Public speaking

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/87915

This article will be of no interest to you, and I'm OK with knowing that. Basically boiled down, Mark Webber is in a great position to be the world champ and Red Bull isn't telling driver #2 to do whatever it takes to help him.

The part that interests me is the way people speak. Mark Webber had a huge crash into the wall last week and allowed his car to coast across the track taking out another driver. Gerhard Berger (ex F1 driver from the 80's) is saying he coasted across the track intentionally trying to take out other drivers. Here's his response to that accusation

"I'd never put myself or anyone else in any more danger than I need to. I've lost control of the car and [Berger's saying] all of a sudden I've regained control of the car and try and take people out... I'm a genius, aren't I?"

The part that bugs me is when he sarcastically says "I'm a genius, aren't I?" Christ man, you're supposed to be this cool, smooth chap who doesn't lose his cool. I'm of the opinion that you should never let the world see that you're rattled. Webber should have said what happened, then allow everybody else to come to the conclusion that Berger is a jack ass. Most of us already have figured that out, and those that haven't or won't, who needs 'em?

As for the team not supporting him, thats their prerogative. It sucks for Webber, but publicly speaking out against them isn't going to change their minds.
