Mr Buxton is 100% correct in all he says. I started competing in the mid sixties and thus have seen many changes over the years. The current state of 'bad manners'
would in the past have been dealt with by fellow competitors behind the scenes
but the sport (if it can be called such anymore) is now too overrun with layers of sponsors, team managers, PR consultants, media advisors et al for that to happen.
Much though I hate the involvement of stewards for trivial racing incidents, I have been saying for years that the only way to deal with disrespectful and dangerous track brats is to take their toys away. Unless terminally stupid (some are!) they will eventually learn. Having suffered the loss of friends,rivals, and heroes over the years I am very relieved that Snr Alonso is still with us and utterly determined that we cannot be blase about safety. For once maybe the lesson can be learned before a tragedy occurs.
