I also have heard several reports coming from the UK with people hailing Alonso or voting him positively as well as other non-British drivers. However I don't think that is taking away any myth about the bias of the British racing fans.
I kinda feel that kind of stuff is more like a bit of self-bashing, like a scold towards the british drivers.
British are as biased as the Germans or the Spaniards towards their drivers. I don't see any difference at all. Kind of funny when they pretend they are not just to look more objetive but they are the same.
lol And about the medias itself, BBC among other british medias are among the most biased, double-faced and ethnocentrist ones in the world, specially involving political issues, but also sports. I know not all the people that write those articles are in the same boat tho, but overall most of them are.
Anyway as much as I'm a fan of Alonso I don't think he was the driver of the day at Turkey. That's like an insult towards him IMO. He was just back at what he once used to be. A guy that can achieve and perform solidly. I think other drivers were more special at Turkey, but well, this topic is not about those drivers.
