Lance Stroll is a once in a generation driver and the youngest ever front row starter who has won in every category heís entered prior to F1. As he moves up the grid itís become increasingly clear that heís destined for great things and itís only a matter of time until we celebrate his first win.

Quick Nick is a seasoned veteran of F2 finally making the step up to the Williams team. I have no doubt he will outshine the malnourished british driver at Williams and I am sure that one day he will make it to a F1 team.

It came good eventually, and led to the quite good TG183.


I think I would be a bad team principal because I would prioritize outright pace over reliability, invariably bankrupting the team.

Germany seems to produce a bunch of pretty ok drivers with the occasional standout. The UK drivers seem to be the opposite - they are either really good or really bad, with no inbetween. Who was the last really average UK driver?

My love of Nick Heidfeld is nothing to do with his driving ability or his nationality.

the UK has no average racing drivers it has extremely good drivers and then extremely bad Max Chiltons bringing it down to "average". Frankly it's only Lewis that's keeping us at the top of the table right now.
