In today’s round-up: Adam Parr says Williams would have boycotted a race in Bahrain.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“Had the Bahrain Grand Prix gone ahead, I don’t think we, and in fact I suspect even all the teams, would have gone.”
“I think young drivers are always looked at and regarded as the next thing to come onto the big stage, whether it’s sports cars or Formula cars or NASCAR. I think it has been the same for quite some time, and I think the young guys winning is a testament that the talent is there regardless of what the age is.”
“Ross [Brawn] joined over 1500 students graduating from the University of Northampton to receive an Honorary degree.”
“The added drama about the questionable circumstances of his death ?óÔé¼ÔÇØ namely a car that was not safe enough to be on the road ?óÔé¼ÔÇØadd a universal theme, about how power and money corrupt, and can destroy when left unchecked.”
