First ever Indian to drive F1.
Good luck to the guy.
Still, there is much business behind it (starting from Ecclestone who wants to organize a GP in Hyderabad), also considering that F1 passion is growing and growing in India.
THe guy seems cool, though, good luck to him from me too.
btw, where is this info?

Last year in Valencia I saw him make a dumb mistake on the straight after the 1st corner:
He was comfortably 2nd with numbers 3 and 4 way at least 4 sec. behind him when he spinned (without any apparant reason). When he continued he was 4th !!!!!
On TV-transmission of other WorldSeries races I saw more of these blunders !!!!!

He's not there yet!
Does this put any others in the frame now for a Minardi drive?? If so, who??
There is something to say for being a consisten driver.
Nothing wrong with ending 2 laps behind the driver in front .
Depending on who that driver is and at what position he's driving in.
It wasn't really Zsolt's fault that he was 2 laps down most of the time, that was a function of economics. I think he understood that better than Bruni. He held his course and collected the rarest of the rare, a Minardi point.
He had NO previous F1 experience and did not know the PS03. Btw, the PS03 was a dog!!!!!
IF he gets the seat, he will have tested before the season and will get the chance to race from the beginning of the season.
Maybe he will up his game (like Zsolt last year) !!!!
But....... maybe I'm wrong !!!:P
I meant Kiesa always finishes one or two laps behind his team mate. Zsolt didn't.
Zsolt is a better driver than Kiesa but I still want Badoer in the car.
For half the money he would have been welcome at Minardi.
