Here there will likely be a different situation. Unlike at McLaren and Ferrari where the four drivers are reasonably secure emotionally and contractually there is very much a feeling of last chance saloon over at Renault for Fisi. The tragedey of the once promising driver who had never been bested by his team mate only to have him destroyed by Alonso. A lesson for Hamilton here?
Fisi had been saying that this is going to be his season before he got into the car but now he’s not so sure. He feels the Renault are behind from the start and that’s one of those things that seems to really knock the wind out of his sails.
I’ve always got the impression with Fisi that if at the begining of the season he won the first three races on the trott (sometging that certainly seemed possible before the testing round) he would feel invincible and on the top of his game and so good that he would stop having to try. But that if he lost the first three races then he would write his chances off by suggesting that the team had sabotaged him and so there was basicaly no point trying. Either way he gives up much too easily.
And the problem is with such a hot young gun in the sister car Fisi won’t be able to slow down for a second. I think Fisi could retire this season.
