Mar 15th 2010 2:48PM "a dream team of the two reigning world champions, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button."
Nov 13th 2008 1:11AM What's with the Messiah-seeking obsession? What's the logic behind the idea of every problem in the world being fixable just by finding the right man to fix it? The problems of auto industry, America and global economics won't be fixed by a single person, even if Jesus was voted President. No, I won't even bother reading the article. The "all we need is a savior" thinking is childish and downright stupid.
And, by now, the fact that star CEOs don't always work, should be clear to everyone who has read the news. Just because someone did it once doesn't mean he always will.
Nov 3rd 2008 4:36PM Almost choked again. Definitely, he's not the legend in the making many want to believe he is. Champion or not.
Aug 14th 2008 3:05PM Last time I checked, Alonso was two-time world champion. People around here sound like he's a nobody who never won anything against any worthy opponents.
Some beat Schumacher, some choke 18 points in the last two races and lose the title. Not everybody can.

Alonso signed with McLaren right after winning his first championship. At that time, there was the feeling around the paddock that Renault could leave F1 -yes, even after winning both the drivers' and builders' championships. While Alonso might have rushed his decision, it's not like he did anything amazing. He was in a position to secure himself a seat at the most succesful team ever, or he could stay in a dismantling project and find himself without a competitive car by the end of 2006. What would most of us have done?
May 27th 2008 5:03PM You guys love to hate Alonso. He's not the most likeable driver out there, but he's been a lot more sincere at all times than most people in the F1 world ever where, most notably his ex-teammate (are there really teammates in F1?) Hamilton.
Hamilton was given undeserved advantages by his team in qualifying and race strategy, which obvoiusly pissed Alonso off. Only he still obeyed, instead of forcing the team like Hamilton did at Hungary.
So what if Alonso bitches and moans when he's not happy about something? Hamilton did the same a lot (Monaco 2007, for example), only he never had much to complain about, given the fact that he was the first rookie ever to be given the #1 driver status in a winning team. Alonso was exactly the same when he left Renault, and they still wanted him back. People and the press love to show him as the evil guy (if only he were German and had a moustache...), but it seems he's better liked by the people who really deal with him every day than you could expect. He's blunt, he doesn't try to be liked by everyone and say the nicest things all the time, but he's the kind of co-worker I'd much rather have, instead of a smiling backstabber.
Mar 14th 2008 6:01PM Ridiculous. Not even a millionaire rapper would buy this thing, even if it cost a tenth of the price.
Jan 10th 2008 9:25AM God, the headlights look like a Peugeot 407's. Bad.
Dec 30th 2007 5:19AM While I'm all against cruelty against animals, and understand the feelings of anyone trying to ease the life of these animals, I can't help but feel that this is a bit over the top.
Taking care of these animals -being among their needs vast protected spaces, loads of food, transport from wherever theyy were first- looks extremely expensive, and there is a lot of wildlife in need of preserving out there.
