Amazing! They did it again! It wasn't enought that Alonso had to start 5th. They had to find some way to penalize him.
I feel this is completelly unfair. After having to fight back after the puncture and having lost some rear bodywork he was clearly not blocking Massa. He was just struggling to make it through the finish line before the checker to be able to score a good lap time and did it by just two seconds.
Clearly Bernie needs the championship to be decided in the last race. And if the biggest driver of all time wins that'll be the icing on the cake. But Schumi shouldn't need all this constant help.
It's too much!
Just for a second please imagine, if it had been Michael Schumacher holding up Alonso, and not Alonso holding up Massa... Now please all you people biazed by the UK media give me your honest answer - wouldnt you have said that Schumacher was rightly punished ? Renault/Alonso would've wanted him to go to the back of the grid. and surely Schumacher would have been punished (like he got punished at Monaco).
Then again another example, lets imagine if it was Alonso parking the car in Monaco and not Schumacher. Alonso gets punished and starts at the back of the grid. - Now, tell me wouldnt you have said this sport is corrupted ??
Just reverse both situations and think deeply about it, then you`ll realize that many opinions on this topic are biazed by ITV crew.
Schumacher tries to cheat in Monaco - he gets punished.
Schumacher overtakes during qualifing under a yellow flag in Hungary - he gets punished for that.
Why is it so surprising that Alonso gets punished for holding up Massa?
Are you people weare that Massa set the fastest 1st sector time, only for Alonso to screw up Massa`s best effort?
Alonso was 100 meters ahead and there`s no way he could have affected Massa`s final lap time - Do you people have a clue to what 100 meters at 270kmh mean ???

more RUBBISH !!!! you are so pro ferrari it is revolting ,there is no way he was held up he was that far ahead of massa it could have been any car,just another ferrari moan and yet after the race the stewards say they got it wrong after all funny that !!! pay attention to what the commentators and drivers say about it as they know better than you !!
First of all - I think F1 is now being ridicoulous with the new regs on engine freeze, engine for two races, only 7 sets of tyre per weekend etc...
And now to Alonso Vs Schumacher
Alonso - great new young talent Vs Schumacher - experienced - 6 world titles skill driver - I mean when schumacher first came out and start to win races - he wasn;t punished as much as this - surely if Max Mosely wants to help out Schumacher - he might as well say - well tough luck alonso - all races are cancelled and that schumacher has won all races - it's simple - schumacher and alonso both have skill and talent - why not just let them battle it out themselves- rather than serving winnings on dish for schumacher - this is a scandal and favouritism have been involved too. The monza stewards being Ferari fans would have obviously dished out something against alonso and renault anyway but it would simply be a measure of how much and when -All I will say is
'F1 use to be great then but now? it's more like watching govermnent politics on wheels along with a serving of daylight robbery of our hard earned cash and providing us with cheapskate racing entertainment on a sunday afternoon'
Bernie DESPISES Alonso. Just a few weeks ago in an interview BE stated that it's terrible to have a World Champion who "only gives one interview" per weekend. He hates Fernando so he's going to have him penalized right out of a second title.
Alonso is right, this isn't a sport. It's WWF on wheels and a track, because that is just as scripted.
If F1 doesn't want any potential blocking, then qualifying should be only ONE car on the track at a time. Anything else is a set up.
Grow up F1! Love him, hate him, but let him have his fair shot! If he loses, let it be HIS fault or because Schumacher is naturally the more skilled driver!
Even with a faster car and driving in their home circuit, Ferrari is afraid of Alonso. And no wonder; race after race he is showing them what it takes to be a REAL world champion.
Ferrari tried to fool the judges in Monaco and failed. Here in Monza, the apparently succeeded... : (
