Its not that I dont like his rating, but its one of the thing I will wait after the race. I dont want this forum to be totally dominated by Hamiltons fan.

let's make a new rule for the last 2 races :
incidents involving cars 2 and 22 will never be examined


that means that massa and ham can ram anyone and can drive wherever and however they want but also the rest of the field do whatever they want on them (e.g. ram them)

that would end all conflicts and make the championship fight more interesting and probably more fair!

Balanced, huh? One Massa fan, one Hamilton die-hard, and two strong Hamilton leaners. Anyway, as we found out at Spa, Zack/Charlie has no control over the decisions. :)

Anyway, it's not that, and I know you're only saying this whole thing as a joke, but the guys who do it have to make tough decisions, often contraversial. They are not to be underestimated, and they do as well and as quick a job as they can. It's not really their fault, it's more the system's. The system needs overhaul.

They are the men for the job, not a selection of F1 fanatics from a forum.

I think it was a joke to start with mate. :O

I really start to love him! :)
That guy got so much pride, he´s a traditional southern european character, I like that. Most of todays F1 drivers are half kids or media controlled marionettes. He´s a real man.
And one of the best racing drivers ever, top 10 definitely, likely better.
I think in dry conditions he´s absolutely on par with Michael Schumacher or Ayrton Senna. He´s currently at the peak of his skills, I hope the Renault will be competetive from day 1 in 2009.

Alonso with Massa?, I don't think so.

It's true he don't want Lewis win championship (and he said this, not that he would help massa).

But also, if Massa don't win championship, and Ferrari loose Constructor, sure Ferrari will done maybe for next year. So bad news for ferrari are good for Alonso.

Sure Alonso prefer Kubica win championship. He can do it (kimi can not now, only lewis, massa and kubica) and he is very friend of him. If Alonso help anyone will be Kubica. But look today, Alonso had stolen 2 point to kubica!!!

Hi,
Apologies if I've asked this question before - but how do I obtain the lap breakdown from FP1-FP3, and the race in the FIA website?

I navigated to the website but I could not find the relevant information.

a short translation:

"Alonso promises to help Massa"

Alonso hopes to help Felipe Massa through his own input to become worldchampion.

Massa is 5 points behind Lewis Hamilton. It is known, that Alonso doesn't think positively about his last season in McLaren team as Hamilton's team mate.

- I hope Ferrari wins after all what I went through last season in McLaren. If I can, I will help Massa, Alonso stated according to Gazzetta dello Sport's website.

Hamilton got a drive-through penalty in Fuji when the British driver pushed Kimi Raikkonen out of the track by braking tires locked and storming in the inside curve.

-On press conference I was asked if Hamilton's penalty was right in my opinion. I immediately answered yes although I didn't even know why he was punished, Alonso laughed.

Yes!! That is great! You can see Hamilton goes off all on his own at the fast kink. Now I know why he was behind Massa in the first place.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
