Whither Alonso

Any of the top 5 drivers is over-rated to someone, that's the nature of "the best".

There is no single 'best' most of the time, that's why they race. Drivers have skill sets, Massa is a great driver but cr*p in the rain. Alonso is arguably better than nearly everyone else at development feedback. Vettel is probably best all-round right now.

Anyone who thinks Alonso is not one of the to 5 needs a powder, the top three currently is harder to prove, even I won't admit he's #1, but he is my favorite and surely

Alonso is absolutely #1 as a favourite kicking target, that also tells you that he's in that top 3.

If he went there under the old regime of Todt, Brawn, Byrne etc. Ferrari would have another winning dynasty.
In any situation he is the one who would maximise the performance of his car more than any other driver.
He wouldnt do a Kimi and accept being put on the wrong tyres in Malaysia, he wouldnt do a Lewis and put it in the tyre wall in Monza and he certainly wouldnt do a Felipe and have instructions on where to brake!

At the moment nobody in F1 is better than Alonso !!! Ferrary knows this and that is why he is driving for them !!! Would like to know who could have score more points than him at Renault ! Surely not Button !!!!! People that criticise him are just green with envy !!!!!

"I still think Alonso is overrated! He was very mediocre this year. Isn't he suppose to be the best driver on the grid? Give me a break!!
-Let me remind you that FA won 2 WDC against the Kaiser Supremo :Schumi - the only one on the grid to do it- FA himself admits 2009Renault was probably the Worst car on the grid.
-Time to time. Lets see if Ferrari was wrong.Sorry Kimi is no longer there.

Whither Alonso, you think franco is the number 1 kicking target??? i got two words for ya... lewis hamilton!

i don't like franco as a person but he is one of the best drivers on the grid in my opinion.

i don't think his ferrari adventure is going to work. franco is a prima-donna, if he doesn't get top billing he causes friction within the team. massa is 'the man' at ferrari as far as i can see and i don't think that will go down too well with franco.

Ferrary adventure will work wonders with Alonso as a driver !!! Massa can't compare with FA ! How many times has Massa been world champion ??? 2Pac just in case you did not know Alonso is a double world champion !!!! Surely you dont get there just by being a prima dona !!! Dont be so jelous of his success and admit that he is the best !!! He beat Schummy 1 Remember ???
