Nah it's not on here, various other places online. I didn't expect that level of backlash at the decision, I'm surprised that it surprised people since we know the owners(?) of the team are still his sponsor.Jiggy said:I doubt Marcus Ericsson will be in tears over it from his F1-seat.AMS97KRR said:Sure, nobody wants him dead but there's been some pretty harsh, rather unwarranted stuff thrown around about him.Jiggy said:Vile is an exaggeration, it's not like anyone wants him dead, it's just that Ericsson doesn't excite anybody and I personally want people in who can excite me. I do agree that it's because of Ericsson('s sponsors) that someone like Leclerc even has a spot right now, but beyond that, there's little to be thankful for.
He's just a dull, completely average (in this field below average) driver who is in because of his money and who has nothing about him that hints at improvement. Filler. Nobody likes filler.
Not to mention that the reason he was so close to Wehrlein at the end is in part because all the newer parts went straight to Ericsson and all the leftovers went to Wehrlein. Same happened to Nasr and then Nasr was the one to score points in Brazil. And it's frustrating when exciting talents like Giovinazzi basically has nothing going for him and we have to put up with Ericsson instead. In F1.
Like you said, simply put it's a boring choice, but that's no reason to be a d*** about it. I'd rather have had Gio this season to be honest, but equally I'd also rather have had 10 teams than 9!
Every grid in history has had guys like Ericsson, just be thankful he isn't hitting people like Maldonado or that he is wasting a good car
Like I don't know what comments you're alluding to when you say he's had unwarranted stuff said in his direction, but if it's this forum, a very lazy search shows the MBK-comment as the only anti-Ericsson comment and that post in itself is hardly anything excessive. And even if it was, who cares about being a ****? It's a throwaway-comment on a throwaway-section of a forum most people use to **** at Codemasters over whatever game they suck at. Even if he said something like Marcus Ericsson is a talentless spastic piece of ****, who cares? It has zero effect on his life.
And well, you could say it affects your forum experience. But the comment wasn't excessive. So at that point, it's just making a big deal out of nothing really to take that as a vile example of pure hatred towards Ericsson and I'm just not following you on that one.
It's an expression of disappointment and people should be able to express that without getting called out for no good reason really.
Assuming the unwarranted stuff you're alluding to, is based on this forum, of course.
About Ericsson, I really don't care about compromises or to be thankful that at least he's not this or that. On the grid, he's a waste of space. So I desire a situation where Sauber is there, but with a talented driver instead of Ericsson. That's nothing personal. That's just preferences.
I haven't bought it for this reason. Although I've heard they're planning to release free content as time goes on, but then why release it so void of content? It looks like a good game for online racing but just so little else to do. I'd pick it up for £20 in its current state, not £40 +Hughesy said:Nope and I have no plans to. It has about as much content as GT 5 prologue. For online I’m sure it’s great, but I’m not paying to play a game online, as I already pay for my broadband. Honestly PD have lost it, they were once kings of racing, the GT series is what got me interested in racing games. But now it takes them 10 years to release games and they are somehow still unfinished. It only has 6 real world tracks, and most of what made GT special is gone.
