F1 Fanatic round-up
In the round-up: Martin Whitmarsh defends Lewis Hamilton’s performance in 2011.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“Such is the level of his ambition that he’s his own sternest critic. Sometimes, therefore, when things don’t go quite right for him, he lets it get to him. We saw that last year sometimes.”
“I was a little concerned about finding the sport had really moved on. But frankly, on Monday and Tuesday I wasn’t surprised. I didn’t feel any difference.”
“[DRS] is somewhat artificial – especially the way that it is regulated. With the way it is allowed to be used, it seems like the driver you are trying to overtake is naked.”
“Mieres, who started 17 world championship grands prix during the early 1950s, passed away in Uruguay, where he had lived for a number of years.”
“The situation at Force India is worrying in that it is a team with no visible means of support.”
