That sounds amazingly similar to what happens to F1 internet forumers First you criticise Alonso for signalling the defending WDC as the favourite (Raikkonen in 2008), then you criticise him for not signalling the current defending WDC as the favourite, and finally you criticise him for saying that, lacking other information, one has to give the label of "most dangerous" among the WDCs to the man with seven titles. Exactly what can Alonso say not to trigger your displeasure?;)
I´m not even judging if the comments are right or wrong, point went well over your head!! The topic is how he will change his view on his fellows -or any topic actually- depending on what idea he wants to spread at any particular moment. I didn´t even judge the comments individually, but I can do right now if you want to hear my view:
-His view on 2008 was wrong. Hamilton was as good as Räikkönen and was in a team just as good at that time.
-His view on 2011 was wrong. Schumacher wasn´t in the top drivers group and wasn´t in a top team either.
-His view in 2013 is wrong. Vettel is as much of a threat as Hamilton.
Surely you´ll agree with these things, especially now we have the advantage of hindsight on some of that. And how can he get it that wrong despite being part of the sport? He doesn´t get it wrong, he just says whatever he wants others to think. Surely he knew in 2008 Hamilton was as good as Kimi, surely he knew in 2011 Schumacher was not up to the level of Lewis and Seb, surely he knows by now that Vettel is more of a threat for 2013 than Vettel.
What can he do to not trigger my displeasure? Stop throwing propaganda to match whatever he wants to spread at a particular moment. Just do what he does best: get in that car and drive it.
Or if he is the kind that needs to air his view on everything like a mere pundit or forumer, doing it honestly and sensibly would just serve.
