News Round Up
Bernie Ecclestone has been telling those who will listen that we need to ditch the current engines and go back to the old V8’s immediately as it will be a) Cheaper and b) bring the fans back?
I’m not quite sure why Bernie says this rubbish its clear it’s not true! It’d obviously just to get idiots debating this. but lets face it, the current engine manufacturers are not going to go backwards or spend millions re-calibrating all of their kit to to breathe life to the old dinosaurs!
The Daily Mail have decided that Lewis Hamilton is degrading women by spraying one of the podium hostesses with champagne after winning the Chinese GP.
One again this is just a bad newspaper that really has no idea what they’re talking about. The girl herself isn’t that bothered about it, She knew that it was possible when she signed up for the job, and many girls do sign up to being podium hostesses / Grid girls etc, that’s some people’s choices of career so its clear that this is just a story made out of nothing but the aim to bring the British World Champion down.
Nico Rosberg complained after the Chinese GP that Hamilton had driven ‘too slow’ and backed him into Vettel. The truth is the that Hamilton drove to delta times as required by the team, the slowest time needed in order to keep the tyres in check (partly because of paranoia from the defeat by Ferrari in Malaysia)
Nico is currently making himself look very weak minded and sounds almost like he’s resigned himself to losing the championship already. Comments about Hamilton’s champions drive in Melbourne etc just point out the gulf in confidence between the two. Nico surely needs to come out fighting this weekend in Bahrain in order to re-gain some ground and do his talking on the track.
McLaren are looking to start ramping up the power on their Honda engine this weekend in Bahrain after an encouraging and reliable double finish in China.
Red Bull are continuing their threats to quit the sport as they cannot get their own way or build a fast enough package in conjunction with their engine supplier. Whilst making these noises they are also re-signing long term sponsors. ….?????
Lotus scored their first points of the season in China with Grosjean and are hopeful that Pastor Maldonardo will be able to start to turn his season around at the Bahrain GP
Williams agree that they are adrift in 3rd place at the moment behind Mercedes and Ferrari. They also believe that Felipe Massa is driving as well as he ever has.
Also today is Sir Frank Williams birthday – Happy Birthday Sir Frank, A true inspiration to all of us.
