    I officially don't like Alonso now.. If this is true..
    Hear say is that he went to Ron Dennis (CEO)..and told him he would let the FIA know that there was more to the story than was once thaught and that he had e-mails to prove it... Unless Ron either declaired Fenando the teams principal driver, or suspended Luis Hamilton for the remainder of the year for the fiasco in Hungary, in which Hamilton did not come in for his schedualed pit but opted to stay out an extra lap in qualifying, thus ruining Alonso's pit strategy.. SO ALonso retaliated by holding Hamilton up in the pits for over 10 seconds thus making it so Hamilton could not squeeze in his final lap for pole giving Alonso the pole...
    However stewards decided what Alonso did was (Unsportsmanlike) and gave him a "grid penalty" and putting him back 6 places giving Hamilton the pole..
    ALonso has accused McLaren of favoritism for Hamilton...
    Most of the ppl. in formula one unfortunately are VERY SPOILED BRATS!!
    But is is still the best technology in the world out there...

    BTW... For those that think 100 million dollars would destroy McLaren's bottom line..
    The fine will actually turn out to be more along the lines of 50 million after the $$$ from this years revenue is calculated..
    They have an annual income of 400-450 million dollars.. Not quite a drop in the bucket for them but not going to cause them to go bankrupt either..
    Also interesting to note that the FIA has warned the McLaren garage that it is under EXTREEME scrutiny and that ANY work of ill will or sabotage towards Fernando Alonso will come with extreeme punishment...
    Very interesting to see the last 2 races were Alonso did not do the typical "Squeeze" into the pit wall at the end of the race to aknowledge the team along the pit wall but instead went to the opposite side of the track were they were standing..
    As well he did not spray his team with champagne following the races.. Amazing what you can tell by body language.. Sometimes you don't need words..
    I guess he will be re united with Flavio next season..

    I never liked Alonso. Just like you said a lot of them, expecially him are spoiled and want it all for themselves. It wouldnt suprise me at all that the team favors Hamilton. Thats why i like Kimi, Hes a very neutral guy that likes to party and have a good time.

    Yeah im sure the Fine didnt put a huge divit in their bank accounts but look at it this way

    New England fined 750,000 thousand for spying

    Mclaren fined 100 million for spying

    Just shows how much money is involved in this sport....
