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

If I was getting paid what FA was getting, I'd "fall in love with Ferrari" too. LOL. I think it's stupid how Ferrari Luca Colajanni as their press officer. He's clueless when the press ask him anything. When he finally come back with an answer it's total crap as if we didn't see everything that just happened on TV. He is a complete waste of space, and wastes our time writing this dribble.

@NomiShah:

Because he knows how to drive a F1 car like no other driver currently on the grid.

Oh, and don't say a thing about Kubica, that guy's not capable of hoding his nerves against someone like Alonso.

You are and have always been a cheat and a liar.
Not even Santander could buy you the title.
Ironiclly we in EU are soon bailing out Santander and therefore paying off your Ferrari season...

Lap 12
Webber pits.
AS: “Webber has stopped and Vettel is also losing ground on Hamilton. ” Fernando Alonso: “If you see that Felipe can overtake him in a lap call him in. ”
AS: “We are thinking about it, concentrate on Button. ”
Lap 14
Massa pits.
FA: “How did it work with Felipe?”
AS: “He came out behind Webber”
Lap 15
Ferrari tell Alonso to pit on lap 16.
AS: “OK, come in (to the pits) now.”
FA: “OK”
AS: “You will come out close to Webber. You are in front ”.
Lap 17
Alonso is 1.1s ahead of Webber and 1.5s behind Vitaly Petrov.
FA: “What's the situation?”
AS: “We have to overtake the Renault in front, he won 't stop any more. After that it's Rosberg.”
Lap 22
Alonso is 0.5s behind Petrov. None of the cars that were in front of him before he pitted have come in yet.

Alonso has nothing to prove, he's the best driver in the world. Everony inside the paddock who has a bit of knowledge knows that Alonso is in a league of his own. Give everyone the same car and equipment and 9 of the 10 times he will come out on top. 2010 was a fight between two geniuses Newey and Alonso, in the end Dyer lost it.

But don't worry the Ferrari-Alonso-Santander relation has just started to gel and once Ferrari give Alonso a good car, he will be near untouchable. He will make Schumi's domination look average.

However, what ever happens Alonso will go down in history as one of the greats, only time will tell if he can put himself as the greatest ever.

jense. "he's the best driver in the world. Everony inside the paddock who has a bit of knowledge knows that Alonso is in a league of his own."... thats a very authorative statement, and far from the truth. you have nothing to substantiate such a silly statement, and currently it has been proven that vettel "is the best in the world"! still, i presume that you are a fanboy, and will not accept criticism of your hero. sad!
