Most people think it's the other way around, especially those who are paying Alonso. Fernando (and to some degree, Kimi) are commonly thought of as getting the absolute maximum out of inferior cars. That's why they both placed much higher in the championship than their team qualifying stats would suggest.

Also, the drivers who filled-in for the injured Massa completely sucked, despite being seasoned veterans. So the common wisdom is that Massa's about as good as many of the other top drivers, but Alonso's a step above.
