Its widely reported as fact by the media.
"I bet" is hardly any evidence or fact that such blackmailing occurred. Maybe you can provide links to support your opinion?
"Mr Dennis did indeed telephone me on 5 August, the day of the Hungarian Grand Prix. He began by saying "we have never had this conversation", which I took to mean it was to be strictly confidential. He then told me that Fernando Alonso had just threatened to give damaging information to the Federation unless Mr Dennis gave him favourable treatment within the team. Mr Dennis said his response to Alonso was "go ahead and give it" and that he, Mr Dennis, was entirely relaxed as, he assured me, there was no such information to give.
Of course we now know that Alonso went ahead and gave it. After 9 months of using it! with emails in spanish to De La Rosa!
But since Alonso fans won't accept the blackmail aspect because it understandably puts Alonso in very bad light lets work backwards.
Why did Dennis phone Mosley and grass up his own team? Some of you obviously have a view that differs from the widely media reported version of events so lets hear its plausibility.
It's gotta be good cause there's no way you cut your own throat like Dennis did.
Just think for a moment what kind of "sportsman" Alonso is.
It is noted that Alonso also never refuted the blackmail aspect despite EVERY media stating the story in that manner.
