Stop Whinging and Learn to Drive

Sorry David Coulthard, but when I saw this:

I saw red.  I mean, apart from some of his astonishingly patronising comments directed towards younger drivers, he did nothing but confirm that his F1 career has been a long period of journeyman mistakes.

His ability to spin off during warm up laps was once something quite special in F1.  Of course, with traction control and other driver aids this era finished.  And now TC has gone, he’ll have to learn throttle control once more.

Good.

I’m looking forward to F1 that could actually be exciting for once.  And as Nick Heidfeld put it – “For me, it doesn’t cross the line of being too dangerous. If you want you can just sit on the outside, and then it’s safe.”

Have your say
