This has to happen – Badoer Out, Bourdais In

{ Posted on Aug 26 2009 by dScribe }

It’s great that Ferrari decided to repay Luca Badoer’s years of service as a test driver by giving him the chance to replace the injured Felipe Massa in the Spanish Grand Prix and at Spa….. BUT, his performance was so bad it’s just embarrassing.

In my mind the only smart thing Ferrari can do is get Sebastien Bourdais in the car. He’s the only driver with recent F1 experience that has ties to Ferrari. He has experience of the Ferrari engine through driving for Scuderia Toro Rosso this year and he also has the same manager as Felipe Massa – Nicolas Todt (Jean Todt’s son).

The only thing that should stop it happening is any contractual obligations or conflicts.

Some would say that Nelson Piquet Jr is an option and while he may be, it just doesn’t make as much sense as Bourdais.

Then you have Anthony Davidson stepping up to the plate saying he’s the man for Ferrari. That’s almost laughable but then again I’m sure he’d do better than Badoer.

I feel bad for coming down on Luca Badoer so much as he seems like a nice guy and has been so loyal to Ferrari (then again who wouldn’t be – I’m sure he has a nice pay packet ;) ) – but Ferrari deserves better results than last place…

  1. What about Marc Gene? He is Ferrari’s other test driver

  2. Antlion – I dunno.. would Marc Gene really be much better? I don’t think he’s had a lot of track time with this years’ car either.

    Love the new Giancarlo Fisichella rumours though. An Italian driving a Ferrari in Italy would be magic! :) Plus he’s still a good driver :)
