that's just one of the examples, more examples, car broken in bahrein, no dinners after victories, overpressure on tyres, allowing lewis to open a FIA investigation unpunished twice.., the problem was dennis
Lewis Hamilton - worse strategy in first 4 races, being told before season that he is only expected to work 1000 hours on simulator and be fit for each race (implicitly telling him that he is #2), very weird Nurburing car failure that almost lead to severe injury, McLaren protecting Alonso in front of FIA in Hungary, Alonso and Pedro using and not sharing Ferrari data with Hamilton probably with knowledge of at least some other ppl from McLaren, very weird tyre failure in Monza (i think), being left out on destroyed tyres in China, weird car problem in Brazil.
One can easily 'prove' that Hamilton was sabotaged throughout the season.
I don't think so, I think McLaren tried to do best job with both drivers though.
P.S. Thing with McLaren is that they obviously try to have both their drivers strong. Anyone remember Kimi/Montoya duo? McLaren were developing some parts specifically for Montoya, even though Ron and Montoya weren't best pals in the world. Anyone remembering 2008? McLaren did everything they could to accomodate HK to team as soon as possible and only when he proved that he is simply not on McLaren level did they turn him to #2. This season is no different. In fact, this season we even have some conspiracy theories in Lewis vs. Jenson thread suggesting that Lewis is being mistreated by McLaren. I think its all fanboy BS talk. What happened this season is that they tried to help integrate Jenson ASAP into team, and part of that was probably to give some more experienced ppl to work with him. This is the way things obviously go in McLaren - they'll try to take care of both drivers rather than favoring one. And this is what sometimes may be interpreted by some people as favoring 'other driver'. But point is - Alonso overreacted, it could be mentality difference - as we can see with Hamilton/Button even with all errors that Hamiltons side of garage / pit is making - Hamilton never ever even hinted that he is being mistreated by McLaren.
