    56 year old guy, wants to build an F1 team. Sounds bit optimistic but not unrealistic.

    Has plans to be the other driver....ok now things start to get weird. Yes he´s 56 and plans to take one of the seats.
    Some quotes from his site, i laughed so hard at some of these...


    Great....this GOD thing again... when teams goes bad, let´s pray...


    Maybe in your head.


    Will driver anything except those. He will "turn down the offer"................................


    Thinks F1 drivers are lazy. Remember he´s 56 years old.


    Some more lala-land stuff.


    As i said, he´s 56 years old.


    I don´t even know what to say....


    Here i started to realize that the guy is dement.

    He´s dissing Scott Speed, Danica Patrick and says things like "who in their right mind.."
    But thinks signing himself as an F1 driver while hitting 60 years soon is a good idea.

    Lol that joke isn't even possible physically, haha

    But bring him on with his team. Always fun to have such people in Formula One. At least he is an outspoken character. Something Formula 1 really lacks.

    Rumors say that a certain Bernie E. will be the second driver of the team.

    Don't really understand knocking the guy because he believes in God, but that aside, I don't understand this fellow either. He wants to crush the mystique surrounding F1... says that F1 drivers don't work hard... okay. He just sounds like some dude that watched a race once on TV and thinks he can do it because it looks easy.

    Shame.

    Everyone can believe in what they want but you do not incorporate a fictional character as some form of backing if stuff goes wrong.

    "With GOD everything is possible" will not work when applying for money.

    Hampus, I get where you're coming from, but if that's how he wants to approach sponsors, then let him. Like I said, I just don't see the need to go jumping down his back for something like that.

    I'm not going to get too far into this, as I know this is a sensitive subject, but there were dozans and dozans of claims this guy made on his website--many much more relavent to this topic than his mentioning of God--yet that's the very first one you quote. All I'm saying, for a fictional character, He seems to have quite an effect on you.

    In (certain parts of) the US, it just might :rolleyes:

    I'd also like to point out that faith and a high technology sport like F1 do not not necessarily have to be mutually exclusive. Just think of Senna or Massa.

    My fingers are itching to comment on that one, but I'm going to steer clear of it one since it won't lead to anything anyway :p

    Yes i know it might seem like it but that was more coincidence then a conscious move how hard that might be to believe from me a.k.a Judas :)

    Interesting how you reacted as well. One quote was about God and you reacted on that.
    Should i exclude it just because some might get offended?

    Yea i know, but America is slightly different then the rest of the world :)
    We don´t have our prime minister saying god put him there nor do we have the words "in god we trust" printed on our money.

    Yea sure i know Senna and some other were religious, but i have yet to this day seen anyone build a company with God as a form of backup when **** goes wrong.
    Senna would be an example of that actually.

    "It is very naive to think that F1 drivers are anything but the "privileged elite" born with a silver spoon in their mouth""

    He cannot have heard about Hamilton for example. The only reason (apart from his talent) Hamilton is in F1 is thanks to his father and family.
    Working something like three jobs to pay for everything.


    I can´t even imagine how it was for guys like Alonso who really had to fight to get into F1.

    Indeed. He severely underestimates just how much any racing driver has to go through to even get a chance at competing in F1.

    I really really want to see that guy drive in F1. Typical American ignorance, and besides, the best part will be if he finishes behind Karthikeyan. (If he actually finishes a race)
