Haltzenbach. I believe that you CAN compare the results of a young driver with those of an experienced one. If you cannot, who would ever waste money on an experienced driver? All the teams would sign rookies and, when that driver came last, say "it's OK, 24th for him, is as good as 1st for Vettel". But all teams want results, they want the highestt number of points they can get. Surely you are not saying that Renault replaced Nick with Bruno expecting to get WORSE results? That would be an extraordinary thing to do.
But even if you cannot compare the two, why would Renault take a risk on an unproven driver, over one who always scores good points? Surely money was the only motivating factor. Nick was being paid by Renault, Bruno brings with him four Brazilian sponsorships (so far). I'm afraid we all know why this happened.
Very few people here blame Bruno for Nick's predicament. But I think we might be allowed to point the finger at capitalism, and the unpleasantly corporate world of Formula 1 and those who run it.
