Fernando may have had better times than today , for sure.
As himself declared there are still three races to go and two runner-up titles to seal, so let this race in behind and ramming speed ahead !

surprising how Massa is beating Alonso recently.I thought Alonso was going to do a Schummacer when he joined ferrari,but he has been most disappointing. Maybe he's not as good as what people think. Its been many years since he last won a title and i dont think he'll ever win one again. Put Vettel in the Ferrari and you'll get the Championships

the Ferrari car is still main problem. SV had a pit stop in the first lab as well but he over took many cars but FA could not do the same thing.

I totally agree with you about FA being a let down for Ferrari, 2016 They will win title again as Vettel will be driving for them by then....and people don't say the Ferrari is slow because it isn't..

Totally agree, the Ferrari is a pretty good car, but since Red Bull knocked him back FA has given up, also think he is unhappy about having Kimi as a team mate next year. Maybe he's scared............

He gave up after the first lap yesterday, unlike Vettel in Brazil last year, who fought to the end the win the championship..

Am amazed some say Alonso gave up, and the Ferrari is a good car . The Bull is still head and shoulders above the Ferrari . Which is the reason why Vettel could do what Alonso could not do. When Vettel puts in 110% commitment he gets 110% back ,by comparison Alonso , ALWAYS gets less out of the Ferrari than he puts in.

It's not fair to compare Vettel and Alonso on Sunday. Yes Vettel pitted on lap one and came out 20th and did really well to come through the traffic as fast as he did. But remember Alonso's stop was for a new nose so he came out further back from the field than Vettel. A 15 second stop compared to a 3 second stop. He also had steering issues but I would agree that this season Alonso has not been as good as last season where he was superb, one of the best seasons I've ever seen a driver have.
