FIA GT » Grosjean joins Matech


I agree, those who just click "disagree" to squiggle's comment without bothering to write anything, please take a look at Grosjean's junior record, as I presume you're all the type who are totally ignorant of drivers before they reach F1. Grosjean won two F.Renault titles, the then highly prestigious F3 Euro Series, GP2 Asia on his debut and top rookie in GP2. I have no doubt he'd have challenged Hulkenberg for the GP2 title last year (and certainly beat team-mate Petrov for 2nd) if he had stayed in the championship, though a massive crash at Monaco seemed to dent his confidence. Making his F1 debut in a midfield-level Renault with no testing he was always going to struggle.

F3 » Six-car Carlin head British F3 entry


Yeah, it's hardly a bumper entry but all things considered it's not bad for the present climate. Triple 8 are also supposed to be entering at some point. There were only 19 cars this time last year, and the F3 Euro Series looks like only having 13 cars. If that folds as rumoured in 2011, British F3 should be stronger next year. Meanwhile the supposedly superior F2 is desperately signing any old driver including Plamen Kralev and an Indian film star, and GP3 has most of its seats still empty... so altogether British F3 is doing well. :)

DTM » Mercedes retain Ralf Schumacher


Better than most of the F1 drivers today? I don't think so. Ralf could be very good on his day but there just weren't too many of those were there? He alone allowed his F1 career to fizzle out and I think that reflects his attitude. I didn't say anything about Ralf reaching F1 because of his surname (although of course it helped, just as it did with Hill & Villeneuve). He had a good junior career so was as deserving a chance as many other drivers. My point if you bothered to read it was that Mercedes obviously want him in DTM for his marketing value. But in two seasons of DTM he's been mostly CRAP, so surely someone like Jamie Green is more deserving of current machinery.
