From my view it was Alonso blackmailing Ron, and blocking his teamm8 in pits etc and some questionable moves in race. What did hamilton actually do wrong apart from race?
Hamilton complained publically about being #2 to the extent he got FIA scrutineering the team in Monaco.
all the fuzz in Hungary by disobeying the team strategy. If he'd fulfilled his part as was planned nothing that happened afterwards would have happened.
Didn't you know this?
Then of course we have the crane incident and Hamilton's driving under SC in Fuji. The crane thing wasn't really Hamilton's fault, but he can consider himself lucky he got away both with that and without penalty in Fuji.
For Alonso blackmailing Ron it's not known what was actually said/done that day. The blackmail story is a British press invention. Not even Ron himself has said Alonso blackmailed him. Same goes for "questionable" Alonso moves, not even Ron found anything questionable about them, let alone the stewards of the race.
Let me go through your aspect itself. Hamilton disrespected team strategy fine. Why can't Alonso do the talking on track and take pole ? I think that's the best way to respond to anyone who is obstructing your progress. Any World Champion for this matter except Alonso, would have put a flying lap and taken pole position on qualifying.
Alonso blackmailing Ron is not false. Its portrayed differently. He pushed some emails from his inbox to Max & he threatened Ron about blowing things out of proportion. It was Ron Dennis who reported to FIA, that Alonso claims he has some information about the scandal and he would like to bring it to the notice of FIA. The team boss was a true gentleman. He accepted whatever it is and stood his ground.
Mclaren never followed 1-2 driver policy. There are many examples to this instance. Prost / Senna went to win titles alternatively in Mclaren and at times they won by either 1 or 2 points. That was the margin. Mika Hakkinen in 1999 Belgium was desperate to win the GP but Coulthard wasn't out of the reckoning for the championship, Did Mclaren issue any team orders ? No .. Coulthard won the race, Mika came in second. In 2006 US GP, Montoya ran right into him team-mate Kimi, kimi got out of the car and walked back to the motor home as if nothing happened.
Alonso should learn from the Iceman Kimi Raikkonen as to how to behave like a World Champions. Champions do their talking on the track ... Alonso does all the c**p talking to Spanish media and the Spanish Motorsports group comes up with ridiculous allegations against the team.
In 2006, after the US Grand Prix ... Alonso stated that Renault were sabotaging his attempt to win second world title. That's what he is made off. Accusations, allegations & transferring blame to others head !
Right now he is looking for a seat in a Ferrari. How selfish ! He says his contract is always open and he can jump wherever he wants. Is that kind of attitude a champion should carry ??? I don't think so. I have never seen such an arrogant, selfish world champion.
