F1 » Hartley regards Scuderia Toro Rosso test as 'big opportunity'

What planet are you on Chris? Nothing special? So you are saying anyone in the world can go out and beat 40 other drivers to the '07 Formula Renault Eurocup championship? That anyone can win races in F3 and set fastest laps like no one else? I'd be pretty happy to go from 20th to 3rd in the Macau GP and set fastest lap.

Shit, maybe I should of been a racing driver cause I'm nothing special as far as driving talent but would be mighty pleased to have a CV like his. Not to mention in NZ he was racing guys at least 5 years older than him in every category

@ Chris

Why the hostility? You should be pleased NZ has actually found someone who can drive fast! Don't see Jonny Reid anywhere near F1. Hartley will probably be Red Bull 3rd driver next season, unless Ricciardo or Bortolotti blow him away at the test.
