......chance to change the subject.
Writing this prior to the Hungarian race, anyone not going to be chuffed if (or maybe it should be 'when'?) BMW hit the top step??
Think Heidfeld stands a chance today - OK not as quick as the McLaren or the Ferrari over a race distance, but this is Hungary and once you get your nose in front it is damned hard to get passed.
Rememeber Thierry Boutsen back in the Williams?? Oh hell, that will get Williamrenalt all over my back digging up their past glory!
Point is - BMW have done a wonderful job this year, with two good drivers and a great little car. Wouldn't mind Heidfeld in a Ferrari - but I think his time is now.
Yes Boutsen drove for Williams, but they had Honda or Renault engines at the time...
Williams didn't use BMW engines until 2000, after using Mecachromes and Supertecs (owwww... those names hurt!).
However, BMW was is the sport in the 80s with a turbo engine. Nelson Piquet won their only driver's title to date in 1983! Can't remember if Brabham-BMW won the constructors' though.
if they have a chance this year it is now and with lewis needing to just stay ahead of his rivals and get a good score i think he has the best oppurtunity yet
the only thing against it is he is now on the dirty side of the grid and the mclarens start well so i think he will be looking more at a rear guard against kimi
