Autosport seem to love using old quotes to generate new articles, there were a few new ones yesterday, which just recycled quotes from Jerez testing.

Today, things have gone a bit further with this one:

I mean is there any need to post this now? I am sure DC has more important things on his mind than the Aus GP right now. But Autopsport seem to make out that this is his number one concern.

That's what we call "Komkommertijd" here in NL.

According to Google Translate, that means "cucumber time".

Obviously that made me think of Vettel's spat with a certain ex-HRT driver.

I already was thinking it would get literally translated, haha. It had nothing to do with a certain triple WDC and a (currently) unemployed F1 driver.

Agree with OP. I sent a tweet to one Autosport journalist the other day saying something along the same lines. The "Raikonnen pleased with progress" and "Mercedes happy with Hamilton" news stories are mostly BS imho.
