"From the third GP I would've done better". Sure. And when you qualified dead last and came in last as well, you'd change your song to "From the 4th GP I would've done better".

Just admit you're not God's gift to motor racing and be done with it. If you were really any good at this driving thing you wouldn't have to resort to being a test driver for a decade. Admit it, you're just not cut for this.

Sorry, Trebor901, he has got a point. The ban has ment less drivers getting the chance to try out an f1 car. They need to do something along the lines of the Indy 500 rookie tests.

Please don't make such a dumb comment as the first poster " you suck ". You should look at the bigger picture which is the testing ban.. He hasn't been racing for 10 years unlike Jamie and Grosjean who is still racing even if it's GP2. Luca is a great driver but he should have accepted the fact that he is not that quick anymore but don't discount the fact that he help Schumi and Kimi win the WDC by developing the car for them. He is good test driver and developer but not a racer.

ferrari are to blame. not him or anyone else. the drive had to go to someone else to start with.but the team wanted to give him a go for all the work hes done for them.we all know he was to slow.even before he got in the car.

Oh please... you guys are making it sounds like it's his first time in the F60. Fact is, he drives the F60 for a living, and probably clocked more mileage in that car (or any other ferrari F1 car) than Massa and Raikonen combined.

The team knows best and they know that this kind of performance from a driver who developed the car is disappointing. They gave him 2 shots and he failed on both occasion. He cant even clocked a consistent lap times when the track is clear let alone in traffic.

Face it, he really suck...

I agree with Badoer...

He didn't suck other drivers like Grojean, so he's not dangerous on track and he was never lapped....

So come back Badoer...

At least take out 5 in 1st corner, then people will obey you more..

I don't really understand what Badoer is trying to get at. You don't get overlooked as a F1 race driver for 10 years if your any good !!!!! Just shut up and collect your ferrari pension. Some drivers are quick over a lap but have no race pace or race craft. Just face it Luca you can't cut the mustard.

luca earned the chance to race a ferrari, however his excuse of the ban on in-season testing, is a very lame one. big john and alguersuari also had to contend with that, and their cars were less competitive than the ferrari, but they immediately coped, particularly jaime, who had never even sat in an F1 car. lucas downfall was his lack of recent RACING experience.
