Each week, Luca di Montezemolo keeps saying what Ferrari needs to do in order to bring Alonso the championship, what he really needs is implementation rather than too much talking.
I hate to see Alonso loosing the title to Vettel by just a few points this year, same as what happened back in 2010. Alonso really needs a boost this time for him to have the motivation to fight on next year and whatever the duration on him as a Ferrari driver.

I read some comments from some fans saying Vettel had an advantage starting from the pit lane which allowed him to upgrade his car to his liking.
May be Ferarri should try that too and we will see if it really is an advantage.

You see there lies the problem,,,,they are only giving 120% ..Alonso included.
They need to be giving 150%...Then they'll be in the game....Geez you think they would have worked that one out

Well Webber missed his opportunity last race, he spun
the wrong guy, Ferrari has to have team meting with webber and explain to him better what to do.

Amazing how, even if Ferrari haters, people have such short memories or perhaps being new to F1 refuse to look at the history books. Ferrari is above all F1. Ferrari would rather go racing than build cars. Not the other way round.

Ferrari are always pushing, always striving always Ferrari. That Alonso is there is a credit to their drive. Alonso doesn't join a team to make up the numbers. If there was criticism to give Alonso is not one to stay quiet. Alonso is very happy at Ferrari and the only thing that makes Alonso happy is full commitment.

@TRUTHSEEKER
It is the case of un update :Alonso already gave 150% in the last race and in keeping of so doing he will achieve the most deserved F1 title ever eventually.If he will fail, well: the blame will be on the shoulders of those who gave 120% only . Or karma.

Actually, with Fiat's 98% stake ('08), and Montezemolo's replacement as Chairman of Fiat by Elkann ('10), Ferrari road car and the Scuderia are connected primarily by marketing and no longer operationally intertwined. Fiat provides access to tech resources, but the days of Ferrari road cars being stuff they did on the side to kill time between races are over. Monte is an important connector between the two sides, as Ferrari Chairman, and an important player in F1, but the Scuderia is no longer the center of Ferrari as it once was in Enzo's days.

Apart from the collision in Japan, Alonso has five consecutive podiums, including two second place finishes in the last two races. I'm not sure how anyone can be gullible enough to fall for Ferd's story about how woeful his car is.

I recall Hamilton insisting that there was no way on Earth he could possibly take pole in AbD - right before he did it.

I would not be even slightly surprised if Alonso takes a win in the next two races. His car is certainly capable of it.
