We'll see how far he can go over the course of the season. he might make some mistakes too along the way, he's a rookie. But I must admit that I've been pretty impressed by his driving so far. I looked at the "statistics" of the Australian GP, if you rank all the drivers by their best lap time during the race, Bianchi is 11th! his best lap in race was better than Sutil's one, and quite close to Vettel's! all that with a Marussia-Cosworth!

jimmy. there is no doubt that jules is a good driver, but to suggest that he deserves a ferrari seat over massa, is just plain stupid.
did you watch the race on sunday? flip qualified ahead of alonso and was beating him in the race, until the team arranged for alonso to pass.

and look at the last couple of races last year, when flip again was faster than ferdi.

by your odd reasoning, jules should actually be replacing ferdi. now, that would be nice!

DiResta will get booted halfway through and Bianchi will get the Force India drive. Webber will get booted halfway through and Bianchi will get the RB drive. Massa will get booted halfway through and Bianchi will get the Ferrari drive.
