Hamilton Fumes At Alonso Tactics

Formula One

comment on the article

Well Hamilton now is disappointed with Alonso's tactics at the Belgium GP today.

He thinks that Alonso pushed him off the track when they fought for third place at the beginning of the GP. He said that Alonso swiped him and pushd him to the side of the track as wide as possible. Later he asked Alonso whether he thought it was fair, he said it was a fair manoeuvre, but a hard one too.

I still think secretly McLaren want Alonso to get th DC. Hamilton is an amazing driver on his way to his first DC, so why should Alonso get in the way? Mclaren seem to be on his side more that Hamilton's. I think that saying Alonso is getting blamed for everything is rubbish.

You cannot expect Alonso to give you the title, but he should play fairly like to anyone else. Thier rifts and rivalry is still about, so I think Alonso is worried Hamilton will take his beloved trophy away, so tactics come into destroyed each others races....

For Alonso that was a brilliant move. For Hamilton he feels it was harsh that he pushed him to the side.

He is making manoeuvres hard, but fair?.

Please share your thoughts...

Hello dudes.

My name is Juan, i am from Spain and i am living in Sao Paulo (Brazil), country who has a lot of support on F1.

Its nice to see in this forum there is not only "english fanatic kids" supporting LH cause he is just english, and i have to say brazilian press didnt say anything wrong about FA and his "hard moved" last race.
I think they support LH more, though smiley

I obviously support FA but, if i think he does anything wrong, i wont.

I,ll be around next races.

Cheers

I think that Alonso's move was pretty aggressive and had they connected or there been nowhere for Lewis to go then I think it would have stirred more memories of the Schumacher / Villeneuve incident in '97. I can't blame Lewis for being upset but he just needs to log it in the old greybox and learn by it. Fortunately Lewis didn't use the same level of aggression at the next corner. In short, it was aggressive and on the edge and, only just, OK. As far as the WDC is concerned I think Alonso has the experience and the edge to win it this year. Though Alonso is lucky that F1 is such a peculiar sport. In any other business I believe he would have been sacked for gross misconduct for his part in an affair that led to such a huge financial loss for the company. If Lewis still has the right equipment next year I think we will be in for another exiting battle and I think Lewis will be even stronger than he has been this season.

There are no constructors points at risk now so it seems the gloves are off. Nothing wrong with Alonso's tactics - just so long as he keeps doing the same!!

This makes me laugh, Alonso is great but not that great. Donīt be so naive to think the team was not aware of all this matter. If they got fined it was not because of Alonso.
On top of this, those mails were sent around 3 months before the findings of the Ferrari documents and no other mails were sent after those regarding that issue.

Some unsolicited advice........Lewis, in your car you're potentially one of the greats, but as for the mouth....button it!..................Ron, you too Button it, (not your mouth....the other car)

Even without constructors points in the equation, there is a very good reason why team mates shoudn't push each other off the track. If one of them doesn't yield they could take each other out the race. Kimi isn't far behind and it may cost the team the drivers title too. I think Ron and the sponsors would be more than a little pi**ed off if that happened.

Truly no one in the history of the sport whines as much as Alonso ! He is the complete antithesis of Schumacher, in that team play doesn't enter his vocabulary. I've never known such a self centred driver. This is not a comment on his driving skill, just his character......

I think Alonso is just a crying baby, yes he is a very good driver but he is still a child, he need to mature and take as such the fact that his partner in crime is much better than him. I believe that he started all these alegations to drive the team and his partner out of the competition. He just needs to suck it up, big time...Agree with FIA, he should have been fired.

Hamilton will be WC one day. However I feel that the tyre tread in Turkey will cost Hamilton this year. Those 4 points will make the difference.

After all the comments by Alonso and Dennis, I can not see Alonso coming back to the team next year. It is a shame that relations between owner and driver have gotten so bad. Hamilton has been groomed for years to become McLaren's #1 driver. No one thought that he would be this good this soon. It is going to be tough for Alonso to find a competitive team for next year. Maybe, he can return to Renault or consider joining Williams. I would have love to see him at Ferrari but Raikkonen has clearly established himself as a driver that could win them a world championship very soon.
