Calvin: "He wouldn't go that low, would he?"

I certainly wouldn't want him in my fantasy F1 team and think he's lucky if he is offered it considering the talent around that would love to get any sort of F1 seat.

He'd driven for Arrows as both a test driver and a race driver and for Jaguar before moving to Mclaren as a test driver, and in those days they had testing and that meant he was driving the cars every week whilst the race drivers were often out doing marketing and PR events. So he knew the car well. He had about half a season in the Mcl race seat when Montoya left and he didn't disgrace himself but he wasn't anything special.

For the next season Mclaren basically had a choice between keeping dlR in the race seat or putting in Hamilton. Hamilton was immediately on the pace and competing with Alonso. I can't believe dlR would ever have been able to compete with Alonso and Mclaren obviously made the right choice.

What is this guy doing hanging around F1 like a bad smell? He doesn't cut it in top cars, how can he possibly cut it in a Hispania? Maybe it's for the testing experience he has. Nothing else. If Massa, Heiki and Barichello are division 2 drivers, he must be division 4 lool
