We had one zero in Spa and one zero in Suzuka, but these were completely out of our control.

After a week of reflecting still not able to accept you made a mistake uh? :lol:

That's just awesome. First a kung-fu kick, then running sprint with a fan, 2nd kung-fu and then bicycle...like he was on something.

Shows what a great, balanced person he is. Here the mountain-sea spirit (Mushashi), there some light-hearted fun, then some concern for the fans (the guys who ran the fastest still got an autograph by Fernando!), then professionalism again in checking the track by bike.

Source? Was this a translation? Because Adam Cooper puts it differently:

“I think we have been pushing from the first test in the winter, so nothing has changed in the last five races,” he said in Korea today. “We just need to keep doing the things we’ve been doing so far. I think it has nearly been a perfect championship for us at the moment, with good strategies, good starts, good approach to the races.

“Everything we had in our hands on Sunday, we maximised the points. We had one zero in Spa and one zero in Suzuka, but things completely outside of our team, so apart from that we don’t need to change too many things.

“We were fighting in all the races the maximum we can, approaching the races to maximise the points we have available. Sometimes we were on the podium, sometimes we were fourth, sometimes we were fifth and this will not change now. I don’t think we can over-drive or over-do what is available for us.”

“All these last four races, in which we lost a lot points, I think are just some unlucky situations. Things normally change, they go up and down. Hopefully our bad run will finish and we will start a run of good runs until the end.”
He added that there wasn’t much new on the F2012 for this weekend.
“Not many updates, obviously it has been only four days from Suzuka to here so we will try to set up the car as best we can for this race, this layout. But, I remain reasonably confident that we will be competitive.

“We’ve been more or less competitive in the last eight, 10 races – maybe not the fastest but always in position to fight for podiums etcetera. I think here will be no different.”


In this version he is clearly talking about how the team as a whole has made the best out of a difficult season. The Suzuka incident is arguably outside the team's control and was unlucky however you slice it. His saying so makes no statement about how he abortions the blame after reflection. It seems to me that therefore your annoyance at the quote is exaggerated.

He will be annoyed unless Alonso decides to admit he is to blame for all that is wrong in F1 and retires. In fact I don't think he wants this either, who would he bash instead?

Semantics. "Completely out of control" is, on deeper look, wrong for 99.9 of any situation, strictly speaking. So yeah, IF he used those exact words you got a 'point'. Enjoy it! :D

in the korean gp press conf today , alonso was asked this question by some fool posing as journalist ... should kimi apologize for the contact at suzuka???

alonso put him into his place by describing it as a midfield tussle and racing incident. and i think we should put an end to this bickering.

That was Carlos Miquel. He's one of the three _______ (<-------insert your favourite word there) who have been promoting the idiotic conspiracy theory the last couple of days. Whenever you see the name "Miquel", just stop reading and ignore him :)

Miquel also wrote a blog where he echoed some things printed in As and repeated all the part about Räikkönen going on purpose against Alonso because of the Ferrari thingy and how Räikkönen detests Alonso and bla, bla, bla.
I read it yesterday, because one of the Spanish journalists who have been publicly mocking the conspiracy guys linked it in twitter.
I'm not on a computer at the moment and can't give you the link, but I suppose googling Miquel and blog should give it :)

Hopefully no incidents this time so everything Fernando wins/loses is just because of him, no endless post-race analysis.

If Fernando loses this year's WDC and Sebastian signs a contract with Ferrari in 2 years time... even Fernando will be saying "wait a second!".

Hopefully Banco Santander figures out what the freak Ferrari are really trying to do (keep Fernando kinda sorta happy for two years by giving him a 3rd row car) before the Vunderkid comes onboard.

THEN and only THEN will Ferrari kick it on overdrive. Gumbah style.

Brillant job, I was worried after Q1, very close to pole, and almost got P3 from Hamilton. On the bad side, Kimi is behind on the clean side.

Fernando is a BEAST! He suffered in FP3 and Q1 and when it mattered he squeezed the most of the car or even more. This guy is brilliant, absolutely amazing.

What's the difference between Sebastian' and Fernando's life?
Seb's biggest problem is missing the pole and getting "just" second, while Fernando needs to sweat blood even for a fourth position. That's the difference. The fact Alonso is always in the hunt is a miracle.

A positive qualifying result for Alonso. Red Bull yet again on the front row but obviously it's close, hopefully this will be the same case in the race and Alonso can make the difference.

If FA takes the title it will be totally deserved but to say that Vettel would deserve it less is just utter bullcrap. Then again what was PdlR supposed to say - that he wishes that no spaniard would become WDC again???

Very close, and let's see if the race pace simulation was only due to less fuel on board - I doubt it. Tomorrow Fernando will be very fast! Did he not win here in 2010? What happened to Red Bull?

As we always say, good damage limitation race, but now Vettel has the advantage in points and of course with the car. Fantastic race but today something was "wrong" with the car, or the tyres or he was just simple slower than Felipe. The start was cracking.

Race pace was close but unfortunately Alonso could not make the difference. Not that he could've challenged Vettel, but I felt like he should've taken Webber today. His times were quite inconsistent however, didn't look like he was entirely happy with the car.

Yeah he was catching Webber particularly in the second stint but he clearly wasn't as happy in the final stunt.

I agree, as the drivers with better cars beat their team mates in every single race of the season. After having lost time to Massa in the middle stint, he will not be able to say he's a worthy WDC, should he get it.

Massa was faster only in the last stint, and if you watched the race you could see Alonso had massive graining in his front tyre.

Alonso now depends more on misfortunes by Vettel, or crazy races (rain, etc.) like at the start of the season.

Of the remaining races I would say only Brazil could be a better track for Ferrari if the cars stay like they are now. Brazil is a very fast circuit similar to Monza or Spa where Ferrari were dominating (although unfortunately Alonso was out of the race in Spa and then had a problem in quali in Monza).

But the title is 80% in Vettel's hands now that the advantage of Alonso vanished with his 2 zero points

Alonso's ability is largely untested hype. that's not to say he isn't but I hope Massa has regained his mojo properly now so there isn't such a cakewalk in that team.
