Hmm, wasn't there some bloke called McLaren too? Not to mention a certain Denis Hulme?

Pleased for Hartley, I just hope it works out for him.

I think I can remember two instances of Stanaway leading a race and caught completely asleep at a VSC restart and being passed. One was in GP3, can't remember where the other one was but I couldn't believe he did the same thing twice.

Also his 2 GP2 wins were a little lucky at the end. He overcooked the tyres at Monaco and had nothing left at the end, another lap he probably would have been passed. Then his second GP2 win he did the same thing and somehow got passed on the last lap with just a few corners to go. Through pure luck, a yellow or red flag suddenly ended the race and they had to go back to the previous timing line, where Richie was still ahead.

His 3.5 campaign also had some crashes, the most notable breaking his back when he went over the back of another car. That's one I'd consider significant, more than his Le Mans crash. But yeah WEC has been a bit disappointing for him, he's had what 2 wins in 5 years, team mates went on to be champs.

But anyway I'm not denying his talent, I think he's extremely quick and done wonders with most of the cars he's been in, which have normally not been leading teams. Just a shame he never got picked up as he might have been noticed a bit more - the Lotus drive in 3.5 was really his best chance to get noticed because it should have been a top team that year, but sadly that's the one where nothing went right and the team seem to suddenly have some issues as well because his team mate was struggling too. But yeah one of the quickest drivers around I think. I know others on this forum don't rate him quite as highly but I'm a bit biased

I actually feel a little disappointed he wants to return home to V8 Supercars. He has such potential on the international scene and the creds, V8SC he could come back and do in a decade, anytime he wants. Plus its already got some fantastic kiwi drivers in it with Giz, Scotty, Fabs. Andre might not be finished yet either.

The other point which is why I have my hopes up is that despite the fact its been a while since he has piloted an open wheeler, the LMP1 cars are not exactly slouches and he has gone from winning Petit Le Mans race in A DPi car, to racing his 919 LMP1 car to this weekend in Austin in a F1 car...all in 3 consecutive weekends

So he is pretty experienced camapigner these days with regards to jumping into different teams, cars and environments with Continental tyres in DPi car and Michelin in LMP1 Porsche etc. He would have learned a great deal from years within Porsche alongside Webber and Timo and hopefully this year looked at how Lotterer goes about a race weekend.

Given plenty of running in FP1 and FP2 I think he can do the job....the big challenge will be these silly Pirelli tyres and how he can keep them in the window.

Anyway...will be great to have a fella back in STR that I can support. I will try and bag some merch for his one off race appearance

Need to be realistic and compare him to how Lotterer did in his 1 off for Caterham(?)

If he can be within half a second of Kvyat's pace & finish the race I would say that is job done.

I think he has nothing to lose. Itís not like heís using it for a future F1 career AFAIK, he can just go out and show F1 a talented driver they missed out on

Well, I would put him in a seat above Di Resta or Massa and probably ahead of Kubicza. So if he were to venture away from Red Bull, he could warrant a shot elsewhere. But maybe I'm overrating him, idk.

With Potsie hanging around as Martini brand ambassador?

Anyone have any information on this Kubicza guy? First I've heard of him.

I've heard of a Paul di Resta though.

Totally agree......if Hartley puts in a solid performance at TorroRosso, I think Williams would be silly to not consider him......he has made a good name for himself by winning LeMans and possibly will soon be the WEC drivers champ, quite a seasoned driver........either way, I think he will be better than DiResta and Kubica.......I think we already have the answer for both drivers, Kubica was about as good as Palmer........and for me DiResta is an arrogant type, who thinks he is better than any car he has ever driven, Anthony Hamilton summed him up perfectly in their court case. Diresta quite simply has not yet made a name for himself.

Glad you've heard of him. Di Resta is quite well known in F1 circles.

Was there a point to brining up your knowledge of him?

I don't know enough about di resta to know about his arrogance, but I was put off by hearing that he was cozying up to daddy stroll at the last race while the Williams's weren't there. That seems sleazy, even if part of the game.

Kubica only as good as Palmer? I know Palmer was probably better than he appeared, but Kubica is something else. Unless Williams consider Hartley, he is Williams' best option ATM
