Alonso thinks he is some god that everyone must give way. raikkonen was clearly going to overtake him. look at the picture on the f1 official website. it clearly shows rraikonnen was wheel to wheel with alonso and was set to overtake him..
. he has done this before too. remember how he threw up on petrov. he expects everyone to give way . what a useless racer

Never mind son you will come back stronger for the next 5 races. Dont worry about it you still can win this WDC. You just need to qualify on the front row for the next 5 races

That's rubbish. Kimi had a right to be there. Alonso started on the wrong side of the track and moved across onto Kimi who was alongside- squeezing him off the track. He is such a hypocrite, always blowing up on the radio about other drivers not leaving room... I'm glad Vettel is going to win the championship!

Mathias gave him as much space as he could. Put it down to a first lap incident and move on. Shame he could not continue in the race though, it seems they had some proper racing pace in that car today.

What was Kimi supposed to do? Better question is... why were you squeezing Kimi so much when there was room on your right.

Look at the reply, Alonso veers left at the start and pretty much puts Kimi on the edge of the track right away.

Alonso you need to accept when you're in the wrong more compared to Kimi.

No different to how Rosberg defended in Bahrain and Vettel doing it to him in Monza though Alonso got his way with Vettel penalised. He's always the first to complain about not leaving room and being cut up. He should practice what he preaches and leave the driver alongside room, not push him onto the grass.

This is what you do
1. Push Kimi of the track
2. When Button closes on you cut infront of Kimi (even if you have space between yourself and Jenson)
3. Blame Kimi for not giving you room and lifting off when you are racing. (Goddam i hate those guys in front of Alonso for not lifting off and let him win, it a shame, real shame...)

I am actually annoyed by Alonso's comment, why on earth should Kimi lift off, Raikkonen was practically squeezed onto the grass by Alonso anyway, he is not the only one chasing title points! Silly comment by Alonso where Raikkonen clearly did nothing wrong.
