You’re right that ferrari haven’t apologised or seemingly had the gradce to do so but then technically they can’t as then it would be admitting what happened. there’s also been plenty of cases of PR talk from all drivers take Hamilton, Schumi who have said “sorry if…” which basically means nothing to me.
I don’t agree at all with what Ferrari did but I see their logic. What I too love about Ferrari is the way they do what they do and don’t apologise for how they are whether rightly or wrongly and they really are there for the racing and to win. They are passionate and stick by their guns even in the years in the wilderness as Rampante pointed out. It makes them seem arrogant and smug perhaps which isn’t great for their image either.
If I thought any other team was genuinely more sporting or honest I’d support them as I’m a fan of racing first and foremost but I don’t.
“I love (to hate) his response in the press conference yesterday in regards to what makes a champion. It’s almost the exact opposite to something that Barrichello said just after the whole incident – that if you win the championship by the number of points that you received by being allowed to overtake a teammate, then you haven’t really won anything. “
I noticed the difference between him and Barrichello’s answers too. It showss the difference in mentalities between the two. I’d like to think I’m more on Rubens side as if you don’t win fairly then it isn’t a win but I guess it’s easy for drivers to lose sight of that. I think it also shows the desire Alonso has to win at all costs. I find him a truly fascinating character. Perhaps given how emotional him and Ferrari can be it’s easy to see thei desparation to win at times.
