In an interview with the Australian Associated Press, Mark Webber has slammed the current USF1/Stefan Grand Prix situation as embarrassing.
“It’s embarrassing. It’s incredible that people who haven’t yet turned a wheel take part in grands prix. It’s the sort of stuff from Mickey Mouse or Tom and Jerry. It would make more sense to field (MotoGP champion) Valentino Rossi with his bike on the grid.”
As a driver who the Stefan Grand Prix Blog has a lot of time for and as a former Chairman of the GPDA, Marks comments are the first to come from an F1 insider regarding the 13th entry debacle.
ESPN also quotes former World Championship Niki Lauda. “A Swiss newspaper quoted former world champion Niki Lauda as describing the pre-season situation as “chaos”. ”
A quick check of the vidiprinter, and still no news from the FIA or Stefan GP.
