I am not sure if Ferrari regarded Kimi's 2007 season as very good. The seed of doubt was sown back then. However, Ferrari and Kimi simply never clicked in the way both parties probably anticipated. Ferrari expected a new Schumacher while Kimi expected the best team and fastest car that he will be able to use successfully with his "turn up-drive-disappear" approach. In that sense, Alonso is a much better fit. However, the car is much worse than in the 2007-8.
If that was the case, then Ferrari are idiots. They knew what Kimi was like. He had been in F1 for 6 years at the time. Its not like he is magically going to change his entire personality just because he comes to Ferrari.
And a season where he won the drivers championship wasnt very good? Alrighty then.
He struggled a bit with adapting to the car and the Bridgestones at first but when he got it working he won 2 more races than his rivals. I also see people in here excusing Alonso for not wiping the floor with Hamilton in 2007 - and the reason given were the tires.
in fact......rookie was FA.....from Michelin to Bridgestone....
Funny how that works..
Yes, I have a hunch that Ferrari was actually better car in both 2007. and 2008., especially in 2008. That's probably why Alonso is now praised eventhough his results are actually worse than Kimi's back then. What is important to Ferrari is that he is placing that car where it should be.
What the heck do you mean, a better car? It won both championships in 07 and one in 08. Almost 2. Anything else you are trying to assume or conclude is pure fiction and speculation. I suspect you are trying to imply that Alonso would have flattened the field if only he had been in the car then. Pure fantasy and wishful thinking without any evidence to back it up with. In fact, the 07 McLaren is widely regarded as the best car that year. Pretty evenly matched on speed but edging ahead of the Ferrari due to its better reliability. And Alonso didnt set the world on fire with that car.
And if anyone starts complaining about trolling or something, my sole reason for responding to these posts are because of their obvious logical fallacies and flawed guesswork.
