Re: why is no-one criticising Massa

And this idea that he was never that good and was always an average driver, sorry I don't buy it. And if I were to buy it, I shudder to think what that reputation would do to Raikkonen by comparison. Given how both Massa and Raikkonen have fared against Alonso, there's possibly an argument to be ha...

Re: Alonso 2015

Maybe he was released from his current Ferrari contract to sign a new one? He keeps on stating that he wants what's best for both of them. Could he resign for less in order to help Ferrari improve by bringing in new talent? Just what I thought he keeps going on about I love Ferrari and will do the ...

How about Merc test driver next year, with a race seat 2016? Merc have Hamilton and no need for Alonso (or his hefty price-tag).

I watched a few old grand Prix in the lead up to Monza and noticed something very well intresting.

Wing angles are higher than they used too. Its a shame the wing angles on the rear wing are not as skinny as they used to be.

I think they run more wing now because they have DRS.

If Alonso is to blame for something, its for out-driving the car and placing it higher than it should belong, therefore he makes the Ferrari team think that their car is not as bad, and so the they don't work as hard as they should.

Re: Is Alonso to blame for Ferrari's poor cars?

A team designs a car how they feel is best to make it as fast as it can be within the rules. Then the drivers set it up to their liking. So no the car is not designed to suit a driver. You can't seriously think they decide to design as Alonso likes even though it's slower than how they can make it. ...
