Oh yes and Hamilton is so innocent in all of this? I don't think so. Pure favouritism at work and it goes in Hamilton's direction - again.

Favouritism or otherwise, beat your team mate on track and not thru dirty trix. Alonso is unfortunately aiming to become world champion by any means necessary. Shame on you..Alonso

if the team guilty,all of team must be responsibel include Lewis because he is Mc Laren Team not Mc Donald ha ha ha , why they only penalties Alonso, why not both of them, this is unfair decision by FIA, so FIA have a golden son name Lewis Hamilton ha ha ha ha, Lewis should be ashame because in europe you help by mobile crane, second if the team guilty for spy Ferrari why not punish, may be because Lewis Hamilton, if you become F1 champion 2007, maybe not by clean and clear way,in my point of view, may ron denis set a trap on Alonso or any other political business in F1 , god bless you

Don't just put the blame on Grandad Ecclestone, Ron Dennis and god knows who else are also involved in this very contentious World Championship. They want their first black World Champion and will go to any lengths to secure it. Hamilton breaks the team orders, McLaren can't score any constructors points and Alonso gets slapped - uh yea that makes great sense. Talk about injustice.

Last Year when Alonso was fighting Schumacher the cheat. Eclestein could not bare his beloved Schumacher to lose the Championship so he let Ferrari get away with illegal Aero Mods and screwed Renault in Banning there Mas-Dampa System.

Back in 1999-2000 The Great Mika Hakkinen would have won the race however Schumacher decided to try and win the race and take his 10 second penalty after and got away with it because of Jew Boy Eclstein let his love off the hook. Have you ever heard of finishing a race then doing your 10 second penalty?

The Stewards, Bernie and Car Dealer Ron, they have all sort the Championship, and Alonso isn't following the script!!
Come on Alonso, win the race and scupper there plans especially Hamilton’s. Get your legal team to go over that contract, as I am sure Mclaren are bringing your name into disrepute with Team orders in Monaco, the Ferrari Gate “Spying”, guilty but no punishment!! Now, holding you up, so Hamilton gets the time to set additional laps, and favouritism. As Ferrari are waiting for you, the real deal, honourable and historic a real legend to be associated with.

Hamilton Ego Maniac - all the comments above yours are in favour of Alonso not Hamilton. Perhaps I have just misread your post - if so I apologise.

FA WILL MAINTAIN HIS POLE

hamilton skipped the team orders and McLaren blocked him with Alonso

the move between Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton in the classification for Hungary GP goes way to become one of the surrealistic episode in the history of the sport. After accusations against Fernando Alonso were spilled to block the English in a premeditaded form in boxes the FIA, pressed by the English press, opened an investigation around the maneuver of the Spaniard,and the result is that the fault is of... Lewis Hamilton! Ron Dennis has met with its two pilots and the Briton has admitted that he skipped the equipment orders. alonso went with more fuel to the track of Hungaroring to make a lap more than Hamilton. The team said that to the Briton up to six times to let pass the Spaniard, but for Hamilton that order entered by an ear and he left to him by the other, skipping the indications of his equipment. It was then when both arrived at boxes and the McLaren team decided to restrain to Hamilton telling to Fernando Alonso not to move and he did so.saying at the end of the training that had been a team decision.,

radio conversations demonstrate that everything has been motivated by the strategy of the equipment,and alonso has not done anything that has not ordered to him McLaren FIRST. and that the one that has skipped the internal regime has been Hamilton. The annoyance of Rum Dennis at the end of the qualification came motivated by the sensation from chaos that had let to their equipment when skipping the orders and by have had to block the English so that it fulfilled the strategy.

hi james nice to see u around, that was my post yesterday hours before the night of the long Knives the fia was preparing.

anyhow no suprise as people like us know how fia handles the business.

shame for lewis for his half win.im more proud for the hard worked and undeserved 4th place of alonso
and ive enjoyed cheering for kimi all race. at least kimi is a clean contender and thats why he has my respect.

Pricess see no talent in a given win.

but in fact this is not over and the fact is that alonso did what the team ordered. and get punished for doing it.

in my alonso image is beign hurt by the team.reason enough to break a contract.

maybe im going too far and maybe dennis is forcing the matter for tons of money involved.

anyhow lewis should be fined someway for disobeying team orders.

extract of team radio conversation between lewis and dennis

The 22-year-old from Stevenage exchanged angry words with Dennis as he returned to the pits, reportedly saying:“Don’t ever f****** do that to me again!” Dennis replied:“Don’t ever f****** speak to me like that again!” Hamilton delivered a final riposte:“Go f****** swivel!”

think this is not over yet lets see on monday

Mclaren again put orders on two hot headed drivers and again it backfired!! This time it was golden boy who went against them.

Hamilton in the pits behind Alonso wasn't Alonso's fault!! he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, Alonso was going to have the argument about those tires weather he was there or not. Mclaren knew how far down the road Hamilton was and should have had Alonso out of there.... the same as they have in every other qualifying session this year!! not Alonso's problem!! FIA should never have been involved!!!!

Hey guys... Let's try to forget our nationalities and try to think in an objective way: Fernando Alonso was punished with no reason, there wasn't any article in the rules that makes this punishable (anyway Im sure FIA will write something "stopping" your partner at boxes soon).

It seems that F.Alonso just asked about that old set of tires like Hamilton Ego maniac said, and thats why he left boxes a bit later, anyway he just got that new lap only 0,6 seconds before the Q3 was closed (so I dont he had all calculated).

He prolly knew that Hamilton wouldnt be able to get a new lap but... Hamilton started with all. The Team agreed before the Q3 that Alonso would make one more lap than Hamilton in order to use more fuel than Hamilton but... who was first at pit line? Hamilton! and he didnt let Alonso pass... Even Ron Dennis asked Hamilton to let him pass, but he ignored all his team.

I dont justify Alonso but... I think Hamilton should learn to play fairly, and he didnt deserve today's victory.

So Hamilton can do whatever he wants... cause Alonso will be punished. This is how it works. Its really sad but meh...

There is a lot of people that likes Alonso :), and let's see what happens till turkey's GP.

Cheers,
