    See , debate doesn't hurt .
    And the worst condescending response ever floated on here.


    Even that idea is problematic for the same reasons that l gave earlier on the matter if you bothered to check it out first before castigating me. Adding any money to a teams budget would not be fair to other teams, regardless of the reason. Racing is a happenstance sport. Accidents just happen to be part of the game. So when it happens, that is the way it is. This argument can be extended to other unforeseen costs that the budget cap had not taken into consideration as well. From accidental damage to misinformation that resulted in expended cost. The line should be clear. And forgive my bluntness.

    The limited budget places a restriction on drivers to drive wisely. As any damage that results from racing would be resolved from the limited budget of the season. It might sound harsh for those incidents that are wholely another drivers fault. And by wholely, l mean 100% like Senna on Prost at Suzuka. I would think an exception could be made for willfully intent to damage the other driver car and race. Even that is as controversial as they come to prove without some level of bias. Especially seeing your reactions for what is essentially a racing incident.

    If there is anything Alonso doesn't deserve, it's a McLaren. He has already demonstrated that - twice.
    If Fernando hadn't acted like a complete dick towards Honda, McLaren would probably be fighting for race wins and not just podiums right now.

    I agree actually. That attitude of Alonso is probably why he has missed out on being in a championship-winning car since Ferrari-gate. He just lacks the patience to work through the kinks and ride the difficult moments that are necessary for progress.

    That said, Alonso in the current Mclaren would have been quite something.
