I am a huge Alonso fan, but to disregard the number of mistakes Alonso made from the first race to Belgium is to live in denial. So what if other drivers made mistakes? It doesn't give Alonso a pass on his mistakes.
Just because he was tremendous in the end of the season, doesn't mean you forget the beginning. Every race counts equally.
Forza Alonso! Better luck next year.
Agree 100%. People will go so far to bash a driver that they disregard all the good they did, and intensely magnify the bad. I think Fred and Lewis both did a great job this year all things considered. I must admit, Freds early season mistakes were very much unlike him, but then I dont think he's ever had as much pressure in his career before (Debut for Fezza, a strong red bull & mclaren and a car that was outdeveloped in the early part of the season).
