At the end of today's F1 Championship deciding race when Alonso could not pass the Renault powered Petrov, Alonso was seen to pull alongside Petrov after the race and shake his fist at Petrov from the cockpit for several seconds.

Did he want to discuss the ethics of team orders perhaps? ROFL

I agree entirely! And hats off to Vettel - the boy done good!

Thank you for that incidentally...I was already wondering whether I ought to start the topic... Smile

The right man won IMO. I'd have preferred Webber to get it this year but his poor quali performance put paid to that. Hamilton had too much to do (and required lots of problems for other drivers) so it should have been Seb. Poor lad didn't know whether to laugh or cry on his inlap, but he darned well deserved it.

BTW, as seen on another forum;

Codemasters have entered into the spirit of things and released a second patch for their coveted game "F1 2010". The patch adds a couple of settings for drivers of the Ferrari to allow them to throw items out of their cockpit as well as swear & gesticulate at passing drivers.

Ahem.....Lets not forget that Red Bull had allowed the drivers to swap at the line if Webber was to win the Title.

That said Vettel has had a great season and richly deserves the championship.

In Alonso's defence a show of frustration is more than acceptable given the adrenaline involved driving an F1 car.....and if anyone listened to him being interviewed later he said Petrov drove a very good raceWink

The hypocrisy of team orders was never better demonstrated PMSL

In other sports it's simply called "cheating" Wink

Alonso's threatening gestures/abuse towards Petrov are unnecessary and not acceptable - doesn't Alonso understand the rules or is he so used to Ferrari getting their own way that he thinks they don't apply to him? Grin

Glad Petrov was up for the race, well done to Vettel.

Alonso serves you right.

Mclaren please give Lewis and Jenson a car they deserve next session, am counting down the days until the first race of 2011 already.

I thought it was the right result on the day, but thought it was a shame that we didn't really get to see any wheel to wheel stuff between the main contenders. Webber sat behind Alonso for half the race with hardly a challenge, and the Renaults put paid to any chance Lewis had of mixing it with Vettel (which was a shame, but both Renault drivers drove superbly defensive races).

Yes Alonso was frustrated, but his first reaction was to blame somebody who had done nothing wrong, had not blocked him off or caused an accident, just driven well enough to prevent Alonso overtaking. That says a lot about Alonso.

The fact that later he 'admitted' that Petrov had driven well says more about his advisors than about him.

Dont forget Alonso was the sh1thead who squelled to the FAI when he couldn't get his own way with Maclaren. Would you want to work with a guy like that? Totally untrustworthy!
