A thread about the coverage, since theres been some criticism, wich I share, on it in the racing comments forum.

I find the respect on some teams piss poor and the jokes from a very low level.

One team goes for a glory run, the other gets praised into heaven with headline articles for doing similar things.

Its gutter press mentality imo. Hope they have some power of introspection.

Autosport didn't write anything fans other than the tiffosi aren't already thinking

Things are not going well for Ferrari, you can get the hump about it, but thats the perception on the street

The one that caused this thread was a mod telling us that we are not allowed to discuss Autosport's Ferrari coverage in the Ferrari thread. That's all

Someone hates Ferrari at Autosport. I want to know who and why.

Wash your mouth with soap and water son, autosrport articles/comments are written with highest journalistic standards in reagard.

I hope that is sarcasm, because if you truly believe that, you clearly dont know what high standards are.

The one thing I'd like to see more of is analysis of sector times.

This article is completely 1 dimensional shit. It read's like a qualifying session. The only thing it reports on are fastest times, which we all know are meaningless in the first test.

Sector times means too much work for them. This is simply a meet and greet for these faux fat-@rses, on their all expenses paid jaunt to Jerez. To cap it off, their attempts at humour are about as funny "as rabies in a dog home". IMO they should stick to the day job. On second thoughts. :rolleyes:

That's a blatant slander. Autosport brings the most comprehensive analysis out there, borderline scientific level.

I wasn't slandering Autosport, but that article. Did you read it? Before they took it down...

You know how you say somethig opposite of what it actually is, to highlight how useless it actually is? I believe that's what they call sarcasm.

I'm confused. Now the qualifying piece is moved from plus content to a free article and Noble has done a plus content analysis. Will read on the plane tomorrow!
