This video on YouTube shows what is reported to be the blocking incident.
If this is the video the stewards watched, well, it’s bullshit. I can understand Alonso’s frustration and Briatore’s now-apologized-for outburst.
I pity the FIA for having to stand behind the stewards on that call. That’s just crazy. Look at it!
After starting tenth, Alonso’s engine blew up before the end of the race – which arguably might have happened anyway – leaving a scant two point margin over Michael in the championship. It’s going down to the wire!
It’s even money on Shuey for the last few races. I hope Alonso wins. Schumacher is very, very good, though. Pity someone decided he needed help.
