What a load of horse s*** !!

As much as I like Kimi and Lotus, I find it disgusting that drivers like Valsecchi is playing the Martin Whitmarsh role - "Oh, the team is that, this" "Oh, Im confident Romain this that".

What they guy really should be writing in his column is the truth - "Lotus is such a good car this year, i really feel I should have been the racing driver". but no, this guy wants to be Martin Whitmarsh!

@the shining light

Please go on about how you would tell your boss's that they are wrong on there decisions and your the best thing since sliced bread.

I bet if you did that at your 9-5 desk job, they would laugh you out of the building and all your co workers would too.

I can't stop praising the Enstone outfit. I started watching F1 in the early 90s in a time which Williams-Renault was dominating this sport. And in 1994 one Michael Schumacher managed to beat them with a car produced from the Enstone's men and women. Since than I "fell in love" with the Enstone outfit. But Schumacher switched teams in 1996 and I hated him for that, cheering for Alesi, Berger and Fisichella. I even cheered Schumacher archrivals in other teams, as Villeneuve in 1997 in the Williams, and Hakkinen in the McLaren from 1998-2001. But ten years ago I found my idol, again in Enstone. Then he was just 22 years old but I felt he was the one which would end Schumacher's dominance. Since then I am following him and cheering him. He too made the same as Schumacher, switching teams but I wasn't anymore a kid or teenager. I understood his decisions and Schumacher's decisions too. That's a long time ago. I still like a lot the Enstone outfit.

"Please go on about how you would tell your boss's that they are wrong ..... they would laugh you out of the building... "

I wouldnt worry about that. I quit the likes of Boulliers and Whitmarshes a long time ago, when I was still thier 'Kimi'.

Im the Ship's captain now and lead my own crew. Yep, "I know what I'm doing".

And oh, I have a few Valsecchi's in my crew, and I'd rather they not write a column(where they have to honey-coat everything) and simply race in other categories, than write one and lose the very essence of being a racing driver.
