I'd wager that many here praising Alonso for this season would find it difficult to similarly praise Vettel for his season last year. No? or Yes? This is for arguments sake putting the fanboyish blind bias aside. I'm sure many will say that Vettel's car was so quick last year that there was nothing special about what he did.
Of course they find it difficult to similarly praise Vettel because its comparing apples and oranges, a dominant car to one that's never been quickest in a single race this season, so trying and draw equivalency between them would be an honest objective view. I can see what your thinking. Alonso getting more praise than driver X is not fair and is automatically the result of bias and fanboyism. It doesn't work like that though because praise is based on merit and achievement not political correctness. Nobody would try to equate Mansell's 92 season with Schumachers in 2000, or Senna in 90, or Prosts 86, and thats simply because his season was not as impressive because of the car advantage.
