F1 » Kolles: Other team bosses are 'like bank clerks' – I have balls


In an interview that is hardly likely to endear him to his F1 colleagues, Hispania Racing (HRT) team principal Colin Kolles has compared his fellow team bosses to 'bank clerks' and mere 'administrators'...

Bernie and bank clerk aren't two things that go well together considering the current scandal surrounding.

As for Kollies, he might have big b0llocks but he also runs a team that's complete and utter b0llocks.

I think F1 is a beeter place with Colin Kolles in it. He has proved you can run a F1 team on the same budget as a top GP2 team he cuts the crap out,

I prefer him to the blinkered high spender Fernades at Lotus all hype, Kolles has the same points as Fernandes and has achieved the same points with a fraction of the spend.

Lotus Zero points
HRT Zero points

F1 is about points not PR huff puff

What I see in Colin Kolles is a F1 maestro aficionado
something like old Flavio or a smooth talking Eddie Jordan. A hard nose business man he is. Beening obnoxious is not necessary a bad thing, Not in the Dog eat Dog world of F1. When I look at Mercedes with
Zillions in technical resources still cannot produce
a car to compete with Ferrari. One have to wonder what kind of management people are making the decisions. Likely a collection of ass kissing smiling faces....NUTS

This is big talk from a with a track record of each team closing shop while he was in charge. Only thing that matters is results and to be frank, he is not posting the results. Until you win a race, you're just another car in the field.

Another no-hoper with an undistinguished track record and delusions of adequacy
i am sure that he does indeed have a massive pair, but I suspect firmly between his ears!.
