F1 » Tin-top hero slates F1 stars' 'pre-scripted nonsense'

Never one to bite his lip, double British Touring Car Champion Jason Plato has labelled the likes of Lewis Hamilton as 'dull as ditch water' in interviews - accusing modern-day F1 drivers of churning out 'pre-scripted nonsense'

It's only natural, given the size of the audience of F1, that everyone needs to be careful what they say, or people will jump down their throats, not that they don't anyway.

I'm not having a go at BTCC, but a driver there can say pretty much what they like and not many people will take any notice.

That's not a very nice thing to say thats the last thing that i would describe them as i find them very interesting indeed to listen too.The bit i like the most is when the top 3 after qualifying and the race are talking together in the press conference,i just love watching their faces when another driver is talking,its fasinating.

and of course, Plato is absolutely correct! Bernie has turned a great sport, full of colour and personality into a dull procession follow by a personality vacuum during press time.
Anyway, the fake rain will spice it up a bit (joke)

Sad but very , very true , it really pains me to hear the sheer and utter crap the drivers ( and teams ) put out on regular basis , They should listen to themselves , its laughable sometimes . .

For sure, it is the same for everybody. Obviously, the season is long and each team will have its ups and downs but f1 stars race their hearts out with upgrades always pushing the car in the right direction. The teams always do a fantastic job in preparing drivers to cope with the modern day demands of F1 racing, to be honest. But we're looking forward to the next interviews because you never know what could happen.

And always those women running after them with microphones, so they can spin the crap out of any wrong comment later. Reporters who are ignored by these women because they ask too many non-standard difficult questions.

Latest thing seems to be some spindoctor mindgame crap that sounds like total BS.

Ol big Mouth has been in F1 and understands winning and wanting to win @ the pinacle it's very different I 'm sure... It's corporate money and image of the sponsors, this doesn't allow them to trash names like Plato. As for trust ... LOL want to see him in an overtaking move or first corner rumble... It's all about trust.
Hay Putz drive a F1 car - win a race, a title and then perhaps let RIP. Sure would hate to sponsor Ferrari in the post race interview the drivers chewing gum one finger in the nose spitting in the bucket claiming 'All are a-holes'. shining images with cleaner then thou appearance - it's F1.
