DavidH64, I think that is a little harsh after last weekend and watching Rosberg and Shumie come to that last year, so he is not top of the list for me, lol. He does have a point if you want to see wheel to wheel racing more like the past.

As to his comments of the racing aspect, you and I can agree, and yes Alonso was right too. My comment was in regards to the respect between drivers in the paddock and on the track. He should be the last to talk about respect as that applies.

DavidH64, I would say they are all as bad as one another, I think they have all behaved badly at some point, even Vettel on more than one occasion with showing the finger at a driver. They all get revenge on one another.

Gazz, we are not in disagreement. I thought it hysterical FA would make that comment about the drivers, when he is just as guilty. I can't think of any driver on the grid today that is not respectful.

DavidH64, I know, I was just trying to be fair but the fight has changed within F1 these days, and I couldn't disagree with your post lol.

The statement was hypocritical because he excluded himself from those who have no respect.

He probably just vented out to Rosberg but why drag up things from 30 years and include his current contenders in it when he could have just mentioned Rosberg. Or included himself.

If you're referring to Rosberg making a defensive move against Alonso, then watch the slo-frame. The stewards were right in not penalizing Nico. Clearly Alonso was behind Rosberg when FA tried to pass and NR blocked. It was excellent driving by Nico. Personally I was impressed with Nico that race.

Rosberg did nothing wrong, it was Alonso who in his mind thought he acted wrongly. Alonso couldn't let it go and most probably directed his words at Rosberg, just like he did on Twitter too. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YAt-1pqbYDo/T5b4Gkl...

It was excellent racing from Nico, he is not a pushover anymore and has showed that he has talent in races.

Cite the regulation that there must be one car length space when making a defensive move off the drive line. You are full of bullshit! LMAO! One car length space when blocking?!!? ROFLMAO! That is the funniest shit I have ever heard. You don't know shit about F1 do you Skippy?

I'll help you with your homework, it is in Section 16, "Driving Protocol and Penalties", of the Sporting Regulations. When you find this "one car length space when blocking" regulation please let us know.

20.3
More than one change of direction to defend a position is not permitted. Any driver moving back towards the racing line, having earlier defended his position off&#8208;line, should leave at least one car width between his own car and the edge of the track on the approach to the corner.

A) MORE THAN ONE. Rosberg was making his FIRST MOVE.
B) CAR WIDTH, not "length"
C) Alonso was BEHIND Rosberg, when he went off drive line. Rule does not apply. Stewards ruling was correct. If Alonso were along side Rosberg when he made the move then Nico should be penalized. But Alonso pulled up along side going off track when Nico had nearly completed the move and driving along the edge. I bet if Alonso and Rosberg collided, Fernando would have been penalized.
D) Rosberg and Alonso were far from the upcoming corner when the incident occurred.
E) Hamilton passing while off the track cancels Rosberg pushing him off. The stewards ruled that correctly.

I sure hope that settles that. If you disagree with the stewards then it is your OPINION, not a fact. They see more, speak with drivers, far more than you or I get from FOX/SKY Sports, etc media.

Watch it frame by frame. At no time was FA ever along side, he is behind NR the entire time. See how NR is moving to the right, guiding FA so he knows the move NR is making. FA does not have the power to overtake. It is a legal block. FA has to break it off.

Ok, I agree with you now...and the stewards. Rosberg was defending (on his allowed move) and not returning to the racing line. Alonso and Lewis were wrong and I used a rule that doesn't apply in this case.

Nevertheless

1. I knew something about a rule where a driver had to leave "space" and it was not just me being full of shit or being a funny shit. I was wrong ...but just that !

2. I have to keep improving my English so I will not confuse width with length as I know the difference in Spanish.

3. You did the homework, thanks

Alonso can use his hand (showing his usual hand sings when he thinks he has been mistreated) for his own fun time late n lonely hotel nights it's only good for that.
