Sounds like you don't know what you are talking about, except for Alonso being selfish, you speak nonsense, not good sense. Falonso WAS champ, now and in '07 he was/is a competitor like ALL other drivers. No free rides! Calling LH fake. Bollocks! He is the REAL deal in case you haven't noticed! Tough times don't last, tough people do! Lewis has been a winner most of his sporting life. He demonstrated skill and talent and confidence to state to Ron Dennis that he would like to race for Macca one day and lo and behold he does it! Winners compete to win and only win, and will rule out any sandbagging so some whinging spoilsport can have an easy go! Alonso is a bitch!
Get real and maybe go and compete in something other than giving your opinion on what constitutes honorable behaviour. Where is the honor in running from a rookie who happens to be faster than you? Where is the honor in asking a team to sanction the rookie and then attempt to blackmail the team if they don't stoop as low as you? Alonso is so low, he could crawl under a snake with a top hat on! Talk about subversive behaviour! He's not just a bitch, he's a scandalous bitch! There is no honor left for THAT fake! Those were the actions of an ignoble and unhappy paper chump. When the going got tough, Falonso ran away like a chicken sh*t mofo! Team behaviour??? Oh yea, that's good teamwork. NOT! LOL
Falonso will be a footnote in the history that Lewis Hamilton will and has made as the BEST rookie EVER in the history of F1 to date! THAT is an HONOR that not even the haters can take away!
BTW...I see the phenomenal LH has also put the smack down on Schumacher and Kimi in Spain this week. Too bad for the paper chump FA. Renault was down in 7th and beyond. What a moron to have been so petulant and leave Macca when faced with REAL competition. Yea, that's the chumpion of chicken sh*t losers. An honor Falonso deserves!
sounds like to me that you need to take a valium, prozac and some weird fish poison to calm down a little bit. it also sound like you are either ron dennis' under the 'hamiton' father spell or really just incredibly rabid about lewis (which is kind of weird).
though, there may not be much similarity...yes,i was a competitive cyclist in my younger years (did you ever compete anything on a high level btw?). as a domestique, i had definite team orders to support the leader, to give him whatever it takes to win the race. i really do not see any difference in formula 1 racing where there are two team cars. one great driver and one support driver. this is what it seems like to me.
as i can best recall the last race (perhaps), massa took great (supposed) team orders to slow down 'just' enough when coming out of the pits (and not make it so obvious to the race marshalls) to sneak behind kimi, so that kimi could get the points to win the championship. i knew it was going to happen, the commentators knew it was going to happen and the friends that i wake up at 4:30 am to watch the live feed knew it was going to happen. 'team' player. yes, i read that massa will give kimi a run for his money this year...but i am doubtful of that. massa is as incredible team player.
one thing that made me wonder about hamilton's intentions was during the press conference after qualifying (forget which race) in where alonso stopped in the pits what seemed longer than normal (hamilton in the back of him...stacking), alonso then takes off and hamiton loses pole because of the delay. when asked, alonso said he was receiving team orders to hold in the pits. hamilton made an incredibly HUGE display of leaning over to alonso to say 'yeah, what was that?' via body language. i didnt hear anything in f1 news about alonso going against team orders about that one (maybe i missed it) yet the marshalls decided to play team referee and penalize alonso. when did marshalls have jurisdiction about team strategy?
when hamilton was asked how much he lost pole by, he replied something like 'by the amount of time i was delayed in the pits'. boy, that is a guy full on board with the team. a real charmer.
where did i ever say that alonso deserves a free ride because he was the reigning world champ? no, i didnt. what was conveyed is that a world champ has earned respect as one who, well, is a world champion...esp the current one. one doesnt (i wouldnt anyway) disrespect the current world champion the way hamilton did. yes, a race is to be won by the best driver 'IN THEORY' but how many times have you seen team orders over rule the other driver for the 'team leader' to win? i dont know about you but i see almost every race.
'if' you decide to read a little about the sport you seem so passionate about...alonso is no longer with mercedes for one reason: hamilton does not want him on the team. wow, chalk another one up for those under the 'hamilton' spell. alonso is a cry baby? yeah, he is! i totally agree to that! but so is EVERY f1 driver out there. they are all prima donna's. they all complain and moan. that is what makes them great...because they love what they do.
as the 2008 season rolls out..i am going to be pretty enthus'ed on how mercedes will run when they supposedly have ridded their cars of ferrari technology.
