Ray, Alonso wanted team orders and Ron said no, he did not favour Lewis he just wanted them to race fairly. Remember Indianapolis 2007 when Alonso asked Ron over the radio to have Lewis let him pass and at the end of the race you can here Hamilton's engineer saying " well done Lewis you have Ron to thank for that win because Alonso wanted you to let him pass but Ron said you have to race fairly"

The fact is Alonso had know idea what Ron had created at Mclaren and just took it bad when the f1 debutant took him on.

That has always been my argument that after 10 races Lewis was leading Alonso, so Ron had to to throw the rule book out regarding team orders and let them race

Not sure what F1 you have been watching or what ladies books you read your results in, But again Alonso and Lulu had the same points at the end of the season. After Ron Denis took all the support of McLaren F1 away from Alonso,after Hungary, and gave him all the apprentices to run his car. I would say that is pretty good, in consideration.

ITS CALLED COUNT BACK

The same Hungary Cry-baby tried to prevent Lewis going out for his last qualifying lap

Jenny been trying to tell the anti Hammi extremists why Lewis beat Alonso, for the reason you just mentioned, count back. But when it comes to Lewis and his 07 adventure some on here would rather talk about negatives than the main point, an f1 apprentice finishing above the man who put an end to the Schumi show.

I have said it before and i will say it again, there is no way a rookie should of been challenging a 2xwdc let alone beating him.

Sorry, where is Alonso in the WDC? I don't see any other driver being able to carry Ferrari like Alonso, its not just down to driving skill, he's a v shrewd operator. His ability to stay positive and stimulate the team when they are on the skids and also stay in favor with the tifosi is a feat in itself
