There’s a huge debate going on about Nelson Piquet Jnr’s crash in last year’s Singapore Grand Prix and some F1 drivers have been talking about the affair as well.
Rubens Barrichello made an interesting comparison between the Singapore controversy and the Austria '02 incident during the press conference: "But to get to that point, I was put into a situation in Austria which was the limit of the limit. There were eight laps of conversation, the conversation going on and things were said to me that I had to give up, but I had to give up in front of everyone, everyone knew what was going on there. It’s very, very sad. If that’s true, it’s very, very sad. The only thing I can see is that somebody wants Briatore’s head, that’s all I can see now, because it sounds very strange."
Nick Heidfeld's got quite a bit to say about the Singapore crash scandal: "I'm amazed that it took so long, that nearly a year later it becomes such a big issue, because immediately after the race already in the briefing everybody who was there in the paddock had the thought that it at least looked like it could have been on purpose, but just one year later and suddenly it becomes a big story."
"The national motoring authorities of Australia, Germany, Finland, Canada, Uganda, Jamaica, Netherlands, Sweden, South Africa, Ireland, Jordan, Peru, Switzerland and Turkey have written to fellow clubs expressing their backing for Vatanen, and urging others to add their support."
"Former Formula One driver Alex Zanardi is targeting a place on the Italian cycling team at the 2012 Paralympics." Go Alessandro!
Nigel Mansell on Jenson Button: "There's obviously something going on with him,. He's got to untighten himself. He's got to be careful and give a bit of thought to what's been happening."
