With RH you have to read between the lines somtimes, I think. I would be really worried if I were Junior.Not based on this article, just in general. I'd hate to be under all the pressure he is now, that's for sure!

Rick Hendrick needs to do something about the #88, however, changing of crew chiefs will not fix it, changing of color of number and style of number will not fix it and any change devoid of a drastic change in either the driver or the attitude and work ethic of the driver will not fix it.

Everybody knows that Joonyer is the weak link in that organization and on that team, he does not have the ability to drive the new car that is mostly devoid of all the aero advantages he was used to in the other car. Joonyer has the look of a defeated driver, a driver out of luck, out of ideas and out of ability to recover as a winning driver. Rick Hendrick needs a sit down meeting with Joonyer to map out a plan for next year, a plan that would include an extensive work out plan to get Joonyer in better shape for the last part of races, a remedial course in ability to communicate with the crew both during a race and during the week and most of all, Rick needs to demand that Joonyer become a single focused driver giving up everything outside of working every day to better himself and deep six all of the unnecessary outside distractions. Make him live up to all of these terms and give him next year to show improvement in the car or think about other options for 2011. Joonyer does not need any more pats on the back, he needs a boot in the backsides and to be told (in very clear terms) that no team can afford to carry a non productive driver for but so long, no matter what his name and how many diecast he can sell. The name of the game is to win the frigging race and on that one Joonyer keeps frigging up.
