It's not whining as much as treating the brand like a god. Everybody's got to be so careful about what they say.
"but I am sure he is well aware what Ferrari represents and because of that, he will be even keener to give it his best shot."
Stuff like what "Ferrari represents" is getting a little stale at this point. It's like an aging beauty queen. I used to get mad at Alonso complaining too, but at this point I think the team would be better served if Luca just said "Yep, the car hasn't been much good and were watching the window close on a guy who could probably win a couple of these WDC things and because of that I need to quit pontificating and get to work " Take a page from Roger Penske, his drivers don't bitch about his team because they know that even if the car sucks, he's doing everything he can.
Sorry for the rant, I've just had enough of the Ferrari "reverence". It's just valves, chains, tires and gas, not an entity, tune it up and drive the piss out of it see you next week.
