Of course, we all hate damage limitation and not being able to fight for a pole/win, but it's Formula 1, and it's like this.
A lot of championships have been built like that. Schumacher just said that Fernando only has to manage his advance, and he's right.
Wait & see
Personally I'm not worried about Hamilton contending for the WDC - He can't handle the pressure and will cumulatively choke in the next few races. He & Button can play the spoiler towards the end of the championships in the sense by putting their cars in front of Alonso when they are practically out of the champiionship and driving the fastest car without pressure of the WDC race.
It is imperative for Ferrari to keep improving the car. The progress in this area hasn't been sufficient in the last few months
Vettel on the other hand is the most dangerous one. He has the driving skills, car and most importantly the mental fortitude to overcome the gap . Alonso needs to watch out for him and Kimi. Alonso is a match for Vettel, however he needs a car that is at least close to the RedBull. That said Alonso is in a great position right now and I am quietly confident that he will do it this year
