“For me the important thing is the Drivers’ championship, not only for me, for everybody,” Alonso said in Interlagos, Brazil. “We see all the publicity on the motorways, everywhere from China onwards. I think we only see Michael’s and Alonso’s face on the pictures. You don’t see the logo of Ferrari and Renault. I think the people remember which driver is the champion and which car he drove. I don’t think anyone remembers ten years ago who was the Constructors’ champion.”

Here is one fella who “likes” to speaks only truth, irrespective of how bitter it is ! Now only if Renault comes up with their side of bitter truth. But what he is saying is a fact, people generally remember the Driver who won the championship over th years and not the team.

    Better late than never. Atleast he realised now that the team is behind him and that the team wants to win the Drivers championship more than the contructors championship. This is in sharp contrast to his whining a few weeks earlier that the team wanted to win the constructors championship more than the drivers championship. Alonso is a great driver but his recent comments come across as a spoilt brat who cant take it when things dont go his way.

    And oh yes, I think everyone knew that the WDC was more important than the WCC. Who remembers that Ferrari won the WCC in 1999. All we know is that Mika was the WDC. Everyone considers the WDC more important than the WCC , except perhaps Alonso , who for a while thought otherwise 😉
