@richard

Definitely not during the year as the dude is a serious businessman from the Netherlands and not some banana republic, besides there are some other sponsors invlolved as well who sponsor some other dutch drivers too.

I believe the sponsorship agreement with vdG predates his relationship with the daughter but I'm not sure.

As you seem interested in the subject though: the last Dutch F1 driver Albers also married the the daughter of one of his sponsors :D

Hmmm - wonder how the 107% rule is going to affect them (and Marussia). Sponsors are going to be really happy if they start getting bumped from races.

So as di Resta.He not set the world on fire as he.
I watch ever race from 1991.If i honest I not that fussed about this year. F1 as allways been about money ,But this just going mad. If we look at the grid there 22 drivers.Out of the 22 drivers 7 are pay drivers. .F1 is ment to be the best drivers and the best cars. It easy for use armchair fans to sit here say all of this. There all better drivers then myself and I bet most of you. But we not racing drivers.We are fans that buy the hats T-shirts.And sit down on a sunday afternoon scream at the tv when vettel win bloody again lol.I think it about time that the powers that be start think off us.With out us the sport will die.Just look at nascar.The fans meet the driver walk in the pit lane.I can understand why Montoya went to the usa.F1 becaming a joke .

redbulla. i didnt know that vdg had beaten vettel and lulu in f3. how many years ago was that? must be at least 7 0r 8 years ago. what ages were lulu and seb then? and how mnay times did vdg beat them?

if he was sooooo fast, how come he has not been noticed before, after all, bith lulu and sb were rapidly picked up and became wdcz. and again, if he is soooofast, how is he only able to get a drive in caterham?

puzzled i is!

this may come as a big shock to my fellow fans...I'm thinking about re-introducing premier league football to my household, at least this is sport where talent is the only thing that gets you a first team place! not sure who to blame really, maybe the sport is run by a bunch of incompetent managers with out of control ego's...either way I fear this season will lack something...talent!
Anyway, looks I'm moving to the states so bring on NASCAR...and screw F1.....Ritzy Has Left the Building!
