Well said Fernando!
I completely agree with you. All the important to you are Ferrari's members, your family and friends and your fans. As your fan I think that I can say that all we are very satisfied by your performance this year. I know in this site posts many Vettel's fan but really I don't care what they say, they are all "blind and liars", and I say this because the truth is relative itself. We will see which driver will be chosen by the team principals as the best of the season. He will be the real champion of F1 2012.

yeah Biergarten is the word

Just imagine what happens if Vettel wins again next year by an even slighter margin to Fernandel. By countback maybe, having one more third place than the spanish gladiator. That would be sooooooo mean. LOL The meltdown would be epic.

I'm amazed no one has mentioned that Senna and Schumacher would of also pushed for this investigation when they were at their prime especially if they had lost the championship by 3 points.

Ah yes Fernando Alonso speaks, He as we all know is the paragon of sporting fairness in F1....


Oh hang on...

Was it not for Alonso that Piquet was instructed to crash to influence a world championship?

Was it not Alonso who when being beaten on equal terms by Hamilton in his rookie year demanded that he be given preferential treatment despite a contract that clearly stated equal treatment & when he did not gain preferential treatment paid to end his contract.

Was it not also Alonso who was upset at the side of the grid he was on so pressured Ferrari to break Massa's gearbox seal to incur a penalty so Alonso would move to the side of the grid he wanted.

Maybe Alonshole should learn what it is to act fairly & by the rules before he accuses others of not doing so.
Remember the old phrase "People in glass houses should not throw stones"

I'm doing it again, defending someone I don't like....

I think it's only right for a sportsman or a team to 'seek clarification' on an issue of rules, even after the event. However, IMO the later the clarification is sought, and the more persistent and repeated the appeals, the less tasteful it is. Apart from drug-taking, no statute of limitations there.

I still think FA is the most tortured soul in Motorsport though - he now has LH embedded in one side of his brain and SV in the other

@Wolfy - Alonso is not always the most sporting but to be fair your examples are rather weak. The Crashgate incident was not for Alonso it was for Renault. The company was waivering on whether to continue in F1 or not. They desperately needed the win to keep the board of directers interested. Alonso was not the first of the two McLaren drivers to seek an advantage. Hamilton had asked for team orders to be used in Monaco so that he could get ahead of Alonso. If cutting the FIA seals on Massa's transmission was Alonso's idea then he is smarter than I thought. It was legal and it was strategy that was required to keep the title fight alive.

Give up Fernando you have been beaten. I am well into the senior citizen catagory and been a life long Ferrari supporter but I am seriously considering having a cerimonial burning of all my Ferrari items.
Ferrari desparately net a driver who can develop the car and as much as I love FM they do not have one.
