Help me Ron, Da racers gotta hold of my heart

No wonder Alonso feels put out. His team mate seems to be beloved the world over and seems actually faster than him. And despite me calling him a big girls blouse for complaining (and he is still that) it’s hard not to imagine he is being ignored by his team.

McLaren is an English team and Lewis is an English driver. He’s also been part of the team for a very long time. That kind of bond is very hard to beat. A lot of the engineers must have that almost paternal feeling of “my boy done good”.

And finally Lewis has that air of plucky brit about him. A sort of underdog status which in theory should start not to work now that he’s way out in the lead of the world championship and yet still does because he’s a rookie.

Alonso will go inside himself now. He’ll draw his close team of engineers together. And he’ll stop doing favours for Lewis. There’s not to be any making things easy. If I were Alonso I think I’d know what I’d do. I’ll tell you about it tomorrow…
