He's right that to an extent they're all rich-kids - you just simply dont make it without huge financial backing and support. Not just going from GP2 into F1 - but going from karting to F3, GP3, GP2 or wherever takes a lot of money that 'normal' people dont have!

I'm afraid max you have been coping it because for you it is about money. Lets look at your career stats since you started and just maybe you will find the reasons you have been coping it. Spoon fed ****

Having utterly trounced this jumped up rich kid in karts (and I was one of many to do so I hasten to add) it is totally about the money!!

A couple of race wins in GP2 and not winning a championship since T-Cars (junior touring car) is not the record of a deserving f1 driver! Jolyon Palmer has at least challenged for a title though he's of the same situation. Just admit it, it's 9x more infuriating that he denies its about the money

1) it's not his fault he's got backing !
2) if you're going to point the finger at anyone,how about all those big British companies that never back UK talent.
3) judge him on his results a the end of the season. That's all that matters.
