This is the reason I actually don't mix with people like that even in real life. I've always believed your preferences in your chosen hobbies (such as driver preferences in sport) reflects on the kind of person you are in life, and I wouldn't want to work with someone that has a value system geared towards failure and negativity. (usually MS bashers and Alonso fans)
Oh, so you've got it all figured out have you....
I found the following a very interesting read from an article in Motor Sport magazine, heard of it?
It calls into question the way stewards operate and judicate certain actions on track.
And I quote:
"There is no question that, of late, the "nanny state" has taken complete hold of f1. For countless years Ayrton Senna and then Michael Schumacher in the years after, periodically behaved like homicidal lunatics on the track, routinely employing intimidatory tactics, either to keep a challenging driver back, or to unnerve him into letting them through. "Give way or we crash' was the sum of it. Disagree with me if you wish, but it is for that reason that, for all their sublime skills, I refuse - and will always refuse - to think of Senna and Schumacher in the same light as Fangio, Moss, Clark, Stewart, Lauda and Prost all of whom resoulutely fought fair. Once the sport tacitly sanctions the "professional foul", all bets are off."
Mix with whom you please, but a value system geared towards your ideals is not one that I'd ever want to be a part of...and I'd say it's a bit more than presumptuous to say that MS bashers and Alonso fans (as you said) are the only ones to feel this way.......
