What “butcher” booth & co are saying is that their happy that these two novices have brought in enough money to keep their fat salaries coming in for another year.

What a waste of time no matter how much (they claim) the car's improved 2 rookies won't get you anywhere (look a yesterday Chilton lost it under braking).

@brezzy boy
I totall agree with you except for one small detail...
Chilton's crash was caused by a suspension failure, it (suprisingly, admittedly) wasn't Max's fault :p

Yeah, Max is saying it's suspension failure.

Thought it was quite funny when he said he was happy with his pace....5.3 secs of the fastest car. I know it's the 1st day but.....

Crash seem to have sorted the site, it's been torture this week.

so...let consider this, the team has dreadful financial problems, from what i hear due to management incompetence and complete lack of reality in what it takes to run a grand prix team! so, yes, take a well funded novice with potential like Max Chilton and then recruit an experienced racer with a smaller pot of cash...its not rocket science is it, but then I guess running a grand prix team is more about ego than common sense! it seems crazy that they can build a race car but cant seem to extract Booths head from his ****!

I'm guessing the idea is, take a couple of drivers who you believe have potential if not experience, who also bring decent money to the team. Use the year to basically get them in the game, do what you can but don't expect too much in terms of final results... and aim more for the 2014 season.
