Re: Formula 1 Monaco
I have to add this part form the press conferance with DC, I found it quite amusing DC telling him how to ask questions basiclly
Q: Now, a lot of rumours have come out about your future, the latest one is Jaguar. Can you shed any light on that, whether you are going…?
DC:No. You know the score. Announcements are announcements and until that time what am I going to say? ‘Ok, just between you and I and everyone else in the press room, don’t tell anyone else…’ Erm, everyone has just got to wait for all the announcements. People continue to speculate about all the drivers that are up for contract renewal or potential to move away but that is all it is until there is an official announcement.
Q: But can you just give us an idea. How is it going? Are you hopeful of being on the grid next year?
DC:Well, I understand the question, but the first priority is making sure I am on the grid here this weekend and making sure I do the best job I can, so that is where my focus and energy goes.
Q: Do you feel you need to have a car to show off your talents or do you feel your history, your form in the past should get you a ride for next year?
DC:I think that if you don’t have a history, you either have the word potential beside your name or you are not considered someone who will be in Formula One for very long. So I have gone through a period in my career where I started with no history and just that word potential. Then you turn that word into race results, so I am comfortable to look back on the results I have and use those.
Q: You feel that is going to stand you in good stead?
DC:Let’s wait and see what happens.
Q: You are not giving out very positive vibes here, David.
DC:No, I am very positive, but I can’t tell you…
Q: I don’t want details, I am just saying, you know…
DC:What are you asking for?
Q: I said ‘are things looking fairly good?’ and you didn’t say ‘yes they are’…
DC:Well, you know, yes, things are looking very good. Is that better?!
Q: Can I have a big smile as well?!!
DC:Ok, sorry, what you have to do is ask a question and tell me what answer you would like me to give to make you happy.
Q: It is just there are lots of people who will re-interpret the answer, that is the trouble.
DC:That is the trouble, and I have always maintained a level of either I can’t tell you or I give you an honest answer and some of your colleagues don’t respect that, so I have nothing to say until I have something to say. And let the speculation continue, you know…It’s all just bollocks at the end of the day, anyway, isn’t it!
