F1 » F1: Fernando Alonso Q&A

RoyO: Is it just me that, when I first saw the photo that accompanies this piece, assumed that it was a photoshop job? Even now I look at it and find it hard to believe that the heads (particularly Alonso's) haven't been pasted onto a set-up shot. A truly bizarre pose.
Clearly Alonso is checking to see if Ron has a heart.... He's still checking.......

F1 » F1: Alonso returns to McLaren to emulate Senna

JBfanboy: . Senna revolutionized racing he was against Lauda, Prost, Mansell, Rosberg, Piquet, etc. and ALL noticed him. You fail to realize Schummacher raced against him for almost 2 years but I'm sure you don't know that. Senna was not perfect but if you were a racing driver you would know what Senna means!
The only way I can think that Senna revolutionised racing was in his willingness to crash into people when it suited him, prior to his era crashing intentionally or otherwise was avoided at all cost because of the risk involved. As others have said an extremely fast one lap driver with undoubted skill but he had a massive chip on his shoulder, was convinced that the World was conspiring against him and ultimately was a dangerous driver. In saying that I do rate him as one of the best and wish he was still with us.

F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues

Tesla: @hunterman - the language Lewis used to Ron over the radio was inexcusable Could you or someone refresh what was that language LH used over the radio? I couldn't able to retrieve from my mind.
He told his boss and long term benefactor to go f**king swivel. Not a very nice way to treat the chap who had financed every step of his career but I'm sure it would have been someone else's fault because Lulu is always innocent.

F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues

Come on Richard you should know by now that Lulu is always innocent... Crashes into Massa from behind - Massa's fault. Crashes into Button from behind - Button's fault. Lies to stewards to gain a podium - Dave Ryan's fault. Falls out with Alonso - Alonso's fault. Falls out with Rosberg - Rosberg's fault. Parks in China's smallest gravel trap - McLaren's fault. Tweets his teams telemetry - Twitters fault! He's just innocent, all the time man!!!

F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues

Taipan: No but they did "forget" to put air in his tyres during qualifying in Japan which forced the FiA into placing an observer in their garage in Brazil to ensure fair play.
I never heard about that Tai, what happened?
Sorry Weshie I was in a rush this morning it was the Chinese Gp not Japan. Alonso was sent out in final qualifying and his rear tyre pressures were all to pot (this was the race that Ron said we are racing (against) Fernando) the result was Alonso qualified 4th almost 3/4 of a second behind Lulu. The Spanish Motor Sport Federation petitioned the FiA with more than 100000 signatures to ensure fair play at Brazil, in response the FiA placed an independent observer in the McLaren garage during the Brazilian GP to ensure parity. All true, that'll be why the easily upset are disagreeing with it! :p

F1 » Retained Button ‘inspired’ by Prost

benignlyindifferent: I just read the transcript from the interview with JB. Clearly, the contract is for more than one year and likely has several interesting clauses that hopefully we learn more about in the coming weeks.
From what I've read Alonso's contract is for 3 years and Jenson's is for 2 years. I haven't heard any rumours about what each are being paid, that could make interesting reading.
