Mark, you should have jumped ship to Ferrari while you had the chance...

Very disappointed to see my favourite driver since 2002 leaving the sport having been screwed by his team for the last four-to-five seasons.

I have stopped watching F1 for this reason.

While goldenbaby is under contract with redbullmanureracing, no co-driver is going to get a fair go driving for them.

Any driver considering such a move, I'm talking to you Kimi, should reconsider unless they want to commit career suicide.
And Daniel, if you're smart, you should be looking to jump ship as soon as you get a offer from another team (even Williams).

Mark was too loyal for his own good & it has cost him the chance to win the world title.

Of course nobody seems to recall 2010 when he was leading the championship, had the team's support and what did he do? Went off to Australia during the break, broke a rib in a stupid mountain biking excursion during his own event and then betrayed/lied to the team by never revealing the injury. That injury led to his drop in performance and losing the lead in the championship. Mark has nobody but himself to blame for not having a championship. And as a result of his dishonesty he's also responsible for the team's having lost faith in him. While he's a fine driver and I wish him well, his whinging is getting tiresome. Good luck at Porsche.
