Worry not of the car, but worry for the driver....    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-29-2004 02:22

You can always try to develop the car throughout the season...but if you are stuck with a lousy driver or your competitor has a good driver+good car combo, you are screwed.

BAR is denying the opposition whatever little advantage they may have, and try to pull away from the competitors as best they could. Denying Williams ANT is a good move (though dirty, BUT anybody will not hesitate to pull the same stunt too...say do you think Ferrari will give up MS , or IF Williams is given an Opportunity to screw with with ferrari , do you think they will not do it, or ferrari too)...Very political, you can't be a gentleman in this arena, so hell, BAR is giving all for the next season. It is about time BAR wins and regain its former glory. BAR needs to bare its fangs.....BAR has been too ,mild.

Think about this, if Dave Richards hadn't been an A**hole, I think JB or ANT is with Williams for 2005 and maybe 2006, BAR can kiss the championship goodbye.....

so a little necessary evil is needed to maintain the edge. Why do you wish to fight with one arm tied to the back and handicap yourself.

It coulda been worst: JB and AD in W-BMWs for both 2005 and 2006 (when AD would have gotten enough race experience).

I coulda been too self-righteous in my "sermon" on another thread. I was just sympathizing with AD, talented and bored. Sports has become business, I guess.
