Are Ralf and DC even worthy of Minardi seats?
Probably not, I suspect even the lamentable

After all, their

as poor as usual. I've
enough times already, so today's fish in the barrel is Ralf.
Despite this mediocre performance, there are still persistant stories
about Ralf re-signing for

frankly if I was Frank, I'd be more concerned about
losing sponsorship money and championship points (and hence
Bernie's money) than a minor cut in an under-performing and
over-priced driver's salary. Even if Schumi-lite does follow
advice he's being given
he's still a long way from being truly competitive.
Fortunately it seems like Frank is already looking very

tells me that the FIA allows you to change the number 1 driver

I suspect I'm a member of one of the last generations who
will escape immortality. Will my children ever grow old and
die naturally? Sometimes I wonder.

Proof that stupidity is hereditary?
Maybe it is...
I don't know what the solution is, oral contraceptives in alco-pops and
Sunny D or cutting the Kings Ferry bridge towing Sheppey out to sea
and sinking it would be the populist suggestions. They might work, but
I would suggest that education is probably the better solution, but what
should one do when you can't even get the bastards into school?
