I think Mark's missing the point here, F1 has been very dull for years now and this race was just the last straw. This race in isolation isn't the problem, it's that we have cars which are designed not to be able to race being driven by overprofessional characterless drivers who will do nothing to upset their sponsors.

Mark in this statement is a bit guarded to what he says and feels.

He recognises what is wrong within the sport however when he states the obvious as he has done in the past everyone slams him.

When he has a go on the circuit to be a racer he is slammed.

He wants what we want and has said so. Real Men in Real Cars.

The guy is 33 and is considering this to be his last year in the top ranks however may remain if the incentive is still their but he is like us and considers Bahrain a bore and is endeavouring to be up-beat regarding the category.

He is not the rulemaker.

Immediately after Bahrain all the drivers and teams were predicting the season was stuffed.

Then Bernie proclaimed: "There is no panic, no crisis for F1. I had a meeting with the teams and tried to explain what our business is about, racing and entertaining the public, not about playing with computers and going fast over one lap."

And now they all fall into line, Jenson, Lewis, even Mark. It's going to be OK, all hail Bernie our saviour.

Don't know if I'm missing the point but how can all the rest of the races not suffer in the same way?

The problem is you can never get close enough to make a pass because of the aero and the introduction of a rev limit combined with the teams choosing to drop KERS.

Does Mark know something we don't? Does Bahrain have special air the causes problems with following a car that won't affect other circuits? Is a team going to break the FOTA agreement and put KERS back in a car (go on Williams you never did show your hand)? Or is it just more pontification?

Just get rid of the aero, then u can have stupid engine but will still have to break for a corner which is where a pass will be made!!!!
