Mario Theissen: We want to concentrate on the next season... We achived everything we wanted in 2008.

Yeap. Right. You should listened to Kubica Herr Theissen. But you prefered to equal chances for the "Quick Nick" then go for championship. Shame.

I really wish him all the best although I am worried that he's not going to enjoy Pirelli's as the plans are for boosting fronts that will lead to benefit drivers that prefer natural oversteer balance in their cars i.e. Lewis/Schumi at most while Rob/Fernando on the opposite may suffer a bit (or at least they will not be able to drive thier natural way...) Kubica was able to squeeze the most of the cars performance with 2006's Michelins - as the cars balance depended on understeer that enabled him to lean on the out-front, but the high-grip understeer Michelins got him perfectly into apex in the final stage of the corner entry and that allowed for much higher entry speeds. But who will manage if not him...?

It's not like the old days where the balance of the car could be so extreme. The balance of the car is the same for all and the tires are NOT going to make that much difference as to allow the oversteer group to have ANY major advantage. The talk on tires should be more about degradation than about who they will suit.

robO1 - the ballance of the car is not the same for all. The 2011 specs allow for a heavier car so with the KERS the taller drivers are not penalized. This reg allows the engineers to more evenly distribute the ballance unlike the 2009 year where Kubica's car was undrivable for a person his height.

I hope Lotus will come up with something fast this year. If the car is good Robert will make the most of it. He doesnt have a rigid driving style and can easily adapt to whatever is thrown at him.

This is his best option for now. Ferrari has Alonso and McLaren has Lewis. If MAssa has another bad year, Ferrai will vacate the seat, but there are many at Ferrari that prefer Vettel over Kubica. If Vettel leaves Red Bull, they would be foolish not to pickl him up, but Dr. Evil Marko would certainly not want a Pole on his team, opting for a deutsche driver. Good Luck Robert! Hands down one of the top 7 drivers in F1 that do not need a "sponsor" to secure a seat and can fight for a championship with a competitive package.
