    I'm being very late to the party in regards to Roberto. His name was always there or there abouts at the time, I'd never invested any time in taking any interest in his story. Having had it brought to my attention I find it interesting and of course it has that Australian connection, which explains why his name was always there at the time.

    Listening to him talk on the 'Beyond The Grid' podcast one could tell he had an Australian connection and one wonders if at times his forthright nature may have been a handicap at securing the right drives? Equally that honest forthright demeanour would have been appreciated by his engineers.

    A very interesting guy, well worthy of respect and admiration, I believe.

      Watching him win in Indycar in 2000 at Cleveland was awesome - just pure emotion.

        Anyone listen to the Tim Schenken interview on the Motorsport podcast?

            Having just listened to the Tim Schenken podcast, there was a question about getting into racing and the ascension to F1, Tim seemed to agree it is still the same as it was in his time. I'd argue that it certainly is not, as the population is 3 times what it was when he started and there are also less F1 positions available. Meaning it is at least 3 times harder to climb the ladder.

              and about 400x the cost.

                I'll be amazed if penalty review gets disregarded by the FIA, it'll set a bit of a precedent.

                  It sure will be interesting to see what decision is made, either way.

                  4am meeting....I guess we might find out something this weekend

                    Agree.

                    Firstly, there's not as many cars available in the grid as then, especially when you include non-qualifiers.

                    Second - no testing. So no young gun shoot outs like Eddie Jordan loved.

                    Bit harder to buy a Formula Ford and a beaten up Transit van and be competitive in the UK FF series. Then go to the top.

                        Good. While I 10s didn't mean much to the final result, the race director's decisions can't and shouldn't be able to be appealed ad nauseum. It would set a dangerous precedent.

                            Ill be extremely happy if it can go ahead, but equally saddened by the season starting at the Bahrain circuit where there will be zero atmosphere as usual.

                            Melbourne's usual job of kicking off the year might not offer amazing racing, but what the event gives to the sport means a lot more than its passing opportunities
