Another fine mess you've got Minardi into Mr Stoddart
God this bloke amazes me. He makes the cock up and blames others for HIS mistakes.
Look Mr Stoddart you did'nt get the car ready in time, thats it period!
People think I'm always persecuting Paul, well can you REALLY blame me? Look the old Minardi, even if they had the late Cosworth takeover, would have shut up, put their heads down and worked like hell to get the car ready for Melbourne. If they made it or not would be immaterial, but I can tell you something now, you certainly would have got a lot more sympathy for your cause. Certainly more than shouting your mouth off about how you had no chance of getting the car ready for Melbourne and sitting on your hands RELYING on the fact that you'd get special dispensation to race. This is NOT how Minardi should be run, it's f**king embarrassing. Pissed off....? Too bloody right I'm pissed off, this team has been going down the tubes for far too long. I hope he jacks it all in and lets Minardi either be sold off to someone who cares about what Minardi stands for or lets it die with respect.
Hows the new sponsors going to feel about this? Hows the drivers sponsors going to feel knowing that they paid for 17 races for their drivers yet are only going to get a maximum of 16 races for their money? Would they get their money back?
They'd deserve their money back!
It must be so disheartening for the boys in the garage always working hard to be subjected to this.
Blaming it all on other people Mr Stoddart is not being a responsible team owner, so EVERY problem seems to be not HIS problem.....he always wants everyone else to give him hand outs, give special dispensation etc etc. F1 ain't a charity, if you can't play with the big boys....pack up and bloody go home.
