The title says it all.

Vote and explain svp.

I voted for Massa. Of course it all depends on how he fares against the Teflonso. But, I got the feeling that Felipe will be fired-up and driving better than ever.

Rubens will give the Hulk kid a few lessons, but I doubt the Williams will be able to fight for wins this year. Rubinho may have seen his best days already.

Bruno (if Campos actually show-up to race) will not be able to show much. The burden of the name wont bother him, but being dead last will hurt.

Di Grassi is a bit of a question mark, but I reckon he could be 2nd best if the Virgin car is at least a bit competitive. He will do well if he matches Glock.

Let me just consult my crystal ball which can see into the future... hehe

But, really, assuming Ferrari does the job with the F10 then I expect Massa to be on top of the Brazilians on the grid. Even if he doesn't beat Alonso in the inter-team battle I can still see him putting up quite a fight against the other drivers.

PERSONALLY, I want to live in a fantasy land where the new Williams is a championship contender and Barrichello's arrival will usher in a new era at the team and he'll be the one kicking ass like last year. Fingers crossed.

I think Rubens will have another good year. I really do.

Rubens, the sheer determination shown in the second half of the season shows he's still a top class driver, and now has a sense of urgency about him, wanting to get a hold of a title, I think it's all out for Rubens, and he may well have to push this years Williams to the limit.

I voted Senna, I think he will be a better driver....

But Massa will be regular points scorer/on the podium as he will have a better car.

Btw this is worth a look :S

I've dreamed for about a decade now of a competitive Williams and if anyone deserves it that's Rubens.

Massa will get the most points, however I think Rubens might be more impressive.

Felipe Massa should easily be the highest scoring Brazilian driver in F1 this year.

I wasnt asking just about points. Of course Massa should be the one with more points of the 4.

I voted for Massa simply because I think/hope he will have a great fight against Mercedes, McLaren & Co.

It surprises me that the margin is so high for Massa at the moment, given the severity of his accident. I fully hope for a 100% comeback from him, but I don't know if he'll be able to pull it together right away.

Thats v bad of Di Grassi Lotus.. :S Wonder what his reason is?

Anyway Im suprised at the lack of people voting Senna! I think if the team actually get to the grid, he will do well in the given car. From the sounds of it Massa might be in for a shock when he gets to drive the Ferrari :S

I voted for Senna, because i hope he will get his chance, and in case it happens, he will delivering the goods.
It's natural to choose Massa or Barrichello, they were really good last season, and they are in good cas too..

A front runner, a mid-gridder & 2 tail-enders. The only discussion here is who will be better between di Grassi & Senna.

This is hard. Massa in a Ferrari, Rubens in a mid-fielder and 2 rookies in probably the worst car of the grid. :eek:

I voted Massa for reasons stated above.
I just hope his injury hasn't affected him in any way. I'd love to see him back to his form and giving Alonso a hard time.

Rubens could pull a good race or two if Williams is any good. I'm wondering how he will react if he is involved in a fight with MS. All those old feelings might come up to the surface. It could be a good spectacle watching the oldest drivers in F1 fighting tooth and nails.

Define 'best'. The one with the most points? The one with the most wins or the one with the least crashes?

Castroneves


Possible... depends on whether the Ferrari is a winner in F1. If not, Helio has the largest chance to become champion in 2010 out of the active high-profile Brazilian open-wheel drivers.

The point is the point. I think the best is the same as "most points".IsnĀ“t it ?

Sorry fo OT. I agree, If the bloke could tell us the reason for the delays or what the heck the problem is it would be appriciated.
But you have to drag the words out of him (via mail.) He do everything to avoid it ? Strange ? It is very annoying. :evil:

I hope Senna turns out to be a star, but the obvious choice based on previous results is Massa.

He's probably one of the most talented drivers in the world. He started racing extremely late and after only 4 years in racing he's runner up in the GP2 championship :eek:

When he tested for Brawn GP he was only 0.2 seconds slower than Jenson driving a F1 car for the first time, a gap he could close easily if he got the 2nd seat at Brawn GP last year.

I'm sure that after a few years in F1 and when he gets a drive for a top team alongside Massa, Alonso or Lewis, he's going to suprise them. But at this very moment he's not at the top yet, but what can you expect from someone who has raced this little :)

Your pool is tainted :o

Why the hell are you placing Massa before Rubens :confused:

What are that chances that Rubens lucks again and has the-best-car-in-middle-sized-teams-for-two-years-in-a-row :confused:

Rubens chances will increase if there are lots of wet races.

Rubens, because the Williams will be better than the Ferrari and Flippo will be soundly beaten by Fernando.
