Random fact: Vettel has completed 39 laps of the 171 racing laps so far this year. he will shine though, his retirements have been unfortunate

Vettel, because he has no point so far this season, in this case i will blame the Ferrari engine that Torro Rosso team used

Piquet.I think he was brought in because of his last name, but again the season is early, but I still don't expect much of anything out of him.

I was honestly expecting more from Vettel this year. But I guess he hasn't really had a chance to show much, with all the firs laps incidents he has been involved. I guess he should be a tad more careful in those first corners.

Vettel was unlucky in oz, but what actually happened to him in Bahrain, was it an accident or an oil leak?

All official sources say it was damage after an accident, but no one can say who he collided with and when. :huh: To me it looks like an engine thing.

On topic I'd say Sutil, I had expected more from him this year, since he often shone in the crappy Spyker last year. I've heard that he is running an older car than Fisi though, don't know if that's true.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

I have selected Piquet as I had some expectation of him. He has been a renault test driver last year & I taught he might do well. Obviously the car is not in a good shape but still he needs to gain experience. And we can always expect Alonso outperforming him but still he needs to be close to him even if he is behind him.

i think you are right about piquet, but he will probably come through like Kovy did, but he wont beat alonso in a race situation or in the championship (unless alonso retires from a race). he wont be as good as kovy, as the car is so much crapper.
NB- How have Renault made a car crapper than the r27, when it was focusing on the r28 for the second half of last year

after 3 races i choose piquet because i'm disappointing by his results, but i will be not surprising if he improve during the rest of the season (like kovalainen last year)

Piquet has finnish only once in this year and was 11th. He should have be driving last year when TC was still allowed.
