Schumacher can only win the championship in Brazil if Alonso fails to get a single point, i.e. finishes worse than 8th.
“We are a great team. Our guys are the best and I have a great affection for everyone at Ferrari and am always more than satisfied in the way we work. Incidents like today’s can happen and they are part of racing. You win together but you also lose together. Today we did our best, I was leading the race and then my engine broke. That’s the simplest way to sum it up. That is Formula One. We can be proud of what we have achieved since Canada, we were twenty five points behind and no one could have thought we would be back in the fight for the championship but we did it. Now we are nine points behind in the Constructors’ classification and we will do all we can to win this title in Brazil. As for the Drivers, it is lost. I don’t want to head off for a race hoping that my rival has to retire. That is not the way in which I want to win the title.” [Michael Schumacher]
