    Narain Karthikeyan - Dumbass Of The Month

    I always wondered how this guy got an F1 seat cause god knows he was a klutz on the track and always crashing/taking out other cars.

    Well, it looks like yesterday he took himself out before he even got behind the wheel.

    Karthikeyan, in his exhurberence, while walking to the grid decided he would hop the pit wall but he didn't mind that the track surface was about 2 ft LOWER than the pit area surface. He fell and suffered a dislocated shoulder.

    Due to his injury, Medical staff would not clear him to race. 

    His team was left with only 2 drivers to do the full 24.  Nice going, Narain. Smiley

    Oh well there's always next year. Smiley

    IMHO the only reason why Narain Karthikeyan was granted a brief time in a drivers seat was not really to do with his driving ability - it was IMHO more to do with the fact that he was the first driver in F1 from India and this symbolised the arrival of India amongst the world's major economies and the consequential desire for India to add itself to the list of countries hosting Grand Prix races on the F1 calendar

    what a bad luck!

    Can anyone translate this for me "Wer den Schaden hat braucht für den Spott nicht zu sorgen"?

    Hmm, something about "He who has been injured does not need to be mocked." 

    It's not mockery per se. It's just not being attentive. The guy has no reason to be behind a high powered car. He's an awful driver. They should pull his super license.

    I think "He who has the damage, does not need to search for mockery" is better.

    But mockery doesn't feel right for "Spott", this for example is "Spott":
