I hope the comment about consistency holds true this season and that in Ferrari's search for performance they don't lose the consistency they have. It's easy to see from the comments that all the drivers are still competing for the title as hard as they can. That is a benefit of the very open season we have enjoyed this year, most teams still feel they can win a race if not the championship.

He cannot possibly be fastest with the load of malarkey he's hauling around with him. Seriously, it's a bit of a bore. The great Fernando and his amazing melodramatic heroic storied results despite being saddled with a bad car. Give us a break. The numbers just don't add up, from qualifying to finishing, the team, the car, and Alonso are on song, including their trumped up self deprecating hype about being ad a disadvantage... poor babies. Just keep up the good work, and stop the whining already.

@Rob01

Give it a break....you put the same rubbish response on every thread about Alonso. Luck is an excuse used by the loser to blame their own poor performance.

I made a comment about Alonso overhyping their lack of performance earlier in the season and got attacked. I hope that,now it is more apparent.

I would say Vettel's analogy of the Ferrari is good. On pure pace, the Ferrari is definitely the 4th fastest car now. However, as Seb pointed out, it has tremendous consistency across all track and weather conditions while every other car has managed to struggle. Alonso's driving ability meant that at least some of his points lead is due to his ability alone. The car should not be underestimated though. It was a dog early on, but Fernando through talent and a little bit of fortune weathered the storm. Once the car was decent, Fernando pounced.
