Ford thinking ahead!!

OMG!!!

Ok firstly I know its one thing to have sportsmenship, then its a totally different thing to have some smarts about yourself.

*Example number 1* - The bernard car (FPR) hits the wall, I think owen was driving..ok lets see..they are NOT in contention to win anything so what do they do when ALL the fords are 40+ seconds behind. Limp the piece of crap back to the garage and park it!

BRAVO TO FPR on that move!

*Example number 2* - Canto/??? cars engine fails, intsead of parking it somewhere where it might invoke a safety car they sit it neatly tucked it away to the left of the start of conrod...unbelievable.

Do the Ford teams have NO sense of brand loyality..of course not..their all out there for THEMSELVES!!

I still cant get over it...it seems that all the holden teams usually help each other out in small ways..but do you think the Ford teams can..haha yeah right! Its times like this I wonder why I bother!

Well done to craig and glenn but even they didn't deserve 2nd..scaifey (SP?) was ripped of as the door was no problem.

Yet again, unfortunatly we had to hope and pray for some luck...im sick of it!

Ill still be waving the blue flag but jeez! Its a race...you go there to win and nothing else at ALL costs.

Well done to murph though...no one else from both camps where close to their speed. But I guess there is always next year...and the year after............and the...........

Re: Ford thinking ahead!!

I reckon.. I was kicking myself over this....

You see holden cars butting fords off holding them back doing all this hoobery giggery, but you know I think that ford plays fair, plays true and nice. Ford is above holden in this area and I don't think that ford would ever want to lower themselves to that level.

Re: Ford thinking ahead!!

Hey, full credit to FPR for NOT doing anything pathetic and unsportsmanlike. John Russell said they could have if they wanted to, but he was there to play fair.

I've had it with the whinging.

And all this time I thought that MOTORSPORT was a fair & just sport, where upholding the rules and traditions of the game were an essential part of competing on a level playing field.
How wrong I must be.......

yeah i agree with that...BUT..FPR KNEW that the car was coming in...lowndes was 40 seconds or so behind. So are we going to be 'fair' and come 2nd all the time???

Im sick of it!...If HRT were in the same position do you think they would have done the same..haha yeah right!

Its a race and we are against THEM!

And geoff polities should have a good talk to the teams that ford sponsers...after all its for the good of ford!

Yes, we are. Cheating - or playing fair? You obviously don't give a damn about cheating.

They might have, might not have, but that's their problem. If they need to do something cheap like that just to win, then let them live with it.

I think Geoff would rather play fair. He's that kind of guy, which is why he has so much respect.

Re: Ford thinking ahead!!

I too respect the Ford teams for their fair racing. I am proud of the statement by FPR team boss or whoever he was for doing the right thing and saying so.

Made their complaint about Skaife genuine and fair.

I am disappointed Ford lost it again, but what can you do. I feel most for OzEmail who threw everything at it, but luck was not on their side.

On the bright side, overall the championship is looking better for Ford now than it had before, with the exception of Murphy.

Till next year...

Tim
