F1 » Kobayashi jubilant after clinching first F1 podium

Kamui Kobayashi couldn't have won his maiden F1 podium at a better place that Suzuka, as an adoring Japanese crowd chanted the name of their favourite motor racing son.

I don't understand why you didn't add Vettel's name to that list. Ofcourse Seb Vettel is a regular on podium but still you could have added him in the list of humble, honest, sporting and likeable drivers.

Taipan didnt include Vettel because there was no need to, Seb is the champion and will remain the champion, he is the best driver in the world and now coming into his prime and even Alonso is no match for him, to discredit Seb for being that good is sick, but anyway Kamui deserves the credit here he drove out of his skin and if it wasnt for another poor call from Sauber to bring him in then early after the first stint he would have beaten Massa as well. Perez gets the strategy calls and he gets a Mclaren drive yet the faster more exciting Koba is in danger of losing his Sauber drive, it all comes down to money Perez brings, I hope Jenson stuffs him next season.

He simply out paced Button's faster McLaren. Methinks Kobayashi
teammate just might be Massa. I see we have another poster who's
sanity might be in question, welcome.

Angelina, right you are. Precisely the reason he is Top Dog. The way
he driving he maybe 3x top Dog in a few weeks. He has what I like
to call 'That winning attitude'..

Humble, I can't recall any WDC winner that I would call 'humble'
Nada Amigo, most are self-important, aggressive achievers with
a single minded ambition, to succeed.
Humble, well one driver comes to mind, Jim Clark and maybe,
and I mean maybe, Graham Hill..

This is the step I've been wait for. He qualified decently and he was able to stay up front rather than fall behind in the start. Drove awesome through the race. I really hope he keeps his seat at Sauber or maybe even in a crazy world step up to Ferrari if they nix Massa. I image his would be a marketing dream for the Asian market.
