Results say Schumacher is the greatest ever. Yet team principles and the public don't think so.
Results say Westlife are the greatest band since the Beatles, yet there is no-one who would agree with that.

Only one word for Alonso, GENIUS

In reply to the above comments.
Alonso has pretty much blitzed his team mates for a while now .With the notable exception of Hamilton ,any one who questions his ability is just being foolish. I do not think that Massa has become a bad driver,if the car was as good as ,say ,McClaren ,Red Bull or Lotus he would be a lot closer to Alonso.It is just that Alonso gets the most out of it .The other driver who has ( was? ) always ben able to do this is Raikonen.

Honestly, I think Alonso is nothing but a lucky "one hit wonder" who actually had 2 hits.

Where are the results? Wasn't Raikkonen fired from Ferrari cos they got such a "great driver" and truck loads of Santander cash?

By the way, who brought in the last Championship to Ferrari?

Let me ask again: WHERE ARE THE RESULTS?

I'm kinda new to F1.

I know Alonso is the best driver in F1 cos so I have been told.

Let me ask you, how many championships does he have with Ferrari?

Two? Three?

... none?

So, when Alonso made up 47 points in the last half of 2010 to lead the championship at the last race, this was a complete fluke???? 2010 was Alonso's championship! But it was thrown away by a bad strategy.

Ferrari have had bad cars since 2009 (before Alonso was there). Now let's see... where did Raikkonen finish in the championship in 2009? And where has Alonso finished in the 2 years he has been there?

Don't say Alonso is a bad driver, when he proves year in, year out in a bad car that he is one of the best, if not THE best.

Nice explanations, Wade. "if only, if only if if if". Right.

Only results matter in F1 and the truth of the matter is, Alonso hasn't won a damn thing since 2006.

Just have a look at the facts! The guy's swapped teams a billion times, but just like one of the previous poster put it, WHERE ARE THE RESULTS?

Based on your explanations it seems a guy who doesn't play guitar is most likely the best guitarist in the world.

Oh well... people are people. It's cool to believe in something that doesn't really exist.
