That's awful!
I do feel really sorry for Bourdais, he missed out on the upgrades for a start, but also I read an article in 'Autosport' magazine about him. Apparently he found out on the Thursday before Germany but was banned from saying anything all race weekend so when all the media were asking him if he was going to be at Hungary constantly he had to lie. In the end he just lost it and screamed at them. That's how much the pressure was getting to him. :(

I wonder if the "techies" at his phone network can get their paws on a copy of that text and splash it on the internet, as an embarrassment to STR? Or maybe Seb can do it himself. OOPS!

STR is totally classless. Like I said when I read this 3 days ago on another site, I guess it's a step up for STR from the physical confrontation with Scott Speed. Hopefully one day STR will learn some personal and managerial skills.

I mean, seriously! What if his gf had seen it first while he was in the shower or something, thought it was a prank text and deleted it? Seb turns up at the factory the next day, all smiles and ready to work...and wondering why everyone's looking sad and saying sorry :?
