Fernando Alonso has rubbished conspiracy theorists who believe Timo Glock gifted Lewis Hamilton the 2008 world championship.

In the wake of the incredible dying moments of the Brazilian grand prix, it was suggested that Toyota's Glock ceded fifth place to the McLaren driver so easily that he must have been in cahoots to prevent Felipe Massa from securing the title.

"It is absolutely clear that Glock did not just let him pass, or did anything strange," the 27-year-old former double world champion told the Spanish newspaper Diario Sport.

"On the contrary, I don't know how he managed to get to the finish at all with dry tyres.

"On the last lap it was raining a lot -- we were in the 1m20s (with wet tyres) and he did a 1.44s, the same as (his Toyota teammate) Trulli," Alonso added.
