As a tangent, it was interesting to see the old Weber in the last race.... the widest car in the paddock. I'm not in favor of lots of penalties, but I've never seen a race with so much wild swerving to block. This is a wreck waiting to happen.
That's a surprise. I like him, but he's not worth that much.
They could have Kovalinen for a third of the money. Or probably 1/10 th because he'd be happy to get the seat, and likely better results, and probably a better team player too.
