No worries. Just winding up my fellow thread participants. I have no fear that SWSNBN will get anything but maybe a test drive as a pure publicity stunt.

If Miss Thang had a better Indy Car record I could see it as an outside possibility. But she doesn't. At some point these teams expect results. Then again there's Pastor.. So who knows.

Clearly I have no shame, again bringing SWSNBN into the conversation. :-)

I usually find most decrees from The Alonso to have a truthiness vibe to them, but this time I think his exaltedness is practicing a bit of revisionist history.

http://en.espnf1.com/ferrari/motorsp...ry/173647.html

He is probably trying to convince R. Dennis that Fred/Lewis The Sequel could work, in the event that Louise bolts Merc. Right......

I won't post a link, but the Macca rumor dujour concerns Seb.

Clearly we are in one of the silliest silly seasons in recent memory. Grosjean even weighed in during an interview that all hinges on what The Alonso does, not that I recall Romain in the conversation as a potential move candidate.

About fargin' time.

http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2014/0...r-you-are-out/

This is the first time I have have read a quote from Toto where the subject of sacking either of his drivers comes up. No more nonsense "there will be consequences" BS.

In my view, you can't have two more or less equal drivers fighting for the WDC on the same team. It will always end in tears. You could reasonably argue that the situation at Merc this is an anomaly. Had Hamilton have 100% reliability, would Rosberg have beaten Hamilton in a straight fight even once? Even Monaco was the result of something outside of Hamilton's control. Had he taken pole, surely he would have won.

Last edited by BGLeduc; 09-05-2014 at 08:32 AM. Reason: Because a pole is not a poll.

Tack,
That was funny. The pic is so good that it almost looks like it was taken yesterday.

BG,
Man, you are wrapped up in this Real House ....... I mean Drivers of F1. Alonso isn't going anywhere. He wants both the money and prestige. He only gets that with Ferrari.


Bond,
Thanks for the funniest post in the last week. Saying Alonso is the best driver to only win two WDCs is classic.

I wasn't posting to incite, but if you insist.

There have been six drivers to win the title twice. They are Ascari, Clark, Emmo, Hill, Mika and Alonzo. I would say that Alonzo is better than Mika. The other four I never saw race, so I would never be so bold as to say Alonzo is better than them. Jim Clark is widely considered to be the best driver of the '60s. The others were also considered great.

To that I respectfully say…...Bull Sh*t. :-)

He already has money and prestige. As Bud says to Gordon Gecko in Wall Street: How many yachts can you water-ski behind? How much is enough, huh?

By this point in his career, it would seem that what he wants more than anything is at least another WDC, and like most drivers at the sharp end of the grid, he will do whatever it takes to get it. There may be big moves for 2015 or there may not be, but if Fred or any of his peers get a whiff that their chances of another WDC are better elsewhere, then they move to what ever team is willing to write the big check.

Is that confirmed? I saw a vague reference to it, but did not believe it could be true.

I guess even self styled royalty can be shown the door if the men paying his salary don't think he is getting the job done.

+1 I think he would drive for free if he was guaranteed the best car on the grid.
Reminds me of the story where Senna did exactly that. I believe it was McLaren. Story goes Senna was at a dinner function and approached the guy running McLaren and told him he would drive for free if he was given a ride.
