Re: Will Alonso get fed up with the underperforming Mclaren?

point was, if Alonso gets rattled he can be his own worst enemy. And still tie with Hamilton on all the meaningful stats that year, plus nobody can't deny that the team was not on his side or even on neutral side "We are fighting Fernando not Kimi", if that translated on the team screwing him, I wi...

Re: Mclaren/Alonso/Button

They could've had Jenson running more conservative settings than Alonso so he was down on power but made it further in the race, while Alonso was running more aggresive settings and retired sooner.

Re: Will Alonso get fed up with the underperforming Mclaren?

No, he is going to be a good boy, and when the contracts ends, he will retire or continue depends on how good is the car. This is his last chance in a top team, he will want to be remebered as the guy who fought until the last minute and not the guy who quits when the things are not going well.

Trulli was in negotiations with Toyota behind his managers back, aka Flavio, Flavio took revenge for that. Trulli getting fired has anything to do with Alonso, if he wanted Trulli to not upset Alonso he could have "fixed" his car to be a couple of tenths slower, no need to fire him.
