F1 » Webber confirms Porsche sportscar move


Through personal family connections to money he jumped the queue ahead of vastly more talented drivers in Australian karting and Formula Ford in the 90's. He wasn't even in Australia's top 50 karters. Nobody even knew who he was, as dozens of better talents were winning the Titles. When he started placing ads in local motorsport magazines in the 90s suggesting that he would be australia's next F1 driver everyone thought he was a Wayne Kerr. True - the joke ultimately proved to be on the drivers with talent when this chump actually did make it to F1 - but all this means is that it proved to many that F1 is actually not the result of a talent filtering system of international motorsport but merely a capital filtering system. Too bad - there were 10 to 20 karters in australia in the 90s who could be pushing Vettel hard right now - but they are working day jobs now because they didn't have family connections to money. F1 is meaningless - just an indulgence for the well-heeled.

F1 » Ricciardo: Future is in my hands


He simply doesnt deserve it - he has done NOTHING impressive in a quarter decade in F1 - long past the point when stars of the past have shown their star potential. He is a b-grade at best - probably not even Webber standard let alone vettel. Would be a travesty to hand the best car in the world to such an unworthy recipient. For godsake Horner do something just for once in your life and put someone in who has earned it - di Resta for example. Or better yet Alonso - and make it a season that goes down in the history books like 1988 when McLaren had the two best drivers of all time! Get some damn perspective!

F1 » 'Three in running' for Red Bull seat


Horner is shaping up as the next Frank Willaims - another team manager without the slightest ability to identify driver talent - mind blowing that he would say Di Resta is not on the shortlist when this is a guy who beat Vettel in the same car pre F1 - and been impressive at times in F1 - unlike Riccardo and Vergne who have failed to impress for quite some time now - its almost as if he WANTS a number 2 driver alongside Vettel - oh wait...!

F1 » F1 POLL: Who next for Red Bull Racing?


to the fangirls still crapping on about riccardo's 2010 young guns test - WHO CARES - its like using kindergarten records to guage university entry - its irrelevant after seeing data from the real game - he's been in F1 a quarter of a decade now and not even scored a top 6 finish. He's yesterday's news - just one of a long line of "promising" drivers to fail to deliver. NEXT!

F1 » Horner backs Webber announcement


Through personal finance connections he jumped the queue ahead of far more talented but underfunded drivers in karting and Formula Ford in Australia to sneak into F1 despite no results whatsoever in anything ever prior to F1 -- then he took 9 years and 130 GP to win a race - the longest of ALL 105 winning drivers in history - in fact longer than the entire career lengths of 760 of the 800 F1 drivers ever - and even then only by being given the best car - which he has now had for a massive 4 years - 60 GP - arguably more opportunity than any driver in history bar Schumacher's Ferraris (and Vettel with the same RBRs) - yet he squandered such unparalleled privilege - rising only to 33rd on the list of total wins - winning only 9 races in over 200 GP - a strike rate of just 4.5% - a dismal 5 to 10 times lower than the greats: Fangio (47%), Clark (35%), Schumacher (29%), Stewart (27%), Prost (25%), Senna (25%).
