Certainly a plausible scenario, but if watching F1 has taught me anything, it is that things are wildly unpredictable over the short term. Alonso may find extra speed in the car and run away from the field. Or DNF the next three races and be out of the championship.
Right now, I'm betting Vettel gives him a hard hard run. He's got a much better car under him and if Alonso is a better driver, its not by much. He needs one good result with Alonso DNF'ing and he's right there. There are darn good reasons Vettel has won the championship the last two years. I think this race was probably the end of Hamilton's being in the running.
