2) I wouldn’t let Nandos win. Pulling over in the style PM suggested would humiliate Ferrari, humiliate Alonso.. Shame the fans of those two. Not pulling over would keep it an internal matter I’d also back it up with verbose rhetoric such as ‘Ferrari didn’t give me a fast car to go slower’ and ‘it’s in every Ferrari fans blood to win at all costs, this is the spirit of the racer’, stuff that plays to the passion of the most passionate fans in f1.
Irvine, Rubens and Massa, all seemed to be owned by Ferrari, and many fans don’t respect them for that. Fair enough, they agreed to it, but Brazil felt shame and anger that their Hero gave way. It doesn’t wash with me. I don’t worship Ferrari as the god of f1.
Racing is not about winning races, it’s about winning championships. However, I’m not a Ferrari fan, and would only want to race with them after I had a WDC.
If I was in. McLaren and Button or Hamilton was fighting for the WDC and I was out of the running, I’d let them by. It’s the sensible thing to do. People would know that was my decision, and respect that. They wouldn’t feel I was pwned.
