Possibly true F3 Rocks. Personally I can't fathom why Neel Jani didn't feature on Dietrich Mateschitz's radar ahead of Sebastien Buemi unless - Helmut Marko?

Sutil had/ has better management perhaps. As for skills.. I am not totally convinced about Sutil either.

I think that Earl Bamber would have a good chance in F1, he's a very gifted driver and is still very young. Problem is that NZers can never get the sponsorship together for a crack at modern F1 (The obvious exception being Brendon Hartley).

Earl Bamber is only a teenager but I rate him highly. A very mature driver for his age.

Sev has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I think of the current crop Felipe Albuquerque is the one who'll be most sorely missed in F1.

His racing CV is immaculate, and if it wasn't for Red Bull deciding he wasn't the chosen one he could easily have been WSR champion and stably in GP2 now.

Dan Clarke will not be gracing an F1 grid any time soon... unfortunately he had to grace an A1GP one.

It's debatable whether 'grace' is the right word.

On a brighter note, Tonio Liuzzi did much better today than I expected, although the situation was complicated by red flags and this ability to use boost in qualifying for one race but not the other.

As much as I liked to see Liuzzi in front, I really do not like the power-boost laps. Anyway, Doornbos seems like the man to beat. I feel sorry for Neel that it has ended up the way it did for him. Just really difficult to pull out quick times with qualifying marred with red flags.

Carroll, Albuquerque & Doornbos spring to mind, I dont like Jani much, Andretti doesnt look anything special.

He's an Andretti though. In some people's mind that automatically means he's a potential race winner in anything from lawnmowers upwards. Not mine....

After Chengdu, I was really impressed by Prost Jr. He always showed very good pace in the rookies and was very strong in Kyalami. Portugal was a bit disappointing but this weekend he was really on fire, his pace in the two races was really impressive, it's a shame he had that electronic problem because I think he could have fought for second. I'm really interested to see how he evolves in the future. He has got great spped, needs to improve racecraft.

I also agree that Albuquerque and Bamber could be F1 material. Albuquerque has done a very strong season, especially considering that he is less experienced that most of the other guys. Bamber showed some really good things, but he is still a bit wild and needs to calm down a bit.

I think the others already had their chance, Jani, Carroll, or Doornbos. I think they are amazing drivers, they would be very competitive in F1, but you usually only get one chance in F1.

After seeing a fighting performance, I am willing to take back my comment... DC was a pleasure to watch yesterday, he was battling very hard.

I agree that after yesterday it's probably appropriate to withdraw the comment about the A1GP grid, but not F1. Dan will never make it there, not should he.

He did drive with some spirit yesterday. His pass on Australia into Paddock was a classic, even if John Martin left the door wide open for him and he did have fastest lap for a while. Ironically, it was Martin who took fastest lap in the end.

Don't forget either that Clarke knows Brands very well indeed, certainly the shorter Indy section, because that is where he won the Formula Ford Festival.

I'm not taking the F1 comment back, don't worry - it was the A1GP one I meant.

Yes he knew the track - it was the first time he had driven in a track he knew and it showed. He made a very good overtake and drove very quickly which was good to see after all the slagging off that people (me included ) have been doing.

He's not Kerr, Jarvis or Watts but he looked like an average replacement yesterday rather than a really inferior one as he did previously.

Ummm....I'd say he is a "Kerr" actually. RK isn't F1 material and he's struggling to go further than WSbyR and in his case I'm not sure that finances alone are the issue.

Adam Carroll looked F1 class in qually 2 for sure. What a wonderful lap that was to watch.
