Alonso won at Monza, Button is second and Massa third. If only Massa stops trying to overtake Alonso, he might win the title.

Should be said that Alonso and Ferrari got the grand slam. That means: started from pole. lead every lap, had the fasted lap of the race, and of course won! That's as good as it gets.

Russia is making a renewed bid to bring Formula One racing to Sochi with F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone agreeing terms for a Grand Prix to be held in 2014, the same year the Black Sea resort hosts the Winter Olympics.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, whose backing was crucial in Sochi winning the right to host the Games, is due in the city on Thursday to sign an agreement for work to begin on the construction of a new 200 million dollar circuit.

Ecclestone told local media that after several rounds of negotiations with the Russian authorities the conditions for the contract have been agreed.

"The document has still not been signed but when the appropriate person from Russia signs it, I will sign it the next day," Ecclestone told Kommersant daily newspaper.

He said that the annual fee Russia would pay for hosting a Grand Prix would be comparable with that of around 40 million dollars paid by new Grand Prix hosts Singapore and Abu Dhabi.

However, racing fans should not hurry to book their tickets after Ecclestone pronounced similar sentiments in 2002 for a proposed Grand Prix in Moscow.

On March 22 that year, the Russian capital's ex-mayor Yury Luzhkov and the F1 boss were set to strike a deal while dozens of journalists came to Moscow's City Hall ready to immortalize the historic moment.

But the deal collapsed at the last minute after the two sides failed to agree financial terms.

"They want to sweep all the profits leaving us to pay all the expenses and stay happy with the smell of the petrol smog," said Luzhkov, who has since been sacked by President Dmitry Medvedev.

The project of showcasing Formula One at a completely new circuit in Sochi's Olympic Park has also raised questions over how Russia can jump from hosting virtually no races of importance to the biggest of them all.

"Staging the Formula One event in Russia in the existing conditions is a pure utopia," Russia's Formula Two pilot Ivan Samarin commented.

"We should build several circuits for staging the national racing series before starting the construction of a Formula One racing course."

Samarin added that Russia should also change its mentality and stop expecting an immediate profit from the investments into the project.

"The construction of the racing circuit is an investment into the future," he said. "The staging of a Formula One race raises the prestige of the entire country and attracts crowds of tourists, who are ready to pay for the show."

"But the investors should be ready to wait years before their investments start bringing profit."

Russia currently has one F1 driver, Vitaly Petrov, who became the country's first ever pilot in the class by being chosen to drive for Renault in the 2010 season.

Great photo. The evolution of cars is really something. For me the '60 - early '70's cars will always be "Indy" cars. But they all were great.

Those are the Korea race results. On the overall standing, Alonso is also first.

Yes, so has Massa for Alonso but I have my doubts. Massa wants to win in Brazil.
