OK, I'm giving notice. I'm officially throwing my hat in the ring as a Lance hater. I could tolerate him as a pay-driver when Williams had to make tough decisions and do what they had to do. But cr@p now Lance's dad buys an entire F1 team just to ensure Lance has a ride? This goes way beyond pay-driver territory.
This is an unprecedented level of helicopter-parenting that has never previously occurred in human history! Seriously! Why didn't Dad just buy the Yankees so Lance could play shortstop?
OK, I think I will have plenty of hating nourishment over the next few years. Buckle up...
But it does mean FI survive. This above all.
There are tales of other byers, but there always are, and how many actually come through?
Who ever bought in would have wanted their own driver, and to be fair to Lance, he has the worse car in the field and only his team mate to compare him against. I think he did come to F1 too soon, but he is here now, so see how he does. He has been better than I expected, but heat is not high praise
We are standing on the shoulders of Giants. So don't kick.
