Seemingly not content with Renault, BMW, Ferrari and McLaren hogging the limelight with regards to driver changes for 2006 and 2007,
Whilst Alex Wurz is a very capable and mature racing driver, one has to ask what Alex has that Mark Webber doesn’t? I personally rate Wurz highly and will never forget the tussle he had with Michael Schumacher at Monaco in a poorish performing Benetton many years ago in 1998. But does the British team owner really rate Alex higher than Webber – who although has endured a difficult two seasons (almost) with the team – has done relatively well and is certainly committed to the squad?
Although Sir Frank has made some excellent decisions in the past with regards to driver line-ups, I do fear that his (and
Nico and Alex will perform to the best of their abilities, that goes without saying, but one has to wonder how the relationship between ‘no-bullshit, just-race’ driver Webber deteriated to this eventual change for 2007?
Any bets on a Fisichella and Webber Renault team next year?
