Re: Ferrari to struggle with 2014 Formula?

What is a Kimi style car? Not the fastest, but making less mistakes like in '07... the year when Alonso clearly had the best car. He also did for most of '06, but one step at a time. No I mean what specific features of a car would make it a Kimi style car? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOhgI1hQA68...

Re: Vettel or Newey?

Wow, some Vettel fans are really paranoid. Coming from the same guy who went on the attack as soon as Raikkonen was announced at Ferrari and people started saying Alonso may actually face a challenge there now? Ok then. I'm sure Vettel's fans will console themselves with the fact he'll have 4 title...

Re: Rate Ferrari, what should Alonso do?

We don't know what Vettel could have done in those Ferraris. He may have done better than Alonso, he may have done worse. We simply do not know. Well given that Vettel only just won in a superior car, it's logical to think that Vettel wouldn't win in the inferior Ferrari. We also know that Vettel d...

Re: Rate Ferrari, what should Alonso do?

Re: Rate Ferrari, what should Alonso do?

Alonso was the best driver in those seasons. Any other driver wouldn't have won the WDC in the same car. No you think no other driver could have won the WDC in those Ferraris.

Re: Vettel or Newey?

But surely when you talk of the best car you should factor in reliability, nobody would question that at many races the McLaren was the fastest, but it was unreliable and unpredictable Unpredictable? That was for but a few races where they had to alter their car mid-season. Yes... even after factor...

that's a false assumption. You're basically saying that Alonso could not possibly have driven any better throughout the year. How do you know that? And even if that were so, which I doubt, what about Spa, when he got taken out by Grosjean's kamikaze move? You can't put that down to either Alonso or...

Re: Rate Ferrari, what should Alonso do?

Team principles voted Alonso the best driver in 10 and 12 (i.e they thought no other driver on the grid was better than him). The team principles know more about f1 than anyone on here.

As much as I like the guy that's a load of bs... So Massa has not been giving his 'best' and 'all out' attack since the start of the season?? Ferrari have shown that they will back their leading driver sooner than later, so I find it highly unlikely that Massa has not been giving it his best since ...
