Do you know how you take an instant dislike to certain folk, well I never liked him when he was in F1, and never liked him since. He probably wont lose much sleep over my confession but thought I'd get it off my chest.

In the Nigel Roebuck interview with Webber he was saying that turn 1 at Interlagos was a nice place to overtake, but now that's kind of negated by knowing whoever you pass there will probably just pass you shortly after with DRS.

I quite Like Jacques.

As well as being a great driver he wasn't afraid to speak his mind and do things differently to the rest.

I do sort of see what he is trying to say, F1 is supposed to be the pinnacle of Motorsport but is it anymore?

I believe that F1 has lost any pretence of being true motor sport; for that, we must thank Bernie Ecclescake. It's now just a motor sport related advertising bonanza.

Personally I now have no interest in F1. I can't pinpoint exactly when I ceased to be interested, but it's a few years now, although I've never really been very enthusiastic about "slicks & wings" racing.

The problem with cars which have so much aerodynamic grip is that overtaking or even running close together becomes very difficult; F1 has had to resort to increasingly artificial means to (partially) overcome that problem.

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".
