Beginning of the end?

I know he has a performance contract, which might explain why the Red Bull rumours have started, but he shouldn't start slating the team. If he moves and Ferrari end up a faster car, he's going to feel stupid, and knowing the rule changes next year it could be the case.

And, also, the Red Bull rumours are rubbish. If Fernando is going to move teams, Lotus is my #1 bet. Why? It's his old team that gave him 2 titles and with the Kimi thing going and doubts over Romain, it looks like the best option if he and Ferrari end their relationship.

This guy has been a poor substitute for the great Schumacher . He was hired by Ferrari to do a similar job as what Schumi did in taking Ferrari to WDC and WCC and has not delivered and now instead of trying to knuckle down and help the team he is now looking to leave a sinking ship. This should not be the way Ferrari drivers should behave.

FA should look to Mercedes in how a lead driver should conduct oneself even though being in a team for just half a season.

Ivor, Prost never won a championship with Ferrari, he deserved to and perhaps would have without the suicidal Senna at Japan 1990.

Luca is right to warn Alonso about his conduct, one thing that's guaranteed not to make a car faster is whining to the media about it, so why do it?

On Saturday a certain driver was whining to the media about how it sucked not having a car that could race, a good example to Alonso that best practice is to keep your trap shut when it comes to moaning about your car.

Dont know exactly what was said (by Alonso) but overall it does not look good. This will only drive him further from Ferrari and seek Red Bull Racing. This much said, he ought to be grateful for what he has got. Not everyone is lucky to drive Ferrari F1 and even if he gets the RBR drive, he will still have to obey the boss (Horner).

"This is the moment to stay calm, avoid polemics and show humility and determination in making one's own contribution"

Alonso has been doing that for years. To no avail. At some point you have to stop doing all that and try to find other solutions.

Alonso has been keeping his head down, and motivating the team for years now - I think this year he gave Ferrari an ultimatum "build me a car competitive with the Red Bull or I'm out".

Unfortunately, they have let him down - and I don't blame him for venting some frustration.
