If Alonso had deliberately blocked Lewis on track, he would be penalised. Does the fact that this incident happened in the pits make it any less unsporting?

Shocked and very disappointed in Alonso today. I thought he was above all that...clearly not

I was impressed by Lewis' smiley restraint in the press conference though, I would've been tempted to stick one on the nose of Alfonso (and I'm not referring to post-it notes or kisses).

Aside from the drama, Quick Nick was great again today.

It's not fair sportsmanship but I thought it was very funny. It's set up a great race for tomorrow I feel. A lot of people on (both on and off here) moan about the F1 drivers being drones and corporates, but when someone does something a little against the grain, if gets slagged off.

More of this type of controversy - and less of the espionage type please!

It's exactly the sort of thing I'd expect from a World Champion. A sharp mind, and a completely ruthless will to win.

We've seen the likes of Senna and Schumacher toss sportsmanship aside in order to win, and now we've seen Alonso do it too.

Much kudos for James Allen for his instructions to Ted Kravitz - "Go on Ted, go on, stick the mic in there, go on, I would...get in there!"

Disgusting behaviour from a world champion. I hope Ron refuses to let him race and puts the test driver in for the remainder of the year !
Alonso sucks...

I think it all started at the 1st stops where they called in Alonso a lap earlier than Lewis. Then held Alonso back and he was shouting down the radio (it looked like it anyway) then they held him back again later on so perhaps he was unhappy about losing "fuel burning" track time?

Sets us up for an interesting start tomorrow anyway.

I noticed that as well.........Lewis was looking Alonso straight in the eyes for a few secs,the drivers never do that normally....no matter what Lewis said in that press conference,he's furious.

If Alonso delayed leaving the pit box deliberately........he's out of McLaren,Ron won't put up with that,and from Ron's reaction you've got to say Alonso is in big trouble.
