So what he said was untrue you say? Well, that is not a redeeming feature - even if it was to play politics. And I would not say it was clever when he knows that there is a chance that the radio feed can go public.
We also have a former F1 driver saying that he was behaving like a little kid in the stewards office. I agree that he is very good at playing the press and his fans like a fiddle. But ever so often things like this emerges that show his true colors. And they are immediately downplayed, dismissed and excused by his fans. I gotta hand it to the guy. He really got you by the balls ;)
When he spoke with BBC he was reffered to the first stint and he said nothing about the second stint. In the race edit, his radio message is after the SC, after they overtook Rosberg, so in the second stint . So how did he lie or was not very clever in the interview?
Secondly, are you trust in a man, who declare in press things that must remains within closed doors? Excuse me, but this things must remain private, even if you dislike a man as it is the case with this ex driver and Alonso.
You think we don't know that Alonso play politics, "he is a pain in the ass", he sees his own interest, he is doing almost everything to gather the team behind him, he wants to protect the image of his teammate in the press just for his own good, etc. Well that is Formula1, but you maybe don't know this. It appears that he understood this, when others didn't and they race in I don't know what rallies and trees ... And maybe that's why we are love him, because the guy is brilliant inside and outside the track.
