I think Alonso did a great job to get 8th. However, why do these articles keep insisting that he had 2 extra stops? Unless he was on a 2 stop strategy (very unlikely, as the Ferrari hasn't been easy on the tires), the first stop included a tire change off of the mediums and took maybe an extra second or two to close the wing flap. The first stop was probably several laps before he wished to put, but otherwise wasn't that devastating. The second stop after making the choice to open the wing flap again (arguably not a smart choice), cost him enough to put him into 5th place at minimum and a loss of 6 points minimum.
