Feb 6, 2011 Full story: Crash 44

Now that jenson knows the team,he'll give Lewy even more headaches than he did last year in Oz ,China,Turkey,Monza etc...especially if tyre management is more important with the new Pirellis!Something that will suit Jenson much more than lewy! Hahaha

idont understand why yuo and lawrence seem to think pirellis will sute massa and button to drivers who are well documented to lets say go easy on there tyres with no tyre reg changes just a slight wider front theses guys will be in the same boat as o10 its not as if they can come in after 15 laps then loose 6 places filtering back in p have as did bridge constructed and catogorized the tyres the same soft med hard the only deferance to bridge will be oil,carbon rubber mix , which will determen the compounds by hoping and saying massa and jensons chances will be better suited isnt the case they are both gentle on tyres why is this it hasnt done them any favours if yuo look at the agresive style of lewis schumi alonso and vettle who eat tyres by the way 4 wdc named there its not the tyres and driver partnership its the car design v managment of tyre itall about the car design otherwise the tyre eaters wouldnt have won 11drivers titles between them turin sunnymat live ispoo

Fact: Alonso whinned for 1st place to be handed to him..(takes away from his so called god gifted abilities right? why not earn 1st place after all it is a race right??)
Fact: Alonso cried to Petrov at the end of the race for not letting him past for the WDC (takes away from his so called god gifted abilities yet again right? why not earn the WDC by fighting in that so called ferrari Alonso needed to own everyone?)
Fact: your in denial and you support a whinney baby that so far has only proven the only way to win is to whine or cheat..(singapore, mass damper)

so what do you call pleading to the pits to let your teamate let you pass? WHILE ITS ILLEGAL TO DO SO..

Answer: its a fact alonso requested to cheat and to show the world he is a "pretender" as he cant race for his position he has to fix a race in order to win.. hmm singapore really makes more sense now

Nelson Piquet Junior has admitted he has closed the door on Formula 1 and admits that Fernando Alonso was not involved in the planning of the ‘crashgate’ race fixing.

The Brazilian’s grand prix career ended in shame after one and a half seasons two years ago, after being ousted by Flavio Briatore and then triggering the 2008 Singapore GP ‘crashgate’ scandal.

When asked by O Estado de S.Paulo about his teammate, at the time, Alonso’s involvement in the crashgate scandal, Piquet concluded:“No. What happened was not his fault.”

Not that this is the first time Piquet exonerates Alonso from anything related to Singapore, or that haters will pay any attention to Piquet's words (after all, they know much better than the driver that was directly involved in Crashgate, don't they?) ;-)

Your facts are related to emotions ..human emotions and it can also be called temporary ...but the real issues related to the EVIL Alonso are not proven ... blackmail, conspiracy, singapore.

The only way Alonso wins is with his talent ...proven talent acknowledge even by his peers and managers .. but not for you ...haters !!!

yes of course Germany 2010 was pure talent, winning in 2006 with an illegal car was pure talent, sitting in the pit box in 2007 was pure talent, and Singapore was pure talent ... ha ha ha what a joke ... I don't think anyone else can say "this is ridiculous" with such talent ... you idiot ... Massdampergate, spygate, crashgate, sabotagegate, ridiculousgate ... all with his name on it ... you keep living in the clouds Argie, but in reality your boy's a lying cheating heap of shite ... and you know it ... you're just too cowardly to admit it ..

alright lets say Alonso knew nothing.. the FACT EVERYONE IS MISSING ist is HE TOOK CREDIT for a fixed win. Remember when Schumacher didnt want credit for handing Rubens a win and thru him to 1st place on the podieum? Weres the shame?? oh yea.. no shame...

He took credit for a illegal mass damper on a car that pretty much gave him a HUGE grip advantage that won him the WDC 2 times. How many races did he win without the advnatage? You can give credit there. NOW THAT HE WAS RACING IN A FAIR AND LEGAL CAR LIKE ALL REST OF THE DRIVERS ON THE GRID. Micheal and other drivers drove off their talent to fight. unlike alonso that used a illagal part to produce results..

lets just take away the hamilton "fixing" saga. even though its a FACT Alonso had information on stolen ferrari docs.. dont believe me? look up the court documents that show and even have alonso in his own words admitting to having STOLEN ferrari docs.. this is called cheating folks..

Alonso whinned to his pit wall to let massa gift him 1st. But HE WAS IN A FERRARI AND HES THE GREASTEST DRIVER ON THE GRID RIGHT??? so mr alonso SHOW IT FOR ONCE..

Alonso couldnt get past a rookie even if it meant a WDC IN A FERRARI.. again.. SHOW YOUR "TALENT" FOR ONCE!!!! YOUR IN A FERRARI WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED?

these are not opinions these are TRUE facts.. why do you "alonso fans" support a driver that you fans know he needed these things in place to produce results?

drivers like senna (r.i.p.), schumacher, vettel, button, hamilton, massa and the list goes on DONT NEED TO FIX A RACE OR INSTALL A ILLEGAL PART to have a win or produce records! So why do you guys deny and support a driver that clearly needs to cheat or fix a race to win?

- remember i WAS an alonso fan untill all this clicked.. again these are facts every alonso fan clearly denies! i just dont understand why!!!

Monty proven talent? You are correct there..LEADING up to F1 yea..Alonso showed his talent and proved his worth to race in F1. Bravo!:)

but look at these facts.. no emotion here look it up of you must. infact i insist you do. PLEASE LOOK IT UP. you cant deny this man! these are true facts!

The only thing i ask is why do you support Alonso knowing the following facts:

- He raced with suspension deemed illigal in F1 (cheating)
- He had private Ferrari technical documents. why? who knows, hes a driver! point is he had it.(cheating)
- His team gifted him singapore in the biggest scandal F1 has ever seen.(cheating - maybe not willingly but HIS TEAM cheated for him)
- Requested to Let Massa past in order to win a race (at the time this was cheating)
