this clearly indicates an MSC type envionment returning to Ferrari. and all these things are going against Massa.
whatever you say .... massa is going to be just a driver who will score points for the constructor in the upcoming days.
I think it is huge that Alonso is coming with some engineers, and unfortunatly for Massa, Alonso will probably get most of the testing time and the car built to suit his style. A shame really, gotta be somewhat demoralizing for Massa with the injury and all, Lets just hope he can rise to the adversity like he did in Brazil last year.
Alonso is going to be the designated #1 bcause Santander Bank says he will be. Massa was always hired to be a fantastic support but when DeMont muscles Schumacher out Schumacher repaid the favour by working with Massa to help him reach his potential as a driver. Massa ended up giving Kimi a bigger run for his money than anyone at Ferrari or Kimi thought was possible. So Yes I have no doubt that Massa will rise again to dish out the same to Alonso.
Schumacher will stay on at Ferrari as advisor and guess who he will work with more than not......yep Massa. So at least thanks to Schumacher, Massa will get special treatment at Ferrari.
Although I have always seen and respected Alonso's talent, he is one of the biggest a***h*le in f1; I hope Massa hands him his butt on a platter.
One thing thats the MS management at Ferrari never was is selfish. Data was always available to MS teammates fo rthem to use or not. Often that helped MS and often it worked the other way round too.
One thing Alonso does not how to do is share. Lewis found that out quickly but being the person he is, he simply got on with work and still beat Alonso. When the mindgames did not work he tried to play the number one card and that didnot work with Ron.
real pity that Ferrari is going down the Alonso route but I guess everyone has to get their fingers burnt at least once
