IMHO, I think other teams should also develop italian drivers not just Ferrari. Unfortunately in F1 if you don't have the financial backing you chances of success is pretty slim.. We all know this over the years. With all due respect, How many drivers over the years were able to get a drive because they have the money. Several japanese drivers in the past that was given a drive didn't even deserve to be on the Grid. Because of the nature of F1, talensts out there who are worthy of a drive or support from bigger teams miss out because they don't have the money or financial backing to bring to a team. Lewis is lucky as he was molded by Mclaren, I think regardless of nationality if a team spots a talent, they should support and nurture them.. who knows, we might have missed out on the next Senna because the kid didn't have money. Our best case scenario is to get Vale to switch from MotoGP and go Race in F1... now that will be a dream come true... :)

Ago? Exception?
Is this the Ago that was the only rider on a dominant MV Augusta that could lap the entire field?
Thats comparable to Laurel and Hardy driving around in a Ferrari against marathon runners!!!!

I suppose if Ago had been British you would speak with adulation, instead of mocking him.

Maybe you will say now that Mike Hailwood has been the greatest and not Rossi

YOu know what's the favorite movie scene of Luca di M?
SHOW ME THE MONEY screaming scene from Jerry McGuire.
Well, Jules Bianchi at least sounds Italian, like Jean Alesi Jr?

MAybe it's time that Ferrari signs Patrese's wife! She would be prime-time spectacle, and let's be honest - she can't be worst then poor Slo-mo Felipe!
