it's sad to see such a comment in the back and more on a forum.
If you have a problem with me come talk to me in the face during the race, rather than giving a bad reputation.

Having been at his side, Reno has made every effort this weekend to help pilots who came to see, it is more than friendly and pleasant.

It is in fact bad sportsmanship when a fellow racer walks by after the main and Reno and his crew look at the racer while saying something in French and then begin laughing. Perhaps it should have been said in English?

Default Reno 911

Give the guy a break. Cultural differences can be tough to understamd, what may be appropriate in one culture is not in others. He just got here, it can't be easy to move across the world you know....Being under the spotlight just makes it more difficult.....Our culture does that you know.....

This is plain paranoļa. Please reserve your opinion for the next time you'll see them at the track.

Have you ever heard a frenchman speak english? The silly accent we got. Do you think we then push it to the point to speak english to each other when we are between ourselves? ;-)

Note that Reno picked up a very good accent from his time in Australia.

You'll understand him very well so you can go and talk to him and then make up your mind about him instead of bashing him on the forums for something you assumed he did.

Reno is one heck of a nice guy. Seen him at numerous races since before the 2008 Worlds. Must be talking about someone else.

Just the different culture......The guy was talking about Reno (Reno was the one who BQ-ed) .However Savoya is a great guy and one off the best driver in the world .We ow him respect.I met him a few times at the Farm 2 and he was nice.He doesn't smile a lot but it's doesn't mean he is rude....

Trust me I understand cultural differences. As a corporate pilot and employee of American Airlines I deal with many different cultures every day. I have in fact been to France as well as many other parts of the world and have always treated others and been treated with respect. I'm not trying to backstab anyone or say that Reno isn't an amazing driver, i'm simply saying that for the first time many people have met him he displayed poor sportsmanship.
