@cknopp, I don't think that was quitting hobbling by allowing them a special relationship with bridgestone therefore giving michelin a disadvantage. That basically screwed up competition between tire companies in motorsport.
@fishy fingers, there wasn't only those two bad crashes in 94. Pre-season testing Lehto and Alesi had fractured vertabrae, Wedlinger was in a coma for months, Barrichello almost drowned inside his helmut and schiattarella broke his foot in Barcelona. All this was down to making changes without considering pro's and cons of the changes. Not very bright leadership.
And always an example of that leadership was when FIA banned aerodynamics, remember, then ferrari started using them then they were allowed again.
Leader of making boredom and generation of F1 that will stand out the least.

This bloke should realise he is no longer wanted in F1. I don't care what he thinks because he has no power and has to criticize to get his name back in the media for some attention. Go back to your dress up games.

Spot on post!

Reckon he should slime off into the Sunset.

But, I bet he is aching for some "limelight".

Whats next? Books, video's, TV etc. Should keep the charity shops topped up then!

He's entitles the odd word on his old job considering that modern F1 was partly his and Bernie's creation. And he does have better things to do, i.e. the admirable campaign against Murdoch/phone hacking which he is bankrolling . Never cross Max!
