Maybe in future, there could be an article about the 2007 Season if Alonso and Hamilton had had all their points removed and redestributed?
That would've given Heidfeld a victory in Canada, and Kovalainen would also have claimed a maiden victory in Fuji.

Alonso and Alpine's crusade against Masi and consistent Stewarding. It's a great side plot, I'm all for it and it's the only thing that really gave me any joy this race. Firmly disagree.
