I dont doubt he prefers Raikkonen, but I doubt his contract specfically states Raikkonen more that it states he gets driver No 1 status.
Hamilton with his 4th title, it was a pretty underwhelming drive from him, but as Hamilton fan I'll take it.
Next year is going to be interesting though. Mercedes really didnt have the fastest race package this year, in quali for sure, but their race pace has definitely been under threat by Ferrari and Redbull, more concerning than that though is the fact that even when it is fast, it really really hates being in dirty air.
Ferrari have found awesome pace this year, Redbull actually look like in the past few races they are actually up there as the ones to beat (especially Max) and McLaren looking like that chasis is indeed as good as Alonso says it is, next year is going to be very interesting.
Did you miss the post-race photos that showed the half the bottom of his car missing from the initial crash? Because I don't think you can blame him for that incident, in fact it looked like he would at least pass Vettel there and then he had to start half a lap behind the rest of the field with a broken car and still managed to become WM.
(To be fair, with Vettel in 4th he could have stayed in bed that day.)
