well said Alonso!

With all the rumours and internet footage it was only right for Ferrari to get clarification - or the arguments would have rumbled on and on.
If it had been the other way round - people like nasty above, would have been screaming for blood.

Wow Fernando. Those were quite nasty and selfish things to say. You lost the title fair and square. Vettel had his ups and downs. You had your ups and downs. Vettel came out on top.
You really shouldn't say all those selfish things.

Anyone in alonsos position would do the same thing. You are all saying that its immoral and that he is cheating the championship. If you feel that you lost on a questionable manevour you can and should challenge it. To say that you are disappointed in alonso for this is quite strange when vettel or any other driver would do the same.

The real disappointment for me is the tartiness of the fia. This overatake should have been reviewed immediately. To announce investigation four days after the event is ridiculous.

OMG will Alonso and Ferrari just shut up for once. They must have some great propaganda master teaching them all what to say. Everyone who speaks for the team uses the same phrases, words and gestures, someones spending a lot of time coaching them all. I am not a Ferrari hater but enough is enough......

You say Alonso was a cheat this year, but he (and Ferrari) didn't actually break any rules. Vettel on the other hand...

Anyone remember the numerous times Vettel overtook a car while off the track?

The FIA didn't see a problem with the move so didn't investigate it, they only investigated it when Alonso asked them to look at it. Also it's not just this time Alonso has been a little less than a sportsman, he has a long line of questionable incidents against his name, that''s why people don't like him. If he's good enough that's fine, if he uses others to cheat for him then that's not being a sportsman.

I love the way Alonso gets the blame put on everyone else with all the controversies that surround him.
The look on his face after the race said it all for me.
So far in your career you have managed to lose Mclaren a constructors title and drivers WC along with a $100m dollar fine. Get your Boss and team mate banned from the sport and now to cast a shadow over the championship.
You seem like a little spoilt child to me and you ought to grow up

Oh dear, the seven virtues of Bushido (samouri code) are:

Rectitude
Courage
Benevolence
Respect
Honesty
Honour
Loyalty

A samurai he ain't.

Actually that statement was spoken from an orifice that sounds similar to the 1st virtue :rolleyes:
