F1 » Alonso keen for Massa to win in Brazil and Abu Dhabi

In a statement likely to raise a few eyebrows within the paddock, F1 2010 World Championship leader Fernando Alonso has said that the ideal situation for him would be for his Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa to win the last two grands prix of the campaign in Brazil and Abu Dhabi

Yes, blzbub as long as he comes behind Massa he'll be alright. I don't thnik this will be the case. Felipe is not motivated at the moment and Ferd will have to fend for himself.

For the last 2 races of this year it is Massa's job to finish behind Alonzo (if he's in the points). There won't be anything said on the radio, but, if they are running 1&2 with Massa in front, he will put a wheel off, or go wide somewhere.

@Maxx - That will only happen if he has learned the "McLaren way" of carrying out team orders. Felipe will more likely pull off the racing line and hit the brakes on the long straight so that everyone knows what the deal is.

I've always thought Alonso was the hole in ones derrier and now he has just confirmed it. He is clearly trying to undermine Massa and is really saying "if you win, it's because I let you".

Hopefully Massa will win both races by a country mile with Alonso no where to be seen.

In the last couple of races Massa's Ferrari will probably have the same "mechanical issue" that always affected Barrichello when Schumacher was behind him. As Brundle sarcastically put it when the team reported that it was a "brake problem" slowing Barrichello's car, "They mean the handbrake, presumably."
