@prisoner-monkeys I like your definiton of Palmer: “he’s nowhere near as good as he seems to think he is.”
I also agree with you on the other point, Palmer has outspokenly criticised Cecotto at Monaco and Canamasas at Silverstone on Twitter, and was fined 12000€ for calling the Spaniard a ******* idiot (although I’m not sure when/where) and, to believe him, he was almost banned for it.
As I wrote in my latest blog:
Palmer’s fine was probably not out of place as the rules are written, but when the stewards close both eyes in front of dishonourable driving and then penalise the understandable reaction of the victim, which also happened off track rather than on track (Cecotto’s Malaysia foolery was a reaction to Bird blocking him), something must be done to change things.
Returning to the topic, GP2 has confirmed on Facebook (that’s where I saw it) that the glitches have been fixed and they mentioned no other issue and added that we should finally hear team radios. I’m sure they could be useful or hilarious in certain situations! Imagine what the drivers were saying after Cecotto’s Monaco crash…
