Fernando Alonso at Korean Grand Prix 2010

Most people had predicted it would be young Lewis Hamilton who would threaten Michael’s legacy of records in formula one, but Fernando Alonso is the one who is knocking on the door.

The surprising win at the first ever Korean Grand Prix meant that the Spaniard inched closer to his 3rd World Championship title, a feat which the German Schumacher had achieved at the age of 31.

More Praise : Meanwhile Gerhard Berger claimed that Fernando Alonso is in the same league as Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna.

“There are sometimes those special drivers: Ayrton Senna was one, Michael Schumacher was one, and Alonso is one” said the Austrian champion

Meanwhile Berger also cast a shadow on the sportmanship of Red Bull driver Mark Webber who in this youtube video seems to be gunning for Fernando Alonso after his car developed a snag.
