Fred is good in his driving skills, but not among the very best, and his hot head just sadly brings him back down the field.
Luca di Montezemolo should resign immediately as Ferrari president after the Italian marque blew Fernando Alonso's title hopes in Abi Dhabi.
That was the emotional charge late on Sunday by Roberto Calderoni, a minister in the Berlusconi cabinet.
"Despite the ability of the excellent Alonso, Ferrari has managed to lose a championship already won," said Calderoni.
"We are ashamed of this insane strategy and he (Montezemolo) is guilty," said Calderoni. "He should get out of Maranello immediately so he does no further harm to Ferrari," added the minister. "By the evening, we expect his resignation."
According to the Rome newspaper Il Messaggero, Montezemolo responded: "Sometimes winners lose, but we do not give up."
"There are some small people who systematically root against the country and its symbols. Luckily they are the minority," he added.
Alonso also defended Ferrari's strategy.
"Afterwards it is very easy to see the best strategy," said the Spaniard. "This is a sport and sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Congratulations to Red Bull and Sebastian (Vettel), next year we will try again."
Do you mean he was paid or his car was sabotaged by the team?I wonder why Webber was so slow in the last two races tho?
This is hilarious. Good thing I don't take pro racing too seriously. :wink:Quoting http://paddocktalk.com/news/html/story-149424.html

Actually, Vettel is one of the worst drivers being WC. :tongue: If Webber or Vettel - a more or less average driver - can fight for WC every other driver could have won it. It's the car being the fastest, nothing else. Remember Jenson Button last year? Moreover, I've never seen a drivers doing that many stupid errors during a season. They were lucky because the car was constantly fast.
I'm bad a bad loser, I know but I'm not with RB or Vettel on this one. I actually had some sympathy for Webber claiming to be forced to no. 2 status and dishonored by the team.
But it has been a quite amusing season this year somehow.
Just my 0.02.
So I haven't given my 2cents to the season finale but here it is:
Oh and Ted made good on his end of the bet and treated me out to food and drinks last friday. He's a very nice guy and glad to see he's a prime member.
- Sad to see Webber miss out on WDC
- Kind of strange to see Webber's car struggle for pace and Vettel's flying.
- Happy to see Alonso lose, especially after his bullshit remarks and gestures to Petrov on the cool down lap.
- Button was impressive during the season and wasn't over-shadowed my Hamilton.
- McLaren will definitely be strong next season but so will RBR, which should make for a fun season.
- I expect Schumi to do well, no more excuses.
[*]Abu Dhabi has to be one of the best tracks for spectating a race. The amenities are amazin and so are the international women that flock to the city during the F1 weekend.
I have some unfinished business to do: :redface: admit that I was wrong about JB fading into the background at Macca. I expressed strong skepticism one year ago right after JB joined them, mostly saying that he will be unexciting enough that the press will shred and 2nd guess him.
But, although he finished a distant 5th in the season, he lost a bunch of points thru no fault of his own, as many of you have pointed out. Anyway, I've always liked him even if I didn't respect him, but now, I am hopeful he'll be an interesting and major part of next season's excitement. :smile:
help yourself to as much crow as you can eat. :biggrin:
