    I think stepping out of a racing series in order to be a reserve driver for an F1 team is a bit toxic to be honest.
    Drivers that are in GP2 alongside their duties as a reserve driver fare much better in securing a race seat.

    The ones that spend the year sat in the garage watching tend to get forgotten about and go stale.

    If you get a Quali Place, you can get a Race Pace

    Good read ;). Also, Nick Heidfeld nearly signed for McLaren in 2002 only to be pipped by Kimi. He would have surely won a race in that car.
  4. Also close to a race win... Sergio Perez Malaysia 2012. If he didn't make the mistake he could possibly have won the race.
