Wow, exciting Formula One yesterday, shame I only caught ITV’s late highlights (busy working in the allotment all day), so I found myself watching one incident after another without time between them to straighten out in my head exactly what had happened.
Anyway, depressing afterwards to see the smug Saint Coulthard laying into Sato and BAR. As I said on this message board,
So, David Coulthard has “slammed BAR for not retiring Sato”. Surely this isn’t the same David Coulthard who drove half a Monaco grand prix two years ago with smoke coming out of his car? And then went on to win it?
He also called BAR “immature” for not spotting Sato’s engine problems. I think what he means is that BAR haven’t got as much experience of spotting engine failures as McLaren. Fair point. NOBODY has as much experience of engine failures as McLaren.
And, excuse me if I’m wrong, but hasn’t Kimi blown up on track on at least one occasion this season, complete with plumes of smoke and everything. Why the hell didn’t “mature” McLaren pull him off the track before he wrecked somebody else’s afternoon?
