Paul certainly is a talented and entertaining racer.
As for Bourdais I really don't know where he goes from here- I never understood why he moved to F1 at his age when the rookies these days are 10 years younger and especially not to a team like Toro Rosso who is not noted for its treatment of drivers........still he must have known what he was doing or had very bad avice.

Are you people serious? First of all Paul Tracys fat head never looked so over rated..than ever before.. hes past his prime. And for bourdais.. Tracy wishes he could even have options to go to F1. Tracy is no were near the calibur that bourdais is in. Its pretty obvious, bourdais didnt have as many sponsors as his replacement and RedBull kinda screwed him over..They didnt even give him the chance to race witht he upgrades that go on this weekend. He was in a turtle to begin with. Tracy is just scared to seeing nothing but bourdais beat him AGAIN AND AGAIN. Tracy needs to let his talking show on the track.(which he doesnt) haha

The bottom line is Paul Tracy was jealous of the fact that Bourdais was able to reach F1 even although for only a short period of time, something that Tracy wasn't able to accomplish. Tracy had a F1 test with Benetton in 1994, in which the team didn't find him to be very impressive.

Yeah well so what-------Bourdais didn't exactly throb the track either did he? neither did the highly acclaimed Scott Speed.......funny though how they all got chances with Red Bull B team who now seem to have decided they would rather give their own youngsters a go. Nothing wrong with that.

Bourdais is boring on the track, that's when he's on the track that is!

Hey C, you are right, there is nothing wrong with giving their own youngsters a chance, but let's be honest, expecting Speed and Bourdais to "throb" on the track in those tractors was a little ambitious. I think even Alonso, Kimi and Hamilton would look crap in those cars, maybe it was a drive for them, but not a "chance" to be honest.

totally agree. Toro Rosso not known for their "nice" treatment of drivers. But we will see..Buemi seems to be holding his own and Alguersuari at least managed to finish his first GP without incident-------lets see how he does.
