F1 » Davidson: I should be in F1 – but it's a rich man's sport


Former Super Aguri star Anthony Davidson is adamant that he has 'unfinished business' in F1 - but barring a sudden windfall, he admits, he is unlikely to get another chance in what is now more than ever 'a rich man's sport'

Expect a lengthy piece from Hannah on this sometime soon! But seriously,when you see some of the shower of sh*te being bandied about for the remaining drives,Ant must wonder why he bothers.Glad he can laugh about it,otherwise it would make one weep.

Another case of self delusion unfortunately.

The owners of F1 teams are not stupid, if Anthony was a real talent he would be snapped up. The money is just an easy way for him to self justify his rejection.

Sorry Anthony I thinkyou are a nice chap but dont give up the day job.

compared to some of the cr*p being sent in from GP2 etc. just cos of their nationality or sponsor then he is better than them. by far.

he isnt a world beater but he could do a job for a new team with out sticking the car in the hedge every 5mins like torro rosso boys did last year.

Look where Sato is now too...

There was a brief period in 2008 when it looked like there were no direct pay drivers, perhaps Sutil eased his way in, but that's been blown out of the water with Max's "cost cut" teams.

Shame Sauber seem to be going down the pay driver route, but one can't blame them using the cash to tide them over until they're back on their feet given the last minute nature of the deal. The ex-Aguri engineer that is very supportive of Ant is at Sauber now, I think.

I had hoped Davidson would be back. It is a shame when someone with talent does not get the chance to compete. Most sport allows the best to compete regardless of their wealth.

He is a good motorsport commentator too so hope he keeps that up.

I for one never understood how Mr. Davidson garnered so much support among the British media. I'm sure he's a fine fellow, but what has he ever done except circulate at the back and whine about what he "deserves" and how well he could have gone if only he'd had a better car. Hey baby, that's the game
