Yeah, I discounted Button because I don’t think he is available, but forgot Maldonado won a race. In any case Maldonado isn’t the consistent performer that Kovalinen is. I think Heikki has improved quite a lot […]
I haven’t posted much lately. I haven’t watched much F1 lately either despite being a dedicated fan since I saw my first race on TV (Adelaide ’86). But I logged in just to say thank you for this article Keith.
@montreal95: You asked for a worse junior career. They were the terms you set out. I believe I’ve met them.
I’ve compared their open wheel careers. Wolff finished on the podium in some of her junior open wheel […]
DVC commented on the post, Webber "unlikely" to beat Barrichello's starts record 8 years, 6 months ago
The only other well known sport where men and women compete on equal terms is horse riding, it’s also about riding/piloting something, and if you look at the Olympics you’ll see that performances are pretty […]
Girls are pretty much equal in strength to boys until boys start to mature at around 11 or 12. Strength difference is less of an issue for the youngest competitors than it is for the older ones.
If you look into the history of motor racing I think you might find that there were actually more lady racers in the early days than there were 10 years ago. The situation has improved of late, but between the […]
DVC commented on the post, Red Bull gives up on team orders as Vettel admits he would defy them again 8 years, 6 months ago
Supposedly Webber’s KERS design is compromised by his height, and this regularly contributes to the poor starts. Webber has never been a good starter though – think of his time at Jaguar. And I would have thought […]

Not many people would get that, but I wanted you to know I did.

So, in your opinion people are voting on emotion rather than looking at the specifics of the situation and forming a judgement based on that? What evidence do you have for your analysis?
You know it’s stereotypes that drive discrimination. Even positive stereotypes can be bad when considering the situation as a whole. Try not to generalise based on gender. Focus on the talents of the individual.
@david-a This is going to sound silly to you, but I think it is in keeping with Webber’s character: I think he was making a point to the team. He was saying, I can follow orders.
If he had raced with Vettel after […]
@david-a: Yes, he defended the position vigorously after coming out of the pits, and managed to do it on cold tyres. If you’ve been following the details, then that’s usually the point at which if team orders are […]
