So much for Jean-Eric being as quick as vettel in the like car and wanting a red bull drive next year. He also said that he expects to beat webber this year, i'd worry about your teammate first!!! Never a good idea to talk smack when you are an F1 rookie:)

Richard, please get your facts straight before you jump to your friend Bernie's defence. In total during the three quali periods the Force India cars were only seen 3 times and those were glimpses in shots that were focused on other cars. On one occation the camera actually repositions the shot so as to exclude the Force India from the shot In quali 1 when only marussia and Force India were on track the camera was focused on the Marussia and actually went to the Marussia onboard rather than show the Force India car (Force India seen briefly in distance) At the begining of quali 2 when only the 2 Force India cars were running we saw no track shots at all just various pit shots and the two HRT drivers walking away. When there were 3.5 minutes left in q2 there were 3 cars on track, 2 Force Indias on flying laps and Massa on an out lap the cameras follow the ferrari on it's out lap. ......
