@ daniel kuchnia

You clearly don't have a clue about motorbike racing and motorsport in general.

Do you own a bike by any chance?

Rossi is a great talent and can go quickly on four wheels or two, whatever you put him in. Look at his test times in a Ferrari, much like the late great McRae, the really good guys are quick in any form of motorsport.

Keep your anti Rossi fanboy nonsense for the MotoGP forum.

Also, Vettel won in a Torro Rosso....explain that away with your 80% theory

Villeneuve is one of only few drivers to become a world champion in both Indycar and F1, two leading open wheel championships. Moreover, by his achievements he really did justice to his father, late great Gilles Villeneuve. People have to respect that. But telling something like "who the *** is JV, he is not an expert" just shows the absence of intellect. I really feel sorry for such people.

I liked him at Williams, shame he went to BAR and took the money instead of joining a competitive team, hmmmm....who's done that recently :)

JV's press releases are a bit like Lauda's, going to rub some people up the wroing way and there's a hint of bitterness/jealousy in his words.

If you mean Hamilton, then McLaren said they offered him much more than any other F1 driver earns nowadays. So, this move was not about money.

If someone doesn't agree with JV's opinion, it's his right. I disagree with him very often, by the way. But we have to respect his really outstanding achievements in motorsport and no one has moral right to tell "he is not an expert" sort of things.

I think Alonso is on more so I think Whitmarsh's statements about the salary thing weren't completely true, don't know why Ron persists with letting him run the team.

Well look about Daniels comments about Rossi's success been mainly down to the bike you'll realise the people don't always respect outstanding achievements, and Rossi's achievements are much more outstanding the JV's. Besides, these days respect is a rare thing.

JV should button his pie hole. Who's interested in his opinion of Seb? Not me, that's for sure. One of Vettel's endearing qualities is his enthusiasm for life and his unbridled joy when he comes out on top. Why would anyone have a problem with that? That he displays emotions at the other end of the scale when things don't work out as planned, is perfectly natural for someone as competitive as he is. I wish these old has beens, starting with Jackie Stewart, would understand, we don't care about their opinions. Are they so missing the spotlight they will say anything to get attention? How really pathetic.

"In 1995 he (Villeneuve)won the Indy 500 and the CART championship. Yeah, what a loser."
Hmm, let's see, who does that remind me of...? Got it! Nige!
Of which resemblance, make whatever you will.
