Agreed. Typical number 2 type driver. Only looked good in the second half of 2007 because his teammate Fisichella was c**p.
Kova is a decent F1 driver, but nowhere near Hamilton overall.

I really hope Whitmarsh replaces him, otherwise it wil be another dull season at McLaren. Hamilton needs a top teammate like Hamilton to make things interesting, everything else is like breakfast for him :)

The same with Alonso, in 2005 and 2006 Fisico was a class underneath him and we don´t need to talk about Piquet :)

2007 was so interesting, because both Hamilton and Alonso had a world class teammate.

I hope Hamilton gets Kimi next year and Massa will be as strong as 2008 against Alonso, then we might have a cracker of a season.

And I also hope the Ferrari and McLaren cars are a second faster per lap than the rest like in 2007.

well Ferrari need to be mate.
they have ruined the second half of the season by just focusing on 2010's car and if they are not fast then some people need to get fired.

I think the only way we can have guaranteed overtaking in every race is to invert the qualifying order so that the fastest cars are at the back and the slower guys start up front. The last race in Brazil was good because we had some of the quickest guys on the grid (Hamilton, Button, Vettel) starting down at the back and scrambling to the front. That's also why the 2005 japanese gp was so legendary, with Alonso and Kimi starting in 16th and 17th and finishing on the podium. From a sporting perspective, having the fastest drivers starting up front is perfectly fine, but chances are we would end up with a procession.

Lets face it. If a car A is following a car B and neither driver makes any mistakes, then car A can only pass car B if car A is considerably faster than car B.
