I wouldn't underestimate this boy if I were you guys. He may talk softly, but he can wield a big stick. Di Resta may be a good driver, but the Hulk has an equal opportunity. Doesn't anyone remember the Hulk putting a backmarker car on pole, for the first time in ages, back in 2010, only to be thrown to the curb by his team. Kinda reminds me of another boy who destroyed all competition, in a backmarker, at Monza in 2008.
We may be in for some big surprises.

idiot. you can also thank merc for uying a seat for diresta.

ptolomy. good analogy, but remember , the hulks pole was based on being the last out on a drying track and on slicks. whereas i have high expectations for him,his pole was a fluke.

@victor
Being nice outside the car has nothing to do with what you do on the track, just look at driver like Seb and JB.

@idiot
Not sure if the Hulk has musch association with Merc other than he's German, he definitely doesn't visit Norbert Haug as often as Di Resta!


Let just say the Hulk had real talent, but did indeed under perform during part of 10' season due in part to rookie mistake but also due to the "slow" development of the F-Duct on the FW32 early in the season.

Got to say this must be a make or break season for these two.

I think his attitude i more like Seb. Vettel step by step. He shud do better than DiResta and he is definitely faster than Di Resta, so is Sutil.
Not only better than teammate but, I hope he will establish himself as a good F1 driver maybe a top 10 driver since we have 6 WDC's, Rosberg,Webber and Massa occupying top 9 positions. Shud replace Grosjean or Kimi(if biggest upset) at Renault or Massa at Ferrari in 2013. I don't expect him to Replace Webber or take one of STR seats weather or not the seat is vacated.
