    That he thinks he's worthy of a seat in F1 really illustrates how dim he is. The guy can't hold a candle to Stroll, and Stroll is one of the worst drivers to come along since Alex Yoong. Ferrucci is Yuji Ide levels of bad.

    Scratch that. At least Yuji Ide made it to F1.

    Yes,... and thus why Papa Stroll would want him as Lil' Lance's teammate.

    In 2014 Arjun Maini raced in the UK in F4, I was one of his engineers during a very successful season, he had several wins and finished second in the championship to our other driver George Russell who is currently leading the F2 championship.
    Arjun was only 16 years old when he came over, he lived in lodgings in Northampton and devoted himself to ensuring he had a successful racing career. He is a very sensitive but level headed guy and I enjoyed every minute working with him. I am extremely saddened to hear that he has been getting a load of grief from his teammate and the family and I'm sure it will have affected Arjun's performance. The team have issued a very strong statement to the media backing Arjun fully and criticising Ferrucci and the actions of his family.

    Ferrucci now sacked by his team, and they're also taking legal action for unpaid bills.

    Brilliant. That amount of arrogance, bullying...and all that whilst not even having paid the bills!

    He was also dumped by his management team. The only way he's going to get a ride anywhere is if he pays up front.

    Think they did an incredible job of people not wanting to be involved with them in any way. Save for maybe the most desperate team out there. Whoopsie.

    "F2 team @trident_teamhas parted ways with Haas F1 junior and banned racer Santino Ferrucci, who crashed into team-mate Arjun Maini, for which he was handed a two-race ban and €66,000 for driving without a glove on, while also holding a mobile phone. The team also point to payment issues for the termination of the contract A statement read the team “communicated to Santino Ferrucci and to its guarantor, a company represented by Mr Michael Ferrucci, the termination of the contract with the team. This decision was motivated by the events - which are now in the public domain - that occurred at Silverstone, as well as by the serious breach of driver's payment obligations. Since the beginning of the championship, the driver justified his payment default with alleged failure by his sponsors to fulfil their obligations. It seems weird that, despite such kind of issues, Santino Ferrucci had the resources needed to enter the Detroit IndyCar race from June 1-3 while, at the same time, he was not honouring his agreement with Trident Motorsport. Trident gave mandate to its lawyers in order to activate all the procedures needed to fully recover its credits towards the driver”
