Did any of you conspriacists watch the race? Perez nearly lost it on a painted kerb, he didn't slow down.

And let me ask, how much more could Ferrari ask for engines that could contribute to a Sauber win?

How many teams would buy an engine knowing that you couldn't overtake it's manufacturer?

How did Redbull beat Renault so many times in the last year? How many times has Mclaren beaten Mercedes????

fans are going to jump on this cos they are dumbassess. TV pundits will fan it cos they know.
The fact is the 'useless' ferrari and its driver are top of the table. 3 weeks to improve the car as well.

@einar, kikiriki, Luis Neto: the fools who watch F1 and talk all of Rubbish. And for Luis Neto, sauber told perez to be careful, not to slow down.
Why? Because they know it's Alonso ahead , and you know the likes of Alonso when he defend his position, lil bit aggresive move could be a chaos for sauber and cause them ruin their chance for first ever podium and such a haul points. Simple.

If they told senna, we need this position, it would have went in one ear and out of the other. A real racing driver races to win (im not saying sergio slowed down).

If you spend any time at all following Sauber and listening to their radio, you know they're a conservative team and what happened today is what happens any time a Sauber car is in points position and closing on another car in the dying laps. Sauber -always- tells their drivers not to risk it and to protect their points, because when you're a small midfield team, points are everything. Risking 18 points on the chance you might get 7 more isn't worth it to them.

There was a super hilarious communication to Kobayashi in one of the later races last year - if anyone remembers which, say so? That was basically the pit wall saying, "Oh god, please -please- don't do anything stupid, we need these points." The instruction wasn't unusual, but the desperation with which it was delivered was pretty funny. But I don't remember any squawks of conspiracy or team orders then, or any other time I've heard Sauber give that direction.

Funny, the first result that came up on Google for Kobayashi Sauber radio was a youtube video from sauberjap, and it wasn't even the one I was thinking of. Can't post a link, but look it up and take a listen. Was Sauber colluding with Force India, do you suppose?

No way in hell was Perez going to slow down. In fact after he went of course he continued to push besting sector times to the end. He simply was pushing and lost it. It happens. I have a problem with Sauber. They should never tell a driver to be careful when so close to chasing down a driver. Also they should have radioed Perez to follow Alonso in to the pits. Perez had the faster car. If he came in with Alonso, I am sure Perez would have won that race.
