alonso needs lewis's help as much as lewis needs hi's and they both need the support of the their teammates in order to cut as much points from vettel as possible is just as simple as that, admitting simple facts is just being realistic nothing else no conspiracy no joint effort just facts.

@me
Indeed, Lulu neither can alone himself save the Huge amount of points gap to SV.
- Massa did his best all the race,to held back SV in #5 spot, an unlucky JB had an even better pace to do the same, maybe next time they can help.. .

Come on Richard i'm not buying that you think there is something under handed there, if there was Alonso was pretty dim telling reporters live on the BBC that he would need a strong McLaren to close up the championship battle. That kind of kills off the idea of any devious secret pact.

taipan. i am not saying that there is anything underhand here, but it has happened befoe, when williams agreed not to hinder hakkinen in his quest for a title. and look at the reported comment "I need mclarens help" not "WE need to work together to stop seb". ferdi is looking for help to aid him in his wdc chase. all i am doing is stating known facts. what you make of them is your choice. but i reckon that if ferdi and seb were coming up to pass a mclaren, then you may find that passing is made easier for one person. anyway, it is good for debate!

richard - you have to remember that English is not Alonso's first language so little nuances in what he said really should not be taken so literally.

Also don't forget about Williams letting Hakkinen win in Jerez so that JV could get his title against Schumacher. Unless one of them is intentionally slowing Vettel there is nothing devious about them cooperating with each other for a common goal. I realize that you don't like bicycle racing but in that sport it is common for different teams to work together when it benefits both of them.

I think theres one big equation that nobody seems to be mentioning. Redbull's car and driver(VET) is on another level at the moment so Alonso and Hamilton and anyone else for that matter can have as much complicity as they want.
The fact is he will probably take the remaining pole positions and race wins left in the season anyway so really this is all hotair generated in some vain attempt to keep interest in a money dominated farce of a motorsport championship.
I cant belive it even has any fans, how can people not realised especially you full on fanatics,your just being played by the rich elite. These arnt the best drivers in the world. these are the best MULTIMILLIONARE drivers in the world, real talent will never turn a wheel.

@chete44 could not agree more, i am really looking forward to hungaroring because is a circuit were red bull should have the upper hand and i for one hope that mclaren and ferrari will remain as competitive and will give us a nice fight once more, will see

@. - as spectators even at the lowest club events we are just watching other people have their fun. So it really does not matter what series you are a fan of. All that matters is that you enjoy watching. If it is not for you that is fine. No one is forcing you to watch or for that matter come on here to share your opinion.
