Alonso penalized for blocking teammate

Current F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso has been stripped of his pole position at today's Hungarian Grand Prix after blatently holding up the FIA's favorite rookie, and reported second coming of Christ, Lewis Hamilton in the pits during qualifying yesterday, in a move reminiscent of Michael Schumacher's "on-street parking" at Monaco in 2005.

The tactic visibly incensed team boss Ron Dennis, who is clean to polish McLaren's tarnished image following Ferrari's allegations of cheating, but could be good news for engine supplier and sponsor Mercedes who has been making the most of Hamilton and Alonsos' intense rivalry.
