Nick Heidfeld

:D

So Nick fell down to 16th or 19th or wherever before the car caught fire and the left side grenaded itself.

Where would Nick have finished if he hadn't been put out of his misery on lap 23 given that he was running 4 or 5 or 6 places behind VP?

Couple of things - I wonder who won the competition to meet Nick H at Spa and if they will be happy to make do with Bruno instead? Secondly, if the stories about Senna replacing Hedifeld at Spa are true is this the end of Nick's F1 career or could we see him turning up at, say, Lotus to replace Trulli or even in an HRT? I can see DTM beckoning...

I don't see Nick getting a drive with any of the crap teams, he hasn't got a budget. DTM seems highly likely...he might be a good choice for BMW's new car.

I think Priaulx and Farfus are already signed to the BMW 'works' cars although i'm sure they'll have satellite teams. As i've said in the other thread, he's had his time in F1 and I can't see him buying a seat unless he can do a 'Trulli' and convince a team he's worthy of a seat because of his experience.

Is it a one off or is Senna doing the rest of the season?
Senna is in for the rest of the season

I am sure the fact its "Senna in a black and gold "Lotus - Renault"" will be the talking point

This could an unlikely lifeline for Bruno's F1 career

Off course having a bit of money helps for the "skint" team ...Dany Bahar where's the money for the team?

Kubica fans better pray this is not the end of him as well if Bruno shows well

Nick Heidfeld - the eternal bridesmaid of F1

Most GPs without a win I think
Most 2nd places without a win
Most podiums without a win
Until this season most points without a win !

I don;t think Nick is coming back to F1 unless he is a substitute driver for Sauber

Driving for lowly teams won;t help his career unless Williams suddenly ditch Rubens as the smaller teams need money from sponsors which he does not have. STR will only go to Red Bull junior drivers....Mercedes the team who supported him since his junior days I think have their future covered with Di Resta and Hulkenberg so this is the end of the line

That's Andrea de Cesaris
At least thats one unwanted stat Heidfeld wont have to worry about

Does he deserve sympathy ?

Yes - The Lotus/Renault - the team with no right to either name use are in a mess its obvious its an unhappy camp and we are not given the whole picture

No - nearly 200 GPs he's been through the ups and downs of F1 so maybe could have managed his career better

Correction: They have no right to use "Team Lotus", which they never have. They have every right to use "Group Lotus" as they are part-owned by the same company that own Group Lotus. Group lotus, Lotus Racing and Team Lotus are three different things, albeit that they are hatched from the same egg.

But there is another thread for that discussion.
