Fernando Alonso has sensationally accused Renault of sabotaging his title campaign by making intentional errors during the Chinese Grand Prix.
“They wanted us to finish second and third because they do not want me to take the number ‘one’ to a different team,” Fernando Alonso told Spanish newspaper AS. “They are not helping me as much as they could. Some [at Renault] are happy because we went past Ferrari in the team battle,” he said.
And we are speechless !! We are not able to think straight !! Too many coincidences to be comfortable or just plain paranoid ?
….in a statement released on Tuesday night, Renault insisted all the team was fully committed to Alonso’s cause. “The team is 150 per cent behind Fernando in his battle for the championship and there is no question of our commitment flagging,” it read. “The points situation is so tight that to win the constructors’ championship you’ve got to be sure of winning the drivers’ championship and vice versa.”
Whom to believe and whom not ?
