Love him or hate him, Ferrari have the best pilot for the current regulations, he gives his team hope at every event and his position at the top of the standings is deserved. Great drive by 'both' drivers, great team work in the pits and a top effort from the whole team.

Can anyone seriously say that Alonso is not the best driver in F1?
Considering the equipment he has had this season, he has performed miracles.

Of all the drivers out there, the one they don't want to see in a competitive car, is Fernando

Alonso currently has a car that is frequently the fastest in race trim, so does well in races.

This is not due to any great superiority on his part at all, but plays right into the poetic nonsense of inadequate little fans who revel in always trying to paint him as the great hero capable of achieving the impiossible... The little guy who came from nowhere and beat all the really big guys against all the odds... it is the archetypal Little Man fantasy of the small inadequate man.
