He knows how to mouth people off, but he also performs on track.
Rutherford Anyone who has got spare cash and need a world class driver need to speak to Alonso now not wait until the end tof the season like he said
I think the silly season has just really started
Mclaren Honda needs him more than he needs them and good luck to him.. it seems like Renault could come calling
TR I think the right hand side track is dirty and off the racing line which could cause Vettel problems at the start
Olivier Everyone has had trouble with the tyres because the track changed temperature but seeing Barcelona was one of the tracks Stroll tested and has knowledge it is disappointing he is only 18th
One wonders if Vandoorne was in the car just how much closer he might have been to Massa

Palmer i am beginning to feel his days are numbered as we almost got traditonal compliant again. As now for 3rd time austraila russia & spain "i was so quick yesterday & no idea where it went today"
Finally anyone else have that timing screen glitch at the end of Q2. As it had alonso in Q3 which must have been some error. But seriously i know you like him or loathe him but no can deny that is 1 of the laps of the season. How he got that mclaren/honda engine to 7th is nothing short of a miracle. Is 1st time since comeback ive seen anyone from honda be able to crack a smile
Palmers days were counted from day one, he was signed, because Renault couldn't find any other driver. He could have convinced the team to keep him through good performances, but he hasn't got the pace of Hulkenberg and can't extract the true performance out of the car.
Yes, some say I have a reputation of belittling him, but his driving has been s**t all season, and from day two in Australia he always had some excuse.
The last driver I've seen stay in F1 and use so many excuses is Maldonado, but he had freight ship loaded with money. Looking for excuses and blaming others isn't the way to stay in F1, only results matter (and money).
However, it must be said that Vandoorne also didn't feel that the pace of P3 was there in qualifying. Vandoorne also needs to step up his game. Alonso may still be one of the fastest drivers on the grid, but Vandoorne is being shown up to extent were it could impact his career negatively, possibly ending it prematurely.
But third minus second more than 72 seconds.... it is funny
But very early second pit due to Vandorne virtual safety car could spoil his tactic.
