"Alonso even walked over to Perez on the grid and shoot his rivals hand to show that there were no hard feeling"

Shoot his rivals hand?

Kimi wanted to punch him and Alonso shoots him in the hand :p

No doubt Alonso didn't deserve to lose the place to Perez, as he was just avoiding an almost certain accident from that kamikaze dive from Perez. However, complaining about Sutil is BS. It looked like he ran wide and Sutil made a perfect pass with no drama whatsoever. It appeared that Alonso was losing a bit of rear grip around that point in the race and he left the door wide open for Sutil.

Something wasn't quite right with the Ferrari this weekend somewhat of an under performance in comparison with Barcelona. I doubt Fernando would have got himself to many positions if the incident had not occurred anyway. Regardless, don't lose any sleep over it Fernando you'll live to fight another day. Canada I'm sure will be promising for the Ferrari.

Alonso said...As for what Sergio did, I don't have much to say, his approach reminds me of my own in 2008 and 2009, because when you are not fighting for the Championship, you can take more risks.

Yeah lets gang up against Perez week? just because both kimi and Alonso lost ground on Vettel... Alonso got mugged and Kimi defended aggressively against someone who want to pass aggressively... Alonso was mugged by Perez, sutil then Button

"Alonso did feel that Perez was pushing his luck with some of his moves"-
Well, that´s how you get to become a world champion, by pushing your luck and giving it all.
When you already are a Word champion, then you have a reputation to flash on others´ faces, so you become someone else.

I could remember Monaco 2010 Alonso made some aggressive moves past 3 or 4 cars coming out of the tunnel......... Then he has the got to moan about another driver

Teflonso got caught napping end of story. I like Perez he reminds me of Villenueve the dad. Never give up fighting spirit. Sure sometimes he can make a mock of a pass but at least he is going for it unlike the others just cruising to the finish satisfied with their track position. Did you all see how Perez still manage to stay in front of that pack despite the broken wing. He might have finished the race if it wasn't for debri on his brake ducts
