Apropos of nothing; how would Ferrari supporters feel about Hamilton in you team in 2015/16? I think it would only happen if Alonso left, but would the Tifosi welcome him or is he persona non grata?

I can't think of a reason why they would be upset by his arrival.

 

I think a competitive car is more important and top of the wish list though. The driver line up isn't exactly a problem.

Why not. For me any top class driver is welcome to Ferrari.

So was Alonso but now he is one of the best drivers ever to have sat in a Ferrari and the Tifosi love him now.

The problem is the amount of energy that is put during traction & braking zones. This puts as much energy on the tyre as turn 3 in Barcelona.

 

It shouldn't be worse than Spa... acceleration after turn 1, eau rouge (now that's some load), braking on the end of the straight, multiple fast corners, bus stop braking, etc etc.. and the softs can take it easily with more DF (extra load to the tire).

He wasn't Ferrari at that time. It's like when football suporters boo the other team.

I remember the banners that greeted Michael Schumacher during his first test for Ferrari... telling him to **** off and how the tifosi wanted Alesi back. I also remember how pragmatic Michael was regarding driving for Ferrari, until he won with one at Monza in 1996. As much as Hamilton likes to open his mouth there is passion in his driving and I think the tifosi would adore him.

You cant help but admire Alonso's spirit though. He just never, ever gives up, no matter how bad the car is. He'll fight as hard for tenth place as for a win. Hamilton has never shown that sort of determination before plus Alonso speaks Italian.

Yeah, yeah, but did the tifosi love Prost more than Mansell?

 

ps from my viewpoint in the far distance, I think Hamilton's a bit of a knob, but I've always had the feeling he was destined to end up at Ferrari. Just too big a story not to happen.

Context is king here, does anyone expect the tifosi to cheer for Alonso when he was the enemy, the guy that was fighting Schumacher and end up winning him?.

I won a Schumacher once. Imagine my disappointment when it turned out to be Emil. Drove me to abstraction.

I'd be glad that the team had a top driver, and that is ultimately what is most important I guess, but I wouldn't exactly be 'happy' to have him. Alonso says some nonsense at times and can whine a bit, but Lewis has a bigger problem with what tends to come out of his mouth and I'd rather not have that baggage if there's an option.

I would also not looking forward to some of the more rabid of his fanbase that would come along with him....

I think it would be great if they got Alonso and Hamilton together. Imagine the insightful discussions we could look forward to!

I would probably just have to retire from this board and just watch and enjoy F1 by myself.

If Hamilton decides he's really not happy at Mercedes then it'll be Ferrari or McLaren. And I reckon he'd prefer Ferrari. And I reckon Ferrari would find room for him. And I don't reckon they want to lose Alonso. So never say never...

Alonso and Hamilton together fighting eachother for the last points positions,  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

 

Being serious, Hamilton's qualities mean he would be an undeniable favourite with the tifosi imo.

Lewis or Fred? Fred is much loved. But he can't compare to Michael or Jean Alesi with the tifosi.

I think Ferrari are finally stable with 2 proven quality and can focus on more important things than weekly-yearly dramas that leads the team nowhere.

With the mega domination fastest car under Hamilton, he still has been continuously beaten by Rosberg in Qualifying. Add to that, Rosberg has clearly winning the mental side of things as well, while Ricciardo is making the most of Mercedes Team going disarray babysitting grown up drivers.

Ferrari are in a great situation with their current drivers solely focused on improving the car, while Hamilton is busy focussing on Rosberg making a point. It's not like Hamilton has done anything with better cars than Ferrari & Lotus in 2010, 2011 & 2012.

Yes because nothing excites a tifoso like a huge (even for F1 standards) entitlement complex  :smoking:

The Tifosi would love Lewis.  His driving flare and speed would be perfect. In some ways it would be good for him.  He would be driving for 'them' and this would get the best out of him and give him the emotional support he needs.
