Odds alone would suggest otherwise. There have been too many feuds pass by like water under the bridge for this to be that severe,imo.
History tells us that this too shall pass. And that take on it would require the participation of 42 other drivers each race. Most have other irons in the fire and no time to get into the feud of somebody else.
It's way overblown just the same as anything controversial tends to be with the aid of the media that needs a stink going for ratings. Denny's injury aside.
