they are a weasel team using weasel tactics. racing is about who can build the fastest car and who can drive it the fastest... not who has the best lawyers or a team mate willing to screw your opponent for you so you can look better. red bull's integrity shames the other teams .

The Fia should deduct points from ferrari for this sham in Texas.

Is the rule book going to be re written yet again due to ferraris cold calculating way of "winning"?

it was legitimate.. its called racing strategy.. just like the tyre strategies.. they knew they couldnt win the constructors so they gave a shot in the dark for alonso and it paid off.. good result by massa as well..

dont understand what you guys are complaining about.. either u just hate alonso/ferrari or you dont know strategy..

Whatever peoples views on this, at the end of the day, Massa probably finished as high as he could have expected to. He had a good drive but he was not going to be allowed to finish in front of Alonso was he?

You guys need to seriously think before you speak. How did Ferrari cheat?
Do you recall last week what happened with redbull?
Does anyone wonder how a team like them got so fast from one race to another?
They were caught cheating before, they to would have done this if they had to and thought of it just as Carrey said. They probably have you just don't know it.......

Ferrari made the right call because FA still have slight chance of win wcd. F1, is a team sport and the driver do what the coach is telling to do simple as that. Regardind ferrari, please you guys dont lie to yourself redbull has done this season and mclaren would have done it if they were in the same position than ferrari. Typical english coments, always complaining about others forgetting what they have done it in the past.

It's going back towards the days when a number two driver, doing well in a race, would be told to pull in and hand his car over to the number one driver. Do we want to see that happening?
