To all anti-Ferrari english gits : finally you get what you cheaters started. Having rednecks at the top of the governing bodies, there'll never be a fair competition in any sport. I'd rather cheer for a slug than those creeps of LH & JB..& by the way say hello to to Dennis 'The Rat', MacLaren,unfortunately is still s**t! & use your pea brains to finally construct an english engine! FORZA FERRARI!

dear sirs
Ithink the results of the german grand prix was a disgrace and a let down for all the people who follow the grand prix it ruined my wife and myself's enjoyment as we look forward to every race,the fine was like given five pounds to a charity, i hope something is done because if i have good money to see this race i would have demanded my money back, my opinion of alonso he is a frustrated child and a poor sportsman.

One poster is telling rob01 not to waste his breath on here. He is the only one on here that is not blinded by hate for FA. It wasn't FA that instructed FM to slow, it was the team, which is undesirable but these are the way things go, happens all the time in WRC. He was being held up but it is near impossible to pass an identical car without a do or die manouvre which could have ended in tears for both drivers. I Ferrari hadn't issued the instruction, they could have ended up with no points from the race. The want the constuctors first and if one of the drivers wins the WDC all the better for them and let's face it, more chance of FA winning tham FM. Don't forget all teams do it.

Does anyone who thinks that Massa should not have let Alonso by really believe that Massa still has a shot at the title? Even Alonso will have to win almost all of the remaining races to have a chance.

I was the one who told rob01 to stop wasting his time with the Alonso haters - for the same reasons you gave.

I sometimes wonder whether I am watching the same sport as some of these other posters. I've lost count of the number of times Alonso has NOT attacked Massa on track, despite being held up by him. Obviously the haters will say he was scared of Massa, rather than see that he was actually doing that for the team.

Last weekend it happened again, and Vettel was closing fast, plus Alonso didn't want the stupidity of the RBR drivers to happen to Ferrari. Obviously his haters will ignore these facts and prefer to call him a cheat, thief and a con man - like he's a gambler or something lol

@Mark. Without the German fiasco, Massa would have 92 points and Alonso 116 points. That's only 24 points difference. And with 200 points still on the table, that ain't much of a difference. 1 race and Massa could have been leading Alonso. So yes I think it was way too early for teamorders. Let's say next 8 races Massa will give his wins away to Alonso, for what is the drivers title worth? When 1 wins it with fighting and overtaking and other will get his win by team orders? And isn't GP win worth nothing nowadays, that you just give it away? It should be something special, but Ferrari make it look like it's worth nothing. And all the lying in the press conference...just makes me sick.

@EST - Thanks for responding. I would agree with you if the goal was just to beat your teammate. Massa had about half the points that Hamilton did. Even if Massa wins all of the remaining races he wouldn't be guaranteed of taking the title. I think that Alonso is too far back for the title but he has a much better chance than Massa. To put it in perspective Massa is still behind Kubica and Rosberg.

It does appear that you recognize a need for team orders later in the season, but they might not get that chance later. If Massa had indeed been faster then it would be a different story. Given Massa's YTD results there is no reason to think that Massa will be faster at the remaining races.
