Alonso is an enigma to me. The unique way he handled those michelin shod Renaults with his agressive turn in to induce understeer made people brand him as a driver who prefers the rear to be on rails and a front that he can shuffle commiting to the apex very early. As just a regular fan i am not so sure. I think that was simply the fastest way to drive those Renaults.
He has never come out on record and said what balance he prefers. In fact he beatifully drifted his Mclaren which was built on decades of input from hakkinen and raikkonen. Hamilton had came out and said that he and Alonso required different things from the car, but was not it ironic that Hamilton was cheerfully using an identical car with Alonso's base setups for half the season? I think Alonso can drive the car the fastest way. I don't think ballance unsettles him. I am also one of the people that believ that a car cannot be tailored to a driver from the drawing board.
The dreaded F14T had many oversteer on exit moments over the year . It is something no driver likes. I cannot say for sure that the handling charasteristic of that car was a failed attempt to engineer the suspension, differential and aerobalance for Alonso. I think is a shot in the dark actually. Haha. Kimi also did not get a custom front suspension or steering rack like he had done mid season at lotus, ferrari in 2009 and Mclaren. So it is clear to me that if the suspension geometry was the real problem Ferrari are smart enough and rich enough to change it for him. That was not the case though so I personally have ruled out that Alonso DNA is in the F14T.
The handling characteristic of the beast donning seven horns whose number is 666 is anyone's guess haha.
