Kvyat is a well deserved GP3 champion – the last 3 meetings he has really dominated. As Marko would say – he’s only getting faster, and he even looks like a spit of Vettel. Maybe he will be the Vettel replacement… he did the finger after taking the title! Kvyat-Ricciardo is a direct replacement for Vettel-Webber! Felix da Costa was just unlucky – if there was a seat for 2013 he would have had it. Now he’ll be the next Buemi – simulator/test driver.
Regalia was a bit unlucky to lose 8th and a shot at race 2 win, but maybe he was optimistic to overtake Sainz off track. He would probably have passed him anyway on track. Sainz and Niederhauser were unlucky – Sainz did move a bit, trying to do a Vettel Turkey 2010 and pressure for the racing line. But they really needed reverse grid pole to improve the end of their seasons. As did Zamparelli – 3rd 9th place Feature finish of the year, amongst 10ths as well! Instead we have Kujala on pole for tomorrow… I do hope Ellinas wins the final race or podiums. We’ll then have an interesting GP2 grid for next year with Ellinas, Vandoorne in there..
