Sure he's got talent, but this does indeed mean next to nothing. What it might do is provide a nice little boost for Romain, who's suffered a bit lately with all the criticism and also the uncertainty at Lotus. Well done and good luck next season!

Dan in the same car Vettel has battered his Austrailian teammate so in the hands of a top driver the Red Bull car is deadly.

And yes Grosjean can now join greats like Lewis who has beaten Vettel in similar spec cars outside F1 like in the 2005 season in F3.

Seems if Vettelhad the Newey type high down/force car he might not have put his rear in the wall.

herts. you never give up, do you? in case you had not noticed, grosjean was beaten by DC on saturday! that says a lot, doesnt it?

and pray tell me, why has lulu never been invited to compete in the roc? maybe he was afraid to be up against better drivers?

roc is a fun event and nobody takes it seriously. as there are a number of widely different cars, of course there will be some who excel in one type or another. and seb was only beaten due to a broken wishbone. he had won all his races up till then.

and did you hear that seb and schumi were having so much fun on friday, trying to see who could jump the furthest on the flyover, that the organisers had to put a chicane to try and save the cars!

and another interesting fact is that generally, it is the rally drivers who excel on these very tight tracks.

this is off topic, so forgive me.

my heart goes out to the parents , friends and countrymen of the poor children and teachers who were the victims of such a terrible attrocity in newtown. i am not sure if any posters here are from that area or not.

as a grandfather of two 5 year old girls, i cannot begin to imagine the distress suffered by the kin of these young victims.

and then there is the severe trauma of the survivors, who at such a young age, witnessed something that nobody should ever have to see.

god bless.

Oh dear RGB as each day passes you have to scrape a bit lower down the barrel to find "Lulu is great stats"

Today's gem is Lulu is great because he beat a rookie schoolboy in F3. I wonder if Lulu would prefer to have that epic record or 3 WDC trophies?

Well said Richard, a truly awful event my thoughts are with all involved.

Richard, There's always one (often more!)

I lived in Dunblane in '96 when a similar thing happened there, I can't begin to explain how bad it was but messages of support from around the World did help.
