Re: Sebastian and Fernando - Have Ferrari gained or Lost?

I don't think Vettel is as good as Alonso, so they have lost something, but Alonso was burned so both did the right thing, the split was necessary. I'm pretty sure Alonso will be doing some serious epic races with their last 2 cars, not fighting for the titles though.
