    Ok, so if Alonso is DQ'd then Hamilton to be promoted to second (making him champion no matter what conspiricy you bring up) and Rosberg get's his first win, all happy :)

    Whilst we're at it can we DQ Schumacher for Belgium 95 and DQ him for the '94 championship as well. We can also find Hamilton innocent at Belgium '08 and stone Schumacher to death for Monaco '06

    Be careful what you wish for else we review McLaren and Hamilton's transgression's over the last few seasons who have done more to bring shame on the sport that any team in recent years. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

    I don't think Alonso played any part in the alleged actions in Singapore but I really wouldn't put it past Briatore. I would like to think this is all just a bit of hot air conspiracy but in recent years with spygate, blackmail attempts, lying to stewards etc I can't be so sure. It does make you wonder if Piquet is behind this and if he is I hope he can back it up else who would want to hire a driver who has been so critical to the point of defamation when talking about Briatore when he was sacked and now possibly making allegations like this.

    look on 2min 8secs


    No way that he did this on purpose... Maybe he says it now because they kicked him but that was just a driving mistake


    But hey, if you do a silly mistake just say it was on purpose LOOOL :rotfl:

    Best way is to ask Nelsinho, as he has the habit of spitting in the hand that fed anyway :)

    If he did that on purpose he will admit it instantly now he is kicked out of the team :D

    Huhuh :) Jos Verstappen crashed that entire season on purpose as well to help Michael S to become world champion

    maybe piquet had been hypnotised the night before the race and when Flav came on the radio saying "push push push" that was the subconscious signal to crash the car....

    Not so hard to think it might be true though.

    They got punished for it so no need to worry there and there not the only team who done bad stuff either so your little bash, was no need for it :)

    Ahh so its ok to wish stoning upon Schumacher and to revisit past races that don't involve McLaren, nice hypocrisy Damian. My point which obviously went soaring over your head was that every team has had their incidents, appeals etc.

    Raikkonen overtakes 3 cars using a tarmac runnof at Spa 2 days ago. Result: No investigation.

    Instead, FIA decides to open an investigation on Piquet´s crash against a wall in Singapur 08 :D

    FIA is covering this sport of glory... :D Cmon!

    ^^^ 10 points for reading the initial post...

    ... why do f1 threads almost immediately descend into petty point scoring yawnfests?

    What kind of driver would do that?

    If this is true, Nelsinho is over, not only in F1 but in any motorsport, and I hope he's not that stupid.

    The FIA has a record of all radio transmissions. All they have to do is look into that.

    FIA = Ferrari International Assistance.

    I noticed that as well, and didn't think it was very fair.
