giveway. marko has a LOT more say than you or i. he is called an advisor, but he passes on didis instructions, and didi trusts his judgments totally.

but you say that marko is a driver manager? i hadnt heard that. who does he manage?

When drivers are isolated within a "team" for whatever reason, their form suffers. Look at Prost at maclaren, a proven champion but (did himself no favours either) in other circumstances could have had 5 championships before he retired. To the detriment of himself and big ron. Mark is in the right team to win a championship and has the skill to do it, even yet. However without the team behind you and not kept in the loop, even the greatest drivers would struggle.

Richard you have been seen off again, I never said that I worked for RB, go back and read the post, I said that I was with RB years ago, see if you were a guy that had had sponsorship you would have got that strait away, but you haven't have you, maybe it's you who makes the tea for Marco and Seb!
Come on, for once just admit you got it wrong.

c roach. i have not been "seen off" again, whatever that means! as we were talking about rbr/marko/mateschitz, how on earth did you think that you saying you were with rb could be taken any other way?

you having a sticker from red bull on your surf board had absolutely no relevance to what we were discussing. if it had, could you please explain.

i think that rob has you sussed correctly, the only surfing you have done, is on the internet!

incidentally, as i said before, nobody associated with red bull, has called dietrich "the big d".. sounds like surfer speak. that is one of the boo boos you made that showed you up!

oh and by the way, when i competed, i did indeed have sponsorship, but certainly would never make a claim that i was "with" the relevant company (which was in fact a tyre manufacturer)

" com'on Redbull, favour Mark for one year like you have favoured Vettel for three years, and just get him a championship, please! "


Red Bull never "got" Vettel a championship. He won those via his own efforts.

In the last 39 GP's Vettel has 16 wins and 8 second places - Webber has just 3 wins and 3 second places over the same time. It's frankly pathetic to watch people, including Webber himself, stubbornly insisting that he's just as good that that blasted German!

And don't even try to deny that your panties are in a knot solely because of the nationality of the people in question.

would be different if Mark was given equivalent equipment to work with & was allowed to actually RACE against his teammate...when your an Aussie in a German team, run by Germans, with a German teammate your never going to get the same opportunities or respect...I would've been happier to see Mark racing with Alonso as his teammate at Ferrari, at least he would have respect there

Jeez... if they wanted a #2 driver why didn't they just say so at the start. Front runner drives are hard to come by but no driver deserves this 5hit.

Q. How can you tell Marko is Talking crap?
A. His lips are moving.........
