Lack Of Respect?

Fernando Alonso was talking yesterday about the legend that was Gilles Villeneuve, the Ferrari driver who was killed 30 years ago when he mentioned that there is a possible lack of respect between the drivers that wasn’t there in the 80’s

I would agree with Fernando’s assumption, even at the last race in Bahrain, Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg basically drove Alonso and also Lewis Hamilton off the track yet received no penalties

He has a valid point when he said that if today’s F1 stars were to have a racing battle like Villeneuve did with Rene Arnoux at the French GP in 1979, it wouldn’t last very long because one of the drivers would inevitably have crashed into the other.
