Korea 2012 Driver Of The Day

Post by buil » Mon, 15 Oct 2012 20:26:10


Lots of very good drives, lots of battles but of coarse it was a boring GP as usual just ask Richard, Henry, Bird, etc.

However Massa was a step above today so he gets my vote with a special mention to the Hulk for grabbing a lotto opportunity and taking it and to both TorroRosso drivers who entertained with passion.

beers,

Extra vigor may be a nod and payback to team for having his contract
renewed for 2013.

I dunno but I kinda feel there is a repeating pattern year over year. In
the first half of the season Felipe is not fulfilling the expectations,
everyone starts discussing who will replace him, warning comes from the
Ferrari top and then - allofasuden - Felipe ups his game and gets his
contract for another year. Or, since I have no statistics to look at,
is it just my wrong impression?

Or is it that Fred carries the team through first 3/4 of season,
whereupon Felipe awakes from his nap and starts to cover his winded
teammate?

Alonso is underperforming?

Perhaps all the development parts got to Alonso, and Massa kind of gets
to catch up as the development settles down over the season.

Every competitor has his instant limits, not to mention he changed chassis.
Both are reversible,

No thanks. If you can't say what you mean it ain't worth figuring.

Clearly an attempt to backpedal.
