Could someone give me a reasonable, logical and incontestable reason why the opinion of Jody Scheckter is more relevant and deserve to be several days in the first page than the opinion of Jacque Villeneuve ?
Statistics says: Both ex driver in formula 1 , both have driven legendary cars, both are Formula 1 world Champions.
If we want to look more careful and deeply the opinion of Jacques Villeneuve could be more relevant. Why ?
Becuase he was a formula 1 racer till 2006, he raced against : Alonso, Button, Raikkonen, R&M Schumacher, Coulthard, Hakkinen, Frentzen, Fisichella, Montoya…etc
He is more connected with this era of formula 1, while Scheckter stop racing in 1980…different epok, different drivers, different cars…..different opinions.
Anyway the only 2 differences are that Scheckter is from South America and spoke bad for Alonso while Villeneuve is from Canada and spoke bad for Vettel.
I think you all have misunderstood @catracho504, he is not saying that he don’t like the site (other way he won’t be here). He is just saying that there isn’t a equal treatment or a one way standart.
He is just making a critic and criticism should be always welcome, also for this site. Everyone that make me a critic (without offending !) is welcome. Critics are only to make you better not worse…like normal there are good or bad critics and the one that manages this site can decide if this critic is good one or a bad one.
I personally would have chosen not to publish neither Scheckter neither Villeneuve. thats my opinion.
Anyway @catracho504 in my personal opinion the reason why @keithcollantine have published the Scheckter article is not because he hate Alonso…but because there are a few Famous people (in formula 1) who crtic Alonso (maybe only Scheckter…:)..) so by publishing this, people will be more curious and more attractive for the article…In the other hand there are some people that have said the same thing about Vettel…the last was Coulthard yesterday who said he should change team to gain respect…Brundle, Niki Lauda, Hamilton…etc..There is a worldwide opinion that vettel need to prove more to gain Alonso’s respect….So the article of Vettel wouldn’t be interesting for this point of view. This is my personal opinion or maybe i would have done the same in his position…:)
About the Villeneuve opinion, i don’t agree but i also don’t disagree…simply i don’t know yet. I need from Vettel more years, and probably drive Ferrari or Mclaren and have the pressure (even when you have a bad car) to win…Vettel will probably deliver as Alonso, maybe better, maybe worse…i dont know..onyl time will tell…for now i have a huge amount of respect for a triple WDC, he had the car and he did it…and it’s not easy anyway
