I have to confess to be still wondering about what I witnessed in Budapest. All season Ron Dennis has played down any hint of a feud between his two drivers. In Hungary, it boiled over in the most spectacular way.
"There just isn't an issue," Ron said at Indianapolis, when all the evidence suggested that there was.
Alonso, at that stage, was still doing his best to disguise any problems. As we celebrated the 60th birthday of long-serving British journalist Alan Henry with a piece of Mercedes cream cake (for breakfast!) on Friday morning, Ron came across to share some friendly banter with Alan, a long-time friend.
Sat at the next table was Fernando and his manager, Luis Garcia. Ron wasted little time in going over to sit and have what looked like a friendly chat. Whether there was a problem or not, relations had clearly not broken down totally. They were still speaking at that stage.
