A driver has a run of success and rather than being aplauded like they should be, instead there is a backlash, it starts when idiots get the idea that they should hold the opposite opinion of a driver to everyone else just for the sake of being different and individual, soon everybody is at it and then the idiots all hold the same opinion anyway, and it becomes the fashion to denounce every --- driver without thinking.
The trouble with F1 becoming more popular is that it has drawn in a vast quantity of idiots and armchair racing drivers who pass themselves off as 'fans', the majority of you know sod all about what it takes to win at the top level so save your stupid judgements.
None of the drivers on the F1 grid got where they are without talent, especially in the case of Webber, being one of the drivers who worked his way up the traditional way instead of being groomed by an F1 team on a fast track from Karting. Sometimes things and people are highly rated because they are actually good!
Discussion would be so much easier if stupid people aren't allowed opinions. I'm sick to the back teeth of the stupid attitudes an opinions that the majority of F1 'fans' hold these days. Too much of an obsession with underdogs.
You all need to stop talking out of your uninformed arses.
Extremely well put. Every driver of a Formula car is quick in out and out terms and generally would all be closely matched in the same car. The only real difference is as Aryton once put it:
'Every driver is fast, but only the good ones are fast all the time'
