George- Yes, The Schu got away with ALOT in the past 3 years the other boys would not have!
I wished him better, and a victory, in his comeback but sadly not….. and maybe he should have left it alone….. Eccelstone’s ‘Hurt the legend’ comments are correct. But Di Resta’s ‘pain in the arse’ comments, while yes a piss take, show drivers like him (2nd tier) still found him REAL hard to beat at 43.
Most would agree that the 2nd tier boys this year were Maldonardo, Perez, Hulkenburg, Di Resta & KK.
2 stayed put, 1 went sideways, one pushed out of f1 :( and the other to the top. I think Checo is the only one here where the guys in F1, that know more than all of us, thought “We need to get this guy in a fast car”- and McLaren won there. They saw potential like Ayrton or Shumacher. (Not saying he is as good, just the X factor)
Di Resta doesnt fit this mould….. and I think gets ahead of himself with “Dissapointed to be snubbed by top teams” comments as he doesnt deserve that on performance or potential at this stage. His team mate this year does, and I hope he will, but one driver who has failed to show some great progress after initial potential IMO.
