He’s now got to go to the World Motor Sport Council to answer charges of bringing th sport into disrepute. Poor chap. But while the stories have been of politics and errors of judgement, we must not lose sight of the fact that so far in 2009 we’ve been given one hell of a start to a season. The racing has been superb. I mean really great. The playoff between KERS and non-KERS cars is enthralling in wheel to wheel combat.

There was eventually no firm conclusion because Marcus then went off the road and that proved something else altogether – our old friend from Finland remains not only interesting, but human as well! And, as an afterthought, that little incident must have been noted by Latvala with some small degree of satisfaction! … 23 Red Bull: winners if diffusers banned – lots to do if not!
