F1 » Alonso ‘an indecipherable character’ – Costa


ProfessorX: maybe it has something to do with threatening to blackmail (@ Macca) or something like that. Alonso is good, but hes been well taken care of during most of his career. Guaranteed Kimi would give him a run for his money if Kimi's car wasn't breaking down or Ferrari actually gave 2 cents about helping Kimi setup the car, etc... You can say Alonso is a great all you want, and while he is at least an outstanding quality driver, it might in fact be his own desire to be the #1 on his team that is his true weakness, and the reason why Ferrari can not evolve like Mercedes have (last year). I would also say, that Ferrari would be almost or close to at least as good if Alonso left the team. I am not saying Alonso is a fraud, but hes very much in the same vein as like one Valentino Rossi, who needs the team around him, who has had great success, but might not be all that.
I will take Costa's opinion over yours.

F1 » Ecclestone bribery trial ends with £60m settlement


fourteenseven:
Mark As distasteful as this is most of us have something that Bernie cannot buy, more days left above ground.
none of us know that four sure
You are correct, which is why I prefaced it with "most of us". Surely he will outlive some of us. And some of us may even trade a few years for some of his loot if possible. In any case all the money in the world will not prevent the inevitable.

F1 » Horner surprised by Mercedes stance


I am not sure that I would call it team orders. Mercedes was just trying to let both drivers implement their given strategies. They did not instruct them to finish in a specific order. Basically Lewis ignored the team's instructions so that he could hinder Nico's strategy thus preventing either of them from a shot at winning the race. Lewis cared more about beating Nico than about trying to win the race.
