flip was asked by brundle, if he was happy with the decision. flip ended up smiling and said "there are very few drivers like me". he showed by his driving, that he thoroughly deserves his seat in ferrari, and put his knockers in their place. well done flip...one of the nicest drivers in f1!

That is what he gets paid the big bucks. HE is the number 2 driver and this is part of it. He is only there to support Alonso and do the best for the team. Shut up and put up. If he does not like it he has a choice, just like you and me. If he thinks he is better off somewhere else, let him go. The grass is allways greener! But maybe not as well paid?

don't try to sound as a naive,Fellipe.to win a race,in home land and in front of your fans alone, is indeed a help for your Boss or your team to spend the weekend happily or to walk home chin up at least.But helping someone else achieve personal goal is something I can never understand.
play it cool,man!

" I don't think many drivers would have done the same, but I am an honest person and will always do my utmost for my team."

as if you had a choice Filipe. Decision was made, you were informed.

“It was definitely a tough decision, but he took it with the same spirit he has always demonstrated, in that the interests of the team come before those of the individual."
As in, the interests of Alonso come before those of Massa. Massa has lifted his game a lot late in the season. If Massa is outscoring Alonso next year, will Alonso be expected to be the polite and helpful team mate?
