Exactly...it's not a matter of negativity it's just a reaction to seeing certain people hyped up without the results to back it up. Another example is Kovalainen.

The opposite also happens sometimes, for instance with Heidfeld IMO, a guy that won everything in junior categories, either defeated or at least matched all of his teammates in F1 including the likes of Raikkonen, Massa, Kubica and Webber (when Webber was still quite good) but was never really regarded as a great driver, perhaps through lack of 'personality' (but then does DiR have any?) or maybe not matching the results of that other German guy in F1 (however unrealistic that standard is in terms of results)...

Just making the observation that DiR hasn't exactly set the world alight in F1 in his carreer so far does not have much to do with being negative I think, the numbers aren't in his favour but also subjectively if you've seen the last halve of he season last year you've seen how much better Hulkenberg really was at t

What a load of rubbish. All we need now is for David Coulthard and Jackie Stewart to come out with more Clansman type comment.

If he was any good he would have beaten Sutil and Hulks but he could not and Mclaren decided on talent over a average British driver.

Come on guys you never here Taipan say anything positive about his countryman so that is telling you something.

...the end, he made Paul seem like he was out of his depth (that sad interview on BBC after qualy in Korea comes to mind when he once again claimed to have been held up in qualifying but then when BBC rolled the tape there was absolutely no sign of it whatsoever and the guys kind of awkwardly laughed about it).

Well all I'm sayin is that dir will outperform all his midfield competition. It will be a pattern of any series of mororsport he competes in. Takes a couple years yes but rest assured he will outdo competition this year within his means. This is the last year of the v8 and the playing field is as level as can be. Come back and slag but I reckon there will be the most points conversion over podiums and fastest laps and to be honest he will make a good point of what a consistent point scoring driver is for a midfield team. Something that any front running team boss will be looking for in the new era of f1. A driver that understands the limitations and rules of a sport and can work to their strengths. I say di Resta is a front runner for the future.
