    Ron Dennis ambivalent about Alonso

    The mighty mouth of SauRon strikes again
    This almost rivals the time he publicly accused David Coulthard (when he was at McLaren) of brainfade after a non-finish and it later turned that it was the car that broke down

    You don't have to go flat out all the time, you only need to go as fast as what is required to win the championship. MS understands this, and so does Alonso.

    And why did Alonso have such a large points lead Ron? Because your car is CRAP!!

    From itv-f1:

    Quote:
    McLaren boss Ron Dennis doesn't believe that new champion Fernando Alonso is really a match for Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya, despite beating them to the world championship this year.

    "Our drivers certainly have better equipment but personally I feel they're also better drivers," Dennis told Autosport-Atlas.

    "This may sound like sour grapes and I'm taking something away from him, which I'm certainly not, but it's the way I feel."

    Dennis said that because Alonso's large points lead has allowed him to drive conservatively, he hasn't demonstrated that he has the speed of a true champion.

    "We'll only know now how strong or not he is, because he's been driving percentages over the last few races," said Dennis.

    Even if Alonso had gone flat-out in Brazil, he wouldn't have beaten the McLaren drivers, reckoned Dennis.

    "That wouldn't have made any difference," he said.

    In contrast to Dennis' ambivalence, Williams co-owner Patrick Head described Alonso as "brilliant".

    "He has done a fantastic job, he made almost no mistakes all year and made brilliant use of the equipment he had," Head said.

    Patrick Head got it right
