This is the kind of stuff that I think betrays Lewis’s better sense. If there were any doubt as to whether Alonso was right or wrong in his assertion that McLaren were indeed favoring Lewis, this just adds to it.
I am all for Lewis and his terrific season/career but this type of stuff is really nonsensical and actually makes me think Fernando is probably correct in his assessment of the team. It almost excuses his alleged blackmail of Ron with the emails concerning the Ferrari data possessed by Mike Coughlan. Lewis may still be the darling of the UK but I am finding it more difficult each week to like this young man when he continues making comments such as these.
Perhaps Fernando will consider an equal status at Ferrari with Kimi just to see he and the Finn hand McLaren their backsides next year. The espionage, odd Stage-Mom performances by Anthony Hamilton, Ron’s lukewarm support of Fernando are all adding up to a very big negative for me with McLaren. It is a shame really as I am sure the other 800 employees are not like this. Come on Mario, let’s get Nick and Robert up there next year so F1 fans can have a team unblemished by egos, politics, espionage and historical maxims to cheer for.
