Petrov trying hard to be hated by the Italians:
“I don’t think we should have come here,” explained Petrov, who has contrasting views on the Mugello circuit. “It is not safe and wide enough. If you lose it, the walls are so close and you will smash into the tyres. It is not for Formula 1 and, if you lost the steering or the tyre pressure dropped or whatever, then it will be a big crash.”


He mentioned before that Alonso is a pay driver and didn't give him the opportunity to win the title in 2010, plus he criticized the Italian racing academies, and took Trulli's seat at Caterham :lol:

To be honest, Vitaly could hit any wall within 1km of the edge of the track

It's not a wide circuit, but really?

I really do hope that Ferrari have found something special with their re-design. The more race winners and competitors the better.

Funny thing with petrov, is the simple fact that Monaco and Singapore are much closer.

In fact, why dont we just show Petrov up even more and remind him that the Moto GP crew have races around here, and they dont have the luxury of the nice chassis/monaco safety during an accident. The slightest thing goes wrongon any track in Moto, and your looking at broken bones or even worse, Simoncelli's upsetting fate.

Found a quote from AlonsoXD;

FA:" First of all, I want to put everyone’s mind at rest, my family and friends: I’m fine, no harm done after hitting the crash barrier at seven kilometres an hour,”
