I really start to love him!
That guy got so much pride, he´s a traditional southern european character, I like that. Most of todays F1 drivers are half kids or media controlled marionettes. He´s a real man.
And one of the best racing drivers ever, top 10 definitely, likely better.
I think in dry conditions he´s absolutely on par with Michael Schumacher or Ayrton Senna. He´s currently at the peak of his skills, I hope the Renault will be competetive from day 1 in 2009.
a short translation:
"Alonso promises to help Massa"
Alonso hopes to help Felipe Massa through his own input to become worldchampion.
Massa is 5 points behind Lewis Hamilton. It is known, that Alonso doesn't think positively about his last season in McLaren team as Hamilton's team mate.
- I hope Ferrari wins after all what I went through last season in McLaren. If I can, I will help Massa, Alonso stated according to Gazzetta dello Sport's website.
Hamilton got a drive-through penalty in Fuji when the British driver pushed Kimi Raikkonen out of the track by braking tires locked and storming in the inside curve.
-On press conference I was asked if Hamilton's penalty was right in my opinion. I immediately answered yes although I didn't even know why he was punished, Alonso laughed.
