Alonso has always come off to me as cocky and arogant.. he may have talent but against his rookie teammate he just can measure up without cheating.. poo on him, if you are getting beat, take it like a man, and try harder not cheat. i mean com'on alonso, i dont like you, but what you are doing now is just an outrage, i would probably piss off alonso fans but i think that this is just stupid, and he should be thrown out of the sport. he knew about those documents, and did nothing, he blocks hamliton in the pits, he drives like an terd, he probably messed with hamlitons car when he crashed a few races ago. his behavior is just inappropriate for a person in his stature and postion in motorsports. its like micheal vick of F1
ok im done venting

The problem is that Prost, Senna, and Lauda kept their rivalry focused on racing, not industrial espionage. In fact, if Senna were around to get out of the car and crack a few heads -- after all, he punched Eddie Irvine in the good old days -- the whole affair could have ended much less expensively for everyone involved, and Ferrari would probably have to actually race people for the maker's title.
Massa does not share his late compatriot's diplomatic skills and temperament (I'm not touching driving skills, nobody shares those). Now that I think of it, another Brazilian, Piquet, assaulted someone for being cut off during a GP way back when. Nowadays everyone's got a press agent and a dozen lawyers. Shame in many ways. All the snooping around and hiding in A/Ced trailers and cryptic statements to the authorities and press have not helped anyone, and maybe, ironically, a good old fashioned knock-down drag-out brawl would be better to watch.

Sounds like they will not appeal the $100,000,000 decision.
At least they didn't go ahead with the penalty on Hamilton - that would have been the undoing for this season for me. After last week's drive I am really starting to like him.
