Total WCC points achieved by McLaren was greater than Ferrari if you include Hungary which would have been appealed and possibly won.
, maybe I was wrong, but the fact is that in the end, Ferrari as a team was more consistent than McLaren, especially in the final two races. At least they have shown that they deserved to win, despite being awarded the title due to Spygate, even though factually they were awarded the title. Ferrari managed to lurk behind the two McLaren drivers, and it was just up to Kimi to take advantage, and up to Felipinho to help Kimi in that goal. Bottom line: it's teamwork that wins World Championships, and the team work at Ferrari was in retrospect much better than at McLaren. Hamilton, Alonso, and the whole Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team should actually be glad that this hasn't become a disaster like during the times of Senna vs Prost.

See as a formula 1 fan i hope it is fantastic, as it has the potential, im just worried about little things; complains that "an area" of the track "wasnt lit well enough" and "cos us the championship" or something.
I hate to burst your bubble, but those nightime races are more destined for the European markets, so they can watch the races in Asia at more "acceptable" times instead of waking up at 04:00 am to watch a race they usually watch in the afternoon or early evening. They were never really intended to give F1 a new twist or to imitate Indycar and NASCAR, who have had night races for quite some time.
