      Actually he paid full price for that car. It was always assumed that he was gunning for a nice role with Porsche post F1 and when Walter retires. Seriously though, he did pay full price for it!

      They don't know people in Porsche, but I do! Seriously though, I didn't say he is not getting paid for doing those promotional events and videos. But he bought that GT2 RS on his own accord. Walked into a Porsche dealership himself and said he wants to buy one. A few others have also bought one like Vettel, Button, Rossi, Hamilton.

      "Sorry Wayne, can't do you a discount. Can't even do one for Mark Webber. But I'll tell you what, you can have the Porsche embossed headrest for half price: $5,000. How's that?"

      Well if you were Porsche, there are 500 cars worldwide, it's a sold out with another 1000 people on the wait list wanting to get one, would you discount? If anyone says yes, then clearly I'm the better businessman than you are.

      The rumor also rated a mention on the ABC radio this AM, irrespective Massa has got to go, he is a mobile chicane.

      Yes.

      And he hasn't strictly denied the rumour either.

      I'd say his comment reinforced it if anything.

      Funny old world…

      Two men in Wellford, South Carolina, have been charged with armed robbery. Mario Andretti Jackson, 38, and Tyler Alexander Fernandez, 19, were charged after being arrested on Monday.

      For those of you who might not understand the significance of such a story, it should be noted that Mario Andretti is a legend of American racing, his name being synonymous with speed in the United States. He won the 1978 Formula 1 World Championship with Lotus and is one of only two drivers to have won races in Formula 1, IndyCar, the World Sportscar Championship and NASCAR. He has also been a winner in sprints and midgets.

      Tyler Alexander is one of the rare Americans who made a significant contribution to F1 in a career that stretched from 1963 until a couple of years ago. Alexander was one of the founders of McLaren and later became a director and shareholder. He oversaw much success for the company in CanAm and IndyCar before selling his shares to Ron Dennis. He later returned to F1 as a leading player in Carl Haas’s Beatrice F1 team before returning to McLaren as an engineer throughout the 1990s and 2000s.

      Team orders are sh!t, regardless who's doing it.
