", "From Madrid to heaven", "Santiago and close your ranks, Spain", "Spain is different" and all that stuff.
However, Lewis is 3 points ahead, isn't he?
Alonso is a double WDC, that explains the odds. Lewis... well, Lewis is "a monster".
Actually, he is a british monster, that explains my bet. I have told already the joke about Alonso dying and going to heaven. Allow me to repeat it, please (or skip it, it's not very good):
Fernando Alonso dies and goes to heaven. He finds there Juan Manuel Fangio, Graham Hill and Tazio Nuvolari boasting.
"I won a race on three wheels and another one with the steering wheel in one hand and steering my car with a wrench stuck into the steering column"
Graham Hill adds:
"Well, I won Indy 500, Le Mans 24 hours and the WDC, which nobody has done since"
Juan Manuel boasts:
"I won 5 championships with 4 automakers, guys"
Then, Alonso, mesmerized by the meeting, adds:
"Allow me to introduce myself. I am Fernando Alonso, a spaniard. I admire you a lot: I tried to follow your steps. I won the WDC when I was 24 and I repeated the feat next year"
The three older pilots are clearly astounded and amazed by this. Alonso is happy because of that: surely these great drivers must be impressed by him winning the championship so young!
Graham Hill turns and says to the other two:
"Wow! I can't believe it... an F-1 pilot from Spain!"
And that's why I bet on Hamilton.
