Think he missed a “p” there in the title.
But yeah, I really like how he goes about his races and hope he gets a decent seat. Which, at the moment, doesn’t necessarily mean he would have to move to another team even.
 Really Steph? I agree with you that he seems to make overtaking him not too difficult, but actually, I think that’s partly because he’s one of very few who play it safe with the whole “1 defensive move” thing. And it doesn’t penalise him as much as some other drivers, because he’s not afraid to have a go at taking the place right back again.
But playing it safe with that 1 move rule, also means he’s not putting other drivers at risk. Perhaps it means other drivers don’t mind overtaking him and that they don’t mind battling with him, because they know he will give them plenty of space to stay on track and make their moves.
I realise my opinion is based more on his racing than outright pace, but I think his pace is limited more by his car than anything at this point, although as you point out, that is perhaps hard to judge compared to his rookie team-mate. To say he wasn’t very impressive last year because Heidfeld managed to slot right in and be almost up to his speed straight away, is a bit unfair to him as well though. Because remember, Heidfeld was a member of that very same team and the car was designed while Heidfeld was in that team.
I realise that’s all conjecture, but so are any and all of our opinions ;)
