people are only pissed at Ferrari because they are not lying through their teeth about it. Lets face it, honesty doesnt sell, it never has and it never wont, you can only fault Montezemolo for being candid. Its obvious Red Bull shorted Webber's car once they cracked the code this year, you would have to be a ***** not to see change when it happened.

The irony is people are pissing about Ferrari for being honest or of having some sort of integrity, when people calling for the good ole days are really asking to be deceived and lied to, irony at its best if you ask me.

Horner and Newey openly admit that the technical rules are fair game to exploitation, and that success in F1 comes from "creative interpretations" and that it is best to first solicit FIA feedback as to whether the interpretation will pass scrutiny. some do, some do not.
Ferrari has chosen to "interpret" different rules, and they were within their rights to do so. However, as long as Red Bull is pushing the technical envelope and Ferrari is pushing only other rules, Red Bull will continue to dominate since Ferrari is in constant catch up mode.
Which I don't really mind because I quite dislike Luca who can never comment on anything without berating someone else. But I do feel for Fernando.

Ferrari is a great team and I pay tribute at how they interpreted rules in Austin. I respect the way Red Bull interpret the rules as well. It's not only that I don't see anything illegal in it. I think it is the way it should be. F1 is not simply a competition of drivers and cars, it's a competition of brains, of ability to develop race strategies and interpret rules. The only difference between Ferrari and Red Bull is that Ferrari do it openly, while Red Bull fool people by telling them fairy tales about Webber's "surprising" problems. People, don't be fools!

Alonso is a disgrace--Ferrari should have never signed him up, but guess Santander money rules...
Alonso is a crook and sadly his mere presence has been pervasive.
Old man Enzo is way too hallowed for LDM to be misquoting him

Glad that history books would never show Alonso as champion sullying the Red name

Alonso is arguably the best driver on current grid and Ferrari is lucky they have him. Otherwise they would have been happy to get rare podiums and would have forgotten the feeling of fighting for titles. Take it into account when you write something:)
