Hang on... Berger did not say this. At no point does he accuse Weber of deliberately taking out Rosberg. And anyway is Rosberg a title rival for 2010???

He said "He took out Rosberg, but it was the wrong one. I think in his mind he would have preferred Alonso or Hamilton."

ie. His crash took out Rosberg but he'd have probably wished it was Alonso or Hamilton.

I really don't see the fuss.

Shocking headlines is part of modern journalism. Live with it, its what you makes read this stuff.

Oh, wait. After reading comments here it is very clear that headline is the only part of an article that most of people posting here actually read.

So do not blame crash - with each article it gives you a chance to argue with eachother on these forums, even if you are not familiar with what is inside tha article :D.
PS. Headline is quite misleading thou. :P

I luuurve this part of the season, with all the conspiracy theories! Keep em coming, people! I'm loving it. And let's look forward to a barnstorming end to this exciting season!

One thing's for sure...whoever wins this WDC, it gonna be real sweet for them. For the sporting purists, it should be Webber in the end. But for the courageous diehards, it should be Alonso.

you're not wrong BS, this season will go down in history as one of the finest. victory will certainly be sweet for whoever gets it. a close championship brings out all the scandal mongering and would you expect anything less, it's the world driver's championship after all and with so many players still in contention it's finally got some value.

This is about the dumbest thing I have read on here so far.

Yeah, it makes a lot of sense to try and take out ONE of his rivals, and allow VETTEL to win and take the points lead for himself (at the time of the crash, no one knew Vettel would have an engine meltdown)! But, of course RBR would support Webber in his championship quest even if Vettel were ahead...oh wait....

Berger's spot on. I can't believe this wasn't looked into by the FIA, it would be very interesting to see the telemetary, we can already see from the onboard footage that he pulls a hard right to bring the car back onto the circuit and in doing so, into the path of his rivals!

I've lost so much respect for Mark Webber. Very poor sportsmanship.

Roseberg confirmed that Webber should have applied the brakes.

He should have been on the brakes," said Rosberg. "It is dangerous to roll back on the brakes like that, he agrees and he said sorry. So to me it is fine

When Roseberg says it's fine with him is he alluding that it shouldn't be fine to others???
