I don't think this pairing is such a good idea.

Haven't they been *mrawr* *hiss* since they were both at Jaguar?

Ja, it's a terrible idea. Competition is good (Kimi and JPM). Sniping isn't.

I'd have to hope it's Webber's way of putting some more pressure on Frank to use someone else, albeit in a public manner that Frank might not like. With Davidson apparently out the running now unless something happens that just leaves Heidfeld as the only other driver under consideration that is testing. I'd still take DC even though he apparently doesn't get to test.

Not to hijack but this silliness sure caught my eye while I was there.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Comedian Stefan Raab has put an end to Ralf Schumacher's plans to invest in a chain of Slovanian sex shops after he dubbed the German and his wife 'Porno-Ralle' and 'Hard Cora'.

The Toyota driver has announced that he'd be investing in the Austrian branch of Beate Uhse, a German erotic products company, as a "a silent partner." Ralf's $2.6 million would be used to open eight sex shops in Slovenia and Croatia.

"For me, it's just like any other investment," he told Bild.

But the 29-year-old has now decided to withdraw from the venture after German comedian Raab made jokes about his unusual investment.

"It's become a campaign against me. My role as an example to others is more important than any money," Ralf told the German newspaper.

"What Stefan Raab has done with my name and that of my wife was far too personal. I have a son to think of."

Meanwhile Willi Weber, the manager to the two Schumacher brothers, has revealed that Ralf will be suing Raab, as his jokes meant the end of his plans to invest in the erotic empire.

"Raab went too far, he has damaged the Schumacher honour," Weber commented. ------------So we aren't the only country with silly lawsuits .

I was reading the same story this morning.

This is terrible news for the sex-starved people in Croatia and Slovenia!

Back on topic... Williams bollocked Webber:

Williams acts on Webber Premium Content
Australian reprimanded on Pizzonia comments

Mark Webber's critical comments came despite the fact he works closely with Antonio Pizzonia

Williams has moved to quell any growing friction between Mark Webber and hopeful future team-mate Antonio Pizzonia getting out of control by stepping in to stop the latest public spat between the two drivers.

In the wake of comments from Webber in the Italian press on Thursday accusing Pizzonia of being a ‘liar' over his claims of unfair treatment at Jaguar, high level sources have told autosport.com that the team has verbally reprimanded the Australian about his behaviour and warned him to not repeat such comments again.

Seems to me the damage is already done. I thought Webber was more intelligent than that.
