You can do better than that... I think. They underperformed not because they were beaten but because they, Massa and Webber, were embarassingly beatem by their teamates and also relative to their past performances. No need to pull the numbers here, they are well known. They underperformed because they, and their teams, admitted so. And if you think Hamilton performed anywhere near his full capabilities, you are in for a big surprise when he rebounds.
Nobody, at least not me, is saying Alonso didn't do a better job, indeed a good job. The problem is the degree to which people are elevating his performance this year. Nothing circular about the argument.
Massa never finished better than 5th the entire season.
Alonso had 10 podiums.
Unless you want to admit that Massa is the worst driver you've ever witnessed, you have to give Alonso some proper credit.
I'm sure you'll come up with some excuse to worm your way out of giving him said credit, but you know deep-down he did a fantastic job and thats enough for me. Seriously, you can spend hours downplaying it, but you KNOW it. Alonso was great. Its gotta be hard for you, I'm sure. The guy is an F1 guru and you just hate it so much. I love it. I seriously do. I dont even like Alonso that much as a person, but I get so much enjoyment out of knowing how much you hate him.
You problably hate just seeing those letters in that order dont you?
You probably just smashed the cup you were holding.
2x World Champion
He's destroyed Massa.
Has a better moustache than you.
Can you read at all ?
You guys talk a lot about hate but look at your post. It's hatefull, maniacal even and all this because I said that Alonso did a good job, not a magnificent one.
By reading your posts on this thread, and I'm not trying to offend you, I'm being honest here, I really think you are loosing it. Now I even regret my post responding to your request for me to go away, I apologize for that.
