F1 » Domenicali 'not at risk'

Apparently Massa has come out in the Brazilian press saying for the rest of the season he's racing for himself, not for Ferrari, nor Alonso. Should be interesting.........this comes to mind: Implosion is a process in which objects (or a team?) are destroyed by collapsing in on themselves.

F1 » Herbert: Vettel’s best is still to come

To those (including me) who suggest that Vettel can't be classed as great until he drives something other than a (Newey) Red Bull, here's a thought. Jim Clark drove only for one team (Lotus), in cars conceived, rather than designed, by one man (Colin Chapman). In the period 62/3 until his death in 68 he was acknowledged as the finest of his time, and, maybe of all time. I cannot recall anyone ever casting the aspersion "he's not great until he's driven a xxxx (choose your car)". Everyone just wondered at his unearthly skills - and those on the track wondered how they could beat him (and I got that first hand from one of his peers). Of course the Lotus fragility often aided his opponents - if he finished, invariably it would be in 1st place. Why is it nowadays that we tend to qualify someone's talent with the caveat "it's only because of the car"? Oh, and by the way - as far as I am concerned Clark walked on water - there'll be none better - ever.

F1 » Raikkonen’s Ferrari return confirmed

@ Mikelite in '79, you had drivers who respected each other - in the case of Ferrari, Gilles accepted that Jody was the established driver, and backed him up, ready for his push the following year. Sadly that never came to pass... Also a similar situation at Lotus the previous year with Andretti and Petersen - with the same tragic outcome. Ethics and respect were more evident in those days.

F1 » Alonso rumours come ‘full cycle’

Nice move by Alonso - mind you, he'd get murdered if he tried to race against pro cyclists. They are on another plane compared to other pro sportsmen. Schumacher used to train with Tony Rominger in Switzerland - now he (MS) was fit, but on the alpine climbs when he was "on the rivet", Rominger just rode away up the mountain. Leave the drug issue aside - it is hopefully moving into the past, in cycling - maybe more so than other sports. As a sometime racer (got my BC race license), it's good to see some faith being shown in our sport.
