Cry, cry, cry Fernado....cry, cry, cry!

You always were an average driver that you now need Massa to slow down to keep you on the racing line tomorrow so you wouldn't have to start on the dirty side.

How did Felipe lose 3 tenths in 1 sector to Alonso while it was obvious he was quicker. Again Ferrari the 1 driver team...

FA now says he is racing Newey and Vettel. A second time he has trashed the team this weekend. It is going to really grab him by the short hairs when Vettel wins three WDC's in a row. FA said that Ferrari was all talk during the week, maybe Alonso takes over on the weekends.

It must be though for Fernando to constantly be told he is the best only to get his tail whipped by the youngest ever champion 3 years running.

Remember, it may be a very fast car, but Sebastian and Mark have to deliver fast, consistant laps, week in, week out.

Newry may be a great designer, but he is not the one driving and delivering the end results.

You don't tip your cook, you tip your waitress. The quality is expected, the service is what is always questionable...

Alonzo I don't see how been motivated gives you an advantage.
If Ferrari finds some more 'Getty-up' for the car,
methinks then you may have an advantage, how much,
hard to say...

Earlier in the year Vettel's struggled when the cars were more evenly matched and was found wanting. Like all drivers he throws his toys out of the pram too and was heard on the radio telling the pitwall to "do something about it" and get him past an opponent!
Newy has ramped up the car with his genius and hey presto the red bulls have shown in the last couple of races some real dominance. He also 'inherited' a win from Lewis as let's not forget!
His championships are there for all to read but so is the dominant car designer and without him, Vettel would be an also ran. Don't get me wrong, he would win races but not championships!
He is a lucky boy!

@zelda

It must be awesome to behold your omnipotence. Since your self righteousness can only mean that you truly have divine guidance, would you mind telling us more secrets of the cosmos?

Or is your view limited by your fanboism?

Guess you missed the time Vettel was leading the WDC when the cars were against his favour 4 races in. Alonso wasn't even an actual threat unless he got gifted places or wins on a plate by pure luck.

Face it Alonso has been more lucky than talented this year and that's a FACT!

Alonso is right, I mean a driver needs the car underneath him in order to deliver the results, this year more than ever qualifying up front is paramount.

Ferrari have clearly not developed the car as good as red bull have and it's showing, I think Ferrari have thrown the title away as they simply do not keep apace with red bull & Mclaren, I'm a Ferrrari fan so it's not good.

Unless Ferrari can deliver a big upgrade which gives Alonso a 2-3 tenths per lap advantage then vettel will be champion.

As much as I am a loyal and passionate Ferrari fan. I can't help but feel that the team needs restructuring. The first to be changed should be domenicali. He cost Alonso the world title in 2010 by pitting him at the wrong time, and then to come and be held up by petrov for the remainder of the race. When all Alonso had to do is finish in the top 5 to clinch the championship,
Ferrari make a lot of wrong decisions. And those decisions also lie with car development. I Think blaming the wind tunnel is not good enough. As Ferrari is the biggest team in formula one. So should have the know how and personnel to be able to get them out of trouble,
There is no question is talented. But he has been very fortunate to be in the best car for the last 3 years too,
It took Michael Schumacher 5 years to clinch his first title for Ferrari. Alonso could of had it a lot sooner if it wasn't for other people doing their jobs properly,
A major revamp is now needed to bring them back to the front.
