I think that sometimes Alonso speaks too much. The incident was about racing, nothing more.

Alonso was aggressive turning into the corner on Massa, but Massa gave Alonso nowhere to go,while Alonso gave Massa enough room on the inside
if Alonso was first after the first corner he would have won the race. Overtaking is almost impossible at this track

I think it was a normal dispute, his only this upset over it because it was his home grand prix and Hamilton finished ahead of him. If it had of been the other way around would he of let Massa through i think not

Massa was right on... no overbreaking... no sliding into Alonso. Alonso didn't look into his rearview mirrors and bumped into Massa.

I called Alonso is beginning to crack, no doubt about it. He's on an a british team with mostly british sponsors and a (Black) rookie British racecar driver giving him a run for his money! You can see on the podium how distant Alonso and Lewis are. Lewis even went out of his way to congratulate Massa.

I think this may go down as one of those famous teammate rivalries. Villenueve vs. Pironi, Piquet vs. Mansell, Senna vs. Prost... Go Lewis!!

Alonso tried to force Massa of track and Massa didn't rollover. Alonso should quite winging no-one wants to hear it he should get on with driving

What a guts that took standing up the two time defending champ. Massa gets some serious credit for holding his line and giving Alonso just enough room not to completely wreck. When I saw Massa on the inside and Alonso on the outside I thought it was going to be a repeat of what we saw last race. Props to Massa, and Alonso shut the hell up!

It was an interesting corner to say the least: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQJCUC5gvDI

Massa had him going in quite clearly.. I think Alonso was hoping he could carry enough speed to take his car alongside Massa (cleanly) and take him on the inside in turn 2. If you watch Lewis and Kimi right behind them it is almost the same situation, but Kimi wisely slips in behind Lewis. Driver error on Alonso's part.

Right phillyred79, I´ve seen Kimi and Lewis before you posted, I was talking with a friend exactly the same thing... Kimi was more carefull and wanted to wait for the right time (but unfortunatelly his Ferrari ....) and Alonso paid the price for have taken the risk...

Nope. There's nothing to complain.
But since it's alonso who's complaining, i'm not surprised.
