I'm a Kimi fan, the way they(ferrari) ousted him still hurts a lot, i hope Ferrari to struggle in the coming years. As for Alonso he is a great driver but as a person is to much politics and i think he met his opposite in Vettel who for a young age is very cunning and has a team which backs him to the end.

@subra
actually on the 07 championship incident, Alonso went on Spanish radio to say that "It would be a joke" and "it would end up burying the sport" if Hamilton was handed the world championship title via post-race disqualifications.

Alonso needed clarification. He couldn't let Newey pass under a possible yellow flag.

No....wait.

Subra, "Ferrari need to learn how to be gracious from Lulu" Are you f***ing serious?

This is the same Lulu that couldn't handle being out-qualified by his team mate so put all the teams telemetry on twitter in an attempt to prove it wasn't his fault, oh that was ever so gracious!

As for the rest of you whining about Ferrari, they asked for clarification, once they recieved the clarification they accepted it and took it no further. Where's the problem in that? Your acting as though they spent 3 years in court trying to overturn a decision.

ptolomy, i read article and saw no nasy comments. what comments you refer to?

minskies, fia no so tardy. the overtake that ferrari queried only came to light couple of days after race when someone posted very detialed video to youtube. video now deleted, but it showed three overtakes. it was the third one, new one, which ferrari query.

graham, fia didn't see problem with move because they did not know about it. once it was spotted they had a duty to investigate it whether or not ferrari asked. that is in the rulebook.

i see that gene has waded into the battle. claims that ferdi deserves the title as he was on the podium 13 times to sebs 10 times. what he did not say that seb was on the top step more!

@richard

He's a company man and a fellow Spaniard so he would say that I guess.

The wailing and gnashing of teeth at Ferrari is of biblical proportions. Build a better car if you want to win the WDC, whinging like a Z list celebrity on reality TV doesn't cut it.

“Frankly, I'm not that interested in what the opinion is of me in Germany or elsewhere,” he claimed, “What I know is that people who see me in the streets hug me and call me 'gladiator' or 'samurai'. What matters to me are the 1200 people in the Ferrari family.”

If that doesn't say it all! 'Gladiator'....'Samurai' haaahahah...too frickin funny man!
