PlanetF1 is reporting that Petrov is questioning why Renault may be interested in Raikkonen rather than him...
Vitaly...Sure he costs more, is a tad inconsistaent but can win races!!
Fernandes and Branson both feel that F1 should do away with Blue flags on the grounds that the experienced, skilled and faster drivers should not have a problem overtaking the tailenders and that all should be allowed to "race"
Interesting to note that not only do Fernandes and Branson run teams that are, being kind, running towards the back of the field, they are also dilletantes, rich kids with money!!, with no real background in car racing. They are in it for the money and will leave as soon as another marketing opportunity presents itself!**
I find it especially offensve that Fernandes brings Ken Tyrell's name into this argument -
|Quoting Tony F in Autosport:|
"I think it would be good for the sport to get rid of blue flags. In the days of Ken Tyrrell, he would never let any car pass."
Get with the program guys, Blue flags are a safety issue, they are necesarray because the wannabe racing drivers in your teams(and the slower drivers in almost any race anywhere) tend to think the rear vision mirrors are for checking your hair not what is about to over take you!.
PS Does this sound like the ramblings of a retired flag marshall that has seen too many of his signals ignored?
** I put Dietrich Mateschitz. in this group as well!
