So is Jenson any good or not?
After slating him for many years he actually seemed to have a pretty good season last year. He grew a beard, bought a camper van and seemed to have confronted a number of his demons. He actually went quite a bit quicker than his car at times.
All of this seemed to be a good starting point for 2008. Especially as his famed smooth style will probably work well now that there won’t be traction control.
I was starting to think better things about Jenson and then during the off season something happened. I watched Lewis Hamilton on Top Gear.
Lewis, with an oily and wet track, went as fast as Jenson had in the dry.
I know it isn’t the same as driving an F1 car but surely it’s a sign.
