I wouldn't celebrate too much on that one Ray as the big elephant in the room Boullier didn't mention is that bringing in Senna for Heidfeld is all about the money money!Boullier says Heidfeld didn't provide leadership and was slower than Vitaly (which we've said repeatedly only for others to say "but Heidfeld scored the same number of points as Petrov"...)
The clue is that Petrov only has a couple years experience and bought his way inI disagree that Petrov flashes of brillliance would puhim above Heidfeld.
They have the same highest finish this season and the second highest would've been Heidfeld's had it not been for Kamui "kamikaze" Kobayashi.
Hmm. Imagine if Red Bull dropped Vettel mid-season last year when he was getting beaten by Mark Webber.You don't get points for fastest laps. In terms of getting points the bearded one is the best driver available. The battle between he and Vitaly has ended and Heidfeld holds the two point victory.
Exactly!Hmm. Imagine if Red Bull dropped Vettel mid-season last year when he was getting beaten by Mark Webber.
Let's not exaggerate. Spa quail was a mix up. I got a suntan and a wet look all in the space of spectating a single lap.Exactly!
Or, after the first 4 races of 2010, McLaren declaring that Button was going to be their main title challenger.
Had Heidfeld out-scored a bona fide Number 1 driver by 2 points, it would be a different story...but given where Senna put that car at one of the most challenging circuits in F1, you have to say that neither Petrov nor Heidfeld got what was possible out of their car this year.
No one's accusing Vitaly of being a bonafide team leader and a future World Champion. And, on top of it, Heidfeld's had his 10 or 11 years of chances.
