Quoting EddieGunsmoke (Reply 2): It's all up to the Mercedes engine. Mclaren can take a 1-2 win as long as the engine doesn't fail. And hopefully Montoya won't mess it up in the final laps again...
Raikkonen and McLaren have been faster than Alonso/Renault this year (especially in the second half of the season), if you don`t get to the finish, you don`t get any points and McLarens (and especially Mercedes) reliability has been poor this year in comparison to the other teams.
Generally, the reliabilty of the other teams this year has been outstanding. Martin Brundle was putting it down to the teams not being able to touch the cars between qualifying and the race and so they weren`t taking the cars apart all the time.

Fernando will probably take the drivers title, but the title that means more to Ron Dennis is the constructors title and thats still wide open. A 1-2 for McLaren will put them in the box seat going into the last races to go hard for the constructors title.
Hopfully Kimi wins the race and Alonso has a bad showing so it can atleast be taken to the Chinese Grand Prix so we can all watch a clifhanger final race.
I certainly hope they will (me), who thinks Fernando goes for the win to boot ?
I do, go Fernando!!!!!!! But unless Kimi blows another engine and Montoya flies off the road again, McLaren 1-2 should finally be on the cards. (but how many races in a row have we been predicting this now?)

Quoting Scbriml (Reply 10): I hope not! Rain and Interlagos don't go well together.
interms of safety for drivers, yes. Interms of action, NO. Anyone remember Interlagos 2 years ago, that was an awesome race, apart from that Alonso got injured. Just amazing how Fisichella won in a Jordan. So, if it rains in Interlagos this weekend, i wouldn't be surprised to see Fisichella at the top step of the podium.
