After all the Jenson-bashing (or criticism of the unnecessary media attention on him) we do on the sofa, I thought it should only be fair that we praise him for his performance yesterday.
He out-qualified and out-raced is teammate, perhaps out-performed his own car, did some great over-taking moves, might have been on the podium had it not been for traffic, and was honest, amusing and likeable in the TV interviews afterwards. Yes, Rubens was fuelled heavier and was slowly making his way forwards, but Jenson passed two Renaults in two laps. What’s more, the focus on his performance by the itv crew was justified for once – he performed exceptionally well, and I actually wanted to hear them talk about it, and to him, at the end. Nonetheless, Driver of the Day is surely Massa?
