There's no doubt in my mind that the plan was either hatched by or nurtured by Flavio Briatore. I believe Alonso probably knew about it. But the whole world hates a fink, so even if he was inclined to rat them out (and obviously, I don't think he was) he wouldn't have.

I don't like Alonso, but it's way off the mark to claim that Flavio fell on his sword to help him.
