I like Alonso and Seb. But no Ferrari, Fernando doesn't deserve the championship, he doesn't have the most points. Both Redbull and Ferrari had bad luck this year and the better TEAM won. Fernando is a better driver than Ferrari is as a Team for 2012. Maybe they will imporve for 2013.

Strange, I was a fan of Ferrari till 1995 until Schumi took over. They were never the competitive team since 1982-83. Fightig red cars (1988 red just loved it), also in 1990s the sound, fans, Dirvers like Alesi and laid back Gerhard... I dont know. Not they are in the similar position, Alonso is really fighting, doing his best. Just I dont like the Montezemolo claims, some team tricks, the spirit for me is gone. Ferrari was alvays political but alvays passioned. I would love to get there some exciting driver like Ham or Kobi, alvays attacking and holding the spirit, not just calculating.

Alonso had some impressive races this season, true enough. But Vettel had more of them. His races at Spa, Abu Dhabi, and Brazil were the stuff championships (and legends) are made of - fighting his way through the field to get enough points. He's done some races this year which stand comparison with the best in F1 history.

Forgive me for sounding a little unsurprised at that claim.

So Ferrari say Alonso, a Ferrari driver deserved to win? WOW what insight.

It could be said that Hamilton deserved to win & maybe he would have if not for breakdowns etc.
It could also be said that the only person who really deserved to win was Raikkonen because he was the only driver to finish every race.

Facts are that Vettel won & under a points system that Ferrari pushed for, Maybe things would have been different under the old points system but that's in the past.

Ferrari should stop whining about it and move forward its not as if they cant try again next year is it?

One final point. Did Ferrari really deserve to win?

Considering that the whole of the rear end of the car that finished the season was a direct copy of the Sauber it could be said that Ferrari really deserve to be excluded from the championship for not designing their own completely as required by the rules that banned customer cars.

For those who didn't know when at the start of the season the Ferrari was little more than a dog & being constantly beaten by Sauber, a customer Ferrari team, A deal was agreed between Ferrari & Sauber for Ferrari to duplicate large parts of the rear end of the Sauber "for development appraisal" in exchange for free engines. This was well known caused journalists to give the updated Ferrari that did start running well the nickname of the Ferrauber.

Ferrari's last championship drought was 21 years, and now they're over 20% of the way to beating it.

Ferrari make terrible underdogs, it's long past time to make some changes (ie. Stefano, Pat, the entire design team...).

The scuderia is no longer a team, they are a bunch of hypo- crytes in their pseudo racing racing world of team orders and other off-track strategies (broken transmission seal on Massas car)to create artificial racing advantages for their primadon na FA.
The crybaby FA only reached the points position that he did because of this artificial manipulation of rules and team orders to his wingman Felipe. The fact is, Massa was faster than Alonso in Brazil and Alonso would not have been on the podium if it werent for their stupid team orders. We all know Massa was told to get off the gas to benefit FA. Alonso will never be a 3x WDC with Ferrari or any other team, period!

@ Di Resta Fan - So one incident with Grosjean aside, Alonso would have won the championship? Rubbish. How about how he was handed the Valencia win after Vettel and Grosjean both retired with car problems? How about his own teammate out performing him in the latter part of the season? If you want to take unfortunate events out of the picture, Alonso wouldn't even have had a chance against Hamilton in the title hunt.
