Re: DC expected to announce retirement at Silverstone.

He's had a good run of 3 years with Red bull when he was probably lucky to get the drive in the first place. I would think the podium at Montreal gives him an opportunity to go out on top so to speak.

Re: DC expected to announce retirement at Silverstone.

Well he certainly drived like he had

Re: DC expected to announce retirement at Silverstone.




Aye! History will say that DC had the best cars in F1 during a 3 or 4 year period and didn't even come close to the championship.

But DC is a good lad!

On the other hand, there was also "yacht-gate"... those dodgy photos of him shagging one bird while he was supposed to be engaged to another!

Apparently when asked where he was going to go after he retired he replied:

"To infinity and beyond!!"

Re: DC expected to announce retirement at Silverstone.

To win 13 Grand Prix is a considerable achievement, and on his top form he was as good as anyone. He has some fantastic drives to his name. He readily accepts that in the final analysis he did not quite have that 'last little bit' that would have made him a world champion.

To have been teamed up with Hakkinen and race against Schumacher for the majority of his career when they were at their best was a tall order for anyone. I'm just a bit sorry that this year has proved a bit embarassing for collisions, and his podium was a welcome relief.

DC is one of the good guys of F1. Lord know we need Jenson to put up a bit better show than he has been doing of late.

I'd also like to put in a 'thumbs up' to Red Bull, who seem to behave like a very civilised bunch where their drivers are concerned.

Good luck to DC whatever he ends up doing.
