Alonso had the audacity to claim that he was "happy to help the FIA clear up the spygate scandal". That shows a total lack of respect if you ask me. To everyone that was hit hard by it. Not only was he heavily involved. He was also summoned to explain himself. But he is trying to make it sound like he was some kind of heroic whistleblower that cleared things up. When in fact he was one of the perpetrators. I gotta hand it to him. Its a clever choice of words and he may fool a lot of people with it. But not me.
Yeah, the guy was a real bold He should have said "I didn't want to cooperate. I did it because they force me to"... And then he will be called a chicken or a liar or whatever people think is a "clever choice of words".
Dude, when you don't like someone, you are always going to listen to what he says with your rear, so no matter what it is, it will always give you a funny smell.
He was heavily involved... Yeah, nice "choice of words". It looks like he was the mastermind behind the whole thing. He basically requested Ron Dennis to use the Ferrari specs, or else...
What whistleblower? Tell me exactly what would you do if the FIA asks you to testify in relation to some personal emails which prove your team, and YOU, were cheating... You would refuse, we all know, and then put a brave face to the whatever penalty the FIA consider proper. Or, if you were in your right mind, you may consider to clear yourself as much as possible from any involvement in the scandal. But I guess that is only a right that villains cannot enjoy.
The question is not if he should had testify or not (duh!), but how did the FIA got the emails? Did Alonso just hand it to them and say "hey dudes, look at me cheating!"?
