    But as Martin Brundle once said, he “underperformed in a good car, and overperformed in a poor car”.

    Weird thing but true ...

    The World have many good drivers, Fisi is one of them. But in F1 is needed to be more than a good driver to be successful (at least for the non pay drivers). And luck as well is always welcome...

    giancarlo was a great driver, but alonso is the best and has an ability to push the car into limits never known. that's why giancarlo got underrated, because you can do nothing to win alonso.

    So if he's the best and you can't win against him: how come he didn't win the WDC for quite some time? :)

    Don't you know that Vettel's car is so quick that even a squirrel would win the Drivers' Championship three times in a row? There was hardly anything Vettel could have done to avoid that!

    It's always something else, right?

    Vettel is quick because of the car, Alonso is slow because of the car. Everyone's in favour of Red Bull, everone hates Ferrari. And so on...:roflmao:

    Giancarlo was good... as long as everything was in perfect alignment.
    He reminded me a lot of Massa.
    The thing that separated them, was Fisi's ability to go into a very 'deep' funk when that alignment unraveled.
    Massa stays a bit more upbeat when things start to fall apart.

    Whenever I think of Fisichella I think of Suzuka '05. Losing a huge lead to a guy who started in P17 while your teammate also managed to claw his way through the field - come on :rolleyes:

    So no, definitely not underrated.

    Yes he was under rated. He must of had talent to last as long as he did and get the drives he did.
    Only a select few go on to dominate and be champions.

    I think as Alsons's teammate the team where on Allons's side. They needed a good reliable driver to fill the 2nd seat and not upset Alonso.
    Just like Barichello was not respected at Ferrari because they where on Shumachers side.
    Team favorites will get data and even technical or electronic upgrades bared from team mates.
