Right then, before all the usual idiots appear from the woodwork slagging Bruno off etc about only getting there on his name and having no talent (winner of multiple GP2 races and nearly the championship in 2009!).....

Can we just give the boy a chance and give an opinion after the race weekend?

Good luck Bruno! :)

Wow, he must be getting sick of beating his team mates (including Kubica, Raikkonen and Massa) and then being told they are better than him.

His qualifying has been pretty poor though.

@nick FTW - lmao!

I think this decision is pretty unfair on Heidfeld - he might not have been great but he hasn't been awful, especially as he didn't have much prep time. Plus I don't think even Kubica could have done that much more with the car. But if Renault feel Heidfeld isn't doing the job, then better to replace him than just constantly snipe like they have been doing.

Personally from what I've seen I doubt Senna will do better, but he's got the chance now, he just has to grab it with both hands and I wish him luck.

nick has been shafted. nearly all his performances have been affected by mechanical faults, or by damage caused by others (including his team mate) running into him. i hope he gets a seat in a more decent team next year!

Senna and money have arrived, old Nick gets the boot.
Boullier will get to test two drivers (not rookies)
and top off Renault's bank account. Nick has been around F1 for a long time. Maybe his time is up, time to move on. Richard clams Nick got the shaft, maybe so.
This is the world of F1, beaning fair, truthful or
correct is not essential. Money rules, that simple.
Count the team points from now until seasons end.
Renault may see the light and send that cruddy shaft
in Boullier's direction.
