It looked like Mercedes might run away with the season but Audi is now 5 points behind Mercedes thanks to its strong showing and in a position to repeat as champion if it continues to come on strong toward the end. BMW looks like they will need a miracle or the type of performance that Audi was just able to put up. Things just got very interesting.
