I like Petrov he is not intimidated and does not diffur to any driver on track. It's a little early for the Victory parade though. It's gonna be funny listening to Renault next time he bins it, which he will. (you don't go from smash up derby to expert in one shot)

too many circumstances facilitated this podium. I don't think season opener represents the true picture, so let's wait and see before talking.

Hey Gerard, I don't know if you know...Putin was watching and the next thing you know you'll be expected to fix a race or two...that said knowing that Heidi is driving the other car that should not be an issue as he drives like granna...

Wait a few races and see, he drove a very good race though, be interesting to see how long he has the upper hand over 'quick' nick, keen to see how that battle shapes up.

Taz he looks so at home in this yrs Renault, maybe its an easier car to drive but Petrov is revelling in it. Renault are up there in the top 4 or 5 this yr no question

Nick got slammed in the rear by a ToroR or things would have been different. I think as a poster on this board says. They are getting tickled about being tickled. All this laughter is going to lead to tears.
