Not my cup of cake
from the Autosport article Di Montemelonhead said "I prefer the champion, even if matured, to the mediocre driver, even if he's young. Our circus needed some great input"
What is wrong with F1 that young drivers just can't get a chance? This has been one of the running sores in the sport for years where the old boys just won't retire (Barichello, Coulthard, Webber, Trulli, Fissichella etc, etc) and the teams take them on as they are seen as a "safe pair of hands". I'd rather see a grid made up of hungry young chargers than a bunch of old chaps driving round for their mega buck salaries with their ambitions safely filed away in the "no longer relevant" draw. Grrr!
Does anyone know who manages whom in F1? I think this may be part of the problem as the drivers agents will get a bigger pay day from placing a Webber or a Fissi than they would from a Grosjean or a Buemi.
