Massa and Kubica, Japan 2007
I’m not convinced the Williams was the fourth best car in 2009. It wasn’t as bad as Nakajima made it look though.
I do remember that race…I wondered if he was low on fuel but there was no mention of that afterwards. Rosberg put it down to the dirty air which does seem a crap excuse.
The Clive James ones are essential viewing. Most of them are on youtube still I think.
I saw the back of my eyelids a lot as DRS, KERS and Pirelli managed to make overtaking boring.
Seriously, I can’t remember the last F1 race I didn’t fall asleep watching. Don’t seem to have this problem with other series.
People give Rosberg a hard time. I’m not sure how much better he could have done in the cars he’s driven. He was such a consistent points scorer at Williams and has carried that on at Mercedes. He’s looking at being 7th in the WDC for the third time in a row which is the best possible when you haven’t been in a McLaren/Ferrari/Red Bull/Brawn.
Williams and Jordan also had a rear wheel braking system in place when it was banned. I can’t see it being reintroduced because FIA don’t like to see too high cornering speeds. McLaren still like the idea though and stick a similar system on their road car.
