F1 » Alonso: Losing hurts, but doesn't erase the positives

He might have been left with 'a bitter taste' in the mouth after missing out on a third F1 drivers' title in Abu Dhabi last weekend, but Fernando Alonso insists the end result does not detract from a 'wonderful' year with Ferrari

they may not have won it, but the championship but the team got results better than anyone in the second half of the season, it made me wonder if we would have had a different champion if ferrari were in the position mclaren were in after silverstone, or if the team had adrian newey's car

Ferrari just did not have that cutting edge this year, they need a consistent and solid package. Hope Alonso will be much stronger next year, for that elusive 3rd WDC.

Wise words Alonso, far enough from the brat image some stupid fans give you, all you have said is support to your team and we must pay attencion to you next season, because you'll be on top. I hope you get a better car.

Respect for one of the brilliant drivers ever.

I don't know about you guys, but I've had enough of this BS that's coming out of Ferrari as if it were told by Alonso or Massa.

They have this SOB there writing on behalf of both the drivers. Talk about a lack of confidence in your own drivers.

"Fell in love with Ferrari"

Yeah right, I would too if I were in Alonso's shoes and some guy on the pit wall just lost me the title.

What a load of c**p!

Next year is going to be a great year. Now that Alonso has been there for a year, he will have full input into next year's car. And we all know that he is one of the best drivers that can develop a car.

Agreed Calvin. The only evidence I can find for Alonso being a good development driver is what Alonso says about himself. When joining Mclaren I believe he claimed he could bring a second of performance to the car. What he didn't mention at the time was how much of that second was coming from the Ferrari manual.

AlanD-Ask the boys that worked with him at Minardi,they will tell you for a 20 year old he was light years ahead of anybody in the same age group when it came to testing and race set-up.
