F1 next weekend

Alonso is champion if:

* he is 1st or 2nd
* he is 3rd or 4th AND Webber is 2nd or lower
* he is 5th or 6th, AND Webber is 3rd or lower, AND Vettel is 2nd or lower.
* he is 7th or 8th, AND Webber is 4th or lower, AND Vettel is 2nd or lower.
* he is 9th, AND Webber is 5th or lower, AND Vettel is 3rd or lower.
* he is 10th, AND Webber is 6th or lower, AND Vettel is 3rd or lower.
* he fails to score a point, but Webber is 6th or lower, AND Vettel is 3rd or lower, AND Hamilton is 2nd or lower.

Webber is champion if:

* he wins, AND Alonso is 3rd or lower.
* he is 2nd, AND Alonso is 6th or lower, AND Vettel is 3rd or lower.
* he is 3rd, AND Alonso is 7th or lower, AND Vettel is 2nd or lower.
* he is 4th, AND Alonso is 9th or lower, AND Vettel is 2nd or lower.
* he is 5th, AND Alonso is 10th or lower, AND Vettel is 3rd or lower.

Vettel is champion if:

* he is 2nd, AND Alonso is 9th or lower, AND Webber is 5th or lower.
* he is 3rd, AND Alonso fails to score a point, AND Webber is 6th or lower, AND Hamilton is 2nd or lower.

Question is:
What happens when Vettel is leading with Webber in second and Alonso in third? Will Vettel let Webber pass? If he does, it will not be until the end with hope that Alonso will have a failure before he has to yield.
Not team orders if the driver decides on his own...right?

Red Bull would look like fools if Vettel is leading and doesn't yield to Webber with Alonso in the running. They love Vettel within the team but that would not put him over well I'd think. Somehow I think Alonso will win this albeit Webber would be the better F1 story to claim the title.

I don't believe it constitutes "team orders" if a teammate, mathematically out of it, yields to have their teammate win..

I agree... I'd love to see Webber win it this year. He's an awesome guy (from what we hear in the media anyway).

Drivers can let each other pass whenever they want. Team orders are only when the bosses communicate to a driver to let someone pass. Red Bull has been very vocal this season about NOT issuing team orders and letting drivers compete (a little BS in there). With this line of thinking, you can be sure they have prepared ahead of time when/if Vettel should let Webber pass.

Personally I'd like to see Webber out qualify everyone and lead from start to finish, it would be so satisfying for him to do it this way.

Hamilton can win if Alonso is out of the points, Vettel is third or worse and Weber is 6th or worse.

Hopefully the eventual Driver's champion wins the race. I'm going for Alonso, Australia and Germany already have too many World Championships.
