Simple question. Please discuss. Both of course involve a certain bushy-eyebrowed Spaniard. To me the spygate scandal was more damaging and the participants guilty of more serious violations of the rules. If it were not for Alonso's status as reining WDC at the time and his marketability in certain key countries, he would have been banned for a year, IMO. The intentional crash was incredibly unsportsmanlike but Bernie has some responsibility by holding a race at a venue where it would be so easy to game the safety car rules.
