I said this would happen yesterday. Max would find his pawn a ride. Now what do you think? The most unemployable driver is getting rave revues. Does anyone else find the interesting. Or sickening?

Piquet will not get a drive! this is just a free way of getting media attention about the team. All the hype is about Piquet at the moment so why not ride the wave if you are a new team starting out. :)

Manor Motorsport are Moseleys stooges, Donnelley got caught helping them through the whole process and hey presto they get a slot ahead of far more qualified people. Getting Piquet a drive to say thanks for Crashgate is a wonderfully stupid and crassly obvious move, I honestly thought they had a bit more art to the charade than that.

Who would bet against Manor being given a FIA hand up the grid in 2010 ?

Calling Virgin whiter than white is so ironic for anybody who knew them years ago, all the innocent fools who never question how come Beardie became so popular with Pop Stars and Djs !

From all the mixed bits and pieces all three mem Flavio, Pat and Piquet Jnr are all as bad as each other from where I sit and all of them should have been banned from F1. Piquet possibly getting rewarded with a drive for what has to be one of the most stupid errors in judgement in F1 history disgusts me. How many of us would have loved the opportunity to drive an F1 car??? This guy abused that privelage, regardless of his reasons and he should never have been given another opportunity!!!

rob - Piquet deserves a second chance. He prooved fast in the lower series and when he had the team focused onhim rather than Alonso in Germany last year, he nearly won. The guy has promise. This is probably more to do with his old mans contacts rather than Mosley.

You can't blame Mosley for everything you don't like in F1.

i'm glad piquet could be getting another go in f1.most people say he shouldn't have done what he did but i wonder how many of you would have done the same thing in piquets place when there's a big pay packet at stake.

i believe piquet when he says flavio is a bully because even pat symonds didn't have the guts to say no to flav the lav.
and as for flavio not knowing anything about it i bet a fly couldn't fart in that renault team without flavio knowing about it.

rob - whislt I am not Mosleys or Piquets biggest fan, I prefer to look at this from a more balanced point of view. You sir are letting your hate of Mosley cloud your otherwise spot on judgement. I don't know what you are on about multiple name posting. I only post under "andrewm". Not my fault if an unregistered poster shares my views occasionally is it? Mosleys gone at the end of October - great! Time for a bit of change but that is no need to constantly harp on about how you think he has gifted certain teams parts, or got Piquet a seat. I think any team manager would have enough sense to make up their own mind. And please don't tell other what to do. It is very rude and vulgar.

The only thing more annoying and less interesting than Mosley, Piquet and Flav is the constant bitching of andrewm and rob. Why don't they just settle their little arguements with handbags at dawn!?

@ Rob01 and AndrewM

Guys please sort it out for god's sake. Your feud is getting old real quick. Did you two used to date? Seriously Rob, everyone on here knows you HATE Max with a vengeance, you don't need to keep telling us! And telling other posters what to do? Get over yourself.
Re Virgin/Manor - I really hope they don't pick Piquet, mainly cos he's a bit rubbish, and he cheats. His immunity from punishment is a travesty, and I agree either daddy or Max is trying to place him there. They should go for a sh*t-hot pairing of Davidson (hi xHannahx) and Carroll. That would be great. Klien is a waste of space. No doubt it'll be him and Piquet then :rolleyes:
