I feel Times Of India is causing great damage to the World Environment. By printing crap news, thereby wasting paper (How many trees are destroyed).
Here is a sample article
Look at the title. Karthikeyan not far behind Schumaker. Now who on earth is Schumaker?
Ok leave that!
The way they have projected the article, it is like narain is closing in on schumi. Even a person who has watched just 1 race in life will know how much 2.5 seconds difference means.
If you read the fine print it is 2.5 seconds on the best lap. So if a race has 50 laps, Karthikeyan will be 50*2.5 which is equal to 125 seconds.
That means he will finish the race 2 min 5 seconds after schumi finishes.
I am in no way ridiculing Narain or the jordan. Given the money and facility they have, they are trying to put up a brave face and are doing a exceptionally wonderful job!
But this newspaper's article will unnecessarily raise the hopes of many people in India. And this will put additional pressure on Narain.
Last but not the least. 13 people tested in the Catalunya circuit and Narain finished 12th. Thats the ground reality.
