I'm a fan of Button, Rosberg and a bit of Sutil. I like most drivers though. Not Alonso and Maldonado though.
Ah OK, I suspected someone from the Vettel/Schumacher fanbase, sorry.
Well anyway, from your favourite drivers it's Rosberg who I think is underrated and is, maybe not only probably, the best German driver.
Yeah, I agree to an extent, but Hamilton didn't act like that, for example. And the poignant issue is that Alonso behaves like that EVEN when his team mate isn't competitive. Piquet? Massa? I'm sorry but those drivers aren't good enough (in comparison to Alonso) to justify his bitchiness. Though, again, I do agree with you, up to a point.
Yeah OK, you have some kind of a point with Piquet and Massa.
Regarding Piquet, you have to keep in mind that Alonso was quite a favourite for the win in Singapur 2008. As far as I remember, he was about to achieve a good qualifiying time when he faced technical issues with his car. OK, that probably doesn't justify the measures which were taken in the race. But he was about to achieve maybe a sensational win by having a good qualifiying position in a very bad car. After that aim was destroyed, oh well...
And regarding Massa, you have to keep in mind that Alonso was indeed faster in Hockenheim 2010 and the championship was about to slip away (and I mean really was about to slip away) and Massa was already not in a competitive position in the WDC standings. Key point is Alonso was faster and the championship standings demanded for the teamorder. After he said "this is ridiculous", Massa couldn't pull away from him (as e.g. Webber did after Vettel said "Mark is too slow, get him out of the way"). He was faster than Massa who happened not to be blocked by Vettel as brutally as Vettel did with Alonso at the start. So Alonso fell behind Massa.
Apart from that, I didn't hear Alonso complaining when the WDC standings were even and he had to stay behind Massa in Melbourne 2010 or Istanbul 2010.
For example, I loath the teamorder in Austria 2002, but even, as a not die-hard fan of Schumacher (to put it mildly), I can see the urgency from Ferrari to do teamorders in Austria 1998...
People have to be objective and differentiate between teamorders and teamorders.
Yeah, I agree to an extent, but Hamilton didn't act like that, for example.
Although I am a die-hard Alonso- and Hamilton-fan, he kinda did in Monaco 2007. He said something between the lines like, "What can I do? In the end, I am the driver with the "2" on the car." That was kinda unfair. The team was playing safe in Monaco and the probability of getting past without creating a nuclear situation in the race (i.e. both drivers out) was very little for Hamilton on a track like Monaco with a driver like Alonso having the same material driving infront of him...
