    I will be playing the, 'i'm leaving' card to hopefully get free hd for X months, as then you get the dedicated sky F1 HD channel without the need for sky sports 1 and 2

    Whos doing the commentary and pre race affair for Sky? The lads on BBC made the show really, Sky will most probably be a massive let down.

    BBC Sport - Renault sign Romain Grosjean for 2012

    GP2 champion Romain Grosjean will drive for Renault, who will become Lotus in 2012, alongside returning 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen next season.

    Grosjean, 25, raced seven times for Renault in 2009 but failed to impress alongside team-mate Fernando Alonso.
    "There's a big grin on my face at the prospect of getting behind the wheel of next year's car," Grosjean said.
    The team's current line-up of Vitaly Petrov and Bruno Senna are currently without a drive for 2012.

    Take the words "Senna" out of his name and what do you have?....Bruno rubbish driver = FACT

    "Bruno Senna is willing to take a third driver role to remain in Formula 1 next season after missing out on a Lotus drive to Romain Grosjean."

    He lost out because he is rubbish and riding on the "senna" name...Yawn..

    Bruno Senna would accept third driver role to stay in Formula 1 in 2012 - F1 news - AUTOSPORT.com

    Respect to both Vettel and Button, it's rare you get to see much on a Sunday beyond the corporate grind, so to see them off duty and on such good form is a rare treat.

    Vettel seems a good old boy when he's not waving his finger about the place, and whilst I don't follow him on the track, the more I see of him the more I like him. As german folk go, he's pretty funny, and before anyone plays the race card, my grandparents are german so I have first hand experience to refer back to!

    i agree in some respect reps but i do think he is a good driver(not the likes of lewis, vettel, button, nando's caliber) he has shown some promise this year since coming in for heidfeld. thing is with the lesser teams i.e not red bull, maclaren, ferrari, merc i find the drivers are just drivers on the circuit, there has been no driver this year that has come from a regular 10+ position on the grid and burst into a race and won so there is no driver out there that has shone last season, to me last season was all about 4 drivers and thats it, you never seen coverage of a driver for Lotus who shows real promise to win a grand prix or anywhere near the likes of putting the car on the first 3 rows of the grid, it was all the top teams this year and all about red bull.

    im sure if senna was given a red bull he would have beaten the likes of petrov, rosberg, nando easily with a good car but thats not the case unless renault have an amazing car next year which i hope they do as red bull has had the spotlight for the past 3 years now and its getting boring

    Had to post it as its kinda funny :-)

    As for senna, i dont really see anything amazing at all in his driving. I mean lets be honest, there is a handfull of drivers out there who have something to give the F1 and im not just talking about the top runners. There is new and old drivers on the grid who show real talent and a spark but for me ive seen nothing but ordernary from bruno. Sure hes a nice guy an all but his driving is just plain boring / lackluster.
