    On the flipside, had those positions been reversed, you’d have had the same level of moaning about it from Toto and Lewis.

    I love the fact it’s spiced up. It adds an edge of peril and animosity. Bring it on.

    True, and if I'm being honest, I would have screamed for Max to be punished rather than call it a racing incident if Lewis had gone flying into the barriers. :bandit:

    We all know Marko and Horner aren't the most pleasant pairing, though Toto has an edge to him, and if Niki was still there, well...!!

    Mind you, Horner is the only F1 team boss to offer me a job once, so I can't be too nasty about him.

    I guessed that , but fair play anyway . You obviously have / had good F1 contacts . You have mentioned before you have met Ron Dennis on more than one occasion :)

    In fairness, the Horner one was pre F1, when he was boss at Arden.

    How utterly ridiculous is this! Archaic, sexist rules. What dinosaurs are in charge of these things. They should ditch that rule straight away as what other reason is there for it than sexualising the athletes.

    The only reason to specify what is suitable clothing is to prevent an unfair advantage or for safety reasons....neither apply in this case. Amazed that this could happen today.

    Agree - it’s ridiculous to be honest and, I’m sure, puts a number of women off playing the sport. Mind you, when I worked in NYC in 2000, one of my (male) colleagues came in looking tired. I asked him why and he said he’d found the perfect sport, one which he’d watch 24/7 if he could and was looking forward to learning more about as soon as he could. When I asked him what it was ….. he grinned and said “Women’s beach volleyball” :emoticon-0102-bigsm
