“Alonso did have some bad luck in crashing out in Japan and Belgium when it was not his fault.
But Vettel had two alternator failures in races. OK, they are things the team have influence over but he still lost as many races as Alonso.
Equally, Red Bull allow their drivers to race early in the season, whereas Ferrari have a defined number one.
If you take Red Bull and give Vettel their big points from every race, Vettel thrashes Alonso comprehensively”.
