Best lap for alonso came on lap 22, just after he pitted for fresh tyres, at that stage of the race with around 40 laps of fuel it was reasonably competitive 1m28.8. Having your car at its fastest before the halfway point though was never going to do Alonso any favours, nc

In races where 3-5 stops are the norm, losing an average .5 seconds on every pit stop doesn't help either. How is a "drinks company" dominating the Ferrari crew on the pit stops?

What are Ferrari playing at?

You would expect a team with their expertise to be developing & moving forwards not backwards.

I don't know what has happened to Massa but he was being overtaken by everyone.

I think they are in big trouble.

Guess how much it will hurt Ferrari if the FIA bans blowing diffusers...

Against all propaganda, RedBulls are NOT gonna lose the most if the system is banned, instead, Ferrari, Rinoo and macca would. The ones which should gain the most had to be Mercedes, Williams and the rest of backmakers.

What have the FIA done to F1 racing? Would it have been better for Alonso to have gone out of qualifying after Q1 in 17th place with a full set of soft tyres, Heidfeid starts from the back of the grid and finishes 8th so could have Alonso have finished higher if he had started 17th with plenty of soft tyres? Where is honest racing gone? to many pit stops and not enough racing. Also as thr DRS system was not succesful in Barcelona, where was all the overtaking everyone was shouting about at the last GP, without this mickey mouse system there was very little oveertaking in Barcelona, all the changes to regulations relating to DRS, and high tyre wear from the Pirreli tyres only take away the racing, making it more like a video game!
