Bruno looked like he had his hands full in Hungary, lets see what he can do. Grossjean has been doing pretty good in GP2.

Good to see that Renault is giving the young guys a chance.



Looks to me like Nick Heidfeld is likely to be waving a proper goodbye to his Renault drive very soon, reading that he's not likely to finish the season I wouldn't think. Have to say he hasn't impressed so far, he's not done as well as he should do or as well as Kubica would have done in the same car you have to say.

I live in hope that one day we will see this scene in F1. I reckon at the way things are going, Nick would be the first one to succumb. :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Great video. What do you mean by "you live in hope"? I quote:

"At the final race of that tour, Hunt's machine wound up straddling a fence. Jabbing furiously at the starter button, full of adrenaline, enraged that the engine would not start, he sat shouting oaths at it, until it was pointed out to him that his engine was on the other side of the track."

On a side note, mates, how I miss James Hunt today.

It must be that I listened to Joan Manuel Serrat's "Las malas compañías" (Bad companies) few minutes ago. http://www.ce.berkeley.edu/~coby/songtr ... smalas.htm

My old friends are folks who care about nothing,
Who think that sidewalks are just fine for pissing.
They answer questions that nobody's asked them,
And they play for money, though their own is missing.

Yeah, but hitting your car with a tree branch, that's sheer genius. 8)

Well let's see, if I remember there are trees at Spa so maybe we could see this in a bit. Nick's been one of my favs for a long time and he has definately not been "Quick Nick" this season. When Kube got hurt and he was named as a replacement, I thought he would thump Petrov. Boy was i wrong. Maybe Nick's expiration date has been reached, sorta like another German that comes to mind. ;)

Let's face it, there are just too many Germans to pick on.
