From the testing in Spain, Pastor has proven conclusively that he is blindingly fast as Gerald Lopez has said. So obviously he would make an excellent test driver for Lotus. But when he is on the track surrounded by 21 other cars, - not so much,

Hmm... When there's only one space on the podium left it's hard to imagine with the likes of Force India, Williams, Red Bull and Ferrari ahead of them. This also happens to be a track which suits FI's car so they'll be even more competitive than in Spain. And don't forget Grosjean who is obviously the better of the two.

Don't get ahead of yourself, Pastor. Dream is right - perhaps some points would be a more appropriate target before you start thinking of podiums, particularly at Monaco.

We all know that testing times mean very little, if anything at all. Chilton going quickest on day one clearly demonstrates this point.

With Mercedes well in front of everyone, Red Bull clearly the best of the rest, then Ferrari, Williams and Force India scrapping for third best team, I just can't see Lotus being anywhere near the podium - especially Maldonado.

Maldonado will be lucky to finish the race (he has never finished a race at Monaco in F1), let alone get in the points (for the first time this season, don't forget), let alone get on the steps of the royal box.
