Problem is blue nose, it is this kind of ramping of him that caused my original comments. As I said, I don't know him, but several comments like "as soon as he gets going he will be at the sharp end" and, "he should be in the top 5 in testing" just does him damage if/when he doesn't do it, for whatever reason.
If he is good, let him show us on track rather than him/his friends/his fans telling us.
Freddie, What is the problem? Why can't people go 'forum chatting / speculating' on TT about one driver who they know and rate?
It is absolutely no different to all the Fortec this, Suzie that. Comtec Renault the other twaddle touted on this thread.
The one good thing is that there are fewer members participating in Other Single Seaters than all the tosh you get on the F1 Forum. I couldn't give a to$$ about whether Schuey is better than Pantano, or 'did you hear that Juan Pablo doesn't like Ralfy baby'.
I still believe that motor racing success is mainly down to money. If you put the 'slow' F1 drivers in the 'fast' F1 cars and vice versa, the results would be much the same - in relation to the cars, but reversed by drivers.
The above holds true for FR, FF1600, or whatever. There are probably, hundreds of humanoids in the world, who would totally eclipse Schuey's 'achievements' if they had the opportunity, or ££££££s to do it. But they would need to want to do it and probably never would want to anyway.
So let's just get on with participating in 'our' forum world', but please don't take everything so seriously. I love my motor racing and always will, but in the overall scheme of things, what does it matter?
Come back to the forum soon Comtec Renault, it is in dire need of some serious Lewis type 'winding up'
Dismounts soapbox and heads off to put the kettle on.
The beer smiley thing is the closest I could find to a steaming mug of tea and a digestive.
