That's it! It's all Alonso's fault.

And ... Clearly the man can't drive, even with one hand (almsot) tied behind his back.

Let's crucify him in the usual crash.net manner.

You know whats funny is Alonso was asked before the race if he had to remove one hand from the wheel in order to operate his F-duct. He answered NO! 30 min later in the race there he is removing his hand to operate his F-duct. Nothing worse then a LIAR! And he did not know about the race fix in Singapore either "RIGHT" :-o

If someone gets injured during the rest of the season surely the FIA could be held acountable for knowingly being aware of the problem but not doing anything about it :?

If they are arguing it should be banned on safety grounds then why are they waiting until next season :rolleyes:

Or is that too sensible for them to do :?

He actually took a hand off of the steering wheel??? While driving???? Incredible!!!! Plastic ty-wraps around his wrists and the wheel will cure that offence. Also get rid of all the buttons and knobs from the wheel. What happens if he wants to remove a tear off? or pick his nose? or scratch his nuts? I think it's time for remote control boxes in the drivers hnds while he's sitting in the hospitality suite.
