    Frentzen leaves Jordan

    don't know how many of you are f1 fans but apparently Frentzen has left Jordan after a bust-up with Eddie and will be replaced by Riccardo Zonta, with immediate effect.

    God riddance I say. He totally lost the plot this year. But then Zonta isn't much of a player either, is he? And Jordan lost the plot too...

    Apparently he was left go due to a "serious fall out with boss Eddie Jordan" after the last Grand Prix. Zonta isn't much better, though. Bring back De Cesearis, I say.

    Thumbs down NNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Oh god help us, please, no, not Button, anyone but Button..

    At least Murray Walker's gone next year anyway, that's something. Everytime Button came on the screen the last couple years Walker would nearly have a coronary telling us all how fab he is. But even that was better than listening to those two morons RTE call commentators. Especially that foxy nana, what a dweeb. They come up with the same tat every week:

    "Oh, he's monstering him there."
    "He'll be in for a splash and dash."
    "Oh, the rate of attrition is enormous this week."


    I swear to god, I'll be going to Monaco next year and I'm going to hunt them down and kill them. Slowly...

    and don't forget

    lap 1 (after a quick take-off): he must be carrying a lighter fuel load and going on a three stop strategy

    some time later: looks like they're all on a two stop strategy this year

    some time later again: it looks like most teams are using the ame one-stop strategy as last year

    Thumbs up Murray & Martin show!

    Have pity on me being stuck with RTE commentary while wait for cable connection!

    BTW Murray Walker loves Button, Barrichello & Villeneuve. Those 3 can do no wrong whatever the senario!

    Walker works well with Brundle as Murray yaps on for a few mins about say Montoya & then Brundle calmly buts in the say "well actually thats Ralf Schumacher....." cue 30secs of silence

    Alesi for Jordan

    The latest from the F1 rumor mill is that Jean Alesi will join Jordan for the next race in Budapest. After this weekends race it seems that Peter Collins understudy is ready to replace him. Declan "in the pits" got far too much right, but definately has alot of potential.

    Any way, I'll be in Budapest for the GP in 3 weeks. Adam, set me up with the full James Bond kit and I'll keep a look out for the boys.
    I think a plan is just a list of things that don't happen - Mr Parker

    Thumbs down Eddie Jordan

    Firstly that Peter Collins stand in was way better than the original. Wouldn't be too hard but he was better none the less.

    Alesi will be like HHF in disguise, none too quick but will probably finish the races & maybe get a few points by default.

    I see Jordan going an about winning a championship in a couple of year time. When will he stop the spoofing as that not gonna happen!!!!

    Apparently it's all a planned thing, with young Japanese driver Sato coming in with the new Honda engines. By the looks of it, Jordan decided to sack HHF now rather than wait til the end of the season when he might find form again, and with BAR confirming their line up for next season, apparently the time was right for HHF to go. At least Aleisi might get a few finishes up for Jordan (he's been the most consistant driver this season).
    Still reckon De Cesaris is worth another bash.
