Good points, but again I don't see them as related. I think the derogatory comments come from remembrances of a very bitter feud between Alonso and Hamilton, to the point that Alonso negotiated his way out of his contract and left.
Now he says he never had any problem with Hamilton, it was the management. That's hard to believe for those of us paying attention during those times. Sure, his disenchantment came from management's actions but also from his soured relationship with Hamilton.
As far as ignoring the follies of McLaren's performance this year, maybe so. But let's face it, this is a partisan crowd (being Benz enthusiasts.) However, here is my exact quote from the race wrap-up yesterday:
"Great drive by Alonso in front of the home crowd, loved that last lap pass on the outside. McLaren was lost in the sauce."
By the way, thanks for participating in the forum. I appreciate your perspective.
