I think there's a difference between being a bit wild and being reckless. For example, overtaking at a risky part of the track but making a clean pass is a bit wild while trying to overtake but instead going off the track and then colliding with the car is being reckless.

Guess which camp Maldo falls under?

I beg to differ sennas pace in quali last year was unbelievable, his race pace not. He has focuesed bettering his race pace and has infact been very good but his qualifying has let him down. The reason for this I think is he struggles to get the tyres into the optimum performance window within a lap or two as he has a very smooth style and set up like button.

@zedd that is also an issue also but as an f1 driver you should know the track, he will be missing out on 1.5 hrs set up time which if the weather is good all weekend won't be an issue but if fp1 is good and fp2/3 is wet he has to guess as good as he can. Ideally no f1 driver should have to give his seat up but tests for reserve and test drivers are few and far between Bottas in my view should be in gp2 to gain race experience which will serve him better in the long run than a free practice he by 2013 he will have lots of time in the car but no competitive racing or race scenarios or pressure for 12 months he would get the Williams seat anyway regardless of being solely test driver or tester and gp2 driver. As for maldonado though he has been reckless his whole career. In fact I think he was once threatened with a life ban from racing at Monaco, so not much has changed
