renault seem to be on the up, while mercedes appear to be attempting to pull a rabbit out of a hat, only to realise that ross brawn and michael schumacher arent magicians, kubica will quietly make people take notice by making us believe that the renault could possibly catch the ferraris

Renault has the pace to run with Mercedes. Look carefully at the last race. Iam sure if Rosberg could passed Shuey he would have no problem moving up the field. Shuey the WDC was holding the show up. At lap 40 the WDC man was 36.6 sec off the front runners...Dam slow.. one would think that champ would have pulled over and let the youngster have a go.

What Renault needs is a second experience quick driver they would have more points, the car is very competitive. Renault chouse of second driver I knew it would cost them some points. Petrov is doing a very good job for a rookie (pay) driver, Hell he may give some creditability to beening a pay driver..
Hope not!

I don't think that Schumacher was holding up Rosberg in the last race. It did look like Rosberg was holding Kubica though to me. Certainly in the first half of the race. I can see Renault fighting for fourth in the constructors championship, maybe even third if they continue their current trend and Petrov continues to improve.

Schumacher, Rosberg, Kubica and Massa had very similar pace but Rosberg would not attempt to overtake Schumacher (never!!!) so he didnt have any reason to hurry and keep up with MS.

@ cobalt,
Never, well Rubins was in the same position form many seasons..I really believe Rosberg would have overtaken Shuey if given the "word".

The man has 7 WDC and a new car developed just for him, still he looks to me he is on cruse control on the interstate..He showed some aggregation doing qualifying, off he went, big time.

Renault's Petrov looks to be the real thing, coming into the point for Renault.

Renault is on the pace w/Merc now. time for the WDC to step up the pace or get off the pot!
