@Mike

He doesn't have the car to do it - I think you meant to say "c'mon Ferrari". They're letting Alonso down, and only have themselves to blame.

Yes, Alonso lost points with 2 retirements, but that's racing I'm afraid. If Ferrari had a better machine there wouldn't be this panic because Alonso could realistically fight for points, not just limiting the damage.

Alonso has never been my favourite driver, but I have to say, this season he has proven himself a superlative leader and team motivator at Ferrarri.

He has definitely shown me what he is made of, and I like it! I might even root for him to win this weekend!

@DennisW I'm exactly the same mate. Never really been a fan of Alonso - always seemed so miserable. But he's totally won my respect this season...and I remember how moody Vettel was when he car wasnt the best - the bottom lip came straight out.

Fernando is the most complete driver on current grid. He is a true champion, and he deserves the title more than anyone else! From the bottom of my heart I wish you luck Fernando!

Not a great fan of Alonso the person but as a driver I think he is the best in F1 at the moment and would not lose too much sleep if by some miracle he was able to overhaul Vettel.
