But that was not the point. In what way do you not play with what-ifs?
Is say that P7 is not indication for anything. It was no "normal" race.
You said that they would have been P10 or 11 if all the cars in front finished. But they didn't. That is a fact.
You're hypothesising based on "what if" all the cars finished (ie: a normal race).
So if you're assuming that cars in front didn't crash into each other, then we have to also allow for Alonso not getting crashed into.
And if the cars in front didn't crash and Alonso still managed to come back to P10 with all the damage he had to his car, then I would still say that's not a bad thing. Many drivers would have retired that car!!
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...
