So - how do you reckon he'll get on?

if Karma hates him of course he'll have engine failure!

i can see him doing well but not winning, although he seems to have impressed absolutely everyone so far

If he wins first time out, it makes the racing look easy (you get what I mean!) - I hope he does, but however he does, good on him - he could do with a break.  It's 12 years since he was F1 champion!

I don't think he'll win but will get a strong top ten finish.

I take your point Mook but disagree a little in that he wouldn't be the first Rookie champion and everyone agrees an awesome talent.

I want him to win and recompense for his skills being wasted in F1 for so long

I loved that vid of his practice runs - interviewed by a 'Merican and he said his head wouldn't let him keep his foot flat on the floor for the corners :grin:

Well, he's made The"Fast 9"...

Sebastien Bourdais' crash is a timely reminder of the risks...

So he starts the race on the 2nd row in P5...

Not too shabby for a rookie...

Out qualified by Takuma Sato and not for the first time at Indy (USGP 2004)

Loved the "pit radio" chat between them as JB was sat waiting the Monaco start.

I wonder if Jenson reciprocated the sentiment....

JB: "Hi Fred, good news, I didn't pee in your seat and the engine didn't blow up, however I did bin your car"

I think I'd forget to mention the engine not blowing up.

It must be the way Fred drives that causes the engines to blow up...
