More accolades for Alonso's first half of 2012. Croft Praise For Alonso.
"But if Alonso keeps up his consistency both in terms of picking up the points and driving pretty flawlessly during the course of the race it's going to be pretty difficult for somebody to overtake him."
"His car was three seconds off the pace in pre-season testing. Ferrari didn't even allow reporters to talk to their drivers because their drivers had nothing positive to say. But he turned up in Spain saying, right, we know we're not the best, we just have to pick up whatever points we can and get to the test, develop the car, sort it out in the test and then go for podiums and wins. He'd thought it through already."
"...he thinks the long game all the time. After Mark Webber beat him at Silverstone was he upset, was he unhappy, was he down heartened? Maybe a little bit inside but outwardly he's saying 'no, I've given seven points away to my nearest rival - only seven points..."
"I'll prepare myself for a massive fall here, I think we'll get it wrapped up (The Championship) before Austin - so before the penultimate race. I could be wrong but I've just got a feeling that Alonso's going to win it and I've had that feeling since Malaysia to be honest."
