When will these two grow up? They are both that which I would call "naughty" drivers - and are like red rags to a male bovine creature towards each other. GROW UP THE PAIR OF YOU

Is this the same Jason Plato that last week was appointed onto the BRDC Board of Directors, and was quoted as saying he was looking forward to nurturing and MENTORING young drivers?

Wow, Driving Standard will drop even lower then...

To be fair, Plato is already not happy about the old turbo vs NA cars anyway, then last race he was robbed of his position from a combination of a bad racing driver and the same turbo va NA arguement. I can understand his madness to be honest. But surely getting pole position among turbo cars, shows his skill as a driver, his passion shows his commitment, surely we have all conducted ourselves in a bad way due to a feeling of unfairness at some point, it must be annoying to be BTCC champion and then be robbed the next year. Why no comment about matt neal? Hes a good driver, in my opinion not up to plato standards but still good, surely then, they both should have avoided controversy entirely and its 6 to one and half a dozen to the other?

Why doesn't Alan Gow just give the title to Plato? He seems to adjust everybody else so that the can't compete with him every time Plato has a bad weekend. If Plato was that great how come he has never progressed from BTCC?

Plato haters say what you like about him, but fact talk for themselves, hes one of the best drivers in the BTCC.

Neal is as well but Plato's got the edge if things were on a level playing field and last year proved that.

Plato is a disgrace.

He useds ITV4 whinge so that he get the rules changed so he can win. Soon the turbo cars will have to have the turbo switched off and run on battery power.

Sheddon is carrying a passenger is his car its that heavy and also the best car on the grid the Honda is 10th and 11th through the speed traps.

Amazing when Plato was winning in the Seat TDi there was none of this controvesy, he's just like a 5 year old, which was shown yesterday when daddy had to step in and stop Matt Neal decking him.

Why do so many people have something against plato, how boring would the BTCC be without the action he brings to the table. Matt Neal was the one that started with the violence, on camera too! Plato should maybe have kept his disagreement a little more subtle but thats not really an excuse for Neals threats. All it would have taken is one of them to have been a bigger man and ignore it, but they both reacted to the situation and both reacted badly. Then again, surely people can understand why plato was so annoyed with the sitation after watching what happened. Am I the only one that wants Shedden to outshine Neal, all we ever see from Shedden is good driving, but noone seems to give him the credit for it.
