He should try working 49 weeks of the year Monday to Fri, 9-5pm (or equivalent) like 98% of us before complaining he doesn't get a big enough break.

instead of fighting it out on the tracks like every other f1 driver he wants an advantage first.
in the history of f1 i dont think theres ever been a champion asking for fewer races, what kind of a champion is he??

Why don't you guys try doing the amount of work these guys do. It's not just Alonso, I'm sure others would say the same. But it would probably be different if Vettel had said it...

driving an F1 car, work?

Sure they do have commitments outside of the race weekend and the travel around the globe might get a bit boring but I don't think you could describe driving a Formula 1 car as work. Most of us have to work to live, he's already earned enough from 'work' not to have to work for the rest of his life and will retire by 35-40 which most of us can only dream off doing.

This is just one of many reasons I don't like Alonso/Ferrari, they can't build a car over the break and develop it in the tests before racing starts like eberyone else so they moan and complain to get it changed so they have a chance, instead of just focusing at the job and improving. All Alonso/Ferrari do these days is bitch and moan.
