Patrick and Nick,
yes i agree you are right. I wasn’t speaking of respect in general in society, just respect for others on the track. Mistakes and the sudden loss of talent moments will always happen but there is a shift to aggression over skill. We shouldn’t need the drop down bumpers or the electronic hit detection system that is also being developed (i assume because the drop downs don’t really tell the whole story) but I guess we do anyway. I am just wondering what the unexpected consequence will be of adding yet another layer or bandaid to cure the symptom rather than the cause which is lack of developing proper race craft. A lot of it stems to jumping into the national scene far to early with a lot of pressure to perform.
