    He may be WDC but he’s still a wanker.

    I swear it is a defining characteristic of an Alonso fan to be a petty, oncomptetent, and annoying rube. LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! my driver lost so I’m going to sit and post irrelevant comments slamming someone unfairly. Vettel won, Alonso lost, again. Deal with it. I’d like to remind you that Vettel should be the quadruple world champion right now if Alonso and Renault didn’t fix the ’09 Abu Dhabi GP. You Alonso ball swingers complain about Red Bull cheating, it may be time for some introspection.

    4million? To think Ferrari if they had not failed Alonso yet again was to be given 14 million in championship bonus. Had he won.

    Funny thing, he probably earning less than Massa :D Of course mental compensation was always expensive!

    Good luck with next season to Massa. Grats to Vettel!
