I think Nick is underrated and I can't believe there is even a doubt over him being in F1 next year. He has been every bit as good as "Future world beater" Kubica this year.

He is not a Hamilton, Vettel or an Alonso, but he is every bit as good as a Rubens, Webber, Heikki K.... even Button. If he had been in a Brawn this year I feel he'd have been right up there too.

He's never had a great car, but he's fast, he's consistent and he doesn't throw it in the wall too often. I can't believe there wouldn't be a place for him at a half decent team, Renault, Toyota or someone. It'll be a shame to see him in a Force India or one of the new teams.

I completely agree with you Oli, I think Nick is one of the most underrated drivers I have ever seen any racing discipline. Hopefully we'll see him next year with Sauber's new (old) team
