Brundle hits out at criticism

Brundle hits out at criticism

Without naming names, Martin Brundle has slated past F1 drivers for criticising the sport.

Last week former Champion Jacques Villeneuve did the media rounds and slammed the sport for being "too artificial."

He told Autosport: "Formula 1 is not epic anymore, the drivers are not heroes. The problem is that the changes are being made in an artificial way and that doesn't work.

"It may be fun for six months, but after that everyone gets bored, and once you start going artificial you have to do it more and more to the point where it's not even real racing anymore."

His comments are just the latest from a former driver cricitising the new-look sport and have not gone down well with former driver turned Sky Sports commentator Brundle.

"Angers me when former F1 drivers stick a boot into F1 for publicity," Brundle wrote on Twitter.

"They had privileged chances, success, cash. Give something positive back."
