Add Alonso for 2007?[edit]

Would it be interesting to add Fernando Alonso to the runner-up spot for the 2007 season? I know that he was in fact classified 3rd, but he did score as many points as 2nd-placed man Hamilton, and could thus be interpreted by readers to have finished 2nd ex aequo. Plus, adding Alonso, would show the closeness of the season better. Lustigson (talk) 08:57, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

I wouldn't add his name to the list (because he wasn't the runnerup), but it might be worth adding a footnote saying that Alonso and Hamilton scored the same number of points but that Hamilton claimed the runnerup position due to a better finishing record. If so, then the same should be done for 1982, when Watson (3rd) scored the same number of points as Pironi (2nd). DH85868993 (talk) 09:28, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
Good point about 1982. Lustigson (talk) 10:54, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
