I will trade with this spoiled brat any day he wants. He can work my job and I will work his (support roll to Massa till I can take him down) and then he can look me straight on and tell me how hard he's got it.

He makes the money he makes because he's one of the very best drivers in the world if not (arguably, of course) the best! He's in the position he's in because he dedicated himself to his sport, made all the neccessary sacrifices growing up that come with that, trained hard, and had the talent to rise to the very top, unlike you armchair ninnies who have neither his comitment nor his talent to attain his level of success. Jealous? Much...!

"Bitch and moan..." "Spoilt brat.."

He's entitled to his opinion and in my view, he's right. Get rid of some of the worst Tilke circuits, which don't produce good racing anyway, and get back to 18 races, I say!

@PeteLakeGeorge

theoretically speaking, trimming the calendar will in no way have any affect on the cost of competing.

Remember, like MotoGP and LMP1(endurance) Formula One is basically a prototype-base form of motorsport. In that case what really is driving the cost of competiting is the cost of R&D and engineering hence why the calls in both champions for imposing a budget cap.

If you ask personally, both F1 and MotoGP can learn a great deal from the NBA,NFL and MLB.

As for cutting races, on paper its good, but economically more races is good for the sport. To put it straight, more races mean more sponsors.

Try training 6 days a week for several hours a day pushing your body beyond its limits as your daily job instead of sitting at a desk for 8 hours, its not the same thing, the body needs a rest.
