After setting the pace during FP1 at the Nürburgring and lapping a close second-quickest in FP2, Ferrari star Fernando Alonso is up for the challenge and adamant that Silverstone was no regulations-aided one-hit wonder

Good spirit makes good races. Ferrari must be happy enough with him, he's one of the best drivers at the circuits, and outside them, he unites his team just the results should be positive or not.

Go for it, Fernando!!!

This guy is starting to show his class! In his 18 months at Ferrari he has turned them around and back into a race winning team. Felipe has not been able to compete with him as the statistics show, so Ferraris foresight in backing him as their best chance of wins now looks like the wise move. While McLaren are going backwards with their development with Hammy and Butt, Ferrari look stronger by the race!!! Oh how Ron Dennis must be kicking himself now when he wonders how successful McLaren might have been these last 4 years if he had kept Alonso in his team and sent Hammy out on loan to Wallys or Force India or anywhere!!!! #:)

@Racehound
I completely agree with you.Dennis himself said last year that Whitmarsh is better than him managing drivers.And Whitmarsh said many times that Alonso is the best driver on the grid and losing him was the biggest mistake made by McLaren in their history.
