At least it is still early so he can work on getting a seat in another team. Sauber? instead of dlR?

Or he must finish at least 4th in the next two races to get required 25% of Kubicas points:p

for the team to get anywhere near mercedes, petrov has to start taking points out of michael schumacher, tough job for a rookie, but it just so happens that schumacher appears to be re-learning f1 so its not a totally impossible task

I dont think Schumacher is that strong on learning. The car doesnt suit MSs driving style so Merc has to change the car for him. Every other driver has to adapt to a new car. It is a skill that MS seems to lack.

it could be his speed of learning which will give petrov a chance, it would be good for him to get another season, i think that christian klein could do a good job for renault though

koba is definatley the rookie of the year so i cant see sauber letting him go, as much as i would like to see him in a better car. if they want to beat merc heidfeld is the only man for them

@Adian, Kobayashi is not a rookie, he was a rookie last year :rolleyes:

Renault is a much better team than Sauber and would pay better. If offered a seat Kobayashi would take it.

Kimi would be the best option if Renault could get him. We will know by the end of this month, he didnt say no yet :)
