And They Say America Is Litigious!!


Apparently Jenson has fired a warning at Sir Frank that he may take a year sabbatical if forced to join Williams. This reported at

If this is in fact true; it gives pause as to what really is going on at Williams. Our redoubtable poster, Grace, suggests that maybe Jenson knows something we don’t. That perhaps Dave Richards is considering buying Williams as F1 magazine purported a few months ago. Perhaps this is not a situation Jenson wants to be involved with. Regardless of the conspiracy theory; Jenson needs to honor his commitment. His actions reprehensible at best.

Which brings up another question. I grow tired of hearing the F1 circus refer to the Indy situation as unavoidable due to America being the most litigious in the world. I grow tired of this because it seems to me that Jenson-gate is a clear indication of how litigious the sport has become period. Jackie Stewart did deals with a handshake and now we have litigation to rule on litigation. Stoddy threatening Max in Australia was not litigious? The FIA is not litigious? Bernie’s entire SLEC fiasco is not litigious? The BAR debacle with Pollock and JV was not litigious? Let’s remember that the whole world has become litigious and spare the anti-American jibe. Sure, you may feel better when accusing the US of being litigious but F1, Britain and Europe all share in the litigious nature of a debased culture.
