Early on during this morning’s Japanese Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso overtook Felipe Massa. Massa didn’t make it difficult for Alonso — not that you would expect him to.
Scuderia Ferrari immediately tweeted on their official Twitter account:
Just for fun, I cheekily replied:
I have to admit to doing a little victory dance in my chair at having riled Ferrari enough to provoke them to reply.
I wasn’t being terribly serious with my tweet. It’s not especially that I thought Massa let Alonso through, or even that doing so would be wrong. Nor was my tweet about team orders. It was more about how Alonso can assert his authority at Ferrari.
But it’s interesting that Ferrari are touchy about the suggestion.
All good banter though.
