i have faith in bourdais guys regardless he would out pace everyone on this forum! I will prob never say that an F1 driver lacks talent bc none of them do! some are are just alot better than others.

Ferg: i agree this dudes timing is horrible i would just really like to see him do well.
AJ's on the brink of getting full sponsorship or a better ride in NASCAR. Josef is good, but John Edwards and the kid that drove the last round of A1GP for the US are probably much better bets if they do go young. I still don't see them getting an older American unless Scott feels like throwing a perfectly good career away or they get Hunter-Reay or Buddy Rice.

I think SeaBass is similar, If he was in a better car he would do better or a car that is more matching his set up preference. May be a border line.

I think there are two catagories of F1 drives.

1. Drivers that can adapt to any car and make a bad Cr look good: Lewis, Alonso, maybe Vettel

2. Drivers that need a good car to look good and even maybe they can compete. I almost think Kimi fits into this category but in his case it mental or just being lazy. :Nakajima, Fisiche' it kills me I like Fisichella too.

Its an oversimplification.

R-
Kimi hasn't cared since 2007. Maybe if they put Alonso alongside him, because I still don't think Massa will scare Kimi unless he gets a championship. And Vettel's never been in a backmarker car. Just a crappy team. That's not to say he's not a great driver, but he's not done what Alonso or Schumacher have.


EDIT: Piquet's got the talent. It's just that he's not a confident guy. He's been put in the worst situation possible. I bet if you put him in sportscars he'd have great success. He needs a family atmosphere, and that's something he's not getting as a firm no.2. Although Renault is not putting him through the same things as Kovi. Speaking of which, this weekend was the first time I've ever heard Heikki pissed. He was not happy when BBC interviewed him. What has happened to McLaren?

Randy... stop eating Tard Flakes for breakfast Sutil was just fine until a red car came careening out of control into him, and no amount of speculation on what might have happened will change that.

Sutil's condition into and out of the corner without Kimi is arguable in my point of view.

In that case, continue.

I think we should continue discussion about Piquet.
Kimi does nothing wrong.
I mean, he can't be as bad as everyone thinks. He did give Hamilton a run.
Best drunk driver ever, Kimi Raikkonen

Piquet also gave a run to Barrichello in Bahrain.

Piquet's problem isn't that he isn't reasonably quick, its that he isn't consistent and he flies off the road way too much. I don't care if you can beat everyone else in the world, if you're flying off the track every 20 laps you're useless.

you make a good point. Masa was the king of crashes at Spiker too may be Nelson can calm him self down and be some one some day. I think he would do well in a Le mans prototype. So he has to drive quiet and consistent.
