Ok, let me put it like this: if Ferrari wasnt never going to reach a podium without fantastic drive by Fernando, where do you think it was supposed to end up? Lets say, Hamilton, Räikkönen or some other was driving Alonos car in Turkey, where would they have ended? 4th?5th?6th? or even further behind? Was that really one of those "wow! nobody else could have done that" - races for you?
But yr, Hamilton, Raikkonen and some other driver weren't in Fernando's car yesterday. That's the point. He was.
In order to be called "fantastic" does a result have to be something that no one else could have achieved? Let's look at it this way. In China, Lewis had a brilliant result. Do you think that on a good day, with the same car and the same circumstances that Alonso could have achieved the same thing? Or Raikkonen? or Hakkinen? or Senna? I suspect that they all could have. Does this in any way diminish Hamiltons achievement? Not in my mind it doesn't.
I said that Fernando's result was "fantastic". Given it is Ferrari's first podium of the year, in a year where the car has underperformed expectations, and given that qualifying didn't point to any incipient changes, I don't think that's an outrageous statement.
I didn't call his drive "the drive of a lifetime", "the greatest drive ever", "beyond belief" or "historic". In the context, I did think it was fantastic, though. I of course respect your right to disagree.
