ah, ok, cheers.
I always find this "japanese driver" thing annoying, so.
I've never seen anyone saying "xxx is best Belgian/Mexican driver", "can xxx be the best spanish driver?", etc. In fact it would be quite strange to ask "who's best british/french/brazilian driver", or refer to Lewis or Jense or Vergne or Fisi or whoever in a such context.
When Sato came, people said "best japanese driver" and refering to Nakajima sr, Suzuki, Ukyo or Tora.
When Nakajima jr came, people were referring to Sato, Ukyo, Suzuki, Nakajima sr.
When Kobayashi came, people were referring to Nakajima jr, Sato, Ukyo, Suzuki, Nakajima sr.
To me that's nothing but puzzling, I hope this nonsense stop soon. That autosport article bothering to mention all Japanese point scoring drivers is funny indeed to me. Usually I never think of Mansell, JB, Hill etc when evaluating Lewis, never think of Alonso etc when evaluating Alg, just as I never think of Sato, Suzuki etc when evaluating Kobayashi.
I think it's because Japan is outside of Europe. You never hear about each German driver that comes along, or British, or Italian..
If Gutierrez starts doing crazy things, people might compare him to Perez.. but again, it's outside Europe..
