JPM - maybe team orders.
Alonso caught up at the late part of the race.
Didn't you see Alonso through his hands in the air several times wondering
why they were slowing down? He wanted to pass, I think if you gave him more
time he could of. But since he caught up very late - who knows.

Ralf sat behind his brother for almost the complete race and he never once
even tried to pass. I am not saying that he could, but he didn't even try.
JPM caught up towards the last 1/4 of the race, but who knows maybe team
orders or Patrick Head told him not to, because he could risk taking out
both of them.
Do you think if JPM was sitting behind MS for the entire race that he
wouldn't even try to pass him? You know JPM would try.
Alonso arrived with only a couple of laps left. But I think he would of
Hell....JPM set the fastest lap and caught up to them and Alonso gained 10
secs on the train and caught up with a few laps left.
Even the anouncers were saying the Ralf should try to pass.....I am sure it
was in everyone's mine.
How about this, do you think that if MS was behind RS that MS would try to
pass him? You bet your ass he would. I just think that RS is a defensive
non-agressive driver that would do anything for his big brother.
