I never said that because I dont think that's the case. I might not think he's the 'perfect symbiosis of Senna and Prost' but I think, as a driver, he's top notch.
Okay, good to know.
And again, the point was not wether I think Massa has or has not to go. The point is comenting on his performance on this specific race before watching it. Is that that hard to understand ?
So you where having a personal discussion with another poster over when to watch a race and when to comment on it. Okay, Im not interested much in that stuff.
OTOH, what you say wasn't the point would, actually, be of general interest: is Massa doing a good enough job for his team? Over at McLaren we got a partly similar situation with one driver on average being a bit slower but allowed to race the other guy nonetheless. The all important difference, however, is that the slightly slower guy can frequently make circumstances work for him and bring home the bacon, this year even better than the faster guy. At Ferrari OTOH, the best Massa can do is effectively ruining races for Alonso, without doing anything for the team in terms of results himself. It's plain obvious that this is the least desirable situation from a teams POV.
