Kind of agree.
The Brundle comment of "give something back" is not entirely accurate. Are we to expect that former F1 drivers have to sit back and enjoy whatever rules and regulations F1 higher ups come up with?
Ex-drivers speaking out against the new rules like double points is in a way giving something positive back, as it shows the higher ups that it is not just a small section of hardcore fans that do not approve of artificial regulations like double points.
When you consider that most current drivers do not approve of the double points rule as well, guys like J,V are reinforcing a point that needs to be made. J.V is giving something positive back by voicing his concern that the fans and current drivers in F1 are getting a raw deal.
Same basic thing going on here as seen on this forum on occasion - instead of addressing the issues raised by Villeneuve, Brundle responds wih a personal attack. Makes me think that Villeneuve is very much on target with his opinion.
The question is, who is pulling Brundle's strings? - Get out there quickly Martin and dismiss JV's comments before more voices appear.
