F1 » First corner pile-up ruins race for Sauber


After starting second and fourth, Sauber's high hopes for the Belgian Grand Prix were dashed at the first corner. With both drivers caught up in the melee, the sole remaining Sauber of Kamui Kobayashi could only manage a 13th place finish.

I really wish these guys could get a break!

Kobayashi is such a quick driver, and Perez is quick and solid. They have a fast car and if they can get the car consistent and the drivers they could be a real force.

What this also highlights also how dangerous a jumpstart is, putting people where they shouldn't be and distract little newbies... who drive into experienced drivers who won't put a wheel on the grass in avoidance... despite passing completly off the track earlier in the year..

To Sauber Team,
Why only Kobayashi car has always problems in Sunday if he had better qualifying?
I wish Sauber has given reliable car to Kamui Kobayashi.
Too many coincident made me funny idea stuck in my head.
Usually Kobayashi is good starter and he always gains at least 2 or 3 position at the start.
However, I rarely see him gaining position at the start in this year and frequently problems in only his car.
Most of us think something funny thing is happening in team.
I wished all the best for rest of the races in 2013.
Cheers

Amigo can you tell me why Sauber would build an unreliable car for only Koba? Do you believe in government coverups as well. Did you believe it when your kindergarden teacher told you you were a bright kid? Maybe Koba just overcooked the brakes on the formation lap? Maybe he is a slow starter? What are you smoking man
