    In criticizing Michael for testing the F1, Alesi and Lauda bring up the age old question, "How much whine can you get by squeezing sour grapes."

    Lauda sits in a glass house: As team manager at Jaguar he got tired of the drivers' complaints about the car. So he test drove it himself. He lost control twice. As he beached it the second time, they called it a day.

    And who ever cared what a one time winner had to say? Panis, Herbert, Salo anybody?

    C'mon Andreas. Harsh. I'm not saying any of those mentioned would be as good as Hamilton was in 2007, but I'll bet if they were given a Mclaren in their first year, all of them would have more K's in their career than they ended up with (and it's nice you mentioned Salo as that was a win) .

    Yes that was harsh, but I really don't see where Alesi is coming from. Is he commenting because he was a Ferrari driver? That's about the only commonality here. If anything drivers who had a one year sabbatical would be a lot more interesting to hear from (Prost, Hakkinen, Mansell, Jones).

    There is a lot I'd like to hear from Alesi about (e.g. what Ferrari was like in its worst time), but not on what he thinks about MS testing again.
