F1 » Kubica: Brazilian GP tough


Robert Kubica: I spent every lap in traffic but I didn't have enough of a performance advantage over Hülkenberg to get past: I was losing a lot of time in the low-speed corners, and I couldn't use our top speed advantage because I was stuck on the rev limiter for a long time on the main straight, so couldn't attack him.

Too bad Kubica does not drive an armored mclaren mercedes, then he could have just smashed through traffic and the five cars in front of him like Daniel Toni! Robert's only chance was having a damp race where the renault seemed to work the best on intermediate wets. Hopefully Renault can field a better car next year, although historically a maximum three teams fight for the title, and with perenial favorites ferrari and mclaren, it will be difficult considering red bulls emergence and mercedes certainly having focused on next year's car some time ago. Can renault change history?

Robert was so good on intermediates in practice but on dry tyres he was nowhere. If only it rained.

Pit stop strategy and safety car made it even worse.

The start was good but after that a bit dreary.

When is the next rally?

I am not sure about the next year. Renault wants out and from the rumours Lotus (Proton) are not going to bring in that much, $60m over 3 years.

A win looks over optimistic never mind a championship :? Hope for a miracle thou.

Too bad they didn't kidnap Button, McLaren could have picked up Kubica. I kid I kid, before everybody gets their panites up in a bunch I am just kidding.

How many Lotuses will there be? Will the new Renault Team be called "The Real Lotus Team"?

Can't they just become the Genii in a bottle team?

Then Nick Heidfeld and Tim Glock can do I dream of Genii?

Will Lotus allow LADA to sponsor the car?
I have to stop drinking and writing in the forum.
