Not only him but the GP2 Series management as well. Shame what they did to take away this title from Razia who will be remembered as the one who won the championhip on track but lost it to Valsechi's GP2 Series management gang (or should I say mafia!).

Maybe it's the opposite, GP2 bosses will try anything to make Razia win (e.g. random penalties, or accidents). In each case Valsecchi won't go to Formula 1 and Razia will, because he's Brazilian.

Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if no driver currently on the GP2 grid ever makes it to F1. Valsecchi has had too many seasons to really impress with this title, and Razia has just taken too long to make an impression too. You could probably say Valsecchi is the new Pantano.

In a way that's a bit sad because I think he might actually do well in the current version of F1 - because tyre management is one area where he's been really strong in GP2, and it is absolutely crucial at this point in F1.

Personally the only one who's looked like he might have a chance in F1 in the future is Calado, but he will need a really strong season next year to impress futher in order to get there I think. Sad but true.
