    that might be the thing that Hamilton crash cost it. it shouldn't have because thats F1 & luck in sport, if he crashes on Alonso that sport if Alonso crashed on lewis that sport. if lewis crashed in Q3 every session does that mean that Alonso would get to go 1st every qualifying. but in video I found Hamilton pitted at 7:50 remaining & Alonso pitted at 7:29 remaining

    maybe he did but if Alonso was having a slow out lap but if lewis wanted a quicker out lap to get some temperature in the tyres. then he would have to overtake otherwise his fast lap would be comprised

    the seeds of doubt in Alonso's mind were sowed at Melbourne when Hamilton was on the pace straight away and Ron Dennis was not doing anything to hold back Lewis

    Spain was a particularly big moment in an unlike Alonso moment he decided to go for glory first corner and ran wide and never recovered his position

    Then Monaco , Hamilton thought he should have got pole but in the race he felt he had enough for 4 laps to close on Alonso but instead the team bought him in and he was going full attack mode. His face at the end of the race on the podium was telling having just come 2nd

    Then off course Indianapolis, Alonso felt he was quicker just after the pit stop but Hamilton defended robustly and incensed Alonso weaved towards the pit wall to suggest that the team pull Hamilton over which you were not allowed to do in those days

    Ta, ta you egotistical bore. F1 is more than any one driver but Fernando failed to grasp this based on everyone blowing smoke up his ass for years and years. If you weren't enjoying it mate you shouldn't have bothered in 2018, or 2017 come to that.

    I'm looking forward to seeing some young drivers giving it all regardless of where they might finish.

    Alonso’s Team has won Rolex 24 (on a Cadillac?). Good for them.

    Well it won’t perform without him apparently, he has just been announced as their ambassador and development driver.


    Go figure.

    Recent statements from Alonso do suggest that he wants to come back next year. I assume to McLaren.

    Well, he can stay there at Mclaren. Apparently he was looking for a return to Ferrari. Imagine how disastrous that would be.

    He wants to keep all options open, and have the best of both worlds if the McLaren becomes a decent car. It's what you'd do if you were him.

    I am hoping to be forgiven for tiny deviation from thread subject, but the same is valid for Hamilton. Now when red cars have some chance to win (occasionally), suddenly Hamilton would not mind to drive for them; for right price of course and if they are better than Mercedes. What happened to past statements that he never wanted to drive for Scuderia? Vettel has accepted the risk he was undertaking in 2015, whereas Hamilton has different feel for self-entitlement. Alonso had some bad years with red car, but I think he was part of the problem; rather his attitude (I am sorry but I do not want to offend his fans). I am not sure if Ferrari would give his old seat back, despite that he probably has still has some friends in Maranello.

    To be honest, Hamilton took similar risks in moving from McLaren to Mercedes, I suspect doing the same job for the red team might be more of a challenge, as they do strike me as rather political.

    sobriety Ferrari have always been political and everyone looks out for themselves and no one is prepared to go above the parapet to be shot at especially when Marchionne died last year

    Going to Ferrari mentally drains drivers not even Prost who went from Mclaren to escape Senna could sort them out

    This hasn’t always been the case though. Two British drivers come to mind; Mike Parks and Mike Hawthorn; both thrived at Ferrari and the Old Man (as well as Tiffosi) had a great deal of respect for them. Among other things because they moved to Italy to take full advantage of Ferrari factory and be in close contact with the team.
