Congratulation to Kobayashi and Sauber team.
In F1, you need luck. I hope now he broke the barrier today. I hope he will be podium often in future.
I hard during the race on BBC, someone was talking in back about Kobayashi as not a talent Japanese driver and his team mate has been on 3 podiums. I don't know he was but it was not a Martin.
How can he be on podium often when he was not getting equal resource and good strategy like his team mate?
What Perez did today was stupid. That's why Ferrari said Perez was not ready for Ferrari car.
Now the reality of McLean signing Perez has come out this week. Perez's sponsor will go to McLean in 2014.
Only Perez has biggest financial backer in current F1.
He is fast but takes too many risk and consistency problem.
Perez and Maldonado are same. They take too many risks but sometime lucky and sometime bad luck.
Kobayashi is very aggressive in his first year and then he develops steady and he makes fewer mistakes than his team mate.
I'll be very d

He should have been on the podium much before Suzuka, you just did not have luck. Looking at him on the podium at Suzuka doesn't make me feel very happy, considering his bad luck. Anyway, you still have 5 races, get more podiums.

Great day for Kamui, great day for Japan.

And to see two drivers as humble, honest, sporting and likeable as Kamui and Felipe on the podium is a great day for F1 in my opinion, congratulations to both of them.
