F1 » Ferrari: One more engine failure would spell end of Alonso's bid


Stefano Domenicali has acknowledged that the greatest fear for Ferrari over the final three grands prix of F1 2010 is not how to outpace chief title rivals Red Bull Racing, but rather how to ensure Fernando Alonso does not require a ninth engine...

Obviously it's what's going to stop Alonso from taking his 3rd title because either an engine failure or turn it down and slow down so either way a alonso title looks unlikely which should comfort RBR and Mclaren, saying that 1 more DNF for any of the title challengers from now probably ends their challenge even Webber

But honestly, when was Alonso's last engine failure? It was months ago, wasn't it? As long as they have engines to switch around, like the other 4 do, he should be right.

Webber has a brand new engine, and he still didn't get pole. As long as the driver knows how to drive without destroying it, he should be fine.

I think this would be truly bad luck and undeserving of the driver to suffer a loss in this way for his bid for the title. FA has been the perfect driver ambasador to the sport, not caused any controversy, showing competitivenous and determination. We wish you good luck and holding thumbs for you mate! As much as the thought of your engine failing is a devastating one, imagine the glory at the end for the team if it does go the distance...It will be a true testimony to what SF has become in all its years of F1 racing! And that alone is a very exciting thought! Go Ferrari! go red Ferrari! Go FA...take it! Third on the grid is good!
