Unfortunate comments made by both parties before the summer break. The Mercedes factory folk will be bouncing with enthusiasm when they return to work. I wonder how the Ferrari factory folk will feel? I can't help but think Alonso is deliberately poisoning the relationship to guarantee an out from the team. But I do not think Seb will accept him on the Red Bull team and yes, his word will carry a great deal of weight.

Does anyone know what Alonso said? I've never been a large Alonso fan but I can say I've never seen him step out of line at Ferrari. He has always been super supportive of the team, especially when they have given him a subpar car. They owe him a lot more than him owing them.

To be honest, I don't blame Alonso for his comments. They are not getting anywhere with that car. It is now the 4th fastest car on the grid. The fact that it is driven to it's limits by the guy is the only reason it ends up somewhere near the front. The development of the car through the season so far seems to have remained static. The development engineers need to get their heads together and give him a decent car. That's just my opinion, be it considered a fair observation or not.

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

Would that be the driver who was bitterly complaining about the car/team/tyres and who is still 9 points behind the Ferrari lead driver?

Also, wasn't Schumacher hired by Mercedes to do a similar job as what Schumi did in taking Ferrari to WDC and WCC and did not deliver and instead of trying to knuckle down and help the team he left a sinking ship?

Time to replace Fernando...5 years without delivering good wins rather than whining about the car and giving beautiful excuses.
It is good that eventually Luca got sicked with his political conspiracy with Stefano.

People say that he's had enough time there without winning a championship (almost 4 years). Look back at Schumacher. He didn't win a championship at Ferrari until his 5th year with them.

So you never what could happen with Fernando and Ferrari in the future.

BTW, I thought his response was hilarious when they asked him what he wanted for his birthday.

Looka da Marshmallow likes to constantly remind us that no driver is bigger than Ferrari. Well maybe he should work towards improving the car, rather than slagging the drivers. Ferrari is only Fernando Alonso away from battling Williams and Toro Rosso for that last championship point.
