    probably yes. like 75-25 ratio.

    In race definitely Alonso would give ham hard time. that's why I gave 75%.

    But vet has edge in quali. where Alonso lacks a little bit. Of course this year he's turning it up.

    Lewis has the edge in quali. 72 so far ! Oh ! It's the car. So Alonso in "The car" would be the main quali. man for sure.

    it depends which Alonso would have turned up. If it was the 2010 version where he made a few mistakes, then probably not. But the 2012 Alonso would have had a good shot.

    Where's the NO option????

    Without MECH. failures and DNF's......yes. Why? The way he drives that MCL32 in the back and mid-field pack with lack of power. Imagine him in the SF70H?

    Doubt it, maybe it would've been closer but because of the mechanical issues Lewis would've won anyway. We need to remember, the only real mistake Seb did was maybe Singapore, and that was a racing incident at the end of the day. Baku was pure road rage. What could've Alonso do more than just not being the cause of the accident in Singapore?

    You could say racing incident but ultimately he lost the wdc because of Baku and Singapore where he could have won both of those races

    And then there were the reliability issues on Malaysia and Japan which also did not help him much

    So shouhave wouldhave couldhave......we can debate this for weeks......what is done is done
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Well, if it was Alonso, then potentially the fight could've gone to Abu Dhabi but with Lewis heaving a healthy advantage.

    this year was all about qualifying. Alonso might have done better or he might have done worse. I don't understand why so many think Vettel is not as good as Alonso? I think he's proven himself. Especially regarding team and moral building.

    +1 I totally agree.
    Vettel is just as good as Alonso if not the better of the two and much stronger in team & moral building.

    We'll never know but I had to vote Yes.

    Smashed? No. I think it would have gone to Abu Dhabi, and I think Alonso might have won it there. I think Alonso would have won Baku and Singapore. Both him and Massa were much better starters than Vettel and Raikkonen. Like I said earlier this year, the guys need to come over to the US and practice some drag racing.

    FORZA FERRARI!

    I voted yes. Alonso is a very clever driver. He doesnt make many mistakes, if at all, and he would not have given in to road rage as it happened in Baku.
    So yes, he would likely have won it.

    Oh , wait !

    On a serious note, I am not sure. It depends on what version of Alonso would turn up, if he could be able to handle mishaps or he would behave like a lil bitch, if this was about Schumacher being able to win this, a pre retirement Michael, most definitely.

    Yeah, if Michael could've won 1999 if it wasn't for his injury, then a prime Michael would've definitely won this year.

    Not smashed Lewis, but I’m sure Alonso would’ve won this title in Ferrari.

    Yeah, depends what version of Michael turned up, either by punting out Lewis in the final race or maybe a wise challenger. Kidding....

    A prime Michael is a prime Michael He was a consistent monster. Alonso had his ups and downs in performance.

    Why would we assume Alonso would have won? He always finished 2nd or 3rd in the Ferrari when he was here? What might have been different this year? To me Vettel's time at Ferrari is very reminiscent of Alonso's time here. Except the team seems more cohesive.

    Alonso needed the same performance "Monster car!" A good example is Lewis the 2017 monster! 72 poles!! Hard to believe.

    Both times Alonso was voted driver of the year, says a lot about car performance gap between Ferrari & RB. But yeah 2014 keeps hurting some
