But, as a lot of people think and know, he can be very selfish and one track minded. And he has shown it again with his recent comments...

I'm sorry mate, but if you were in a smaller team, you wouldnt be saying such things. The sport depends on the teams filling the grid and not just the big boys!"If some teams cannot afford to test, well that's natural, it's a sport. Real Madrid can buy some players and other teams cannot. But they can't say sorry for that.
"In F1 there is always a need to protect the smaller teams, but if they cannot test, then they cannot test."
At the moment, F1 is trying (loosely using the word) to make the grid a bit more fair. Let the talent win rather than the outright resource - a bit like Financial Fair Play in football now (despite it being abused).
Yes, teams like Merc, McLaren, Ferrari and that will still have a headstart due to their already in place resources.
However, the saying "Pull the ladder up Jack and sod the rest" comes to mind.
