I think they are already
No doubt they will win a few this year.
I hope this isn't a downward spiral for Massa. After a good start, he fell off quite a bit.
He isn't at FA's level and never will be.
Earlier I mentioned the term "Elite" drivers....
FWIW, and strictly IMO, there are four Elite F1 drivers (in no particular order):
These are guys who demonstrated skills and results others seemingly do not possess.
At the next level are these guys (again IMO).
Guys on the bubble: Grosjean, Maldy, and Perez.
This year is an opportunity for them to show they are "special" and deserve a real career in the sport.
All of the rest of the guys on the grid are those who haven't really proved they belong.
And the guy I am really watching this year is Bianchi...he has impressed.Edited by oink - 4/15/13 at 10:57am
