    You’re fault Ned for using IE… the internet really has progressed ;)

    This thread has become a bit nonsensical, if, in not the least a bit off topic. This is not a place for personal vendettas. The original poster had a complaint addressed to the owner of this site. In the end he was most gracious in his departure.

    Please everyone learn from this.

    “I don’t like to create drama, which I believe I’m creating here. So I’ll just stop contributing to the site completely. It’s incredibly painful to see this attitude because I’ve been here pretty much since the beginning of the website and I remember a different person running the blogs. Good luck with the website, you seem to be going places and the site’s getting a lot of popularity. Congratulations on that.”

    He (Cyanide) doesn’t like to create drama, something that a few posters could learn from. True that it’s not the same site it was four years ago, but we aren’t the same people we were then and neither is the site. We all grow up, lose friends, change and become different relative to our values and this site is no different.

    I remember you then Cyanide and I’m sorry to see you go.

    Cheers, Alex

    About four years ago I was trying to find a way to follow F1 races because I couldn’t get them on TV. I found the live blog and thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Been here ever since whether you like it or not. ;)

    Indeed , I’d go so far to say that DC was Macca’s Rubens Barachello.

    Ned… if DC had been up to snuff, he would have won a lot more GP’s for Macca. He drove for them 9 bloody seasons and had just 13 wins.

    I don’t think I’m being harsh… I’m being honest.

    I’m not sure where you are going with this Ned? But I’d say the best Macca line up was Bruce Maclaren and Senna. then Prost and Lauda, Fittapaldi and Alonso, Lewis and Kimi, James Hunt and Jochen Mass, John Watson and Dan Gurney, Jody Sheckter and David Hobbs and Keke Rosberg and Jacky Ickx… to name a few

    Worst was David Coultard and Michale Andretti, then Heikki Kovalainen and Pedro de la Rosa, Stephan Johansen and Mark Blondell, Andrea de Cesaris and Alexander Wurz… then the bad drivers names really become obscure… Macca historically seems to hire some very very good drivers… More good than bad and quite a few well above average drivers.

    There is a lovely gritty edge that Hawke has in common with Webber. He could pull it off.
