I won't argue with that, but how does that counter what I said? What I meant was that, what Alonso did to take the title to the wire was in fact, be there when the RBRs failed, he did miss some opportunities as in Melbourne, and Turkey, and in a way, Silverstone. My point is that, some people try to portray it as if Alonso outraced the RBRs even if he wasn't driving as fast a car, which isn't exactly the case, he outraced them in 3 tracks where the Ferrari was completely capable of doing it, in those 3 cases, he excelled at taking advantage of the situation, the rest was being opportunistic, nothing wrong with that, it's essential for a Champion to do that, but, there's a big difference in taking advantage of your opponent's troubles, and outracing them.
Of course, he kept putting the pressure on RBR by playing a few mind games, and keeping a great pokerface, of course, that's part of it too, all credit to him.
To begin with, he was the one being there. Logically, it should have been Webber, and machinery-wise, it could have also been Massa. Then, in Singapore, Vettel should have been faster, and he wasn't. And, may be, in Bahrein, if Red Bull had fueled the car with a less aggressive load, Vettel would not have been first during the race (and besides, nobody can tell for sure that if he wouldn't have had that problem, Alonso would not have overtaken him at the end of the race). And Alonso engine at Bahrein was also faulty.
And by your logic, everytime Red Bull did not take advantage of the situation (their superiority), they did not excel. And as Alonso's Abu Dhabi race shows, sometimes it is not the other guy winning, but you
losing, and it does not detract from the merit of the guy collecting the pieces, be him Alonso, Hamilton, Button or whoever. You know, to finish first, first you have to finish, and so on.
Besides, with a little change, your "what Alonso did to take the title to the wire was in fact, be there
when the RBRs failed," can be converted in "what Raikkonen did to take the title was in fact, be there
when McLaren failed,". And there is a certain thread where they would hang you out to dry if you ever dare to say something remotely similar.
