So you really think the order to let Alonso pass doesn't come without his bitching on the radio? He expected his teammate to roll over for him and Massa told him to fuck off. Alonso was VERY pleased to be handed an unearned victory because he knew he couldn't beat Massa by racing him.
Maybe he is a better driver than Massa, but he wasn't during the race and he didn't earn the win.
