F1 » Alonso: That was probably the hardest race of my life!

Double F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso has driven some tough races during his time in the top flight - but a battle against a broken gearbox for the duration of the 2010 Malaysian Grand Prix, the Ferrari star conceded, was arguably the hardest of them all

Whither Alonso

First off, he is indeed a bothersome personality.

However, ANYone who today thinks Alonso lacks any driving skills today after THAT race yesterday is in serious denial. That effort was rather good. Yes, some other greats (a very few) would have done the same, but he proved what a driver and competitor he is for everyone, detractors alike at Malaysia 2010.

Goes to show how great a driver this two-times World Drivers' Champion is.
Rather than wasting a whole year with Ron Dennis in 2007 and another two years with Renault, Ferrari should have opted for him in 2007. I'm sure that they would have been in a far better shape than they have been these last three years.

We could hear the engine getting ragged, couldn't he? Did Ferrari telling him to go like mad and get past Button at all costs? FA was easily going to be 9th and did not need to get into the antics that stressed the engine to destruction. If it were the championship decider yes, but to sacrifice points this way was a tad irresponsible. Can you imagine the outcry if that had been Lewis?

No question about the raw ability FA displayed though. He's not my favorite but he can drive! He took a sick car and threatened the current WDC, making him look like a sheep about to be slaughtered.

Alonso remains the only real threat to Lewis Hamilton when it comes right down to sheer driving skill.

I think he could have bring it home like Vettel did in Bahrain. He would still get a point or two. Despite that he is a briliant driver, he and Lewis.

I've been saying since I first heard Kimi was signed by Ferrari that Todt dropped a bollock. Should have been Alonso all the way.
Sunday just showed the class of the man. Even with a crippled car, you could see Massa was holding him up early on...

Go on Luca, sack Massa, waste of a Ferrari seat
