It's just pure driving brilliance from Alonso. He just needs to qualify better, Vettel was just lucky.... again, if Kimi or Fernando was 2nd on the grid from the start, then it might not be that easy for the finger boy.

Vettel is a very good driver blighted by the fact the Adrian Newey design is all conquering. The Red Bull is so good that doubts remain about Vettel's actual ability. He won't mind as the history books will show a remarkable young German will have won 'x' amount of driver championships.
I'd love to see him in a Ferrari with Alonso or a Merc with Hamilton and see what minerals he really has.

Alonso clearly could of challenge for victory if he had better qualifying performance. I dont know if RB is just better setting there car up or Alonso just lacks the pace for qualifying form.

When he is in the top 3 he def. always challenges Vettel while others cannot.

It weird...if Vettel is P1 Alonso is either 3rd or further back playing catch up. If Alonso hails to p1 during quali Vettel is always 3 cars back from Alonso...

As much as I want Vettel to prove to the world he can challenge Alonso side by side then we can really put claims to who is the best driver. However they always seem to be on opposite sides during the race. Weird.

As an Alonso fan 1st. Vettel is awesome in quali but he doesnt impress me by his form with race pace because his car is Newey design which is the best of the best. Ferrari has a large budget but does not have Newey. Lets see how Vettel performs when Newey is no longer with him. G-luck to both men

This Fernando is lack of champion mentality, always excusing his achievement for not being a champion. From time to time he always highlights the car weakness that is totally different with Sebastian who is always so confident in every race.
