Tobias Hegewald. Why? Because his name reminds me of somebody and he kicks serious butt this season in F2.

All three of these guys ive raced with in karts, and had the opputunity to help them out as 9-10 year old kids. They are all younger then I am, and had the money behind them to get where they are. All talented extremely naturally gifted, and well spoken young men.

1) Robbie Wickens - Amazing shifter kart racer, whos parents mortgaged their house to fund his racing they believed in him that much

2) James Hinchcliffe - Average karted whos father realized karting gets you nowhere, and the best thing was to get out using the money their family had and get him into real cars.

3) Daniel Morad - Amazing kart racer. Daniel, and Robbie Wickens had some of the best battles ive ever seen in shifter karts. They were 1/2 back and forth for 6 years growing up together. Daniels family had money and were able to get him in the right rides, and he was able to produce results.

Nice original thread Ross :thumb:
When I firt saw that race, and saw Hegewald leading, I seriously thought "Is that Bram!?" but then I read it again :p

Adam Carroll MUST get a seat in 2010 after his showing in A1GP. He came out of nowhere and beat the reigning champ, his performance in Brands Hatch was amazing.

I also believe Conor Daly will do well for himself in the future.

Son of the most successful Republic of Irish F1 driver to date (you can tell by the tri-colour and the US flag together on the helmet and car). Causing a stir in the Star Mazda scene and also won the Walter Hayes FF1600 trophy in Silvertone, being the first and youngest American to do so.

I dont think Bruno Senna being in F1 will do him any good at all because people will always make the comparison between him and his uncle and doing that gets in the way of the job he should be doing.
