Betty Boop, Speaking For McLaren Said....

I used to respect Alonso both as a driver and as a man with a bit of character but the bottom line of all the nonsense that has gone on realy all boils down this, Alonso saying to the Ronster, "I can't beat Hamilton on the track so you must give me a better car than him."

And the Ronster replying, though I'm sure a little more diplomatically, said, "Fernando, go fuck yourself."

Double world champion Fernando Alonso has agreed to split with the McLaren-Mercedes team by mutual consent.

In a widely expected move, the 26-year-old Spaniard has agreed terms to terminate his agreement with the Woking squad after just one season of his three-year contract.

Alonso made no secret of the fact at the start of the season that McLaren was the team he had always wanted to race for – but after a turbulent year admits things didn't pan out as he had hoped. more

Always an informative read, Mike Lawrence on "Stepneygate" pride and betrayal. (written before Alonso's departure)
