    I think you are being very kind to Teixeira lol. He is a nice guy I know him personally but a 3. Anyway you have a great site and keep up the great work. So why so many engine blowups all of the sudden? Team/drivers want new fresh engines. You are right Kobayashi has been a disappointment. Poor Mortara taken out again. What luck. He too will come good.

    About Teixeira, I think he’s doing the best he can, staying out of trouble and finishing races. He definitely did a better job than Koba, Parente, Ricci and Nelson. I’m probably being too nice, as you say, but I think he is understanding his limitations at this stage and acting accordingly.

    Regarding the engines, I think this will be the subject of a post later this week. It is defintely due to the tight budgets the teams are facing.

  3. Fletcher says:

    That would be a good topic because as I believe those engines were bullet proof in years past and now they are blowing up in a spectacular way. Another topic to discuss is prize money. If Michel is saying in Autosport (Feb 2009) that he puts out 1.5 million euros as prize money and others saying there is no prize money well then someone is lying. Just food for thought.

  4. Fletcher says:

    Its on the Feb 26 2009 issue and he actually says it totals over 1.5 million euros. It’s an article about how other series stack up financially. Can team owners dispute that claim?

  5. gp2 insider says:

    I will find out from a team owner to double-check and get back to you. I know GP2 income statements perfectly and there is never any income from prize money or any similar concept – only driver revenues and team sponsors.

    As Fletcher says, your way too generous to Teixeira! lol He drove into his own team mate in qualifying, on the out lap!!! lmao! Surely you can’t get any worse then that?! 😀

  7. AMS says:

    Eyy Zuber and Glock did similar thing in 2007 😀 But yes , Teixeria needs to improve or will be a chicane the rest of the season.
