    Will McClaren favour Hamilton this weekend

    I read with some interest how Alonso feels he will not be given a fair crack at GB GP. I know we all have our favourites but do you honestly think the team would favour one driver leading into a race? I think they would only do this as a race panned out surely...!!!!

    • I think Fernando and Lewis will be put in the same conditions by their team, MCL normally don't establish a "first driver" and it will be the same in this Silverston Gp. Obviously Hamilton's victory could be considered in a different way...
      So, Alonso will be hard to beat... the spanish can't suffer gearbox failure every race!

      • I agree with Vito, McLaren (as in Bruce McLaren the 60s F1 ace, and not Steve McClaren the England football coach - take a closer look at the title, you'll get it) don't favour one driver more than the other in terms of actual material support, and they won't put team orders in place.
        However, they'd absolutely love to see Hamilton win in Britain (wouldn't we all? :D). The question is mainly posed because Alonso is quite like Schumacher: he likes having a number 1 and a number 2 in the team, with himself at number 1 of course. The trick is, he's currently a clear number 2. He should at least be thankful that McLaren won't stop him if he wants to race his team-mate for the title.
