F1 » D'Ambrosio: F1 dream not over


Jerome d'Ambrosio: Without saying any names, we have discussed various options [for 2012]. My situation is the same as last year, except that I have done a very good season and I have not gone unnoticed in the paddock.

unfortunately it is, that is unless you can find a few million more in sponsorship money! if marussia, the tail end charlies, do not find you good enough for them, i doubt that there is any other team that would consider you. perhaps a year or two in gp2 could show us what you can do.

Ok, so I'm Belgian, i might be biased...though he's a french speaking belgian, so not a whole lot, lol

But the guy did a great job, hardly made mistakes and near the end of the season was outperforming glock from time to time....not bad for a rookie.
He's managed by Boullier, don't know wether that's a good thing or not. Would be cool to see him alongside kimi, or to replace trulli, time for ol' jarno to fully concentrate on his wine buisness.

I didn't think he had done too badly, but in a car like the Virgin, I guess you'd have to really shine to make any sort of ggod impression. I guess he has some money behind him or he wouldn't have been there in the first place.

Richard, what on Earth are you talking about? For the second year in a row Timo Glock has been outclassed by his rookie team-mate. Di Grassi beat him in 2010, and d'Ambrosio beat him in 2010. The difference between the two is that Jerome was ahead of Glock in the drivers standings for almost the entire year. It's the same situation in MVR now that it was back at the end of '10 which gave Jerome his shot in F1. Do you not recall di Grassi stating that MVR had told him if it was about performance, he would have been retained? MVR gave Jerome a glowing review and thanks after the race speaking on the BBC F1 Forum, he's proven to them that he's a good young driver by beating his experienced team-mate who also happens to be the lead driver. I think it's actually quite unfair that you've judged him so harshly.

what the. i didnt even mention glock! i can guarantee that after his dismal showing this year, that d'amrosio is not on anyones list of potential drivers for 2012.
as i said, his only option is to go to gp2 and try to make a reputation for himself.
