If I was Alonso id be worried about the Redbull and Mclaren to.
Vettel and button were all over him.
They defo had faster cars. To me the Ferrari just looked quick enough where it counted to hold them back, even if over a lap it wasnt as good.
I dont think FA did anything super special today, but as usual he makes the absolute most of what he's given.

I think he's hit his prime to be honest, he's making many very good drivers look ordinary.

Can somebody expalin to me how a pucture can casue a diff to fail, while your 'number two' driver runs rings around you! Well done Mr Witmarsh good choice in your 5 mil a year 'crash kid'. Fernando could have brought all the credit to your team but you kept 'him' on. Great victory to the Fernando supporters. Great stuff, maybe he can sit out the last race and still win the WDC from the Garage huh?

Alonso been driving for ferrari the biggest team in f1, and no WDC but gets paid 30 million a year a freh faced boy soon to be huge in the music scene is on 15 million a year and delivers Mclaren the WDC Ferrari has been mugged.

cant wait to see wonderkid kick butt soon

The rivals were quicker, Shumi posted fastest lap, Wonder boy was finshed quicker than evey body (nothing unusual). But you were the winner! Great stuff, long live the wonder kid (as in I wonder why he finished so soon). Just a thought, winners never quit quitters never win, huh. But he must have enjoyed watching his number two driver- team mate doing sooo well for a change -albiet from the garage. Not wile hes lapping him.

Alonso is getting the best out of this car like only he could do. Three wins in one of the most closest f1 seasons, i have not seen Alonso as good as this since he left Renault and went to Mclaren if it was not for that boy at Mclaren Alonso could have been a 3 time world champion by now. Hope he can do it this year as he has a better car than that kid has now.

GO GO Alonso

Rivals were quicker in the race at virious stages of the race,
alonso end of first stint was fastest
this it was kimi at start of second stint.
. .
. .
any ways yes and true it wasnt any thing special from my man Alonso,he won i belive coz he was in the lead in the last stint.
Vettel couldnt over take him in dsr cuz SV top speed was 312
an alonso was hovvering 308-309 button had a good chance as his top speed was 320 or so in dsr,
how ever if u look at the last stint alonso timed most of his over laping was done in dsr zone. well done
cna some one confirm how many times he has finished 2nd this year?

I'm not trying to take anything away from Alonso but I think if qualifying were dry the Button would have started further up the grid and would have won but that's all "if's" & "but's" and Alonso, Button & Vettel were class today and Alonso is going to be very difficult to beat for this championship he fully deserved the win today and he is outshining the rest of the field this season.
