Ah!!! good stuff through my relative, you are inviting trouble;), that is for sure.
That driver is driving in the middle because there was no blue flag rule penalty at that time, I think in 93' Eddie was been slapped by Senna for the same kind of incident. Right???
Its easy to say things like what you are saying when anyone's favourite driver got the taste of this but the reality is these cars are faster then the real backmarkers would be of 80's and 90's and that is what is creating situations like Monaco and Montreal, if these guys are slower then it is easy to pass them then it is now.
Minardi was in the sports for 20 years and they enters as a backmarker and remains as a backmarker till the end of them as Minardi team in 2005. From 2006 ToroRosso starting to gain some pace and in 2008 they have their first win, nowadays they are qualifying in top 15 most of the time.
Certainly, USF1 and HRT don't deserve to be in F1 and they are been allowed because of stupid decision but you have to remember that FOTA has agreed to provide help to these new teams, now I don't know what kind of help they have agreed but general public it means that they agreed to provide help in every possible way within the rules. What they have the big teams done in that regards, can you please name those things that are been done.
Prodrive then why not submit for this season, the reason was they don't have the finances in place for this season, the question is if they don't have the finances even after one year, how could they enter in the F1 a year earlier??? Also ProDrive has a history too they are almost certain in 2008 but can't make it because they want a customer car and Williams was against that.
At the moment a midfield team even before the BMW partnership Sauber is having trouble with Ferrari engine and Ferrari is not been able to provide them a solution.
As for the next season entry I have said that Nicholas Todt is already in discussion with Peter Sauber for buying the team in case he is not been awarded the entry, and certainly his father knows about this so the chances are Epsilon will be the 13th team, and Nick Todt will have Sauber at his disposal. The only delay at the moment is because of Bernie who is trying his very best to save HRT for the next season, otherwise FIA will announce 2 teams instead of 1.
As for your assessment of Button or Hamilton, leading the GP in an inferior car, well I think Hamilton can do this thing but Button will not, he already shown last season that when the car is inferior he is no good.
You will certainly like this game, that is for sure.
