  2. What team, in their right mind, would hire a guy that talks like that about his team?
    He thinks a bit too highly of himself, me thinks... :-D

    What a douche!
    I hope they suspend him for Brazil. He sounds toxic for the team.

    Not selling himself too well either.

  4. I suspect given his comments, he'll get 'benched' for Brazil. That is as close to a 'home' GP so it'd really hurt.
    Pastor really needs to get a grip.
    Does he really think in a sport where even a single Constructor's point equates to millions, Williams would be that stupid to sabotage their own car...just to spite him?

    uh...yeah. I think the term "don't let door hit you in the ass on the way out" serves in this situation.

    I,somehow,was expecting this kind of comments before i click the link ...

    The guy was a fast as caterhams and marussias,at least admit that something was wrong !
     
  14. Everyone had troubles getting the tyres to temperature, plus Maldonado got traffic so he couldn't do a clean lap.

    That's why he was slow. No need for tampering, and Williams would not benefit from that at all.

    Maybe Williams need to look at it from both sides of the coin, how would anyone of them feel if it were them in Maldonado's shoe's, replaced by a much more experienced, competitive driver, that would kill off any drivers enthusiasm to go hard and do well in the final races of the season.

    Ok so he should of had a plan "B" in case this occurred, and we all know he's developed a rep as a bit of a reckless pilot at times, but making claims that the team messed with the tyre pressures is a little pathetic, surely Pastor could of come up with a better excuse than that, sour grapes I think, but understandable in the circumstances.
     
  17. His sponsors have much more money in their pockets than he has sense in his head.
    Besides, what did you expect from a Hugo Chavez's favourite? That he will be a men of a great intellect?
     
  18. Give him the sack. And put Susie Wolff in for Brasil. :whistling:

  20. F*@K... well, if I was Frank I'd have suspended him for the USGP race then sack him today. Well out of order that Pastor is....
