More from Max, hypocrite, Mosley

From Autosport:

Mosley has continued to deny that he dislikes Dennis, but does admit to having issues with the McLaren boss' approach to F1.

"I quite like him," he said. "But I do despise – I think that's
probably the right word – his attitude to Formula One, when he says,
for example, that he's passionate about Formula One. That's not true.

"He's passionate about McLaren finishing first and second in every
race, which is his job, but it's not the same thing as being passionate
about formula one and it's foolish to pretend that it is."

So Max's version of "passionate about F1" is to "give Ferrari every possible advantage so every other F1 teams have to work extra to win"?

How can Formula One justify blatant double standards?

Excellent article from Martin Brundle on Sunday Times. I just cannot believe how arrogant Max Mosely is behaving all these years and no one would stand up to him? I dearly love F1 and have been following it for over 20 years and despite being the most exciting racing last season, I feared the muddling and politicking of Max Mosely had damaged F1's image in the general public beyond repair.

QotD: Luxury Wish List

If money were no object, which five luxury items would you rush right out and buy? 
Submitted by lorilyn.

I'll assume "money were no object" means infinite amount of money. Then I'll just have to buy out the McLaren F1 team. Mind you, I don't want to manage the whole F1 team and its complex operation. I just want to own the team so I can have trackside access and inside information on what's going on.

The other 4 items are just things that keep me occupy when I am not traveling between races or not attending test sessions, so really are of no consequences.

QotD: The Big To Do List

What's on your "do before I die" list?
Submitted by Caroline.

Spent a day at the Nurburgring circuit in a fast car, ideally the McLaren F1, but a BMW/Mercedes Benz/Audi/Lotus will suffice.

Maiden Win

Congratulation to Jensen Button (is his name weird or what?) for winning his first ever Grand Prix in Hungary. About bloody time too! At least he didn't throw it away like a certain Scottish driver in a race leading Williams down under. Personally I prefer Kimi Raikkonen to win but I can't have what I want all the time. And I think karma was at work today because after Alonso went off the race with a loose wheel nut and second place was a certainty for Schumacher, he retired late in the race through his own doing! I bet Flavio must be laughing his head off in the Renault motorhome when he saw Schumacher retired.

QotD: Desktop Show and Tell

What is your current computer desktop image? Let's see it!

Well, let's see. The laptops at home both have pictures of McLaren. JPM on the PC, Kimi on the PowerBook. At work, both monitors have pictures of a yellow Lotus Elise, each from a different angle.

They are all due for a change, since well, JPM no longer drives for McLaren and Kimi probably will not for next season. And the chance of me owning a Elise in the next few years are as good as me winning the lottery…
