WRC driv­ers: grow up

Motor Sport News - - Have your say - Mick Straf­ford Via email

I was al­ways un­der the im­pres­sion that the W in World Rally Cham­pi­onship stood for World.

Ap­par­ently not; it seems to stand for Whingers.

Too much gravel, wrong start­ing po­si­tion, too much rain, not enough snow, too much dust, part time driv­ers un­fair, too dark, too many rocks in the un­der­growth, we need Michele Mou­ton to go in front of us in case there’s any­thing fright­en­ing in those scary forests and now we can’t do a round of the cham­pi­onship if a baby is due.

Please, guys, get over your­selves. You’re driv­ing the best rally cars in the world on the best stages.

Man up and get on with it or would you be hap­pier go­ing rac­ing on Tar­mac in­stead?
