F1 » Alonso insists Ferrari position was priority


Yes, the rumours of Alonso's dissatisfaction are likely well founded but where could he go? McLaren? Not particularly strong right now and seem to be chugging along like Ferrari, though there is a Honda on the way. Williams? Stronger this year but unlikely to be able to mount a consistent yearly challenge or develop the car through the season. Red Bull? Only if Seb leaves, which is a possibility. Mercedes? Likely to be the strongest team for the next few years but only if Nico leaves. Which could happen if he finds himself losing a few more battles to Hamilton. I would like to see Lewis-Fernando Part Two.

F1 » Hamilton takes title lead after easy Mercedes one-two


Enormous gap to second but yesterday I speculated that Seb might crack the top five with a great drive, and he did, setting fastest lap as well. Let's hope that the unique characteristics of Monaco will nullify some of the Mercedes advantage and bring the Red Bull and Williams into play. Too much to hope for to expect Ferrari to be in the mix, I think.

F1 » Alonso insists Ferrari position was priority


Much ado about nothing. The switch to a three stop strategy was impulsive and understandable, though he immediately came out in traffic and lost some time. Kimi had two laps to change strategy and remain ahead but the two stop looked promising. It worked out slightly better for Alonso but really, both men's talents are being wasted for the moment in a car that is very ordinary.

Great drivers can drive even an ordinary car. Vettel went from 15th to 4th in a car that he hardly drove all weekend.
True, and I commented positively on Seb's talent in the thread that focused on his drive. This thread does not concern Seb, it concerns the two Ferrari drivers. I restricted my comment to the topic. Both men have won this race twice and I suspect will likely win again. I am not sure why you interjected Vettel into the conversation but I suspect both Kimi and Fernando would switch cars with Seb in a moment while Vette
