Reliable, yes. Best car, are you kidding? I know you hate Alonso but come on.
best car means he might have not the fastest car in most of the races but he nearly always enjoyed the 2nd fastest car (once mclaren was ahead, another time redbull, once even williams and today renault) with the - again - by FAR best reliability ever seen in f1. let me go through it to prove my point: senna in 1988? no. prost in 1989? no. senna in 1990 or 1991? no. mansell in 1992? no. prost in 1993 no. schuey in 94 or 95 not at all, hill in 96 nowhere close, villeneuve in 97? nope, hakkinen in 98 or 99? i wished! schuey in 00-04? close but NO; alonso himself in 05 or 06? nope. raikkonen in 2007? not at all. hamilton in 08? no. button in 09? nearly but no. vettel in 10 no otherwise he would have been wdc with 3 races to go. in 11? close but no.
dont claim its because im not alonsos biggest supporter here. i just state the facts. ok, we still have 2 races to go and if alonso dnfs in one of the next it looks different but so far he has enjoyed the best car with amazing reliability. period.
