Looks like Ferrari will never have use for a prat like Hamilton anytime soon if those are the conditions, you never know perhaps the kid will grow up and in the process learn the value of keeping your word to your team and teammate. He may also manage to learn some race craft along the way. Stranger things have happened but don't expect to see Lewis (me me me) Hamilton at Ferrari any time soon.
Yes because Alonso didn't lose a similar lead to Kimi during the last few races. Considering his experience advantage over Hamilton that makes it even more of an embarrassment. Him all over the place in Canada, acting like an idiot in Indy when he couldn't pass Hamilton on track, crashing out in Fuji. Embarrassing that for a guy of his experience he couldn't take advantage of Hamilton's mistakes. Just imagine that, with all the mistakes Hamilton did, the best Alonso could do was to finish level with him (on points, but behind him in the WDC standing). Shockingly bad performance from a driver who was expected to thrash hamilton at the start of the season. Just goes to show Alonso is nothing without the best car, best tires, a subservient teammate, undisputed #1 status and a team willing to sabotage Fisi just so that Alonso can finish ahead of him. He is just a flash in a pan.
Look at where Alonso is now when he doesn't have a good car. Pathetic excuse of an driver.
