At the time, I couldn't understand why he was dropped for Petrov (aside from the $$ aspect). I thought he did very well given the circumstances of his debut and I firmly believe that he would of done a whole lot better than Petrov in 2010. Granted, however, that Petrov has lifted his game significantly this season.

Senna has more to prove. His qualifying result at Spa was very good, but he was entirely to blame for a large chunk of the carnage at la Source. I do think that he is trading on his uncle's name to some degree, as well as Brazilian $$. Renault are running 2 pay drivers now, how do we think this will pan out?

I would be pleased to see Grosjean in a race seat in 2012, however I think Hulkenberg deserves a permanent ride first.

An announcment today that Lotus Renault have received more finances from Brazil until the end of the season, while Eric shouts from the rooftops at no one in particular, that he has a driver (who Eric is involved in the management of), who is the newly crowned GP2 champion, he also just happens to be French., LRGP coincidentally are powered by a french automaker, nice sales pitch! It may also be coincidental that he has Bernie Ecclestones initials 'backwards'!
