Well sorry, Mark Webber. You’ve lost very nearly all my respect in a single hit. Comments like yours from a home motor sport hero are simply the worst Easter gift to the loved ones of young male drivers everywhere. These irresponsible comments from someone of such influence merely epitomise the “I should be free to do what I want when and where I want” attitude that senselessly robs our community of precious lives, on an almost daily basis.
You could recover my respect, however, by an apology in similar vein to that of Lewis Hamilton, whom you presumed to defend. Failing that, the only thing that can’t go fast enough is the race itself – to your home state.
