I wish this great win gives him confidence in the remaining races
BTW, Alonso didn't look that happy after winning the race, at least that was my impression at that moment. I wonder why.
Someone mentioned that on James Allen's blog, and he just said that Alonso was very happy.
Maybe he was a bit overwhelmed by the moment. Not many Ferrari drivers have won at Monza. Hell, its Massa's first time on the podium at Monza. That was probably why he was going crazy. Even Kimi struggled with it when he got his podiums in a Ferrari at Monza. Its his first year in a Ferrari, the pressure is very high. On top of that he has gone from a 41 point deficit to the leader to a 21 point deficit to the leader in the WDC.
Apart from the start, he didn't really put a foot wrong for the rest of the race.
I'm a Ferrari fan, not an Alonso fan, so it is still slightly wierd for me to be cheering him on. But today I was cheering him on like nobody's business. It was up there with Vettel winning at Monza in 2008 and Kimi getting the WDC in Brazil 2007.
Mandzipop is a very happy bunny.
