@force-maikel Sites like GpUpdate (with Facebook comments, even) have found themselves a lot of people who regularly make stupid comments, but what I read yesterday was almost as low as the facebook comments on there after last year’s title was decided..
I’ve found other sites like F1today still have a lot of slamming and hating to read through to read a good comment..
I don’t necessarily think he made the wrong choice not joining the Red Bull programme, but his manager is only seen hanging around Hulkenberg most of the time. Hulkenberg found himself at Williams just before the exodus of sponsors and was promptly replaced. Basically, there are no teams like Williams between 06 and 10 around anymore, who can afford to hire a youngster without money.
Still, Frijns himself uses the words ‘luck’, ‘chance’ and variations thereof too often as well. He was quoted as saying ‘I am free now and I hope someone will give me a chance’. If you ran into an old friend from school with a degree but no job who had that attitude for finding a job, anyone would tell him to saddle up and look harder. Frijns needs to look harder, find his Keke Rosberg or Huub Rotthengatter. Hakkinen and Verstappen benefited a lot from having a personal manager; I think Frijns would too.
I don’t know if it’s true about his manager holding off corporations, but I wonder how a guy like Michel Perridon will plaster Trust logos on a AutoGp car for a Verstappen demo in Rotterdam, but won’t sponsor Frijns.
