I think the same, we do not know what's going on in internal team dynamics. Ron's reaction was a "godfather" one when quali finished:
- He throws headphones
- Goes to ask for explanations to Alonso's pitsboard man (The one that has to find out what is the gap to make time space finding a clear lap) The poor man raised his hands.
- Then he wanted to talk with Fernando.
I do not like what I see in Macca. The team inside is even strange.
And we still do not know if the team was holding him up or not. Lollipop is not the whole story. The team radio is the key to know the truth.
Even in case that it was a deliberated tactic from Fernando, I think he is also a rebel inside an incredibly structured and rigid team. I think he feels asfixiated there.
We do not know if the pole was also fixed already and that was a reaction to prevent that.
