How is Alguersuari average at best ? The car is average at best... he was well above average during the second half of the season. He was picking up good point scoring finishes a lot and racing and beating people in cars that were much better. Spa he qualified 6th which i think in a Toro Rosso is better than average. Ricciado seems like a good driver not sure about Verge but he seems like an arrogant pr@t ny what he's been saying lately. Alguersuari and Ricciado would've been a good team.

I kind of agree with the point about Red Bull needing amazing drivers to replace their main line up (when the time comes).... but I'd like to put Jaime in a Red Bull and see how close to Webber's times he could get.. closer than Webber can get to Vettel possibly?

I guess it takes a average driver to know one !!
Any one remember Berger having his behind handed to him by Senna who gave him a win because they were mates.

People saying these drivers could do better than Webber seem to forget some of the things Webber did in an average car - like qualifying a Jaguar, which was probably worse than the Torro Rosso, on the front row, or challenging for a win in the Williams (which was a dog) at Monaco (before his engine blew) including lapping his team mate Rosberg. I do agree that the two TR drivers were treated harshly, but saying that what they have done suggests they are as fast as Webber is a bit far fetched. Webber wasn't on his game this year, but still managed the fastest lap in 7 races - one of the few things he beat Vettel at this year (and it's clear Vettel tries hard for those too, but only getting 3 this year).
