he's been running the renaultf1/lotus/whatevertheyare demo f1 car at the wsr events at least once a year for a couple of years now. last year at ricard it was alongside his old man in the car he won there in 20 years (or so) previously.

frankly, there are many many more talents who deserve the right to be close to a f1 team.

ASRoma should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I'm pretty sur he also ran in the young driver days in secret.

He is pretty good, and he is doing very well in lmp1. I would definitely rate him higher than D'Ambrosio for example. In the LMP1 he has been quicker than guys like Fässler, Jani, Boullion...

He has had a weird career as he studied before racing, but in my opinion he is very underrated.

Gravity has been completely remanaged and the 4 young drivers they have and with grosjean+prost as older drivers, I think the recruiting over the last 2 years has been pretty strong

My point is that they are indeed many many good drivers that deserve a chance, and that Prost Jr has roved that he deserves his chance.

i'm just trolling now. off season boredom ftw.

but seriously, back to fr3.5. i suppose a "who's earnt the right to be a f1 driver" thread would be pages and pages long. it'd be easier and more peaceful to say who *doesn't* deserve a f1 drive

I seriously doubt Nicolas would outpace any of those guys over a proper single seater campaign.

Jani is a massive lost talent, and Jerome has already proved his worth in both GP2 and F1.

I appreciate you fullsome support of him though.

As it was said before this is not the topic of this thread.

I just wanted to explain the gravity situation as what was said before was uncorrect.

Anyone who has seen Prost run in the lmp1 knows that he deserves an evaluation. I agree with you Jani is a massive lost talent, but I have no doubt Prost is better than D'Ambrosio.

Change of subject. Does anyone know what Draco will do with their second driver?

It was the place to go at the end o 09 but does not seem so fancy anymore

perhaps in part to the fact the drivers they've had have either lost their own way or not been quite good enough to beat everyone else? i mean, berthon was the last really strong talent, and he seemed to only be competitive when he was uber-motivated.

i guess it remains to be seen how their new daddy-investor feels about signing someone who could own his son comprehensively in every race. you've got to wonder how the departure of the morinis over the past few years will affect them.

i'm also interested to see what isr do. you get the feeling their true potential didn't show last year much of the time.

I guess ISR flourished with the two superstar drivers they've had recently: Guerrieri (particularly) and Ricciardo.

I wonder if Salaquarda will make it back to ISR now Superleague has folded

Good glad Nick's back. Really hope he can follow through on the immense promise he showed last year.

Will the team stifle that though?

Peter, you shouldn't be thinking like that. There is more to life than motorsport and the fact that you have supported your son to the best of your ability will be rewarded.

I'm sure he will do well, forget the rich dads / poor dads scenario, give me a dad that actually cares and gives a s**t any day.

Alex K has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
@bella I believe I was wrong on Martsenko (BVM Target). Aleshin is back again, this time with KMP, and that's a good line up of him and Nebylitskiy.

i think nebylitskiy is a lost cause and a waste of a seat. one of not too many on the grid this year so far. not entirely convinced about aleshin returning either, presumably he's bringing a sum total of naff all for a budget otherwise it's a waste of his reputation of 2010 champion surely?

What about Canamasas? What's he doing? He was somewhat of a surprise last year.
