Ah ok. So Bourdais' pace was so impressive that day, you could see it while he charged back to 18th place?
And what exactly did the knowledge about the live timing tell you? It would be nice if you could enlighten us. Im not asking about that 'second fastest lap'. There were 52 other laps, you know.
Now, I'm not able to tell you what i was thinking, how I approached the race, or the information, it's over 4 years ago. And it's hardly anything like watching your first death in motorsport (Monza, 2000, when the marshal died. I was on holiday on Corfu Island, talked with the hotel manager to put on the F1 race on a channel if possible, he did. I watched though I didn't understand the language, learned later that a marshal died. That I do remember clearly!)
However, I do remember the impression I had after the race, after watching, hearing the commentators talk about "that other Toro Rosso". And the analysis made on the norwegian F1 forum after the race, when I, as an old Minardi-fan was over the moon. Got lectured about Bourdais.
What I dont understand though is, when Senna or Schumi or Lewis do a good race in the wet, wet weather driving is supposed to be the one thing that seperates the men fron the boys. But when Vettel does it in the wet, its all because the car perfectly suited the conditions. Mind boggling stuff.
For me, it's about what the other drivers do in the same race. If drivers like Hamilton had been high up the whole weekend, and clearly the fastest (with the exception of Vettel), I problably would've been more impressed. But when none of the usual wet weather warriors are near the top, it looks... weird.
Anyway - there are no point in going on - we will never agree anyhow, and it just drags out and out.
