If Alonso is the big boss at Ferrari nowadays, i think thats what the article implies anyway, isnt he ultimately responsible for the situation Ferrari is in for some time. He takes the credit for one meagre win a year but isnt responsible for the overall dissapointing season ahead once again ? Stefano is just Fernandos coffeboy afterall, why should he get the blame when its Alonso who always has the last word.

Probably reading too much into this, but it seems that Alonso is having to head off speculation concerning major changes at Ferrari. Yes, Massa may go, or not, but that really will not impact Ferrari's future that much with Alonso as the main man. But has there seriously been thoughts of having Flavio return and perhaps with Ferrari? Whether the rumours are real or not, and likely not, the media speculation has a life of its own and Alonso seems to now be the Ferrari spokesman. Not an enviable position but he is one of only a few who can likely manage it without it interfering with his driving. Another Ferrari victory or even a podium would be a great relief.

It is time for Massa to go, he cries when he feels another driver crowds him yet Massa is always crowding other drivers.

He has lost the edge needed at this level of motor sports.

As for Ferrari I see them as a rich team without clear direction. To many chiefs if you will. Ferrari lost their biggest advantage when Bridgestone pulled out and tires designed for their car only while all the other Bridgestone cars had a different tire then Ferrari.

The other thing that needs to change is Ferrari should not get any more money then any other team on the grid. Formula One would survive just fine without Ferrari involved in it.

Time for the sports richest team to stop being babied and them sink or swim on their own.

take no notice of Alonso i have it from a authentic Aussie source that Weber is about to sign for ferrari, so cant see how fa can be backing Massa just a smoke screen. And for the ferrari team principal i will wait for my Aussie source to inform me to what will be Domenicalis fate come the end of the current season.

usa1. what a comment! you seem to know little of the history of f1, and cannot see the relevance of ferrari to f1. the only team that has stuck to the series since inception. is it jealousy because the usa has failed miserably in making an impression? or is it that you cannot afford a ferrari?
and then to go on like a child,saying that massa is a crybaby? he was subjected to a number of unprovoked attacks from a particular driver last year, and he voiced his disgust. but crying? i certainly heard none of that.
to me , he sounds like more of a man than you do. but then if you dont like f1 and ferrari, why do you bother to watch? there is an OFF button on your tv.

to stafanos m...ther" Alonso is a great f1 driver, his responsibilty is to interact with the engineers when he drives the car to the limit if he feels things do not responding as anticipated or the car is responding in a negative way.if the engineers do not come with some solution "because their windtunell is faild to colorate with testing result" you can not blame Alonso.

richard did not massa assault a driver by striking him on the shoulder while that driver was being interviewed and causing that driver to respond in asking massa not to touch him. Massa seems to have lost it last season and instead of showing composure like the driver he attacked for the 2012 season he has gone down hill i can see him being replaced by next season.

Spongy, Maybe Richard was talking about Scott Speedless or Michael "It Was Ron Dennis' Fault" Andretti. (lol)

So Tony, tapping someone on the shoulder to gain their attention since they had previously rudely ignored your attempt to open dialogue with them is assault? Would driving into poor Massa for half the season be considered attempted murder then?
