Always said Hulk was going to finish in front of Di Resta this year. DR is primarily good at whinging about nothing, like his uncle when things don't go his way. For instance in qualifying I liked how he was complaining about traffic from a McLaren in the last sector and then BBC showed his onboard footage and there was nobody in front of him except a McLaren that had already moved well out of the way before he could even see him. "Well you can't see it here..."

Right. EJ and Jake gave each other a look and smirked a bit and then EJ went on to say what's really going on: he needs to beat his teammate to get a call from a big team and it isn't happening.

He's a good driver, but beat by Sutil last year and beat by Hulk this year = bye bye topteam dream.

Hulk has speed but still drives like a gp2 driver when under pressure he becomes clumsy, goes off track, misses a chicane or makes contact. He needs to sort that out if he's to be the Sauber senior driver along with the other paid mexican next year.

Too bad for SFI to lose out on Hulk next year. I don't think Paul is in anyway a bad driver over a single lap. He just lacks a bit of race craft compared to Hulk as I see.
He needs to work on it over the next year else even force india might start looking somewhere else.
Alguersuari is near about confirmed to partner PDR, but who knows?!! with a shift of dice we might see Sutil or even Kovie in the other force india

Guess his patience did run out at Force India. I would also dare say this is going to lose Kobayashi his drive. Sauber will probably sign Gutierrez (talented and they need his sponsorship money) and to be honest if I had to pick between Hulkenberg and Kobayashi I'd be the Hulk.

That Force India seat is interesting though. Lots of names linked with that.
