    equal condition Barrichello is hard to be beaten.

    I personally think that Bourdais and Barichello should be side by side next year at Toro Rosso. Just remember that Bourdais won lots of Cart Championships and Barichello is the most experianced man in F1 and has still got it. Maybe not to win a championship but a race. Look at the stunning performance in the wet at silverstone he gave now that’s got to be worth taking into consideration. Fair enough it was the ran that got him 3rd but never the less it’s always good having a wet whether specialist on board.

  3. Post 30 (Pete Walker) – Hope you’re right :)
    I do hope Buemi does not take Bourdais place..Bourdais had a depressingly unlucky season..

  4. Torro Roso should go for Sato and Senna..

    and swim in all the money like Uncle Scrooge :)

  5. Senna, to see if he is as good as he says he is, and Bourdais, because I think he will improve and mature in his second year…..

    Pantano did race for Jordan But i think his proved he can still be a great driver if you look at his achievements in GP2.I think they could at leat give him a test.It wouldnt hurt them to let him try.

    All you Bourdais supporters should note his results today against Buemi…. not impressive…

    Snowcat – I wouldn’t use off-season test times as a basis for comparisons between team mates unless the team explicitly said they’re in a shoot-out and running the same configurations at roughly the same time. Unless we’re looking at a group of test days where one driver has been consistently faster than another, and even then it’s dodgy ground. That said, I think Buemi’s got promise, I’d just rather see him in GP2 for another season first.

    But I think they have billed it as a shootout Keith….

    Hence my comment….

    Bourdais only has today and half of tomorrow before giving way to Mr Sato….

    Well I tried to find out on the Toro Rosso site but their link to the test report was broken. D’oh!

    Perhaps they are cost cutting….

    Let’s hope their car isn’t as fragile….

    Sato and Button, first choice, definitely

  13. button and senna

    they would be great at toro rosso

  14. i like bourdais but i would like to see jenson and senna have the drive.
    senna is young, fast and exciting and jenson is well ordering his last glass of moet at the last chance saloon.

    let the fireworks begin.
