even though Renault where obviously off the pace in Singapore I find it hard to believe Kubica couldn't have finished in a higher position than Senna or Petrov. it seems like the blind leading the blind at Renault these days.

Hold on, wasn't axing Nick supposed to stop the "downward spiral"? Wasn't miracle kid Senna going to challenge Vettel? OK that's OT.

Senna has impressed, pushing Petrov hard when Petrov thought that he was the number one guy, maybe some mental management issues for him to deal with. The car has had flashes of brilliance, but needs some major and effective upgrades to salvage anything from this season. My biggest complaint with the team is alluded to in one of the comments above and that i
