commodore. the qatari money was promised about three months ago, and kimi was supposed to be part of the deal. williams have already received, and spent, some of the money. but somehow i doubt that rubens would be saying that HE had the money to offer, as it was intended that he bow out for kimi.
yes, there is a lot of arab money coming into f1, through airlines and other main sponsors. a good or bad thing? you decide. but personally i would not like to be dependent on money coming from one specific part of the world. after all, some of these countries etc are experiencing problems, such as dubai, where construction has come to a standstill. dont forget, the uae consists of an alliance of family sheikdoms.

In the cold light of day, none of the contenders for the Williams seat looks like a future world champion. Sutil is good but his honeymoon period is over, Maldonado and Senna have little time left to prove they are better than mid-pack F1 drivers and Barrichello is not amazing anyone despite his solid talents and can't overcome the limitations of the car. I don't expect anything from Williams this year except increased top speed from Renault.

"of course the way in which a weld could have failed, is possible to determine! this is an important part of forensic science and the condition of the metal molecules can determine in what way the weld broke."

The question was when not how the weld broke!!!
Big difference !

Reported in Planet F1 - Paul di Resta admits he would love the chance to once again battle with Sebastian Vettel in equal machinery.

Di Resta and Vettel were team-mates at ASM Formule 3 during the 2006 Formula 3 Euro Series season and di Resta pipped the World Champion to the title.

That says a lot for Sutil.

Forums are full of "experts" that know nothing about what really happened in the Senna crash.

It is pure conjecture coming to a finite conclusion based on what they have heard or read about.

To say what state of mind Senna was in is unbelievable and crass.

There are people at Williams that will know what happened, the rest of us DO NOT !

Greg, If you can establish the "how" you can probably establish the "when" as I said before the difference in energy between turning into Taburello and hitting a wall at 150+mph is rather large!

Steven good to see at last an expert poster on Crash. I and other posters have never claimed to be F1 experts, if we were we would not be posting an opinion here. Get real.

Steven, Why is it crass to comment on Senna's mind set? The guy was rattled by Schumacher's speed, he was obviously seriously shaken by Ratzenberger's death and Barrichello's crash, he wasn't happy with his car do you think given all that that he was in the best frame of mind? 'Cos I don't.

Mistake by Senna ? And what would make him "mistakenly" spear off the circuit under throttle ?

Was it true that Senna was only kept "alive" so the race could be run to completion ?
Italian law would have had the meeting abandoned in if he had been declared dead at the track ?

@ Richard

No mate I don't like to see the sport supported by
a specific area of the globe however if that is were the money exists to support the most expensive sport in the world it is a matter of acceptance.
