As usual, Marko is at odds with his own team. Christian there was nothing lost in translation, I watched the interview. Most intelligent unbiased followers of this sport realise Mark is a good racer who brings a lot to his team. Even Christian has now publicly stated Mark has a number of years in him. Unfortunately Helmut only has eyes for his golden boy, or may be boys now with Daniel.

No Hm.m.m.m.m. Ed.

Helmut was very straight forward in his interview
to the Australian audience.

He stated they expected Mark to retire from the team
and F1 at the end of 2012 and continued on to say he expected one Australian to be replaced by another Australian which is in contradiction to Horner and other comments Helmut has made.

Mark has purchased a home in Aust on the North Coast recently which is in the Millions.

Not sure about this one. I think that HM tells it like it is because he doesn't know how to or doesn't give a t0ss about tarting it up for the public. That's CH's job. Problem is that HM likes to shoot his mouth off, which makes CH's job more difficult. As for MW having many years left in him, it's relative isn't it. He could mean 2011 and 2012.

I've stated it before, and I will again, Mark, go and win the bloody title next year, retire and stick it up Helmut. He'll be grovelling, but do everything on your terms. Even better, come back to Oz and race some V8's.

dts. i guess that you dont like marko. but he has more insight into f1 than any of us. mark has certainly hinted many times that he will be going at end of 2012, so marko is only repeating what he believes. it is up to mark to decide if he is staying, and also to perform to such an extent that he would be guaranteed a drive. what is the harm in talking about the future? it changes from day to day, for all of us.
at the end of the day, marko is dietrich's right hand man, and i guess what he says, goes.

Richard you miss whats happening here.

The interview Helmut gave lasted about 4 minutes.

During that 4 minutes he expressed a lot or insinuated.It would depend in what manner you accepted it.

What DTS is saying and I can support him because we
both watched the same interview Helmut contradicted
himself and the other principals of the team with what he said. Yeah things change mate but Helmut is hard to decipher.

Do I like him No and that is from personal experience
at the Melbourne G.P.. I found him unsociable and not a man to trust

Commo, yes, very exciting. Richard, Mark has never stated he shall retire next year...or any year. He has always been open with the fact he takes it year by year. Why should he retire? I wouldn't class him as old. I think his stance keeps the pressure on the team. Mark is a true competitior and wants to be competitive, especially now. They have a very stable team and Mark has been there for some time and has been a loyal and valuable member. Why should he retire if he is performing, point scoring and is consistent? I do believe he is still 2nd in WDC and RBR are 1st in Constructors!
