It was Alonsos mistake. He screwed up his first timed lap in q3. He would have had time to start another lap if he wouldn't had let Kimi past.
Agree that he made a mistake and with hindsight a big one. But by the time it didn't look like it would stop rainning, so the latter time to make the lap, the worse.
He did a mistake in the first flying, and in the second one he ended 5th. But nobody could foresee that suddenly it would stop rainning and the ones who managed one extra lap would have better conditions, because it looked like the opposite of that. So it was a driving mistake exaggerated by luck.
Edit: Also it is true that if Ferrari had put the cars on track earlier, maybe he wouldn't have pushed as hard, which could have contributed to the mistake.
