    Been just as underwelmed by Ericsson's start to this years F1 season as I was to his start to his GP2 season last year.

    He appears to be able to talk the talk whilst failing to walk the walk.

    I will wait another a couple of races before I start my 'Ericsson out. Frinjs in' campaign though (maybe).

    RasputinLives - Only Max Chilton has done more than 5 races without running into him. It's like an induction into the masons.

    Bill Boddy - I wouldn't, if I applied, there'd be so many black balls only Ronnie O'Sullivan could pot them.

    I must admit that I used to go to a Mason's Lodge once a year.

    I don't agree with the stewards here. I just think he had an accident and Massa was unfortunately in the way.

    Whilst its been completely overshadowed my Marussia scoring points at Monaco today lets just point out that Marcus Ericsson has just equaled the best placed finish in a Caterham this afternoon by finishing 11th.

    Only other person to do that was Petrov.

    Whilst he made an error in quali he was error free in the race so he has to get a bit of a pat on the back.

    Bet he regrets Bianchi getting past though.

    No one has talked about this much but Mr Ericsson was nearly a second slower in qualifying than his new boy team mate who hadn't driven an F1 car in 9 years!

    Not great Marcus. I'm thinking you might be discarded to the 'drivers no one remembers' pile with Caterhams driver before you Van Der Garde.

    At least he got a thread on CTA though - Van Der Garde never did.

    He couldn't hold Chilton at bay in the race either - bleurgh. Lucky for him Lotterer retired early I suspect.

    Nearly 2 seconds down on Kobayashi and 4.5 seconds from Q2. This man is not good enough to be in Formula One, RasputinLives please start the Frinjs campaign.

    teabagyokel well it worked with Bottas and Bianchi but I think we have our work cut out with Frinjs as he's been out of the limelight for about 2 seasons now and others are more prominent. I'm already considering campaigns for Vandorne, Marchellio and JEV.

    As for Marcus Ericsson - What can I say thats nice? I'd rather see him in the seat that Sergio Canamasas?

    RasputinLives - I was, of course, referring to post #21...

    At least that'd be entertaining in a way!

    It appears Ericsson is starting a campaign of his own.

    Not lacking on ambition then - just talent.

    "At the moment I want to establish myself as a Formula One driver. That's my number one goal and to make sure that I'm staying here for many years, but then of course as a racer you want to win. There's no question about that, so that's the ultimate goal."

    I often wonder why drivers who claim to be "racers" are happy to drive round in a crappy car at the back of the field just because it's F1. I'm sure Ericsson could be challenging at the front in DTM, LMP2 or WTCC rather than looking like a bit of a tit in F1.
