Australian Grand Prix boss hits out at F1 stars
8 April 2010

Australian Grand Prix boss Ron Walker has said most F1 drivers are prima donnas.

Reacting to criticism that this year's race ran too late, and that the falling sun led to dangerously dark conditions, Walker said: "It's clearly not dangerous.

"You can't please these drivers, they are a bunch of lazy people who won't do anything to help the sport, except for two or three.

"A lot of drivers are prima donnas. They are never happy," he added.

On behalf of Australia, i would like to apologise for the very existence of Ron Walker. He is a self-important idiot, completely unliked in Australia by anyone and apparently liked only by Bernie anywhere else in the world. I say bring the Australian Grand Prix back to Adelaide where it belongs and feed Walker to the Great White Sharks off the South Australian coast.

Ron Walker must be pals with the local Mayor. Both of them seem to be on a mission to upset the whole F1 fraternity. Maybe the millions of $Aus that pour into the local economy every year upsets them, and they would rather not have a world class sporting event visit them on an annual basis.

I agree, send the event to a city that wants the business and send a message to these embarrasing idiots.

Actually, South Australia was a free settlement, unlike every other state in Australia. Melbourne in Victoria had its fair share of convicts, and Ron Walker is probably descended from them, but Adelaide was founded as a vision of a utopian city of the Victorian era, paid for by English aristocracy and entrepeneurs.

I enjoy the Australian view on many subjects. It's highly entertaining and introspective.

How can you dislike such characters? We have them here too.
