I think some people on this forum really need to figure out what 'fanboysim' means? I'd like to point out that critizing your favourite driver isn't fanboysim, quite the contrary. If you can't take this criticism when it is warranted, it is YOU who is the fanboy. And that is your problem. The plain fact is Alonso made a bad error, and destroyed his race with his shunt off-track. I guess nobody is balming him for Barrichello crashing him, just like nobody is blaming Button for Vettel mowing him off track. But Alonso made a lot of errors, both in the race and in the qualy. And so did his team, if that's any consolation?
I call most of the posts in the last 2 pages fanboyism and trolling.
He made a error during hard condidtions... Ok... But he wasn`t the only one.
Its funny that people take a crash in such conditions as a indicator for Alonsos bad performances over this season (This was the first time this season that he crashed himself out in the race!).
In germany, I would call something like this "Aktionismus".
His race was destroyed in lap 1, he had to take the risk of putting on inters after the crash - it didn`t pay out and he was on P20 after his 2nd pit stop.
He still managed to reach P8 before his race.
Just imagine the situation of Hamilton not being able to get his car back into the track during the 2nd rain period... You would need to lock all Lewis Hamilton threads in this forum because of the troll wars following this.
Nobody is mentioning here that the races of Hamilton, Webber, Kubica, Massa and Sutil weren`t ruined at Lap 1, eventhough all of them made a error in that last corner, whereas Alonso managed to get his braking point - just to be taken out by Rubens Barrichello.
Sometimes you have luck, sometimes you haven`t.
