Can he get any more lame in his defence?

Where were the Renault guys watching the system performance from?
Its his, Neweys, and respective race engineers job to keep a tab on the running.

He clearly doesnt want to accept that this was done on purpose and that RBR are clearly desperate for pole.
Their faces during closing stages say it all. They are damn nervous about the reliability of the car and stupidity of their driver.

Pushing to get a fastest lap in the closing stages of race.

They shortfueled seb because they were threatened by Hamilton's speed around here, they miscalculated and tried to blame it on an engine problem and got caught, effectively giving the upper hand to Fernando Alonso.

Is it not time that the FIA looked at all F1 engines fuel consumption figures and then select the figures from the worst engine and from that calculate the amount of fuel required to run the race flat out then make it mandatory for all teams to start with X kilos of fuel on-board.
I want to see cars racing not going on a economy drive all year hear now are drivers being told to save fuel that can't be right

Gosh, I can't understand it. I really can't understand it. I mean, we are a multi-billion $ team and we won last 2 world championships and we just can't understand this. Renault said we had a problem and we had to stop, so we stopped. I don't know whether there was enough fuel left (sounds like Renault, like their alternators, don't really tell people things like that - seems to be a French thing, like AF447) so I really don't understand it. So I don't really understand why that happened.
