Q&A: Gary Anderson

I am a little disappointed that it is not closer. This is their fourth year going into it now and the fourth year of fairly stable regulations. They should have got on top of it a bit more. Marussia seem to have moved forward, as far as Caterham is concerned, but I don't think the two of them have moved forward much in terms of from the back of the field. They have just got closer together. The Marussia on track looks a nice car. It lacks downforce and it lacks grip. But the drivers are able to drive it consistently within what they have got. The Caterham looks like it hasn't got the downforce, but it also doesn't have the balance. It is a bit of an adventure. What would I rather have? The Marussia, I suppose. There are lots of aerodynamic tweaks and things that they don't have and other cars do have. They should progressively go forward a little bit as they add them on. At Caterham they can only optimise the bits because most of them are already on there. It is going to be a tough task for both of them to close up. The battle for tenth is going to be just as important as the battle for first and second. It is good to see all these little wars going on down the grid.

In my view Gary Anderson is head and shoulders way better than all the other commentators. I find his technical info fascinating. Interestingly he tips Alonso for WDC! - You heard it hear first!
