Alonso On Hamilton

7

In what has become Fernando’s tact, he was asked what he thought about Lewis Hamilton’s chances for the title in 2009.

Fernando Alonso could have said many things about his former team and Lewis Hamilton but he has chosen to take the high road on the whole ordeal. The BBC asked Fernando what he thought of Lewis’s chances and Fernando said:

“After a year things become easier and that will give him an advantage,” he told the BBC. “After a year you know all the circuits and how the races go. You understand the pressures so there are many things that will give him an advantage compared to last year.”

Asked if Hamilton could win the title, Fernando said, “Possibly, yes. The two Ferraris and two McLarens will be able to fight for the championship.”

In my opinion, Fernando, irrespective of what happened at McLaren, has handled the situation better than Ron, McLaren or Lewis Hamilton. I also happen to think that Fernando is right, Lewis has every chance to win the title this year and we all know he has the talent to do so.

I have been impressed with Fernando so far this year, I hope this is the “new” Fernando. If he has learned his lesson and continues like this I would find it easy to cheer for him against Lewis and theose red cars.

A leopard can’t change its spots and, in Alonso’s case, a skunk can’t change the God-awful odor eminating from its tush. He’s hid his nature so far this year, but his true colors will show soon enough, probably by the end of the Melbourne race. He won’t be able to hold back the Flavio-inspired arrogance for very long. Why do all of the great drivers have to be such complete asses? I know there are exceptions to his hypothosis, so don’t come down on me like a two-ton heavy thing. Ah, if only Johnny Herbert could have had a decent… Read more »

Dave, I wonder if Alonso just have shown his true face all this years except last one due to all that mess in McLaren camp… Do you think it could be possible?

Arch, I honestly would love to believe that, but I don’t think it’s true. When Alonso first made a splash with Renault, I saw a fresh kid, wide-eyed and eager. I was genuinely excited. To me, he was a breath of fresh air from Schumacher and Montoya. And he did very well, and I was ecstatic. However, Flavio’s influence finally sunk its hooks into Alonso and he began to change. I feel his journey to the dark side of the ego is now complete and, like Darth Vader, the only way to bring him back is to destroy him. What… Read more »

Well, Dave, maybe you are anxious for another McLaren battle of the century…. I will sit down and enjoy the fires…. I’m not a great Alonso fan (no more fan of him than fan of any of the other 23 guys driving an F1, and I can say this because Ralf has gone… je je). But I’m sure that the pressure this guy had last year is enough to give you a luxury trip to the dark side, riding in a bright white horse. The question is: what do you see that can happen this year? Could it be that… Read more »
