That is somewhat my point. There is someone who always thinks their narrow focus is all that matters. So yeah, someone somewhere within the F1 media circus would have something negative to say. No to mention some fans doing the same. It doesn't make them any less of an idiot however.

I get a kick out of hearing the tweets and comments from top level drag racers, Indycar racers, IMSA and Pirelli racers, and the good ole boys of NASCAR all commenting intelligently on the F1 race du jour. The reality, over here at least, is that a lot of drivers and gearheads are motorsports fans in general, and are far more interested in (and familiar with) with worldwide motorsport than most writers focused on their narrow sphere of interest.

Ok. I'm off my soapbox now and off to work the MotoGP race this weekend at COTA. Hope I didn't gore too many sacred cows.

Has anybody from the media bothered to interview Jense on this magnificent opportunity to run the mobile chicane in Monaco?

It's the same as in the magazine if you get a copy of that.

Basically it says F1 should get over itself if it thinks Alonso is daft for missing the Monaco GP to do this. It also remembers when Cooper and Brabham did it the season they were uncompetitive.

In the same magazine there is a long arryicle about how it came about. It basically started as an throwaway remark that got serious. It is interesting how quickly it happened.

Presumably it assures his monthly stipend from the team continues to land in his bank account....

Good, he should spend every second he can find burning around ovals, I see they have identified traffic as a particular problem too.

Great initiative, hope it is well done, looks promising.

He'll have no problem with the "circuit". Not being used to the traffic is the thing.
I think he will acclimate. Jimmy did in '63 & '65, Graham did in'66, Nigel did in '93.....
