Good weekend for Sam Bird so far. After the disappointments of Nurburgring and Hungaroring, all the hopes for the tittle were going away, but he is back in the battle for the championship. I calculated that he would must win in Monza and Abu Dhabi. Spa race went better than expected, Sam scored point that put him close to Coletti and Nasr. Now in Monza, he got a P2 in the feature race that could finish in a victory and P2 in the championship. For the left races, Singapur seems to be good for Sam who is an expert on street races (like Mónaco), I expect a podium there, and finally Abu Dhabi that is a known track for Sam, he got good results in GP2 2010 there. Probably it is the last opportunity for Bird to get the championship because is his “win or win” season if he wants to follow Bianchi’s steps going to F1.
@wsrgo Leimer is now the main contender, will be a good race in Singapur. Qualifying is crucial there, just hope that tyres don’t be primordial there because Russian Time’s car runs out the tyres very quickly like I saw in other races.
