Indeed, I was delighted to see that Alex won his race today.
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
So who is going to replace Lewis at Maclaren if he leaves. Rosberg, Di Resta,Hulkenberg,Perez or Vettel?
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14
Paul di Resta hopefully.

Paul is a really level headed young guy who's been in the motorsport industry since he was a kid. You don't see him causing unnecessary accidents - think where Force India were just a few years ago.
I think Paul would do well wherever he goes, like to see him at McLaren as a Brit.

It's an 'unfair sport' given that they do not all drive the same car ?

What do you suggest? They take turns and do it by time?
Given your criteria for "fair sport" then not many really are. I'm sure I saw Phil the Power Taylor driving a Volvo. Didn't do him any harm.

* that's about the best I can manage as far as Paul Di Resta goes... sorry.
Perez. Surely he must go to Maclaren, Ferrari or Mercedes next year.
All too often, the media and pundits go ape over an underdog when they get on the podium or win a race. Suddenly, this guy is the next best thing. It happened with Maldonado with his win at Spain. The only news he has been making since is his trips to the stewards. Admittedly, Perez did have a good race some time ago (I forget which one), but chances are, we'll hear nothing about him for the rest of the season.
Not to take anything away from Perez (he did take away points from Ferrari after all), but he got where he did today due to a one stop strategy, not because he's a better driver than those that he beat.
And well done Hamilton today. The title is between you an Alonso now. Focus, and make sure your head is in the right place. you have a big (but not impossible) task ahead of you.

Lewis will be at McLaren next year as it is his best chance of winning races/championships. The recent rumours about switching to Mercedes is probably more about leverage in negotiating contract terms than a serious consideration. Why would he switch to a team that is not fighting for championships and race wins on a regualar basis.
His only real options would have been Red Bull or Ferrari, but there is no seat at Red Bull for next year and there is no way Alonoso would allow Lewis to join him at his team. Plus the fact he is to good to be a number two driver at Ferrari if they decide to replace Massa.
There are a few young drivers who have the potential to win championships in the future like Perez for example. But it is to early for them to make the step up into a front running team. Give them another year or two to develop though and we could have some really good drivers making their way into top teams.
there is no way Alonoso would allow Lewis to join him at his team.
"Talking to reporters, Alonso said, “I am very happy with Felipe and I hope to be with him for many years. But if another driver comes there will be no problem, we would work the same way for the team. And if Hamilton comes, (it will be) the same.”
Many similar reports, too. They seem to be almost bromancy these days, Lewis and Fernando...but I agree that McLaren is best /most likely place for Lewis to be next season.
So, the McLaren is now quick at tracks that are high-speed point 'n' squirt (Monza); have long, high-speed corners (Spa); and are tight 'n' twisty (Hungaroring) - hmm, useful.
The body language at McLaren yesterday would suggest serious unrest, Ron looking particularly uneasy. Bye bye Lewis.

I've already mentioned it a few times, but for those that don't have/want Sky, there's no need to miss the races that will only be shown on Sky.
The simplest (Free) solution is to stream those races from RTLs (German commercial broadcaster with rights till at least 2015) web site.
There's adverts, and only German commentary, but you can use R5L for comms if necessary. The site isn't geo-blocked (or at least it wasn't this season) so no need for proxy servers etc, but if you're running ad blocking software you may need to disable it
