F1 » Alonso: Nothing compares to this


Fernando Alonso has said that, while he has had better races from a racing point of view, few came close to matching the emotion of Sunday's European Grand Prix.

@F1init

you must be a Seb or Lewis die hard fan to say what you said about Fernando, and you must have cried like a little girl when Seb and Lewis failed to finish. You must be a troll or something, and you don't understand what happened. You called that "luck", it's called being professional. The mistake of Mclaren in the pits is not bad luck for them or good luck for Fernando, it's their stup*d mistake. How many times did Mclaren mess the pitstop of Lewis, they just look like amateurs compared to Ferrari pit stop. F1 is not just about one man, it's about a team, Fernando did a good job from 11th, and that is skill contrary to what you are saying. Lewis started from third, with or without the pit stop error, he still has no chance for winning.

cont...

one other fact is, if Lewis didn't held up Grosjean, Seb will not have a 20 sec advantage since Lotus is looking pretty good in the race.

Alonso is certainly the best driver on the F1 grid today and his competitors recognize that. To say Alonso won the race because Seb and Romain retired is a little unfair because this is F1 and motorsports and luck plays a part. Similarly, Seb was very lucky in 2010 to have won the WDC because Ferrari messed up. Similarly, Seb was very lucky in 2011 to have had the fastest car. if you notice, Seb could not win races or be on the podium if the car wasn't the best on the grid..so from a skills perspective, he is not as good as Alonso.

I am not really a Red Bull fan, nor a Seb fan, but I was stunned at the race pace he had up until the alternator failure. Ferrari and others will continue to develop their cars, but I suspect all the manufacturers are concerned they may now be a big step behind Red Bull. Fernando will need to see continued improvements to his car if he is to hold off the Red Bull challenge in the second half of the year.
Fortunately for the fans, he is always up to the challenge.
