Flash back to Mexico last year and the Alonso/Hamilton battle near the end of the race, Hamilton got a run on the straight and got past Alonso going into the corner as Alonso defended the inside, Alonso simply ran deep on the brakes, touched Hamilton's car and forced him onto the outside kerb as he kept his position. Then later Hamilton managed to get on the inside of Alonso, he didn't touch Alonso's car but forced him wide almost off the track, Alonso immediately got on his radio and asked his team if Hamilton had forced him off the track, this for the benefit of the stewards who no doubt were listening in, his team said it was alright.Zoue wrote:he did. He left Vettel with nowhere to go. I've never quite understood why but Alonso has never liked Vettel and I think that showed yesterday!Siao7 wrote:I haven't watched the race, just the quick highlights of the race, so I have a question for people who watched it properly. Did Alonso force Vettel out of track near the end?
The highlights didn't show much, but Alonso didn't get penalised so I am not sure if he did something wrong (thought one doesn't mean the other).
This being Alonso who says you must always leave the space and complains when he gets pushed off the track but he himself is one of the biggest culprits of forcing drivers off the track.
