You still haven't answered me about the driver you support (I'm guessing it's Hamilton or Raikkonen, in typical Alonso-hater fashion).
I'm not the one who originally brought up Senna's 1993 season in comparison to Alonso's 2011 or 2012 seasons. You, in fact, did. You were the first one to take on this tangent.
How anyone can sit up and say Alonso was "flawless" and "drove like Senna in 1993" is beyond comprehension. I saw Senna's entire career and have every one of the 93 season's races on tape...and let me tell you, Alonso's 2012 was NOTHING like Senna's 1993.
Senna didn't need to have his teammates - Andretti and Hakkinen - purposely held back and grid dropped in 1993 in order to outscore them.
You said all this before I posted anything about 1993. LOL try again...
Again, Senna's 1993 was WAY, WAY superior.
Sorry, but Senna was the equivalent of 58 points behind Prost in 1993, Alonso was 3 behind Vettel. I don't care if the RB8 was much less dominant than the FW15 because, quite frankly, Senna's car was so much better for the entire year (particularly the beginning) than the F2012 it's not even funny.
Now, hopefully, we can get the thread back on track because, frankly, you don't have a leg to stand on when you say Alonso's seasons in 2011 and 2012 was like - or better - than Senna's in 1993. To think so is utterly laughable!
Says the guy that has already been chastised by the moderators for being unable to keep his own thread on track as well as bringing up 1993 LONG before I did. Case in point:
Keep your thread on track would be a good start.
You want to keep the thread on track, here you go:
Only a fool would belive that Alonso choked in the 2012 championship. He had the third best car, occasionally the fourth best car, and came within 3 points of the WDC. Common consensus within the F1 media is that Alonso was the driver of the year. He beat Hamilton, Button, Webber, Raikkonen etc. etc. in a car that started the year 2.5 seconds off the pace and ended .7 off the pace and finished the year with 5 podiums despite a HUGE speed deficit in qualifying thanks to uncompetetive machinery relative to his rivals.
Choke? LOL. Give me a break. The end.
It should also be noted that I haven't seen any "Hamilton choked" threads from you considering he had a better car in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 than Alonso. Where is that thread?
The responses in this thread say it all - it makes no sense
