I expect him to do better next year. This year he had some bad luck, especially at the beginning of the season. He´s very quick, but I think he doesn´t have much of a chance against Hamilton. So the perfect number 1b for McLaren. I definitely think he´s better than Rosberg. Who was also rumored to get that seat.

I feel sorry for Kovalainen. This means he's stuck being Lewis' footstool for another year. Poor bloke :sad:

I was thinking the same thing. Funny how "Honest Ron" claims equality for both drivers, and then we see Heikki pulling over for Hamilton in Hungary just after Ron calls the pit wall. On the other hand, Heikki seems content with being the number two driver at the moment...

He's worthy of a McLaren drive. He was even before his maiden win in Hungary.

The 2nd part of last season was enough to show that he is worthy of a mcLaren seat.

mclaren need another year of stability and if heikki doesn't start challenging more then i'd say get rosberg or kubica if ferrari haven't pounced on him by then.

Hamilton and Kovalainen work good together and the morale is good within the team.
