F1 is bigger than any one person, Flav, missed by some, not by others (including me).  While he brought a certain amount of flair with what he did and how he did it, the entire show will move on un-harmed by his departure.   Like anything in life, F1 needs balance, the right balance of exposure and glamour with the right races, after all it's no good gathering a massive crowd only to bore them, aka Valencia.

The most memorable and glamorous thing in F1 for me, is Spa and seeing the cars go through Eau Rouge full tilt boogie.  It's simply incredible and boggles the mind, keeps me coming back for more. 

For those watching on TV, we want to see the racing, for those lucky enough to be at the track, they can experience all the glamour they want when the cars aren't on track.  Racing is paramount to any true F1 fan and Race fans in general.  If your in it for the glamour then your just lurking and wasting a proper spectators seat.  I'd suggest going and joining the mindless peons at the oscars red carpet ceremony, surely there's all the glamour needed.

As for crashing a car on purpouse, I say Piquet Jr is a weak minded fool, he would have gotten more respect (possibly fired) and more credibility as a driver had he done what the rest of us would do, and said no.  It's too risky and the reward could never out-weigh the risk.  Flav and co should be charged under occupational health and safety breaches and renault should be removed from the championship for allowing such a dangerous and obvious breach of the regulations to happen, just to make 1 driver happy.

I will not mis Flav one little bit, I've been sick of his do anything at anytime just to placate Fernando Alonso for years, even at the cost of a driver he was supposed to be managing, Pat Symonds is another who should have said no, surely he realised if they were caught it would be the end of his F1 career.

As always these are just my thoughts and opinions, and I could be wrong, and I mean no offence to anyone with them.
