Fry needs to realize that you can't actually push the Ferrari as fast as Vettel is going, it's physically impossible. The Ferrari is as slow as the thinking behind it. You need to DESIGN a faster car.

"The solution to Ferrari's woes is blindingly simple. Come on boys, you must see it. You need to go out and buy yourself an Adrian!"

They'd be better off buying themselves a Sebastian. (Or a Lewis .. but THAT won't work) While an excellent overall driver, Alonso has never been quick over one lap. Even in the years he won the WDC he only manged six poles out of eighteen races each year. LH beat him 5 poles to 2 in 2007.

In all likelyhood he'll be starting fourth or fifth on Sunday. Not because his car is terrible, but because he's simply not as quick over one lap as drivers like Seb, Lewis, or Mark.

PDM, I'm sure you included a well-thought out explanation of why you think that, but the Internet ate it.

Alonso is a notoriously slow qualifier. A great driver, but a poor qualifier. That's a simple historical fact.

Erm...let me read that again. Alonso is a "notoriously slow" qualifier...a "poor" qualifier. Can we please stop exaggerating?? If that is the case, what does it make of ALL the drivers that line up behind him from 6th to 24th? They must drive F1 cars slower than turtles move!
