Your serious???

Plato has bleated louder than anyone to get his own way and does some highly questionable moves....driving sheddon clean on the track at Donnington and a good few others. The rest are no angels but he doesn't deserve that title this year, Shedden has driven quickly, consistently and cleanly and is fully deserving of the title.

I used to like Plato but I've found his outbursts post race and driving hard to stomach this year.

@ Taz

Plato bleated about performance disadvantage when he had one, now Neal and Sheddon bleat about it because they have one. However, they're all as bad as each other, including Sheddon. Say what you like about Plato though, he went to a new car (run by a very experienced team I admit) to help develop it into a winner. Andy Neate is not that great, but look what Plato achieves in comparison, you can't deny he's getting everything out of it.

Sheddon has just sat in Matt Neal's wheel tracks for years waiting for his older team mate to either lose his edge or have a bad year. 2012 could well be that year. Has Sheddon REALLY earned a title?

Plato, Neal and Shedden may have all questioned the equalisation rules throughout the season, but the difference is that the two Honda drivers have done it with dignity.

Shedden has driven very well this season and thoroughly deserves the title. Whereas Plato has been nothing short a bully on track while his attitude off track has been atrocious. Many people including David Bartum and Matt Neal will vouch for that.

'Many people including David Bartum and MATT NEAL will vouch for that.'

Matt Neal? Pot, kettle, black. Have you watched BTCC? If Matt Neal isn't the dirtiest guy out there he's certainly in the top two, and his comments off track have been just as bad as Plato's. Gordon Sheddon is good, but he's done his fair share of shoving. I sort of agree with the other poster who implied that Sheddon has lucked in to this one. I would rather see the championship won by someone who has led a team.
