I agree a rational view.
His Father Graham would I am sure agree with his comments.
I can remember Graham voicing concerns over the control major car manufacturers were gaining in F1, when I spoke to him at the Elstree flying club many years ago.
There is a conflict of interest of major proportions here reflected by Fota and their muppet Vatanen.
Add in a criminal team manager also managing drivers and corrupt deals are sure to be made.

I agree with him. We don't have any idea of the kind of pressure Briatore has put on Piquet Jr. What Piquet did was wrong, because he only thought about his career. Would Bourdais or Davidson accept to do the same hing in order to stay in their teams? I don't think so... But, even though Piquet Jr deserves a penalty (maybe 1 or 2 years away from F1), I also think he deserves another chance in the future, when he shall be more mature. Only one question: Damon Hill and George Harrisson were twin-brothers?

What a surprise. Autogyrate turns up and tries to turn this into a Vatanen and car manufacturer bashing session. Please stop with your rhetoric - no one is interested. You surely cannot be a true fan of F1.
