Little Nelson seems to finally have gotten his head straight, found some confidence, and finally performed well. He certainly surprised me.
The future will tell if he really is champion material.
Thanks for the kind invite. I hope to be able to see your Country sometime in the future.
A good friend just bought a beach house near Arequipa, Peru, the other coast.

BTW, we just had a nice W126 GTG here with members coming from as far as Australia (W126 thread).
One Argentine acquaintance of mine here used to be Juan Manuel Fangios personal mechanic, the five times F-1 World Champion had taken with him, when he raced for Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Ferrari, and Mercedes.
Great stories.

We should be thankful that we are in an era where no one car is dominant right now. They have different strengths and weaknesses on different days and any one of the top 8 drivers could win. This is a great era in F1. Bring on Valencia. As an all-new circuit it is even more difficult to predict.

I am not sure about Piquet. Really he is just a great talent still learning his craft. A number of other great drivers that could take that Renault seat while Piquet learns so I believe he is very lucky. Other great talents like Sutil, Bourdais and Vettel do it tough in the lower tier teams and perhaps they will be better for it when they do progress up to top tier teams.

Piquet Jr. may get better but he has to beat Hamilton. All things being equal, like learning curve and car development, Piquet is already too far behind.

I agree. He can do the job. But as with most drivers, you only achieve genuine dominance when your car and team are that bit better than everybody else.

Senna was one rare exception to the rule - he didn't give a monkeys about anybody else, just focused solely on what he had to do with what he was given. The only time you ever saw him concerned about anybody else was whenever there was an accident - then the humane side would come out.
