Which driver is doing the most with the least?

Post by TonyMitc » Wed, 20 Apr 2011 03:42:58


My vote goes to Killer Kobayashi.  He always seems to be there in the
main pack (or second pack) of leading cars while his team-mate, and
other cars that qualified close to him are always way behind.   Hes
given Schumacher fits and even roughed up a Reb-Bull a few times.

If Kobayashi keeps this up?  He will be driving for a top team next
year.   Rosberg/Schumacher, Massa/Alonso, Heidfield/Petrov, Webber,
and Button will all get beat if Kobayashi were their teammates imo.
And given equal equipment Im not 100% sure that Vettel or LH would be
faster than Kobayashi.

I think you'll find Perez finished in front of him on his debut.

That was due to strategy imo.   He does have to be commended for
staying out that long on a set of tires though.   But the last 2 races
you saw Perez driving like a rookie.  He cant pass worth a damn.
When compared to what Kobayashi did that early in his career Perez
needs to step it up imo.

Di Resta, Kobe, Perez - all very impressive new talent.  I'd rather
watch them than Barichello, Trulli, Kovalainen any day.

Most with the least? In China, Kovalainen.

The new crop of drivers seem promising.  I'm impressed with Di Resta.
Perez only impressed me during the first GP.  He did manage to lay
down a decent pass in China though.

Ok.   Can't argue with that.
