Angry Alonso books date with stewards

Sat, 5 August 2006, 11:41

Championship leader Fernando Alonso’s fist-waving and erratic driving booked him a date with the Hungaroring stewards on Friday.

The Spaniard, who furiously waved his fist after being blocked by Red Bull ‘Friday’ driver Robert Doornbos in free practice, then appeared to drive erratically in front of the Dutchman and brake-test him into turn-one.

Both racers were summoned to the stewards.

It also emerged on Friday that, for the second race in succession, MF1’s Christijan Albers will suffer a ten-place penalty after his Toyota V8 had to be changed.

Ross Brawn, meanwhile, refused to deny reports that he is planning to either retire at the end of the year or take a one-season ‘sabbatical’ from his duties at the Ferrari team.

”I’m afraid it’s going to be a very short discussion,” the Briton told reporters in Budapest.

”We will make the plans for the team known at the end of the season.”
