come on, if there is a cry baby in the grid that surely is alonso. can any telemetry or anything of sort prove he could be on pole. sure as hell it was vettel's pole so he should by all means have it.

i think that this is ferdi just playing mind games. vettel kept well over to the outside. vergne kept to the inside and was penalised. so, had vettel pulled over to the inside, ferdi would still have complained.

brundle etc had said well before this incident, that the chicane was a serious problem.

it looks perfectly calculated from Vettel, he should have gone slower on the inside and let Alonso take the corner instead he make him brake early and take a sharper turn, not very nice!
