Alonso is the 2005 Formula 1 World Champion!!!

With only 2 races to go, he has 117 championship points while his closest rival, Kimi Raikkonen, has 94. 23 points difference with only 20 left to race for.. All is lost for Kimi(damn), congrats Fernando, officially the youngest World Champion ever(24years 58days).

Juan Pablo Montoya won the race today ahead of McLaren-Mercedes teammate Kimi Raikkonen, the team achieving their first 1-2 finish in 5 years. Fernando Alonso of Renault came third, exactly the result he needed to clinch the title.

McLaren fans(like me) will be happy enough now that the Woking team leads the Constructors Championship by 2 points (McLaren-164, Renault-162).
All in all, great race for racing fans(maybe not for diehard McLaren fans), pretty eventful, especially the start where Antonio Pizzonia(standing in for Heidfeld) tangled with David Coulthard. Both were forced to retire, as well as Mark Webber who was unlucky to be close to the epicenter of the incident(his engine caught fire in the pits, scary but funny hehe). The much awaited rain did not come in time(it rained during the Podium ceremony).

I wish i can be on the Podium.. All the (wasted)champagne.. mmm
