AC/DC ? In another planet maybe ! RB loves
"Zez Di Camargo & Luciano", a kind of romantic country (argh!)... that seens to fit
most in his personality than a bunch of drunken guys playing guitars...

Sparky should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

How about this:

This could turn into a chicken / egg type thing, so forgive me...

These figures represent yearly salaries in British Pounds

Michael Schumacher 19.1m
Rubens Barrichello 3.5m

Mika Hakkinen 6.3m
David Coulthard 1.7m


Is it just possible that the teams are behind the No.1 drivers because of the money it's cost them (... or their sponsors )?

Or is it that the driver has to earn the wages by producing the goods the previous year? If so, why does MS command THREE times what the World Champion does?

I suggest that it's simply a case of a team doing all it can for it's primary player, and the second man (the substitute if you like) is there to clean up after a mess!

Geez, I must be loosing my mind! I thought that that Rubins lost it in a turn, then did a really bad donutand a half, then went across a bunch of really soggy grass at slow speed. That lead to his car breaking. Thanks for enlightening me about the subversive goings on at Ferrari. How could I have missed it?

If Ferrari wanted RB to play second fiddle to Michael Schumacher, like you all seem to think they do... well RB would get equal equipment - so as to stop the McLaren's taking away points from Michael and IF he was in front, just move over.

that hasn't happened. RB's car broke (some say it was a driver error, I don't think so) cars break you know

Well it was probably a macaroon hacker with a Gr092 remote control flipping the hydraulic servos so cubehead-jawbone could take the lead and then give it over to no more tears so that the reasonable theory of highest $$$driver gets +++equipment proved true. But ego gets in the way. Dustbin just can't win, the macaroons and his own team is against him. Poor sap.
