Alonso: Okay he hadn't actually passed Kubica and took advantage of cutting the corner. So I can understand the penalty - but it was a close decision.

DC is completely missing the point, if you overtake someone off track you have to give the position back immediately, what happened after is all his fault

How can you complain about Eddie Jordan, he is one of the few pundits in the whole of sport who has no fear about speaking his mind and asking difficult questions. You may not agree with him but he is something different and something that we don't get enough of. The man is brilliant for tv.

David Coulthard weighs in with a grain of truth when he says the stewards need to be more lenient when it comes to the odd ungraceful overtaking gesture. I don't mind either way about the Alonso call, but if the stewards are discouraging overtaking they're going to completely drain the soul out of the sport.

It reminds me of those hyperactive World Cup referees who hand out cards like confetti; it's not conductive to fair play and sometimes leads to favouratism, taking the fun out of it. I know it's a big money game but people have to be realistic... if you take away the edge, the drama and the thrills, eventually people will lose interest and suddenly it WON'T be a big money game a few years down the line.

Too many short-term decisions that could harm the long-term, as I see it just by looking at the surface and what washes up in the supporting media.

Remember also that FA destroys his team-mates car, by barging into him after Massa passed him. What a team player he is. Just a selfish spoilt baby.

Yeah, I really like that Eddie Jordon just asks whatever he wants and puts people on the spot. Jake and DC tend to be diplomatic so Eddie brings something different.

Eddie makes it interesting, as he gives it but he also gets it as well as seen just now

Take it in jest!

EJ calls it the way it is, and the egos don't like it because they're used to placid questions and spinning out the usual guff excuses and rubbish. Go EJ!

EJ, ask him why he cracks in qualifying, cuz his buddy DC won't! Perhaps he can't take the pressure? Oh listen, JB is incredible, really? <laugh>

"Alonso must not talk to any british media... They want to hang him alive"

What absolute rubbish. Alonso is making far more problems for himself than anyone else can do for him.
