US Grand Prix was a race between team mates. It was McLaren vs McLaren and Ferrari vs Ferrari.
Alonso at one point was really pushing Hamilton but Hamilton held his cool and kept his position. Other than this the race was actually pretty boring. Nothing much happened other than lot of retirements.
After 7 races (out of 17) Hamilton leads Alonso by 10 points. It would be interesting to see how Alonso responds to the challenge.
At this point I don't think Raikonen or Massa will be able to make a bid for drivers championship.
