Grosjean – I must admit that in 2009 I totally wrote him off and never thought for a second he’d be back in F1. But today he was very impressive. Renault clearly have a very good car, but for Grosjean to get into third was amazing. I’m still not totally convinced of him- I doubt very much he’ll end the race on the podium. Then again, he’s young and has plenty of time to improve.
di Resta – Clearly very capable and I was very impressed with him last year. However I think Sutil made him look a bit better than he actually was. I never rated Sutil very highly, and I don’t think di Resta beating him was as big a deal as it seemed. In short, I think Hulkenberg is very capable of being WC one day.
Hulkenberg – I my opinion, the best of the bunch. He should never have been sacked by Williams, and frankly I think he deserves better than Force India right now. He’s already proved that he has the raw speed, and he’s definitely a very capable racer- more so than di Resta in my opinion.
Kobayashi – In 2009 he was hugely impressive, but he’s been somewhat underwhelming since. He’s a solid racer and is a reliable source of points, but I don’t think he’s World Champion material.
Perez – We haven’t seen the best of Perez yet and I’m not really sure what I think about him.
Petrov – I think he’s still got more to show and will improve. His problem now is that it’s going to be very difficult to move back up the grid to a better team.
