What, exactly, has he done that is so fantastic?
I don’t think he’s done anything to be “fantastic”. I don’t think anyone thinks he’s “fantastic”. I merely said I’m not writing him off so early based on his less-than-ideal start in F1.
Alonso had a full year with Minardi and then a year off to develop his racing with Renault, and was in a great position to fight for podiums from the start in 2003.
Bruno had half-a-year in a car arguably worse than Alonso’s Minardi was in comparison to the rest of the field in a poorly organised team that had only just entered F1, and somehow, somewhere, despite having his car fail on him in the majority of the races he entered, he became a failure…
I don’t actually know if he’s World Championship material, which is why I’m not saying he’s good or bad based on the little we know of him. Give him a chance before making judgements as harsh as that. It’s like saying Charles Pic is a terrible driver — maybe he is — but no-one knows that, do they?
