Indeed, as much as I dislike Alonso, Lewis started it by being a censored first.

Unfortunately for Fernando, his being a censored was illegal, Lewis' was not. The team may internally deal with Lewis I suspect. For instance, I suspect Alonso will be getting sent out first at circuits with the "extra lap" characteristic in future.

And this made me suspicious. As in "made up by a mid-30s journo trying to sound 21" suspicious.

Scottish? Who, Lewis?

Nah I think you're mixing him up with David Coulthard or Dario Franchitti. Lewis is English.

I think Alonso will retain his title. He's been a bit of a whiney beeyatch this season, but he's usually okay and a great driver. It would be nice to have a British world champ again, and I'm sure Lewis will win it one day, but I think Alonso will rediscover his game and win it this season

I've just had to look her up to see who she is. It appears she sits on a horse while it wins events, then she gets the medal...

Lewis is very consistant. This will be enough to win him the title this year.

Also no one at Mclaren would ever admitt it but i bet they can and will give Lewis some kind of advantage if required.

Also if Hamilton had held up Alonso in the pits would Ron Dennis have hit the roof so hard.?

Yes in horse racing, it's down to who can hit their horse hardest with the crop?

some you can hit , some you can't

Being a jockey on a race-horse is a bit like riding a motorbike at 40mph ,which could go out of control at any moment - one wrong move and you could be flying through the air , with only a helmet to protect you - and of course if you fal off , there's the rest of the pack ready to run you over
