The #2 driver, on a top team that has a clear hierarchy, essentially sells his soul. He trades his pride and status with his peers, for race wins he wouldn't get anywhere else. We're seeing it with Webber, we saw it with Barrichello and we're seeing it with Massa, who has almost becomes Alonso's pet. They're pitiable creatures. and we can relate to their pain. For who among us wouldn't make the same deal?
I don't think you should put too much pity on Massa. Brundle made a comment at the end of the Chinese Grand Prix about Massa's resurgence lately, but the fact that he was 20 seconds behind Alonso with 5-10 laps left shows why Alonso is #1
