Re: Greenpeace banners

Wow some of the comments on that video are extremely aggressive and narrow minded, someone actually blaming the drivers themselves for destroying the arctic? This is the main reason i get annoyed with 'activists', they are so over the top.

Re: Di Resta v Sutil

I don't rate either of them tbh, but out of the two i'd say it was Di Resta. He just can't keep it together for a full season, maybe with a bit more experiance he would improve but this is his third season (i think) and he he hasn't showed that he has the potential to be a champion.
