Okay, a few more words: in the early part of the race we heard Coulthard’s mechanic say ‘we think Kubica behind you is two-stopping’, ie ‘let him past’. But it seems that Kubica was one-stopping (I think). In which case, he did amazingly well.
All right, the first lap incident was his fault. But he climbed back up the pack to get within ten seconds of his team-mate. And okay, changing to dry tyres was a bit rash, but again he climbed back up the pack as fast as he could to finish 13th.
Overall, this guy’s really great, but he’s still learning and making mistakes. One problem it seems he’s going to have, that he won’t have control over, is that he’s not very marketable.
