    @raymondu999 Well wouldya look at that. Huh. Wouldn’t be a bad season to repeat!
    I wouldn’t exactly call Sauber fighting at the top of midfield in 2010 though. They came 8th in the constructors championship with 40 something points and never came higher than 6th. I wanna see them in a tussle for a podium once or twice next year!
