The accolades for Fernando continue! Piquet, Jr is OBVIOUSLY
a bit sour about Grosjean's success --not to mention Kimi's --but I think it's also OBVIOUS that he has NO PROBLEM with Fernando (He's said that many times before, but critics have spoken of him falsely saying that). I mean how could he have such good feelings and praise for the cheatin' stinker who masterminded his deliberate crash and ruined his F1 career? But there you go...
From Planet F1.com:However, Piquet Jr reckons Grosjean's success is thanks to the car and if former team-mate Fernando Alonso was driving the E20 Lotus would be leading the Championship. "Had Alonso been there he would be winning the Championship with that car," Piquet Jr told TotalRace.
"Sure he (Grosjean) has improved a lot but there is no phenomenon. Nothing compared to Alonso.
"He is luck is that after F1 he got another season in GP2, found a sponsor and returned to F1 as a paying driver, right?
"Then things were, how do you say, right in his career. Timing was very good for him."
He added: "He's had a lot of luck, came at a time with a team-mate who is a little weak and a very good car."
