Alonso has never ever accepted equal treatment with a rookie or anyone else.Andres125sx wrote: ↑Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:26 pmJust in case you didn´t notice... Alonso accepted equal treatment with a rookie despite being the current WDC. The rotation on the best strategy between the two drivers in first half of the season is an unquestionable evidence, even if some people tend to ignore this fact.NathanOlder wrote: ↑Wed Nov 28, 2018 11:11 amExactly, 'Give me number 1 status and an easy run to the title, or I tell the FIA about some secrets'
Ron did the right thing, won the title the following year and Fernando went his own way.
Then we could argue about if a team spying a competitor is responsibility of one of the drivers, but I find it a bit absurd so you can continue blaming the messenger if you will
It was that Lewis measured himself against Alonso, particularly after overtaking Alonso on track in his very first F1 race, only for McLaren to switch the cars back with a pit stop. Lewis quickly learnt that he was faster and began rebelling against playing number two. This position hardened especially after Monaco 2007 where he felt his race was deliberately compromised to gift Alonso the win.
Alonso didn't like a fast rookie not meekly rolling over and playing number two, so ended up blackmailing his own team with emails in his possession. This led to a 100 million Euro fine (amongst other very damaging things); and of course, the team returning the bad blood.
