I dont buy this. Seb has a comfortable lead in the championship, he is the two time defending champion and he has the best car and is very likely to have the best car again next year. Fernando hasnt won a title in 5 years and is in a car that might qualify as far down as 6th or 7th. He has to be getting desperate to win one again soon and Ferrari doesnt seem to be consistently able to make a fast car every year so there is not guarantee he will challenge again next year. I think Seb will be a lot more relaxed than Fernando. If he loses he knows he will challenge again next year.

Hmm, maybe the photo was photoshopped and he actually has some rose tinted glasses because, quite frankly, the way I see it is Vettel sleeping peacefully and Alonso tumbling and turning all night.

Why would Vettel have a hard time sleeping at night? He's young, leading the championship confortably after slicing a 44 point deficit just a couple months ago, and is in the best car by a country mile.

Alonso, on the other hand, is an ageing, fading star, on a clearly inferior car (on a good day), backed by a trainwreck of a team that resorts to shady tactics (shafting his team mate in the process) to boost him up the grid...

race fan: Ageing? Everyone is 'ageing'. He's 31 btw, he may be racing for 5 or maybe even 10 more years. But fading? Not at all. He's at least on the same level as in 2005/2006. Give him Seb's car and he'll smash the field.
