Rumors Of Alonso Brake Testing Hamilton…Sigh

12

Well it wouldn’t be a good race unless someone, I’m not naming names but Brundle and Blundell come to mind, has suggested that Fernando Alonso brake-checked Lewis Hamilton and that is why Lewis hit Fernando.

Folks, can we get past this Alonso and Hamilton debacle? Brake-checking is what DC did to Schumi at Spa in 1998, not what Fernando did to Lewis. Brake-checking is what Montoya did to Schumi in the tunnel at Monaco. Brake-checking is what Lewis did to Webber causing Vettel to get caught out and hit his teammate (ok, I throw that in there just to put some fuel on the fire. We all know that a restart is full of mind games…just kidding).

The two aforementioned gentlemen should know better than to immediately throw Alonso under the bus until they have had time to determine if the data proves Alonso actually brake-checked.

I was waiting for you to finally claim for the “perfect storm”. There has been a few words in Keith’s blog (about 85 posts at the moment…..). So I see you like nightmares, because you don’t know what the hell could come into this site…… Well, if the battle begins let’s make clear that we have all the weapons ready. It’s definitely clear after Symonds had made public the telemetry and after hearing what was to be said from McLaren camp that it was all fault on Hami’s side. So the question is What will be his well deserved penalty?… Read more »

I would have to say that Hamilton was just not the Hamilton we have grown to know…it’s ok for him to have a bad weekend (in many ways) and they desparate for a British World Champion British Press need to just relax for a weekend.

The Hamilton I saw today IS the Hamilton I’ve come to know… he only does well if things fall into line for him.

In his and the teams defense, they’ve made no allusions to being balked by Alonso today.

And for Hamilton brake checking Webber… he was doing it all race. he was blatantly trying to get Heidfeld to knock Alonso out.

I found this line in one of the reports after the race… “After the race, Renault technical boss Pat Symonds was keen to rubbish the brake test rumours by showing pundits a print-out of Alonso’s telemetry data.”
So, ITV are a bunch of biased reporters.. sounds a like like what we have in the states when it comes to political coverage…..

LOL. Nice one Lenny. Bias? What bias?

Today printed edition of Marca shows a photo of the printed telemetry of Alonso. No lifting the gas pedal (even though I would think it’s common to lift if you have wheelspin in this traction control banned era), progressive acceleration with no indents in the curve, and of course, not even a signal of touching the brakes…….. Now, the SuperHam heavy fans are claiming that he turned right just before the crash to block his beloved God. I’m sure they will find some article in the rules that could serve to throw the book at Fred’s head. But, in fact,… Read more »

Why hasn’t Anthony Hamilton chimed in on this matter? I can’t form my own opinion on anything F1 without knowing what AntHam thinks.

Informal pole:

When you hear the name “Fernando”, do you think of –
a) Alonso
:or:
b) The song from the ’70s Swedish super group ABBA

both wonky and nc wound me.

don’t you know it’s too soon after the death of ABBA’s drummer Ola to be making these jokes.

Hey Noddy, we’re 21st century adults and what we said was both legal and harmless.

Actually, I didn’t know about Ola. My thoughts and apologies go out to his family. NC will take the spanking. Always heard he likes stuff like that.

Sure NC likes that stuff. A lot more if Max Mosley is the one spanking him… ouch

I thought that was implied. I’ve known NC for over 25 years (back then he was known as either Positive Camber or General Timespan), and one thing I’ve learned is that you don’t get between NC and a spanking, by a naughty pseudo-Nazi or not.
