Anyone taking bets on how often he will be out paced by Heidfeld or if he will last the entire season. :lol

Sorry, my Canadien komrads, I think JV is lacking

past his prime :wall

sauber will still be a backmarker - bmw won't have time to really make significant changes for the upcoming season.

i'll take that wager that heidfeld will outpace JV. Count me in! (massa routinely outpaced him last season)

who knows, if he dyes his hair blonde or purple like the old days, he may get back to winning form :p

AFC,

I propose a friendly wager against your boy wonder, one Mr. Villeneuve.

I am willing to bet that Heidfeld will consistently outqualify and outrace JV this season. Not every single race or qualy, but the overall majority. Granted, Heidfeld has the personality of a log, but the boy is good. i'll give him that.

what say you, my northern comrade?
